The Top Ten

Eye of the Tiger - Survivor
One of the best song I ever heard, really fantastic, running and parkour song. It must be in top of the list. I always listen this great song whenever I walk, run, gym and even breakfast time.
Always feel like Rocky Balboa when listening!
This song was in one of the rocky movies

4Gonna Fly Now (Theme from Rocky) - Bill Conti
Truly gigantic song and great motivator. It gives great energy boost and makes one pump harder.
If you don't think this deserves at least #2 of 3, go watch Rocky and listen for this song, and then say it doesn't motivate you.
Come on people, it's Rocky!

It deserves the number one place. Its the best song for running and workout! When the pitch becomes higher and when the voice rises you will get energy boost! It really works for hardcore running with full energy. I always hear it three to five times in my warm up running session, my blood starts boiling!
