Tell us what song gets you pumped!


My theme song…


After a bad day at work…

If I loop this about 5 times I feel much better.


really any version of


So many. But, at the moment…

Mellow, cute, fun, sexy, and some great saxophone.

Still the greatest song in Rock n Roll…

I think I’m really glad I don’t work at your office, @cbwahlstrom.


Lenny Kravitz - Fly Away

Love this song when I’m driving.
edit - …and I have no idea how to make the picture appear in my post like the cool kids above me.

I like many different genres of music, so it depends on my mood and what I’m doing at the time.


There are so many @shannono

That said, Freddy Mercury is inspiring to me, but not sure he was human.

(some dead spots during instrumentals).

@cbwahlstrom lol, I was truly sad to see the pink hearse destroyed at the end of this video.

@jumphour Awesome song! I just LOVE Lenny Kravitz :heart_eyes:

@c1tobor these vocals are :fire::fire::fire:

@southpaw Live it well is beautiful :heart:

@bocephous “backhoe-riding king of beers” - amazing lyrics

Ok, I have one more classic, love this man…

“And I know if I only be true to this glorious quest, then my heart will lie peaceful and calm when I’m laid to my rest”

This song puts a smile on my face when out running:

Not at all running related and very Boston (I grew up in the area) centric.

I have thought long and hard about this. If I had three wishes they would be:

  1. end poverty
  2. world peace
  3. bring back 80s speed metal

Anything by Queen but especially “Don’t Stop Me Now”.
Also anything by Imagine Dragons with “Thunder” being my present favorite.


I’ve a list of songs that seem to energize me!

  • Duality by Slipknot is what got me through my first 5k! (We’re not gonna talk about my time though!!!)

  • Toxic by Britney Spears is one of my all time favorite songs and it will instantly flip a mood for me!! :star_struck:

  • Crawl by Childish Gambino is what my roommate from college and I jam out to

  • Honorable Mentions: Everytime We Touch ~ Cascada, Bodies ~ Drowning Pool


There are just too many songs that come to mind, but my go to would have to be…


This is played at just about every NC State football game so hearing it just immediately takes me to the hype of the start of a game.

As a bonus - my wife and I used this song as our entrance song to our wedding reception (it was even her idea!)

Second would have to be the anthem from Top Gun. All instrumental but just gets me in the zone.

@evan.price the intro to this is legit! Love the guitars, I think I’d prefer just the instrumentals to this track.

@Kennely_Esq Toxic is A + and Childish Gambino is definitely one of my go tos.
