Workout tracks

TOP 10 WORKOUT TRACKS FOR AUGUST: If you were working on a workout music time capsule—trying to show future generations what folks listened to in the gym in 2012—the highlights from August alone would nearly do the trick, says Chris Lawhorn, founder of the Run Hundred site, who compiles these monthly charts from the votes of visitors to the site. In this month’s top 10, running favorites LMFAO, Flo Rida and Pink all made appearances, while Pitbull turns up twice—once in a remix and again with Shakira. The Wanted return with the follow-up to “Glad You Came,” and the year’s two biggest hits, “Call Me Maybe” and “Somebody That I Used to Know,” have both been reinvented as club tracks. Here's the full list:

Flo Rida, “Whistle” – 103 BPM
Pitbull & Shakira, “Get It Started” – 129 BPM
The Wanted, “Chasing the Sun” – 129 BPM
Calvin Harris & Ne-Yo, “Let's Go” – 130 BPM
Pink, “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” – 113 BPM
Owl City & Carly Rae Jepsen, “Good Time” – 126 BPM
Pitbull, “Back in Time (Play-N-Skillz Remix)” – 128 BPM
Carly Rae Jepsen, “Call Me Maybe (Coyote Kisses Remix)” – 124 BPM
LMFAO, “Sorry for Party Rocking (Wolfgang Gartner Remix)” – 130 BPM
Gotye & Kimbra, “Somebody That I Used to Know (Tiesto Remix)” – 129 BPM

Meanwhile, at the Toluca Lake Sports Center, we’re spinning merrily along to The Black Keys’ “Lonely Boy” (still), the Rolling Stones’ “She’s So Cold” (a perennial summer burner) and a trio of new faves, Charlie Mars’ “How I Roll,” Passion Pits’ “Take a Walk” and Divine Fits’ “Flaggin’ a Ride.” (8/17a)
