It takes a couple minutes to get going. And it doesn't exactly have a chorus. But, "A Dustland Fairytale" by The Killers was voted the best new song for working out—thanks to its rollicking second half. So, it's a great song for getting warmed up. Below that you'll find another ten songs with the identical tempo (135 BPM), to keep you moving thereafter.
MC's resident DJ Chris Lawhorn weeds through the Top 40 charts to find the best new workout music. The songs are organized, by beats per minute, into playlists designed to match the speed of your routine, while maximizing its results.
Chris Lawhorn spent his teens playing in punk and folk bands in Fort Wayne, IN. Apart from the occasional solo album, the rocking has taken a backseat to deejaying and production for his Case/Martingale label. Thankfully, this means that time once spent sleeping in the back of a van has since been freed up to scour places like Buenos Aires and Osaka for new music.
Chris has a bachelor's degree in English and Telecommunications from Ball State University. It finally went to use in creating RunHundred.com - a Web site that helps people find music that fits the pace of their workouts.
