Happy Wednesday, lovelies!

A couple of weeks ago I asked you to tell me your favorite workout song of 2012 for a chance to win a pair of custom tangle-free Apple earbuds from Etsy shop owner Holly Bertin of TangleFreeEarbuds.

Well, the drawing winner has been chosen and notified (congratulations, sunshinebabe!) and now I have the top 20 2012 workout songs – a great mix of rock, pop, and even country – sure to get you moving as we walk/run/dance into 2013!

Remember, for a song to qualify it had to be released in 2012. So, regardless of how awesome they were (and I thank everyone for submitting!), some of the songs didn’t make the cut.

Below are your favorite workout songs of 2012, in no particular order! Check them out and grab the ones you think will help keep you motivated whether you like to walk, jog or run, dance, do aerobics, or weight lift.

(Also, I added a few of my own because, hey – I’ve been rocking out, too!)

1. “Army of Me” by Christina Aguilera

2. “Kings & Queens” by Audio Adrenaline

3. “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” by Kelly Clarkson

4. “Gangnam Style” by Psy

5. “50 Ways to Say Goodbye” by Train

6. “Give Your Heart a Break” by Demi Lovato

7. “Southern Comfort Zone” by Brad Paisley

8. “Feel Again” by OneRepublic

9. “Part of Me” by Katy Perry

10. “On My Way Downtown” – by Lucero

11. “Madness” by Muse

12. “Some Nights” by Fun

13. “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen

14. “Scream” by Usher
