The Ultimate Playlist to Propel Your Next Run
Whether you're a long-distance runner, you alternate studio workouts with outdoor runs, or you're new to running altogether, one thing is for certain: you need a kickass playlist. Few things can get you as amped to run as the right combination of songs. There are so many great playlists out there that are tailored to specific genres, decades, and artists (this Olivia Rodrigo playlist kills it every time). But what if you're craving a little '80s action, some alternative tracks, and today's top hits at the same time?
Our running playlist includes a little bit of everything. From Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" and "West Coast" by OneRepublic to "Super Bass" by Nicki Minaj and "I Want Love" by Jessie J, this 72-track playlist includes pop throwbacks, a classic from Whitney Houston (yeah, we went there), and a sprinkling of this year's chart-topping songs. Leave it to Rihanna, Beyoncé, Eminem, and the Jonas Brothers to get you off the couch, out the door, and hitting the pavement.
Fall in love with running (and crush your mile time) with these bops ahead. Just be sure to download the free Spotify app so you can stream this playlist at the gym or on your favorite running path. Lace up your sneakers, put on your headphones, and hit play.
