How to Get Your Song Featured

If you’re a song writer and have songs that would be appropriate for this page and would like to be considered for the featured section, let me know. I’m looking for songs that have a positive message with a nice melody or beat. How long it will stay featured will depend on the amount of submissions I get.

Not all feature songs are artist submitted. If I happen to come across a song I like, I’ll feature it. These will typically be songs that are by less known artists. This is my way of supporting these folks. If I don’t feature your song, please don’t take it personally. You could always add it to the comments section down below.

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.

    1. oh myyyyy. There is a song that I really want to know. 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 is.it's played say, after someone wins something, a world cup final, or a big programme on tv, when soebody has won. LOL, I really cannot exaplin, anyway it's an amazing song, anybody got any suggestions?

  1. Great list, I've got my finals this week and will definitely have these songs on my mp3 player for the train journey in.

    Thanks!!

  2. I found your site from one of your youtube videos. I am glad I found it because this is a GREAT list and it has saved me hours of trying to find some great song. Excellent work !!

  3. What a wonderful collection. Thanks for taking the time to put it together. I've bookmarked it.

    Peace,
    Bob

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. Here're a few that bring me up from the pits:

    Everybody's free to wear sunscreen- Baz Luhrman
    Soak up the sun- Cheryl Crowe
    Star- Bryan Adams
    Tubthumping-chumbawamba

  7. This music and video really touches the soul and heart together, caressing it like a soft touch. Beautifullly done, keep it coming.

  8. My favorites: Barbra Streisand CD- Higher Ground– all the songs are great. Also, Connie Talbot – all of hers are great, too.

  9. The Final Countdown – Europe
    Livin' on a Prayer – Bon Jovi
    Apart from those, you got a great collection! Keep up the good work

    Oh, and Keep the Faith – Bon Jovi
    That song got me through lots of exams…

  10. This is a travesty, how come no one has ever suggested VULTURES by John Mayer? Its a great song with motivating lyrics during times you want to give up

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. The taste of Ink – The Used… Great motivational rock song, great, catchy lyrics and good beat

    “So here I am it's in my hands
    And I'll savor every moment of this
    So here I am alive at last
    And I'll savor every moment of this”

  14. HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOT by Pat Benatar is another good one. It always makes me feel cheery. Classic 80s.

  15. Bow Wow – You Can Get It All (ft. Johnta Austin)(2009)
    Sean Kingston – Push It (remix)
    Busta_Rhymes Ft. Akon & T.I. – Number One
    Johnta Austin – This Love

  16. I've gotta give it to you. Some of your quotes and reasons to why you added a song are pretty darn powerful. You really know how to get your point across through words and it's really inspiring just as the songs are.

    1. Don't know how I missed this comment. I was wondering when someone was going to comment on those paragraphs I write under most of the songs. Good to know someone is reading those.

    2. AGREED! He really is just as inspirational as the songs! good quotes are just as useful as a pick me up as any song!

  17. i've just found out this site and about to listen to ur lists. perhaps my two suggestions can be added ” SWEET VICTORY, IF YOU BELIEVE rachel lampa

  50. I think the song and vidio I created is quite motivational.Please check it out I hope you feel the same way .Love to hear your feed back REEKA SHADE WE WILL SURVIVE.

  51. 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

    “The Best of You” – Foo Fighters

  69. I'm a paralympic athlete and I was looking for good songs to get me pumped up going into London and to train with. Goggled and this site came up and it's the best one I have seen to get motivational music. Keep it up. God bless

  70. Some other workout songs I like to get pumped up to; sorry if someone already said these:
    - Unholy Confessions by Avenged Sevenfold
    - New Divide by Linkin Park
    - Seek and Destroy by Metallica
    - Fury of the Storm by Dragonforce
    - Sweet Victory by David Glen Eisley (the song featured in Spongebob)
    - numerous others that I will list later

  71. Sweet Victory by David Glen Eisley (the song featured in the Spongebob episode Band Geeks) is one of the most motivating songs ever. It's so underrated though, the full version is not even on iTunes.

    I also think you should add I WIll Not Bow by Breaking Benjamin.

  72. Went through the whole list and I swear I cant believe my eyes…!!

    Scatman – John scatman ( One of happiest energizing songs there ever were and will be)

    Also find these songs to give me a HYPE in life..
    Pendulum – The tempest
    Six- Ratatat
    We Taking Over- Khaled feat. Akon
    Promiscious Gir l- Nelly Furtado Ft. Timbaland
    Make Way- Birdman (feat. Fat Joe & Lil' Wayne)
    Lunchbox- Marilyn Manson
    OMG!!! Just remembered “This is the new shit- Marilyn Manson (talk about workout music)
    si triste- 3eme oeil
    Keny Arkana – La rage
    le missile est lance-Keny Arkana
    tout le monde debout- Keny Arkana
    style libre- Keny Arkana
    Summer Hit 2010- DJ Next http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJwGjHqGLmU

  73. I'm trying to divulge this song that was the theme of 1984 Olympic Games. I dont see it in any lists or any people commenting about it. It's Sergio Mendes – Olympia. It's in Youtube if anyone is interested.

  74. I think you could add the following songs also to the list.

    1 Hold On – Wilson Philllips
    2 Don't Stop Believin' – Journey / Glee Cast
    3 Anyway – Lauren Alaina
    4 Stronger – Jennifer Love Hewitt
    5 Don't Worry Baby – Beach Boys

  75. some other great ones with a bit of an angry, hard tone are: Kick in the teeth – papa roach, re-education (through labor) – rise against, and Ladies and gentlemen – saliva

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

  76. Excellent list. thanks so much for linking most of the songs with videos with lyrics! The songs made me feel a whole lot better!

    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!”

  77. You created a spark of genius with this idea. I listen to your featured song or selection every morning to start my day! Thanks!

    bicycle race, queen

  80. 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.

  81. The Second Coming by Juelz Sanatana and Just Blaze. Not on itunes, but on youtube. Absolutely bsest work out/pump up song.

  93. Never Alone ~Barlow Girl – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZX1S5VLYNv8 It can mean a few things. It could mean that god is with you even if you can’t feel him, or your loved one commited suicide/died but you know you’re not alone, or whatever you’re going through where you feel alone. *A must listen song*

    (This next one is the most inspirational song I’ve ever heard) You’re gonna make it ~KJ-52 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QpdWDSX8tlY 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 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=guaG981MLoQ 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. It could also mean different meanings. It’s basectly about a broken girl who doesn’t know what true love is but God loves her so much he doesn’t want her to stay the broken girl. *A must listen*

  94. “Dont give up” by peter gabriel and kate bush.
    This song has a massive impact if you are feeling low. Gorgeous!

  95. 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.

  96. 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. 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!
