February's top picks play more like summer workout mix than a winter one -- thanks to a wealth of pop and dance favorites.
Back in 2014, Dunham's memoir, Not That Kind of Girl, included a list of things that keep her up at night. Meanwhile, a realistic, yet not overly dramatized depiction of OCD gets a good amount of screen time on Girls in the form of Dunham's character. But is there such a thing as too revealing?
Pop singer Demi Lovato endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton Thursday night at the University of Iowa. Lovato was pretty 'Confident' in Clinton, "I truly believe there is nobody more qualified to run this country," Lovato said. But, not everyone in the U of I crowd was as 'Confident.' "All we got was I think a five minute kind of celebratory speech and that was it," said Eric Dirth, 24, an U of I law student. He was just one of many who were left with a bad taste after the night.
What a weird, often sad, poignant year 2015 has been in pop culture. It was the year of Bill Cosby's demise, Taylor Swift's continual rise, the emergence of Caitlyn Jenner, and the unstoppable power of the force.
Justin Bieber's latest single, "Sorry," a moombahton-pop delight, opens with the line, "You have to go and get angry at all of my honesty." It's an odd choice for an apology song, Bieber prefacing his mea culpa by blaming the object of his touted remorse.
Autumn is an excellent time to find new workout music.
As summer gives way to fall, let the played out songs in your gym mix give way to some current alternatives.

Demi, as you said so eloquently in your Instagram, there is nothing wrong with the female body, even naked.
What does it mean to be "aware" of mental health though? Of what should we be aware?
I'm pleased to consistently see Alzheimer's appearing on various television shows, hear segments about it on the radio and am happy it's becoming a mainstream topic. I'm beyond proud that Remember Me came into the world at this time of realization.
Demi's message of being a warrior is what motivated me. She showed me, even at your lowest, you need to fight to get what you want, because you are worth it and not just your disability.
In terms of working out, 128 BPM's dominance in pop music means that if you can find an exercise routine that approximates this pace, you'll never be short of new workout music. If you've already got fixed a routine, you can swap in any of the songs from that range and see how they fit.
Jason Derulo has had a landmark year, releasing his highest-charting album and giving the world a slew of massive singles, each more catchy than the last.
Environmental factors such as stress, sleep disruption, and drug or alcohol use may also trigger manic-depressive episodes, so maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important -- proper nutrition and sleep, handling stress, finding a support network and psychotherapy can all help manage bipolar disorder.
