The summer possesses a strange magic that allows it to draw pop songs out of the woodworkâ€"even from acts that aren't necessarily pop acts. Even if the season itself isn't pulling the strings, music lovers are definitely gravitating to big choruses from a variety of sources. In this playlist, we recap the best of those for working out in June.
Justin Timberlake's new singleâ€"from the Trolls movieâ€"is the single most popular song in the gym right now (and an early contender for song of the summer). Elsewhere on the conventional pop front, you'll find a blast of sass from Meghan Trainor and a slow, but feisty number from Pink. Beyond the Top 40, there's a comeback track from pop punk favorites Good Charlotte and an indelible melody from Swedish trio Peter, Bjorn & John. Taken as a whole, the list features an unreasonable number of memorable hooks. So, when you need an instant boost for your summer workout sessions, here are the month's top tunesâ€"according to the votes logged on workout music site Run Hundred.
