This month's top 10 list should have a little something for everybody. It's got a song you hear everywhere (from PSY), a comeback single (from Christina Aguilera), and a wildcard country track (from Dierks Bentley). There's also a crossover hit ("Only the Horses") and a song popularized by a Kia commercial ("In My Mind"). Lastly, there's Dragonette with the month's number one track. The group isn't a household name, and the song is not from the Top 40—which means it had to top the chart the old-fashioned way: through sheer awesomeness.
Here's the full list, according to votes placed at Run Hundred--the web's most popular site for workout music.
Dragonette - Let It Go - 131 BPM
Christina Aguilera - Your Body - 104 BPM
OneRepublic - Feel Again - 70 BPM
Dierks Bentley - 5-1-5-0 - 118 BPM
PSY - Gangnam Style - 134 BPM
Scissor Sisters - Only The Horses - 127 BPM
Flo Rida - Whistle (Disfunktion Remix) - 128 BPM
Ivan Gough, Feenixpawl & Georgi Kay - In My Mind (Axwell Remix) - 127 BPM
Enrique Iglesias & Sammy Adams - Finally Found You - 128 BPM
Maroon 5 - One More Night - 93 BPM
