Inspiring and motivating songs


I have a couple of songs I listen to when I need to kick up my motivation and determination for the school day. I like Eye of the Tiger to get me going. Please suggest some songs I can add to my list. Suggest songs that inspire you to keep going. They can be old, new, any genre. Thanks

Josh Grobin, You lift me up

I watched the movie Rudy several times while in school. I also read Patricia Cornwell novels about the medical examiner Kay Scarpetta. She always inspires me even though she is a fictional character. And Sue Grafton books with female detective Kinsey Milhone.

My favorite for getting pumped for school/tests recently has been Kanye West-"Stronger"...gets me pumped and reminds me that "that that don't kill me...can only make me stronger"...:bugeyes:. Also "Live ya Life"-TI and's funny...I'm not a HUGE fan of hip hop music but those two songs really get me pumped up for class!!!
