    "Second Wind" by Billy Joel

    "I'm Still Standing" by Elton John

    and of course

    "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor.

    " Saint Elmo's Fire" by David Foster is what I call a "power song". reminds me of Canadian Rick Hanson who wheelchaired around the world (literally, as in traveled to many countries and figuratively, as he rolled the circumference of the world) for spinal cord injuries. Great inspiration.

    My reminder the world is still an OK place? Louis Armstrong "What a Wonderful World" I went out and bought it on "9/ 11".

    For all of the above questions, I answer Tegan & Sara. My pre-exam song is "Living Room" it is a nice bubbly, energetic, sing along song. My post-exam song is "Speak Slow". They are an up and coming pair of sisters from Canada.

    Good choices, Flea! I love, love, love Tegan and Sara! In all honesty, I listen to them on the way to/from school whether it's an exam day or not!

    Speaking of, "Country Roads" inspires me for the long car trip when i visit back home. Also inspired me to kick back and relax occaisionally.

    I have a new favorite in this department..
    Kelly Clarkson's Breakaway

    [font=Trebuchet MS]"I'll spread my wings and I'll learn how to fly
    I'll do what it takes 'til I touch the sky
    And I'll make a wish, take a chance, make a change
    And breakaway
    Out of the darkness and into the Sun
    But I won't forget all the ones that I love
    I'll take a risk, take a chance, make a change
    And breakaway "

    "Breakaway" has inspired me too! That and Gwen Stefani's song, "What You Waiting For" both gave me the guts to change career directions and go back to school this semester.

    *********************************************
    Lyrics from "What You Waiting For":

    Naturally i'm worried if i do it alone
    Who really cares 'cause it's your life
    You never know, it could be great
    Take a chance 'cause you might grow
    Oh... oh ohhh

    What you waiting
    What you waiting
    What you waiting
    What you waiting
    What you waiting for!?

    What you waiting
    What you waiting
    What you waiting
    What you waiting
    What you waiting for!?

    Tick tock
    Tick tock
    Tick tock
    Tick tock

    Take a chance you stupid Ho

    Like a new cut pattern, you're repeating yourself
    You know it all by heart
    Why are you standing in one place?
    *********************************************

    I wouldn't call myself a "Ho" like Gwen does (LOL), but otherwise, the lyrics gave me the kick in the butt I needed to follow my dream! :chuckle

    I actually like Eminem's "Lose Yourself"... It begins:

    "If you had one shot... one opportunity
    To seize everything you ever wanted -- one moment
    Would you capture it? Or just let it slip..."

    It's about someone who gives it everything they have to achieve their dream. They work incredibly hard even though they face an uphill climb and their own personal fear. They know that success depends both on having the courage to grab that opportunity when it presents itself and on having the talent needed to deliver.

    Your mantra becomes: Success is my only option, failure's not.

    "You better lose yourself in... the moment
    You own it, you better never let it go
    You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
    The opportunity comes once in a lifetime..."

    The song ends up with: You Can Do Anything You Set Your Mind To..
