Quick Question....

Is there a song that motivates you when you feel like giving up? A tune that lifts your spirits? A song that makes you get up out of your chair and dance around the office like a craaaaaaazy person?

I'm doing a bit of research for a project I'm working on and would really appreciate it if you could share your top tune in the comments below, or tweet me @AnnieBeee with the hashtag #Motivation, thank you!

p.s Bruce Springsteen 'Dancing in the Dark' does it for me.

  1. Hi Annie...has to be Gloria Gaynor "I Will Survive"....but only on my own and when no one is watching......imagine most guys would choose a tune with a female vocalist and vice versa...why is that ?..

  2. LMFAO's Party Rock Anthem never fails me. I once danced around the pool on holiday to this (complete with 'running man' moves) and my bloody sister filmed it. I hope to God no one ever sees that video.

  3. Hang on Kim till I just do a quick search on YouTube for that video ....

  4. I think you should, depending on the feedback, post the full list in due course. You have my response via Twitter - interested to know what the project is now. x

    1. I certainly will Mike, I've had around 50 responses from various different networks to this blog so will update shortly. Thanks for joining in ;-)

  5. Love this! I choose 'Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now' or 'We Built This City' by Starship. Or 'Jump In My Car' by The Hoff. And I don't care what anyone thinks of that.
