What's your favourite motivational song?

Please pass this post along! I am trying to build a library of truly motivational/inspirational songs of all genres.

My list is still pretty short, but currently includes (links go to's lyric pages):
Added by commenters (Thanks! Keep 'em coming!):
  • Journey, "Don't Stop Believing"
  • Bomb the Music Industry!, "Syke! Life is Awesome" (link to free download)
  • Queen, "Don't Stop Me Now" (and Jennifer scored major points by referencing the scene in Shaun of the Dead where they beat up zombies!)
  • Saul Williams, "List of Demands" (link to his site where songs can be played - neat sound!)
  • 2Pac, "Changes" ("We gotta start makin' changes, learn to see me as a brother instead of 2 distant strangers"
  • A video of people around the world performing "Stand By Me". Gorgeous.
Scott Porch also gave me a collection of "songs that make me happy". I'll check them out too:
  • “You Found Me” : The Fray
  • “Show Me What I’m Looking For” : Carolina Liar
  • “Monday” : Wilco
  • “Tiny Dancer” : Elton John
  • “I’m Like a Bird” : Nelly Furtado
  • “Landed” : Ben Folds
And finally, CoachJ said, "I know it’s super corny, but “Grace Kelly” by MIKA always perks me up. It’s especially awesome to sing if you’re a eunuch. :)" Well, all right then. :)

More songs, anyone?
