If you need help putting together your perfect workout playlist, these are the songs most Spotify users love.

Walt Hickey of FiveThirtyEight used a dataset from Spotify programmer Paul Lamer to find all playlists with the word “workout” in the title. Hickey then deleted playlists that didn’t have at least one hour of music, as well as all playlists that didn’t have at least one play per week. Narrowing it down, Hickey found the songs that came up the most and compiled the perfect playlist based on them. Here are the 10 songs that are most often listened to while exercising:
