While every month brings a crop of new tunes, May has arrived with an unusually high number of fast songs and remixes. Both are ideal for your workout, since quick tunes naturally lend themselves to momentum and remixes can give proven hits (and you!) a second wind.

On the uptempo end of things, you'll find songs above 140 beats per minute (BPM) from pop phenom Meghan Trainor, rocker Florence + The Machine, and newcomer Katy Tiz. In the remix department, you'll find a club cut from Kelly Clarkson, a collaboration between Maroon 5 and Nicki Minaj, and a version of "Uptown Funk" that dials up the intensity of an already boisterous track.

Just as a remix can breathe new life into a familiar favorite, a few new songs can liven up an entire playlist. So take a listen to some this month's highlights, see what moves you, and put the winners to work. Here's the full list (according to votes placed at Run Hundred):

Natalie La Rose & Jeremih - Somebody - 105 BPM

Meghan Trainor - Dear Future Husband - 158 BPM

Mumford & Sons - The Wolf - 153 BPM

Maroon 5 & Nicki Minaj - Sugar (Remix) - 121 BPM

LunchMoney Lewis - Bills - 126 BPM

Florence + The Machine - Ship to Wreck - 142 BPM

Tove Lo - Talking Body - 120 BPM

Kelly Clarkson - Heartbeat Song (Nebuer Remix) - 135 BPM

Katy Tiz - Whistle (While You Work It) - 162 BPM

Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars - Uptown Funk (Dave Aude Remix) - 124 BPM

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 :
