The Definitive List of the Best Running Songs

It may be time to update your exercise anthems.

If you need a new motivational playlist, these hits offer a great starting point.

Spotify recently revealed the most popular songs people listened to while running in 2015.

The music streaming service compiled and analysed data from its Running feature - which uses tempo and beat to find the best music for your run - as well playlists created by Spotify users containing any variation of the word "running".

From this they determined the most common songs to get your feet moving.

The list was dominated by songs by female artists, including Beyonce, Rihanna, Missy Eliott, Sia, and Britney Spears.

The #1 song on the list was 'Run The World' by Beyonce - and with its hard-hitting beat and 'I can do anything' lyrics, we're not surprised it is the mother of all jogging anthems.

Sounds like it's time to put on those running shoes and hit the pavement.
