Success songs are those songs that really lift your spirit and motivate you to take action. Maybe it's the awesome lyrics. Maybe it's the incredible beat. Maybe it's the amazing voice of the person singing or maybe it's all three but one thing is clear, success songs inspire you to put down the remote jump off the coach and start living your dreams. I went through the pain staking process of cherry picking the very best of the best songs to help catapult you to success but what matters most is what you think. Remember this site is built by the people for the people so go ahead and leave some feedback. Let me know what you think and if you have any great ideas for songs about success let me know.
It's an amazing thing about a success song. It can lift your spirits and push you beyond what you thought was possible. How does this happen. So why do we love music this much? A recent study suggests hearing music releases dopamine, the exact brain chemical linked to sex, food and drugs. The findings suggest why songs, although they don't have a survival benefit, are so cherished by people. This research even demonstrates that just the anticipation of music produces a burst of dopamine. This research was conducted by the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital -- The Neuro at McGill University and published in the journal Nature Neuroscience.
The researchers measured the release of dopamine based on songs that provoked the "chill effect" changes in heart rate, skin electrodermal response aka conductance response and older term "galvanic skin response, is a phenomenon where the skin temporally conducts electricity better based on internal or external stimulation which is physiologically arousing. This activation is considered one of the two aspects of emotional response. Quantifying emotion therefore is different than quantifying arousal which is an important factor for it. A strong link has been discovered between arousal, memory and attention. The same effect you can get from success songs!
Katy Perry Firework
Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind, wanting to start again? Wow! If this isn't a great metaphor for feeling like your is just drifting with no meaning and no purpose then I don't know what is. Can your life be more meaningless then drifting through the wind like a plastic bag. Wanting to start over again? But Katy offers us real hope by singing 'Cause baby you're a firework
Come on, show 'em what you're worth
Make 'em go, oh, oh, oh
As you shoot across the sky! Amazing in just a few seconds she makes you feel like a meaningless drifting bag that wants to start over a gain to feeling like a firework shooting across the sky! I think if she didn't reduce you to a drifting plastic bag first you probably won't feel as much like a firework shooting across the sky once she lifts you up! Kudos, Great success song Katy!
Oh, she got her head in the clouds
And she's not backing down
This girl is on fire
This girl is on fire
She's walking on fire
This girl is on fire
I love the lyrics of this song. Head in the clouds and not backing down! Brilliant! Love it! Love it! You go girl! More people should have this grit. This tenacity to see their dreams through what ever it takes. Not only is Alicia Keyes not backing down but she's on fire and walking on fire! Not only do I love the lyrics but I get the chill effect every time I hear this song. It really jolts me to life and makes all of my dreams and goals that seemed soo BIG seem so much smaller and in reach. So what happened did my dreams suddenly shrink? Do I actually have puny goals. No! This success song just reawakens my passion to realize what is really possible when you take action moving toward your dreams with emotional intensity. This is the same emotional intensity to can awaken for your own dreams right now. Go Ahead and do it now! Your real authentic life full of passion is waiting! The only thing missing is you!
I don't know it this next success song really fits the typical Success songs category but it elicits such emotional response
with the chill effect for me that I had to include it. Every time I hear Adele sing she sends a ripple of chills through my body! It's Adele - Set Fire to the Rain. When Adele was interviewed she said the meaning in the song Set Fire to the Rain was " burning the pain and getting rid of it and demolishing it" so it's a liberating song to get rid of pain!
This success song Loose Yourself by Eminem starts out where he mentions his pitiful existence and builds to a fevering pitch where you literally feel like he becomes a runaway freight train that will run over and demolish anything in it's path with Eminem's single minded determination. No other song has ever made me feel like a speeding runaway freight train was going to demolish me if I didn't get out of the way like this song does. You can either get out of the way or choose to harness the power of the song with Eminem's powerful rage to rip through your life's obstacles turning them into mere dust. The choice is yours!
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo
