With the Super Bowl just around the corner, we wanted to recap a few of halftime star Lady GaGa’s finest moments. Owing to a string of uptempo singles and ferocious vocals, she’s been an instant favorite with runners looking for musical motivation from the moment she arrived on the scene. To that end, we’ll be surveying a few of the tracks that have rocked your workouts over the years–including a few you’ll likely hear during the big game.

As you’d expect from her upcoming performance, this playlist is built around the biggest singles from each of her albums: “Poker Face,” “Bad Romance,” “Born This Way,” “Applause,” and “Perfect Illusion.” In the mix, you’ll find one collaboration with a rumored guest peformer (Tony Bennett) and another from last year’s halftime highlight (Beyoncé). Lastly, you’ve got a few contenders for the wildcard slot. Will she break out beloved early single “Just Dance?” Will she go for a slow burn with “Yoü and I?” Will she close things out with the climactic and aptly-titled-for-a-halftime-performance “The Edge of Glory?” Fire up these tunes in the meantime to get psyched for your workout and the show, then tune in to find out.
