10. Don’t stop believin’ – Journey
The best type of motivational song is the one that you can belt out because you know all the lyrics. This anthem by Journey ticks all these boxes.
9. Shake it off – Taylor Swift
Have a little talk with Ms Swift when the world presses down on you. Haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.
8. Beautiful Day – U2
There’s nothing like a few Irish comrades reminding you to live in the moment.
7. We will rock you – Queen
You probably heard this song for the first time in some locker room as a teenager, and a decade later, it hasn’t lost any of its power.
6. Not afraid – Eminem
Take it from the master of recovery and reinvention: never let fear stand in the way of doing what you really want to do.
5. Tubthumping – Chumbawumba
Right, so while this might be a drinking song, the truth in the chorus is not lost: “I get knocked down, but I get up again, you’re never gonna keep me down”.
4. It’s my life – Bon Jovi
Another dedication to the present moment. Indeed, Jon, it’s now or never.
3. Eye of the tiger – Survivor
The first few riffs of this song have the power to turn any demotivated couch potato into Rocky Balboa.
2. Titanium – David Guetta ft. Sia
There’s no use in waiting any longer; fire away. Nothing can keep you down, so belt it out: “You shoot me down, but I won’t fall, I am titanium”.
1. Feelin’ good – Nina Simone
The celebrated Nina Simone said it best: It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life. And you’re feeling good.
