Top 10 120-130 BPM SongsHere’s a list of songs that range from the standard 120 bpm (beats per minute or 30 measures/bars/notes per minute) to an impressive 130 bpm (32.5 measures/bars/notes per minute) 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. This list involves songs in the allegro & molto allegro ranges.
This is an extremely catchy song that was released in 2010 & played at an impressive tempo of 130 bpm (32.5 measures/bars/notes per minute). Yet it interpolated Clocks by Coldplay which came out more than 7 years earlier (in 2002 - though that’s 131 bpm/32.75 measures/bars/notes per minute), 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.
To keep this list clean, the title of this song is sexy chick instead of the B word, but just like the original song, it’s played at 130 bpm (32.5 measures/bars/notes per minute) with catchy tunes & a dance rhythm. It’s enough to satisfy anyone craving dance music in general.
Released in 2011, Play Hard is played at 130 bpm (32.5 measures/bars/notes per minute) though it sampled Better Off Alone by Alice Deejay (DJ) which played at 137 bpm (or 34.25 measures/bars/notes per minute, which this list isn’t about) & still decided to turn it into another catchy song.
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 (32.5 measures/bars/notes per minute) & 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.
This song should be off since it's actually 130.1 bpm (32.525 measures/bars/notes per minute), it's a party rocker & a banger that gets one moving (yet working out like they said).
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 (which played at 143 bpm/35.75 measures/bars/notes per minute in the original version & 140 bpm/35 measures/bars/notes per minute in the special edition) as well as Shut Up & Drive by Rihanna (which played at 133 bpm/33.25 measures/bars/notes per minute) & 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 (32.5 measures/bars/notes per minute) & has decent tunes put it up here.
An oldie but good & well-paced, at 129.4 bpm (32.35 measures/bars/notes per minute) 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.
127 bpm (31.75 measures/bars/notes per minute) & one of the good songs that came out lately. It talked about Pompeii in the ancient times & back then Mt. Vesuvius erupted, causing Pompeii’s worst disaster of any kind.
An iconic song that became a meme even before the 2010's ever existed. It played at 129.3 bpm (32.325 measures/bars/notes per minute though the Kids Bop version played at 130 bpm/32.5 measures/bars/notes per minute).
Played at 128 bpm (32 measures/bars/notes per minute) & became their signature hit. R.I.P. to the leader Pete Burns.
A quality Indie-pop song from BENEE featuring Gus Dapperton with catchy tunes & a tempo ranging at 129 bpm (32.25 measures/bars/notes per minute) with a dance beat.
Played at 127 bpm (31.75 measures/bars/notes per minute), 1 of Pat Benatar's more upbeat songs.
The song (which apparently interpolated the lyrics from Another One Bites the Dust by Queen) was played at 130 bpm (32.5 measures/bars per minute) though it sounds only half as fast in snare beats.
A classic from Flo Rida. It played at 127 bpm (31.75 measures/bars/notes per minute) & 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.
Played at 120 bpm (30 measures/bars/notes per minute).
Now that shouldn't be on here though you're probably talking about the remix by Cedric Gervais which played at 126 bpm (31.5 measures/bars/notes per minute). Yet it’s super catchy & good for dancing as well. The original version however played at 112 bpm (28 measures/bars/notes per minute) which’s too slow-paced to be on here.
The ultimate hit by deadmau5 which played at 128 bpm (32 measures/bars/notes per minute) & became his record yet has magical value as well.
It was played at 128 bpm (32 measures/bars/notes per minute) & became her top biggest hit to this day. The background sampled the 2nd edit of Brazil by Deadmau5, so no wonder it's the same pace. Too bad she left due to criticism of her latest single. Never forget the talented artists (former or not) including her. Long live.
This song has great vocals too
It was played at 125 bpm (31.25 measures/bars/notes per minute) & payed homage to 90's house music. It was eventually sampled in songs that were slower-paced. Swish Swish by Katy Perry (ft. Nicki Minaj), Girls Like by Tinie Tempah & Zara Larsson & Sour Candy by Lady Gaga & Blackpink were played at 120 bpm (30 measures/bars/notes per minute), Truffle Butter by Nicki Minaj (ft. Drake & Lil Wayne) was played at 105 bpm (26.25 measures/bars/notes per minute).
One of Fergie's popular hits, which directly sampled Give It All You Got by the Afro Ricans & interpolated Supersonic by J.J. Fad. It played at 129 bpm (32.25 measures/bars/notes per minute) just like Give It All You Got did (though Supersonic played at 132 bpm/33 measures/bars/notes per minute).
Another hit by Calvin Harris, with a typical tempo of his at 128 bpm (32 measures/bars/notes per minute).
