It dominated the dancefloor throughout the year, so it was only natural Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk is the biggest song of 2015.

The track, which features Bruno Mars, notched up a combined sales and streaming total of 1.76 million to finish at the top of the 2015 chart. The song’s total combined sales since its release in November 2014 stood at 2.25 million at year-end.

Uptown Funk proved unstoppable throughout the year. As well as spending a total of seven weeks at Number 1, the track logged 39 weeks in the Top 40 before finally exiting in October. View Uptown Funk and the rest of Mark Ronson’s chart history here.

Ronson fended off competition from several hugely successful tracks to top the year-end chart, which included 17 Number 1s in the total Top 40.

Finishing at Number 2 was OMI’s Cheerleader (Felix Jaehn Remix). The summer smash first entered the Official Singles Chart at Number 96 in January 2015 and steadily scaled the tally for 14 weeks until its April impact date, eventually reaching the summit in May and staying for four consecutive weeks. Cheerleader finished 2015 with a total of 1.52 million across downloads and streaming equivalent sales.

Taking third place was Hozier’s Take Me To Church with 1.25 million combined sales. The stirring soul-blues track racked up huge sales over the year despite never reaching Number 1, peaking at 2 for four consecutive weeks after a 20-week climb inside the Top 40.

At Number 4 Ellie Goulding’s Love Me Like You Do, from smash hit movie 50 Shades Of Grey, which topped the chart for four weeks – holding Hozier off the top spot for three of them – back in February. By the end of 2015, the song notched up 1.19 million combined sales.

Rounding off the end of year Top 5 was Wiz Khalifa’s See You Again. The Fast & Furious 7 tribute to actor Paul Walker, which topped the Official Singles Chart for two weeks in April, finished close behind Goulding on 1.17 million sales and streams. It was also the first of two entries for the song’s guest star and co-writer Charlie Puth, who placed at 34 with his Meghan Trainor collaboration Marvin Gaye.

It’s no joke that music can make exercise way more fun—if you ever forgot to bring your headphones to the gym, you likely learned this the hard way. But more than just upping the enjoyment factor, good music can help you get more out of your workout too: Studies have shown that listening to upbeat tunes helps you pick up the pace and makes challenging intervals feel easier, so you can work even harder. We asked top trainers around the country to share their current favorite jams to help you power through any workout.

“7/11” by Beyoncé

“This song embodies how we feel on the turf in our class: strong and empowered. The fast tempo also sets the pace for hard intervals like sprints and bear crawls.”

—Alonzo Wilson, founder of Tone House in New York City

“Hold Me Down” by Halsey

“I love this song. It’s empowering and makes me want to fight! The beat reminds me of a boxer, so that image itself inspires me to GO HARD.”

—Cassey Ho, creator of POP Pilates at 24 Hour Fitness

“Bring It Back” by Shy Carter (feat Aleon Craft)

“This is a ridiculously fun, upbeat, catchy song that fuses together hip-hop, R&B, soul, and pop all in one. With it’s killer tempo, this track makes you want to get out of the saddle and just groove to the rhythm! I play this about three-fourths of the way through class, just when you need a boost of adrenaline to help kick it into high gear and power through to the end!”

—Jenn Sherman, head coach at Peloton in New York City

“Braveheart” by Neon Jungle

“This song has a sick drop that gets you totally in the zone. The vocals are sexy and make you feel totally fierce, too!”

—Sadie Kurzban, founder and CEO of 305 Fitness

“Reptile’s Theme” by Skrillex

“I’m a big fan of this right now. It’s got a great beat and rhythm that helps me power through that final sprint during my own runs, so I usually time the playlist so this song comes up during a sprint series on the treadmill!”

—Erica Stenz, trainer at Barry’s Bootcamp in San Francisco

“Crystallize” by Lindsey Stirling

“You’ll love this song because it’s unexpected. It would most likely fall in the classic genre as a violin carries the melody, but it’s laid on top of a steady beat that offers plenty of swells and pick-ups to push you through those last 10 seconds. There aren’t any words, but the melody is so engaging you won’t miss them a bit. Prepare to hit Repeat.”
