If an uptempo song is getting lots of love on the radio, there's a good chance it will be in heavy rotation at the gym as well. And while Top 40 chart toppers are obvious choices when it's time to break a sweat, they lose their charm pretty fast when you hear them everywhere you go. To extend the lives of your favorite hits and mix things up a little, this workout playlist focuses on tracks that have been getting attention primarily from blogs, college radio stations, and record stores, including a surprising collaboration between Capital Cities and André 3000, the latest from Lauryn Hill, and a late-night epic from M83. Here's the full list:

Snow Patrol - Called Out in the Dark - 121 BPM

Scissor Sisters - Only The Horses - 127 BPM

Mika - Live Your Life - 104 BPM

M83 - Midnight City - 105 BPM

Tegan & Sara - Closer - 138 BPM

Foster the People - Call It What You Want - 114 BPM

Lauryn Hill - Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix) - 113 BPM

The Postal Service - A Tattered Line of String - 141 BPM

The Gaslight Anthem - "45" - 90 BPM

Capital Cities & Andre 3000 - Farrah Fawcett Hair - 125 BPM

The day when I received the device, I load all my favorites music in it, This device built-in 8GB after I load 500 songs, there are still over 6GB memory left, I will load other lovely songs in future when I collect more. I often use this music player in two way, one is that I can plug the earphone into the earphone jack, listen to music by earphone, The other way is very cool that I strongly recommend to all of you, if your car has audio port, you could connect the music player with your car by audio cable, after that you could enjoy your favorites songs on your car.Check the products here: http://boseworkout.com
