70 motivational songs of all genres to feel good, get motivated or workout

The power of music is incredible strong and many people underrate this driving force. Music that touches you can give you so much positive energy.
Not only that, it motivates you, gives you power and strength.

Music is an ingenious tool to put you in a good state and to make you feel more confident.

I – being a music nerd – dug through my collection of records and music archives and threw together 70 awesome songs from all kinds of genres. A few commercial songs that you probably already know can be found in the collection, of course. But there are also some real treasures that you haven’t heard yet and will motivate you hugely.

I’ve found that great music in all genres – you just have to search long enough and be a bit open-minded. In order to make it easier on you, I’ve sorted the songs according to style so you can start by listening to your favorite genre.

Long story short

Here’s my list of 70 motivational songs

in the genres Disco, Pop, Funk, Soul, Rock, Hip Hop, Rap, Trip Hop, Cosmic, Electronica, Breakbeats, House and D&B.

The tracks, hymns and songs that especially motivate me and inspire me and put me in a happy mood.

Hopefully they’ll do the same for you, too!

Of course there are a lot more songs that can pump you up. However, I tried to include more underground tracks and somewhat lesser-known songs in this selection.
