The Best Underappreciated Productivity Music

No matter how disciplined you are, there will always be moments when endeavors seem too hard to keep making forward progress on. In these moments, getting the right external fuel can be the sole difference between success and failure.

My external fuel of choice is music. Unlike fuels like caffeine, sugar or other chemical uppers, music is cheap, travel-proof and doesn’t have any side effects. Need a dose? Sure you could go with the classics (Eye of the Tiger, U2, Eminem) but why not try something new?

The eight songs in the YouTube playlist above are what I consider to be the top 8 uncelebrated songs for inspiring action. I have used each of them many times to keep me going when I have felt tired, exhasused or otherwise unmotivated.

Do you know of a song that should be on this list? If so, leave a comment below, I’d love to add it.

P.S. This post was inspired by Jon at Goalvanise. You can check out his original list here.

    Amon Amarth – In Pursuit of Vikings. Of course it’s really mostly because it inspires my 1/2 viking heritage to mayhem and exhultation. :)
