You know how in the summer, we have those days that we’re too busy to work out, but it doesn’t matter, because it’s summer. We’re active – out and about being social – and somehow it all just works. When the temperature drops however, if we don’t have our extra little bit of motivation, we’re done for and the term “blob” takes on a whole new meaning. So, it’s no wonder that I’m currently infatuated with Run Hundred, the web’s most popular workout music blog. Each and every month, a new list, constructed from subscriber votes, is generated of the must-haves you need in your workout playlist. Below, straight from Run Hundred, is what was trending in October (yes, I realize I am officially behind!)…
This month's list brings two questions to mind:
#1. For how many consecutive months will David Guetta turn up in these top 10 lists? (His new track with Usher made the cut--and he just barely missed making it again with his recent Nicki Minaj collaboration).
#2. 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, each has begun being billed as the artist on his tracks--rather than being credited as the producer/remixer, which was the case a couple years ago.)
This month's top 10 is rounded out by a new track from LMFAO, a Britney remix, and a song by Young The Giant--brought most folks' attention by the band's surprise inclusion on this year's MTV Video Music Awards.
