Top 10 120-130 BPM Songs

Here’s a list of songs that range from the standard 120 bpm (beats per minute) to an impressive 130 bpm in tempo. It’s a community list because other types of lists can’t have more than 10 items added & there are lots of items to add on this list due to what it’s about.

The Top Ten

1 When Love Takes Over  - David Guetta When Love Takes Over  - David Guetta Cover Art

This is an extremely catchy song that was released in 2010 & played at an impressive tempo of 130 bpm. Yet it sampled Clocks by Coldplay which came out more than 7 years earlier (in 2002 - though that’s 131 bpm), but he did it well & made a great new mix out of it & turned it into an entirely new yet dancy song. Plus Kelly Rowland’s feature & vocals were great too & really fit the purpose.

2 Sexy Chick - David Guetta & Akon Sexy Chick - David Guetta & Akon Cover Art

To keep this list clean, the title of this song is sexy chick instead of the B word & it’s played at 130 bpm with catchy tunes & a dance rhythm. It’s enough to satisfy anyone craving dance music in general.

3 Play Hard - David Guetta Play Hard - David Guetta Cover Art

Released in 2011, Play Hard is played at 130 bpm though it sampled Better Off Alone by Alice Deejay (DJ) which played at 137 bpm (which this list isn’t about) & still decided to turn it into another catchy song.

4 Party Rock Anthem - Lmfao Party Rock Anthem - Lmfao Cover Art

Based on this list it looks like I might not be a big fan of this tempo to be honest.

Released in 2010 it played at 130 bpm & was a banger of the decade & it lived up to its name. The band had a vulgar name but the song was a hit & became a meme & was played at many places.

5 Sexy & I Know It - LMFAO Sexy & I Know It - LMFAO Cover Art

Their other big song which played at the same tempo of 130 bpm, it’s a party rocker & a banger that gets one moving (yet working out like they said).

6 Boys & Girls - Pixie Lott Boys & Girls - Pixie Lott Cover Art

A decent song from Pixie Lott otherwise known as Judy in the Fred movies on Nickelodeon. It reminded me of I Want It All from High School Musical 3: Senior Year as well as Shut Up & Drive by Rihanna (which played at 133 bpm) & Blue Monday by New Order in their melodies & was the song she used near the end of the 1st movie (which gained notorious ratings). I know I said a lot, but the fact that this song played at 130 bpm & has decent tunes put it up here.

7 Whoomp! There It Is - Tag Team Whoomp! There It Is - Tag Team Cover Art

An oldie but good & well-paced, at 129 bpm which’s good & it’s a catchy song to enjoy & dance to. Yet the music video showed guys dancing & it was even played on the film Elf & the guys were dancing in it too.

8 Who Let the Dogs Out - Baha Men Who Let the Dogs Out - Baha Men Cover Art

An iconic song that became a meme even before the 2010’s ever existed. It played at 129 bpm (though the Kids Bop version played at 130 bpm).

9 Give It All You Got - Afro Rican

A splendid party song to play & had an impressive tempo of 129 bpm.

10 Supalonely - BENEE Supalonely - BENEE Cover Art

A quality Indie-pop song from BENEE featuring Gus Dapperton with catchy tunes & a tempo ranging at 129 bpm with a dance genre.

The Newcomers

? Don't Stop the Party - Pitbull Don't Stop the Party - Pitbull Cover Art
? How You Like That - Blackpink How You Like That - Blackpink Cover Art

A new hit by Blackpink, played at 130 bpm & has a Christmas vibe to it. Reminds of Tchaikovsky's Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy. Yet it came out on June so we have an early Christmas song to play this year.

The Contenders

11 Elastic Heart - Sia Elastic Heart - Sia Cover Art

The song (which apparently sampled the lyrics from Another One Bites the Dust by Queen) was played at 130 bpm though it sounds only half as fast in snare beats.

12 Wild Ones - Flo Rida Wild Ones - Flo Rida Cover Art

A classic from Flo Rida. It played at 127 bpm & talked about the Wild Ones. Like you’ll think about the motorbike gang of that name from SpongeBob SquarePants until you remembered they were actually the Mild Ones.

13 Summertime Sadness - Lana Del Rey Summertime Sadness - Lana Del Rey Cover Art

Now that shouldn't be on here though you're probably talking about the remix by Cedric Gervais which played at 126 bpm. Yet it’s super catchy & good for dancing as well. The original version however played at 112 bpm which’s too slow-paced to be on here.

14 Lifted - SVRITE Lifted - SVRITE Cover Art

An indie hip hop song that's played at 130 bpm.

15 No Enemiesz - Kiesza No Enemiesz - Kiesza Cover Art
16 Fergalicious - Fergie Fergalicious - Fergie Cover Art

One of Fergie's popular hits, which sampled Give It All You Got by the Afro Ricans & Supersonic by J.J. Fad. It played at 129 bpm just like those songs did.

17 Feels So Close - Calvin Harris

Another hit by Calvin Harris, with a typical tempo of his of 128 bpm.

A splendid song that became Kylie Minogue's greatest hit ever & has the most recognizable tunes & beats in her entire discography.
