Love this song when I need a lift!

Building a business can be a rocky road.

There always seem to be both the ups and the downs.

You ever have a moment where you could just use some inspiration, or something to pick you up and get you energized?

I definitely have those moments when I feel the need for cheering up and something to put a smile on my face.

Here’s a song (and performance) that lifts me up when I could use a boost.
It gets me out of my chair and up dancing!

~ Bill

PS I’d love to hear from you – what songs, videos, writings, etc. lift you up during challenging times? Please share on my blog below, and let’s share our sources of inspiration with each other!

  1. As an entrepreneur, charting new territory in the realm of health, this song is one I go back to again and again (Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield).

    I also share it with some of my clients and customers as this same is true for our health journeys.

  2. Hey Bill – great choice!

  3. Bill, great video! Though I don’t watch much TV and have never seen Glee, that’s a great song and I can see how it can get you going. Pretty much anything by U2, for me, is a great motivator. Some runner-ups: Sara Bareilles – Brave, on Brave, Katy Perry – Roar; Wide Awake, on Firework; Say Hey (I Love You) – Michael Franti and Spearhead.

    • Love your choices!

      • Hello – I must say, I’m impressed with your site. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs and inroomatifn was very easy to access. I found what I wanted in no time at all. Pretty awesome. Would appreciate it if you add forums or something, it would be a perfect way for your clients to interact. Great job

  4. I think this is one to wake up and hit play on right away every morning! – Eric

  5. I love listening to this song – This recording is by Liza Minnelli, but it was originally written for a musical to be sung by a senior citizen, which gives it an added punch. The vibration of ‘Yes’ is just so juicy – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=el7pPVhrK6Y

  6. I love this post Bill! I’m a big fan of Pharrell’s Happy. You can check it out here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6Sxv-sUYtM

  7. I love this one… gets me rocking out and moving energy… then I can get back to clarity and focus. 🙂


  8. Bill, I have to say that this got me *moving*! (confession…dancing) Then listening to more Glee!

    Music can have a huge effect on your mood as well as energy level, and I understand there’s even an app (Focus@will) that plays classical music to boost your productivity.

    Here’s one I’ve always liked — “Break my Stride” by Matthew Wilder. Get ready for some retro goodness!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cy46iOwWQiE

    Thanks for sharing this, Bill!

  9. Thanks Bill for the reminder to lift MYSELF up when I get discouraged. My pick is from 1975 and I still LOVE to hear it jam!
    So glad you asked us to SHARE!
    Angel Blessings!

  10. I am always on the look-out or “hear-out” for Pressure-Free songs. As a professional violinist, I turn to many classical pieces, but for popular songs, I really listen to lyrics and messages. Here is my current favorite” “Happy” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6Sxv-sUYtM&feature=kp

  11. Two songs for me.

    Garth Brooks “The River” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wie219qytT0
    Steve Winwood “Reach for the Light” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKBjoKZzhpc
    John Denver “What One Man Can Do” http://www.youtube.com/embed/wie219qytT0

    I know that’s three not two.

  12. My fav is rated R.
    But, I LOVE Eminem – his good stuff = ), when Dr.Dre is the producer.
    Something about the beats (don’t know the music lingo for what it is), plus the complexity of the sampling that sparks me up.

  13. This is one of my inspirations; “Shine your light” from Robbie Roberson.

  14. For some reason I can’t view the video? It says “private” – anyone else having that issue?

    Anyway, really happy to share my favourite uplifter: LIFE IS AMAZING… listen to the lyrics too… “Let the clouds pass ’cause you are the sky that’s blue”

  15. This one by Carole King get me going… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJn3QJYYBr0

  16. I definitely added to my list of motivational songs thanks to all of you. Besides Happy by Pharrell, which was mentioned above, my go-to song which always makes me feel great no matter how bad I feel is “Walking on Sunshine” by Katrina and the Waves. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPUmE-tne5U

  17. Kim Williams says:

    Hi Bill! I just gotta love Natasha when I need a pick me up…….the video is such an adrenaline rush of happiness! We both love the sunshine in our songs too

    Health Coach Kim

  18. I agree, music absolutely can change your mood and lift your spirits. One of my new favorites is, Pharrells, “HAPPY. If you aren’t happy, that song will make you happy! (-:

    Because I have lived through major difficulties, including a debilitating spinal injury at the age of 28, I have looked for ways to lift my spirits when I was depressed. Music is healing! I actually offer a place for those needing encouragement called “Comfort for the Soul” as a free resource so that others who are struggling have all kinds of music to inspire them & to lift their spirits!

  19. Everything Will Change by Gavin DeGraw was released as the official song of Team USA 2014 for the Sochi Winter Olympics. I listen to it while journaling in the morning or during my run.


  20. I just love “Here Comes the Sun.” It’s an instant mood lifter. Haven’t heard it in a while, and it reminds me of when I was 14 and my family stayed at a friend’s apartment in Rennes, France. They had a stereo and a few records, and Abbey Road was one of them. My sister and I played “Here Comes the Sun” over and over and over.!

  21. Great choice Bill! Here Comes the Sun has always been my favorite Beatles song. My theme songs that have been jazzing me up lately are “This Girl is on Fire” by Alicia Keys and I’ve always jumped up and danced to “Walkin on Sunshine” by Katrina and the Waves.

  22. Jamie-ellen says:

    I love saving me nickelback always picks me up and cheers me up and prepares me to smash myself at gym 🙂 🙂

  23. My go to song/performance is “Bang Bang” from “So You Think You Can Dance” Season 11 specifically because I love love LOVE Valerie Rockey’s performance here. Well, I loved all of her performances. But this choreography really captured the feel and energy of this song.

  24. Depends on how much of a funk I am in…

    Deepest funk (About to give up) Don’t Stop Beleiving (Glee) — https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d93JhZLZWnM
    Deep funk Turn Turn Turn (Byrds) — https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4ga_M5Zdn4

    Kinda funk Good Morning Starshine (Oliver) — https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QAOTxAGJUug

    Outta da funk : Walking on Sunshine (Katrina & the Waves) — https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPUmE-tne5U

  25. i like dancing to local artists…….


  26. Because I’m a geek:
    Dark Lord Funk

  27. Cookie Keky says:

    A song that cheers me up is “We Can Do This” by Lucid Rays.

  28. Barbara says:

    Maybe it’s why we do what we do…
    “The Diving Board” by Elton John

  29. Lauren hill pretty baby just heard it this morning and I remembered your email Bill so you go brother!


  30. Hi Bill. As I am a dreamer, my go-to song is Dreams by Van Halen. The video also includes footage of the Blue Angels, and it blows my mind every time I watch it. The combination of the two is unreal, motivating and gets me back on the right path if I stray. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zsXCs41DkWs

  31. My all time favourite is Stevie Wonder ‘Superstition’


  32. This particular version of Happy by Walk Off the Earth https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbVoo7YLWnI

  33. Love all the happy inspirational songs!!!

  34. You know what, Bill?

    I’ll share your page [link] with my people on FB

  35. Let’s get this updated! How can you not get inspired to break the pattern and get to it when you hear this: Good to be Alive – Andy Grammer


  36. This song kept me company many nights while delivering the San Jose Mercury News, with my Ford Pinto and working daytime as a Flight Instructor. I needed the money for my next pilot’s licenses. Once you know deep inside what your dream is, then, “Don’t Stop Believing”!. All the best to everyone for continuous growth. http://www.cascinarosso.com

  37. Thanks for sharing.
