If I was working on a workout music time capsule‚Ä"trying to show future generations what folks listened to in the gym in 2012 - the highlights from August alone would nearly do the trick.
In this month's top 10, running favorites LMFAO, Flo Rida, and Pink all made appearances. Pitbull turned up twice‚Ä"once in a remix and once with Shakira. And, the year's two biggest hits ("Call Me Maybe" and "Somebody That I Used to Know") were both reinvented as club tracks.
Here's the full list, according to votes placed at Run Hundred--the web's most popular site for workout music.
Pitbull & Shakira - Get It Started - 129 BPM
The Wanted - Chasing the Sun - 129 BPM
Calvin Harris & Ne-Yo - Let's Go - 130 BPM
