Playlist: The Best Workout Songs for October 2011


This month's workout playlist brings two questions to mind:  First, how many consecutive months will David Guetta turn up in these top 10 lists? (His new song with Usher made the cut, and he just barely missed making it again with his recent Nicki Minaj collaboration). And second, will Calvin Harris, Benny Benassi, or Afrojack be the one that unseats him? (All three are making their second appearances on the charts this month. And, like Guetta, they’re all being billed as the artist rather than the producer/remixer on their hot new songs.)

Here's the full list, according to votes placed at, the web's most popular workout music website.

Rihanna & Calvin Harris - We Found Love - 128 BPM

Afrojack & Eva Simons - Take Over Control - 128 BPM

Dev - In The Dark - 125 BPM

David Guetta & Usher - Without You - 128 BPM

LMFAO - Sexy And I Know It - 129 BPM

Chris Brown & Benny Benassi - Beautiful People - 129 BPM

Kelly Rowland & Lil Wayne - Motivation (Rebel Rock Remix) - 130 BPM

Shortee & Faust - Friday Night Special - 133 BPM

Young The Giant - My Body - 130 BPM
