Top 5 Motivational Songs: My Top 5 Fave Motivational Music Picks

Ciao lovelies! Need a motivational boost? If you’re feeling like me today, you might need some motivation for sure. I personally find music to be one of the most motivational things to kick myself into gear. Today I want to share with you my top 5 picks for motivational music that’ll help kickstart your day!


#1- Born For This – The Score

This song is my #1 go-to motivation boost song. Whenever I’m doubting myself or feeling unmotivated to reach my goals, I play this song and I feel like a warrior ready to take on the world.

My Favorite Lyric? “I never gave into my fears deep within cause I heard my voice inside.” This lyric speaks to me as I have pretty bad anxiety and lots of “fears deep within.” I hope that one day I can overcome them (and I have been overcoming them a little now!) because of my internal drive.

#2- Undefeated – Skillet

This song is super high on this list because 1. I just love Skillet, and 2. I do think this song is intensively motivational. I could see this being good for a workout routine.

My Favorite Lyric? “I could make it alone, I got all that I need to survive.” This lyric reminds me that even when I feel weak, I can do this, that I can make it. It makes me feel powerful to listen to this song and like I mentioned earlier, if I worked out at all I would make this part of my work-out playlist for sure.

#3- High Hopes- Panic! At The Disco

This song is one of my all-time favorites. It has so much motivational spirit in it, and it’s so inspiring. I just love this song so much.

My Favorite Lyric? “Didn't have a dime but I always had a vision. Always had high, high hopes.” This is my favorite lyric because it makes me feel super hopeful about my goals and aspirations. When you start something that you hope to make into your job one day, sometimes you feel lost and like all you have is your vision. For me this rings true. All I have, at the end of the day, to show for all my hard work is just that- a vision, a dream, my hopes. Yet I don’t want to quit. I don’t want to give up- because I have those high hopes. That one day I’ll be where I dreamed of.

#4- Thunder – Imagine Dragons

This song makes me feel super motivated every time I listen to it. I always want to go out and pursue my dreams and goals after listening to this song- sometimes on repeat. For some reason it really just resonates with me.

My Favorite Lyric? “Not a yes sir, not a follower…I was Lightning, before the Thunder.” This lyric makes me really think. It makes me think about how valuable it is to be a leader, not a follower. Leaders get to make the ideas while everyone else seems to just go with the trends. To me, I’d most certainly rather make the trends. (One day, maybe!)

#5- Centuries - Fall Out Boy

This particular song I knew had to go on this playlist. I used to daydream to it constantly in high school, and while my dreams have adjusted (not entirely changed), I still love to listen to this song to motivate me. While I don’t resonate with the entire song, some lyrics do stick with me.

My Favorite Lyric? “I am the opposite of amnesia..” This lyric sticks with me for many reasons but the main one is that I don’t want to be “forgettable.” I’ve always wanted the things I create to last, maybe even for “centuries.”
