I love that there are a lot of suggestions here. I've seen several that are also on my playlist and some I may check out I haven't heard before. I like fighter songs because they motivate me. Another of my favorites right now is Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger". Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive has been a favorite song of mine for many years going back to my divorce in 1989 and through other things in between so it's great for my running also. I also like a lot of Nickelback songs.

I Gotta Feeling - Black Eyed Peas
Just Dance - Lady GaGa
Zero - Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Nirvana - Breed
Hadouken - Mecha Love
Deadmau5 - Right this Second
Pitbull - Crazy
Kesha - Blow
A Perfect Circle - Counting Bodies Like Sheep to the Rhythm of a War Drum
The Ettes - Crown of Age
Tilly and the Wall - Pot Kettle Black
The Cranberries - Salvation
Scars on Broadway - They Say
The Ettes - You Cant Do That To Me

Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.
If you have to tell someone how bad you want it, then you haven't shown them how hard you already work for it.
Whether you get what you want isn't what defines you. It's how you go about your business.

Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion. You must first set yourself on fire!
