We all need a little extra motivation from time to time. To reach out goals, we hire personal trainers, ask our teammates to push us harder, or choose personal benchmarks to strive for. Sometimes, however, only music will do the trick. Music is such a powerful toolit can make you happy, bring tears to your eyes, or push you a little harder during your workout. The type of music you need to get you motivated can change on a daily basis: One day it’s hip-hop and the next classic rock. It could be driving beats of electronic dance music, inspirational lyrics in some rap songs, or the cinematic sounds of an orchestral piece. Some songs pump you up and others make you feel like you can take on the world. A few magical works of genius can do both. Here’s a list of songs to help you on your way to conquering your day, week, month, and year.
