What songs/soundtracks do you use to really motivate yourselves, during a workout, before a big race, early in the morning on the way to work, at the gym?

My top 5:

5) Anything on the Braveheart soundtrack
4) Survivor - Eye of the Tiger
3) The Gods and Generals Soundtrack
2) O Fortuna
1) Amazing Grace - Bagpipe Version


The tower? Rapunzel!!!!!!

It's hard for me to pick a few definite songs that motivate me. Many different songs have many different meanings to me, so I usually try to listen to a song with the meaning that I am looking for. In general though, these are some of the songs that motivate me...

More Mellow:

Go The Distance -- Michael Bolton
Fire And Rain -- James Taylor
I Hope You Dance -- Lee Ann Womack
If We Hold On Together -- Diana Ross
Somewhere Out There -- James Ingram/Linda Ronstadt
Sailing -- Christopher Cross


More Fun:

Don't Stop -- Fleetwood Mac
Miami 2017 -- Billy Joel
Thriller -- Michael Jackson
Numb -- Linkin Park
Carry On Wayward Son -- Kansas
Losing My Religion -- R.E.M.

Oh gosh... I really don't know when you mean 'motivational.' The others have a funky list. I'm basing my list on your Braveheart, which I'm adding to my list.

Olympic season is almost starting. John Williams's "Summon the Heroes" and "Olympic Fanfare & Theme." Great composer.

"Hoe Down," "Appalachian Spring," and "Rodeo" by Aaron Copland. Great American Classical.

"Imitation of Life" by R.E.M., "`Ulalena" by Arra, "Hero" by E. Iglesias (lol), "Take the Money and Run" by Steve Miller Band, "Kashmir" by Led Zepplin, etc...

Gosh... Too much to mention. Well I guess. Hey! I almost wanted to major in Music.

"Proud" Heather Small / M People Can't remember which
Tina Turner - "Simply the Best" - My former employers song. Makes me feel nauseous just thinking about it.

"Walk On" U2 (surprised nobody has mentioned it yet)
"Love Song" The Cure (covered by 311)

It's indeed a Heather Small song. Good song, too.

Cheers!
