The 10 most popular workout songs
US digital music provider, Spotify, has identified the 10 most popular songs to work out to. Do you agree? Would you like to add your own faves to the list?
Spotify is a commercial music streaming service providing Digital Rights Management-protected content from record labels including Sony, EMI, Warner Music Group and Universal. That said, the bad news is we cannot access it from South Africa.
Too bad, but with 24 million active users across the globe (except, as said, in SA or the rest of Africa) the digital music provider released some interesting tidbits with their rankings.
According to TheGreatist, pump-up tracks like Eminem’s “Till I Collapse” and the “Rocky” classic “Eye of the Tiger” were favoured most by men, while women's playlists included Rihanna's "We Found Love".
The most popular track of all is "Can’t Hold Us" by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.
Spotify also found that women were more likely to pick music they could listen to synchronously - i.e. songs they can exercise to in time to the beat.
