Give Your Playlist A Remix Refresh
When looking for new workout tunes, folks will often gravitate to ones by artists they already know and like. The advantage of a remix is that it goes one step further by providing a song you already know you like—albeit in a new form that makes it sound new again. This week, we’re leveraging this existing affection by compiling a running playlist featuring recent remixes exclusively.
The list kicks off with an aptly-titled tune from Taylor Swift and cools down with a slow-burning track by Thirty Seconds to Mars. In between, you’ll find a second song from BloodPop (if you include the Taylor Swift track above) and a Bruno Mars remix with a verse from Cardi B that may be more familiar than Mars’ original solo version. Finally, this list includes a range of collaborations in which Selena Gomez, Maroon 5 and ZAYN square off against Marshmello, SZA and Sia, respectively.
When your motivation is lacking, remixes make for a simple way to propel yourself out the door because they eliminate the guesswork in finding musical accompaniment for your run. To that end, when you need a small win to get larger wheels in motion, a multitude of options await below.
