Go ahead and set up a new playlist: “The best gym songs of 2013.” Our friends over at Spotify — a digital music service — have compiled the most popular workout songs of 2013. These are the jams that kept us pumped and on pace — whether we were trying to finish strong during the last minute on the treadmill or stacking more weight on to the leg press.

Scientific research even shows that listening to music with fast beats (i.e. hip hop and pop) can result in working out harder and faster. We’re not sure what 2014 has in store for us on the Billboard charts — will Miley still be stirring the rumor mills? Will Kim Kardashian and Kanye (Kimye) make a duet? But, what we can bet on is having a good sound system to bring to the gym with us will never go out of style.
