7 Songs To Get You Motivated

Pump up the jam and get it together kid!

Being productive doesn’t come naturally: Since the beginnings of time, humans have attempted to orchestrate this mindset by practicing rituals and consuming motivation-boosting potions.

And, even though I made all that up, I bet your keen to know which tunes will shake off your procrastination forever.

1. King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard – Gamma Knife

Adrenaline rush in a song. Just had an arvo nap before nightshift? Gizz says WAKE UP JEFF!

2. Destiny’s Child – Lose My Breath

Can you keep up? No, because you haven’t worked out in five weeks.

But you’re here now and that membership is finally paying off.

Plug in Queen B to help you focus on your sweat-mission, guaranteed to make you feel sexy despite the profuse stench coming from your underarm glands.

3. Britney Spears – Work Bitch

Remember when Brit’s reputation was shaved off and dumped in a garbage can? Did she hit a car with a brolly or did she hit a car with a brolly and THEN get her shit together?!

Time to work like Brit, Bitch!

4.  Lou Bega – Mambo No.5 (a little bit of…)

That feeling when you say every name in the song correctly! Huge.

5. Queen – I Want It All

Freddie wanted it all and he got it all through some dinky-di hard work and persistence.

He didn’t take any performance enhancing or mind-altering drugs, no sir.

What a great.

6. Hall and Oates – You Make My Dreams

Want to move with the same pro-activeness as a protagonist fulfilling a montage sequence? Yeah ya do. Maybe even throw in a dance break. Here’s a dash of makeover. Confetti for the grand finale, you betcha!

7. Shakira – Waka Waka

It was one of the greatest Fifa world cup anthems since ever.

Nothing will hold you back from chasing the world after a sing along to this banger.

You know the lyrics, no shame. It’s not cultural appropriation if Shakira sings it, she’s Columbian, pretty much African right? Whatever, her hips don’t lie so…
