Motivational Music

What songs do you listen to in order to motivate yourself? For those of you who listen to hip hop/rap, my favorite motivational song is Go Getta by Lil Wayne. I feel this song can directly be applied toward anyone going to selection and on the path toward being an operator.

I would suggest that it is not the song that motivates the individual,

But the individuals motivation that creates the song..

Those that succeed at any level are self motivated.

Now what kick ass music did I enjoy when I was young & pumped??

Me too JJ.

Also, anytime I hear Stranglehold by Ted Nugent, I want to kill something...

My sister runs marathons and she usually supports some cause or another in the process.
She offers to add "your song" to her motivation ipod for a donation. I have to pay double to get this one on it. It's one of the last on her play list. It's a "good race, D, if I don't get too it"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5puA...8HbP54didjDDek
She doesn't charge me at all for the 'Ballad" but refuses "Roland" no matter what I offer.

Warren, I miss you.

Pure greatness. I especially enjoyed the first one, what a great voice that soldier has! I just love it. Melody, rhythm, pitch, harmony, crescendo, descendo...someone who can actually carry a tune (like Croce as well)- thats the kind of music that just pumps me up. Thanks for sharing these choices, JJ.

I listen to a lot of Three Days Grace and Five Finger Death Punch. The power and speed of their auditory assaults pumps me up to no end.
