Music for Motivation

Hey all, After 3 weeks off work i am going to try and go back tomorrow … I have a walk from the bus to my work ( not risking driving it yet ) … and wondered what peoples thoughts were for music to keep me moving as such, plus it may help drown out my co workers no doubt bitching as i havn’t been there … :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile: Open to all suggestions … xAnnax

I have been playing sports for a long time. What I like most is running long distances. I don’t always run the distance I want to. But music often helps me. Here are some of my favorites:

  • Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You) – Kelly Clarkson

  • Don’t Stop Believing – Journey

  • Save the World – Swedish House Mafia

  • Get up Stand up – Bob Marley

  • Beautiful – Christina Aguilera

  • Tubthumping – Chumbawumba

  • You Gotta Be – Des Ree

At first I listened to songs in the soundcloud but then I realized that there are many other music streaming services from this list where there are most of the original tracks rather than remixes. So now I use apple music

Good luck with the return to work…and the music choice.


Mozart symphony no.40

Any of the Strauss polkas, or a selection of them.

Tchaikovsky: Nutcracker Suite or Swan Lake excerpts.

Smetana: The Bartered Bride.

Prokofiev: Symphony no.1 ‘The Classical’

Hallelujah- (RockMlady)

Bach full tapping guitar- ( RockMlady)

This is the Sea- ( The waterboys)



Handel’s Harp Concerto - listened to it so often can’t get it out of my head.

Mendleson (sp) Piano Concerto 1

Mozart P C 21.

Have you come across the pianist Yuja Wang - massively impressed initially but not sure why but I have gone completely off her -

  • come back Martha, all is forgiven!

The Waterboys (as Kielyn said) every single track excellent.

Deep Purple - “Hush”.

On a slightly lighter note: John Martyn, ‘Big Muff’.

Martha is a giant. I think she is without parallel on the current world

stage. Yuja Wang is fantastic but has the grow and mature. What a talent though!
