Playlisting: Songs that Motivate

I don’t know how it happened so quickly but we’ve already reached the end of July. Before you know it, August will be here and in less than a month from that, many of us will be returning to school. I have a lot of new developments in the works and I’m a bit terrified of seeing what comes next. The best way to mitigate the fear? Staying on top of everything I’ve got to do and knowing that I’ve done the absolute best that I can. 

Like Jessica said, you need more than music to make you disciplined enough to work hard, but it definitely helps! I really love how music can affect our moods and stir such intense feelings within us – I like listening to songs with motivational lyrics or epic sounding arrangements to get me through tasks that I’m struggling with. I’ve listed a few below, don’t be shy and subscribe to our playlist here!

Playlisting: Songs that Motivate

1.      Beyonce: I was Here

I want to say I lived each day, until I died
And know that I meant something in somebody’s life
The hearts I have touched will be the proof that I leave
That I made a difference and this world will see

2.      Carole King: Beautiful

You’ve got to get up every morning with a smile on your face
And show the world all the love in your heart
Then people gonna treat you better
You’re gonna find, yes you will
That you’re beautiful as you feel

3.      Imagine Dragons: Radioactive

I’m waking up; I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, whoa, I’m radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, whoa, I’m radioactive, radioactive

4.      Journey (and what the hey, Glee!): Don’t Stop Believin’

Workin’ hard to get my fill
Everybody wants a thrill
Payin’ anything to roll the dice
Just one more time

5.      Empire of the Sun: Walking on a Dream

We are always running for the thrill of it thrill of it
Always pushing up the hill searching for the thrill of it
On and on and on we are calling out and out again
Never looking down I’m just in awe of what’s in front of me

Let’s go!
Make no excuses now
I’m talking here and now
I’m talking here and now

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo

The path to heaven runs through miles of clouded hell
Right to the top
Don’t look back

9.      Christina Aguilera: Fighter

Makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

10.  Switchfoot: Dare You to Move

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened before

11.  Wynter Gordon: Levitate

Fear in the air and I’m anxious and scared
But I’m rising
I think I’m gonna fall down
Moment to wait ‘til I’m happy and safe
So I’m reaching, I think I need to come down
Burning down air in the way of it all
It’s finding, I keep trying
This is flying, oh


12.  Katy Perry: Firework

You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July

‘Cause baby, you’re a firework
Come on, show ‘em what you’re worth
Make ‘em go, oh, oh, oh
As you shoot across the sky

13.  Kanye West: Stronger


14.  Jason Aldean: Amarillo Sky

He just takes the tractor another round,
An’ pulls the plow across the ground,
And sends up another prayer

15.  The Killers: All these Things that I’ve Done

If you can hold on, hold on
I want to stand up, I want to let go
You know, you know – no you don’t, you don’t
I want to shine on in the hearts of men

16.  Childish Gambino: The Last

But I swear to God, Tina Fey gave me confidence
Taught me everything that is good comes from honesty
Everybody’s got a voice, you just gotta follow it
