10 Songs for Aerobic Dancing

There are two tempos that dominate club music: 80 BPM and 128 BPM. In the former, you'll find a load of hip hop songs. In the latter, you can find virtually every techno remix. There are several factors that account for their prominence. But, the consequence here is that these are the speeds at which most dancing is done. I realize this is a rather clinical look into what might otherwise be a world of sensual rhythm. But, I mention all of this by way of introducing a list of ten songs that clock in at 135 BPM. Using them in a dance workout will get you moving a bit faster than you might during a night out But,
they aren't so fast that you'll be tuckered out after a few songs.
1. Prince - I Would Die 4 U
2. Britney Spears - 3
3. The Killers - Human (Ferry Corsten Club Remix)
4. Madonna - Lucky Star
5. Tiesto - Just Be
6. The Hives - Hate To Say I Told You So
7. ABBA - Does Your Mother Know
8. Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Rich
9. The Chemical Brothers - Setting Sun
10. Angelo Venuto - Sweet Caroline
