The top 10 workout songs for October

Chris Lawhorn
special to the daily

For how many consecutive months will David Guetta turn up in these top 10 lists? (His new track with Usher made the cut, and he just barely missed making it again with his recent Nicki Minaj collaboration).

Will Calvin Harris, Benny Benassi or Afrojack be the one that unseats him? (All three are making their second appearances on the charts this month. And, like Guetta, each has begun being billed as the artist on his tracks, rather than being credited as the producer/remixer, which was the case a couple years ago.)

This month’s top 10 is rounded out by a new track from LMFAO and a Britney remix. A song by Young The Giant brought most folks’ attention by the band’s surprise inclusion on this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

Here’s the full list, according to votes placed at

Rihanna and Calvin Harris, “We Found Love”; Dev, “In the Dark”; Afrojack and Eva Simons, “Take Over Control”; LMFAO, “Sexy and I Know It”; Chris Brown and Benny Benassi, “Beautiful People”; Shortee and Faust, “Friday Night Special”; Kelly Rowland and Lil Wayne, “Motivation”; Britney Spears, “I Wanna Go”; Young The Giant, “My Body”; and David Guetta and Usher, “Without You.”
