A great workout playlist provides two things: familiarity and freshness. While your current favorite songs pick up your spirits, new contenders keep you on your toes. Taken individually, the songs that made this year's top 10 are each great picks for topping off an existing mix. As a whole, though, they might work even better-as they nail both criteria for a great workout playlist.

On the familiar side of things, you'll find pop stars like Demi Lovato and One Direction. You'll also find breakthrough hits from new acts like Andy Grammer and Jess Glynne. Lastly, you'll find remixes that give a second wind to big singles like "Heartbeat Song" and "Uptown Funk."

On the fresh side, there's a club collaboration pairing The Magician with Years and Years. The only rock band to make the cut-Walk the Moon-did it without the help of its smash "Shut Up and Dance." Lastly, newcomer Katy Tiz nabbed the number two spot with an unusually fast pop song (and almost no help from Top 40 radio).

Each new year finds countless folks resolving to get (or stay) shape. If you're still making resolutions, you can score your musings on the last year with some of its musical highlights. Then use the best of 2015 to power you into 2016.

I bought these headphones to use on a cross-country flight for work, since I wanted a good pair of noise-cancelling headphones. I really enjoyed them, they are very comfortable, and enclose my ears completely. The noise-cancelling function works really well, it made the engine noise disappear, and I was able to enjoy the movie I was watching without turning the volume all the way up.Great headphones for the money. I would definitely recommend them. check the products HERE :
