What are you listening to right now. The songs of this summer are all over the place, with something for just about every taste. What’s stuck in your head? Better yet, what’s got your blood pumping. There are several serious bops this year, from Lizzo’s “About Damn Time” to Florence and the Machine’s “Free” to Beyonce’s “Break My Soul” to DNCE’s “Move,” and of course, Stranger Things has a nearly 40-year-old song trending with Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill.” When you’re running up that hill, what’s in your ears? We’ve got some workout playlists to keep you moving all summer long.
According to Men’s Health Magazine, the best workout songs of 2022 are loud and brash. The list includes songs by artists like Jack White, JAWNY (featuring Beck), Black Light Smoke and Léah Lazonick, The Linda Lindas, PUP, Soul Glo, Heriot, and Action Bronson. If this list feels a little heavy handed to you, don’t worry, there are plenty of other playlists out there!
Amanda Kloots has a workout playlist that’s lighthearted, heavy on the pop, and features songs that are a bit of a throwback. Think “Titanium” by David Guetta (feat. Sia), “HandClap” by Fitz and the Tantrums, “Black Widow” by Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora, ”Crazy in Love” by Beyonce (feat. Jay-Z) and “Viva La Vida” by Coldplay.
ASweatLife has a playlist that’s also loaded with pop but somewhat more up to the minute. It’s got songs like “Music for a Sushi Restaurant” by Harry Styles, “No One Dies from Love” by Tove Lo, “Toxic Pony” by ALTEGO (Mashup of Britney Spears and Ginuwine), “Move” by DNCE, “Message in a Bottle (Fat Max G Remix)” by Taylor Swift, “Used to Know Me” by Charli XCX, and more.
If your tastes are more alt/indie, there’s a workout playlist from Redlist for you! It features songs like “Burning Bridges” by Sigrid, “Teletype” by Everything Everything, “Warpaint” by Monophonics and Kelly Finnigan, “Rock the Casbah” by the Clash, “Unnecessary Drama” by Belle and Sebastian, and many others.
Country music can be challenging to work out to, but Shape Magazine’s got a playlist to cover country fans, too. These songs aren’t necessarily new, but when it’s Miranda Lambert singing “Fastest Girl in Town,” Florida Georgia Line with “Cruise,” “Highway Don’t Care” by Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift and Keith Urban, “Redneck Woman” by Gretchen Wilson, “Feel that Fire” by Dierks Bentley, “Before He Cheats” by Carrie Underwood, and more, who cares?
