The Top 10 Workout Songs for November 2014
Check out the latest releases from Iggy Azalea, Calvin Harris, Taylor Swift, and more in our monthly workout music round-up
This month's top 10 exercise playlist makes three things clear.
1. Iggy Azalea isn't going anywhere. The Levi's model and rap phenomenon shows up in the list below with two different collaborators-Rita Ora and Jennifer Lopez.
2. Calvin Harris is quickly becoming the face of electronic dance music. He also turns up twice this month-in a Top 40 hit alongside John Newman and a club track with Alesso and Hurts. (If you're into EDM, be sure to also check out this All-Electronic Workout Playlist).
3. 128 beats per minute (BPM) is the Iggy Azalea and Calvin Harris of tempos. Simply put, it's omnipresent. Seven of the ten songs below (including new tracks from Taylor Swift and Pitbull) are within a few beats of this tempo, which is the perfect pace for most workouts, from cardio to kickboxing.
Whatever this month's top songs lack in tempo variety, they make up for in the genre, thanks to a woozy remix from Tove Lo, some catchy indie folk from Vance Joy, and the fervent rock of Walk the Moon. Whether it's the eclectic mix that draws you in or the pop music beats, there's definitely something here to invigorate your fitness routine.
