Music enhances the experience of life for it has the power to move the deepest depths of our souls.” – Kevin Ngo

There’s no better way to motivate yourself than listening to a motivational song that pumps you up, puts a smile on your face, and shoots your confidence through the roof.

Everyone has a handful of songs that when they listen to it, it just makes them want to take action. Some of these inspiring songs can have lyrics that have nothing to do with motivation, yet we are inspired to take action. This is because we consciously or unconsciously anchor certain feelings to certain songs.

I’m sure you have a list songs where when you hear it, it will bring you into a certain state whether it’s excitement, sadness, peaceful, etc. The songs above are just some songs I find motivational to me. Most of these songs have inspiring messages, some have an upbeat motivational sound to it, while others are just classic songs that conjure up images of inspiration. When you find inspirational songs that pump you up, use them to propel yourself towards the accomplishment of your goals.

Again, if there are any songs you know of that aren’t on this list, please add them in the comments section. Thanks.

It's really inspirational and motivational, can't believe it's not on any of the lists on the internet, well it might be because i don't know what it's played say, after someone wins something, a world cup final, or a big programme on tv, when soebody has won.

      1. wavin flag by k'naan is the song

  8. one moment in time-whitney houston is a good one i think

  9. That's a very impressive list, though I would suggest “Mountains” by Lonestar if you choose to update it. It has a similar message to “Climb”, but will probably connect better with certain audiences.

  10. Three more for your collection:

    Theme from Rocky (Gonna Fly Now) – Maynard Ferguson
    I'm Winning – Carlos Santana
    We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions – Queen

  20. I will survive is one of the best songs ever!

    2. Great song, really!

  23. I Won't Back Down – Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers

  25. Man in Motion (St. Elmo's Fire) – I remember this song from the 80s when I was just a child. It was used as the theme for Rick Hansen's epic and inpirational wheelchair Man in Motion Tour around the world. There are few people as heroic as Rick Hansen.

  26. Thank you very much for this wonder for collection of songs. I am a day trader. In my profession every day is different, some days are good, some days are tough. These songs lift me up every time I am down. .My favorite song is You gotta want it….. Once again thank you very much for take time and effort to put these songs together. May God bless you.

      Good one!! :D

  148. Songs that inspire/motivate me, personally:

    “Escape”- Mt Eden
    (Deep bass, beautiful choir vocals are inspiring and motivational.)

    “300 Violin Orchestra”- Jorge Quintero
    (Gets my creative brain going. Ideas start to pour out of my head.)

    “Sick Of You”- CAKE
    (Oddly enough, him complaining about everything in his life gets me inspired to get over something I'M complaining about/ stuck on.)

    “Viola Lion”- Isles and Glaciers
    (I like driving around late at night/ early in the morning with this song playing… amazing lyrics. Gets me thinking about stuff.)

    “Six Days at the Bottom of the Ocean” and “Glittering Blackness”- Explosions In the Sky
    (My favorite songs by them. Every song they make is so different and interesting. Nice background music.)

    “In Coma (Acoustic)” or “Paralytic”- Dead Poetic
    (Pretty songs that inspire me. I use them to calm me down.”

    “Die”- Eliminate
    (Yikes! The title and artist name might turn you away initially, but it's really a good song. Don't judge a song by it's title. If it helps, think up your own title for the song.)

    “Big Boss”- Doctor P
    (Half of the time, I like my music loud. Big Boss wakes me up and re-energizes me. Not for people who like quieter music, or if you're about to go to bed.)

    “Louder Than Thunder”- The Devil Wears Prada
    (A nice break from the usual TDWP. Gives me creative ideas all the time.)

    “The Wrong Light”- Kasey Anderson and The Honkies
    (Gets me motivated, wound up, and going. Crunchy, bluesy, awesome.)

    I could go ON and ON, but I'll leave my list as it is. Sorry it's so long. Happy listening! :D

  180. Thank you so so much for compiling a list of these wonderful songs (and everyone who has contributed). I was literally having one of the most horrible moments and felt like giving up and on a chance I came across this site and listened to some of the songs, and read what you've written, it made me feel better and strong enough to continue again.

    always listen to the lyrics for runs and work outs (plus the actual music gets you in a hyped mood)

  201. “children (dream version)” by Robert Miles

  204. St. Elmo's Fire by John Parr is number 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 and 10.

    1. Amen to that. It’s the first song I put on my MP3 player. These lyrics always give me the energy to keep going:

      “Play the game, you know you can’t quit until it’s won.
      Soldier on, only you can do what must be done.”

      “I can make it, I know I can,
      You broke the boy in me – but you won’t break the man!”

      “I can climb the highest mountain, cross the wildest sea,
      I can feel St. Elmo’s Fire burnin’ in me!”

  214. I am trying to find a song to share with a friend. It is very upbeat and motivating. I believe that it is called Right This Moment… and my I Pod just says unknown artist (female). I cannot find it anywhere.

    The song starts out with the words:
    Right this moment
    This very moment
    Life is happening
    Right in front of you
    Right this moment
    This very moment
    Life is changing
    And everything is new

    If you know who sings this I would truly appreciate the info.

    1. According to my research, it’s called Right This Moment from the CD, Dreams in the Making and it’s by Scott Johnson. The version I heard was from a male singer.

    (This next one is the most inspirational song I’ve ever heard) You’re gonna make it ~KJ-52 – It talks about people might try to break you but you are gonna make it and it’s gonna be okay. *A must listen song*

    (This is my favorite song) Broken Girl ~Matthew West – This song is truely amazing. It’s about a young girl who is sexually abused. She feels used and worthless and isn’t able to forget what happened. the song is trying to say that God’s love will fix you and bring you back up and that it is everlasting so no one can rip it away from you.

  256. Jason Aldean-Only Way I know.

    A highly motivational song called there i am.. The title its self explains it all. This is for those close friends and loyal people out there who are always there for each other. Add this now moderator. you wont regret it!

  258. There’s a song by a singer/songwriter 13 year old that I think you should listen to.. Search “Rising Up From the Dark Demo” on youtube and it’s about getting bullied and not letting anything get in the way of you and your dream.

  259. I was diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis, chronic inflammation of the bladder. Also causes chronic intense pain. I was looking for songs to keep me inspired and to encourage me. I found this site and fell in love with it. I have listened to several of the songs. I have to say that when I listened to “Smile” Charlie Chaplain, I cried my eyes out. Such a simple song to help you get through it.

    I would also like to suggest a song. It is called Blackbird by The Beatles. This song has been my go to song for when I’m down about my disability. “Blackbird singing in the dead of night, take these broken wings and learn to fly. All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to arise. Blackbird fly.” I’m a blackbird and my disability is a broken wing but I’m going to learn how to fly high with that broken wing. I hope this song helps someone else too!
    Thank you so much for posting this! I do believe it will help me so much through my journey through life with this disability.

    1. Thanks for sharing, Kayla. I wish you the best.

    2. Kayla my prayers go out to you! I in my injuries (not as trying as yours) have also found the song We Live – Superchicks to be uplifting in it’s own way as well as Headphones – Britt Nicole. I Pray for you to have a long happy and painless life! God Bless!

  260. After reading your wonderful list and the endless list of comments (every last one!) I have a four page list of amazing songs to add to my collection! Thank you! Also thank you to all of the people who commented! I will add a few of my own to this list.
