Fight Songs

Songs to Fire You Up when You Need to Fight for Your FAB

Remember your old high school pep rallies and how fired up everyone would get when the band started playing the school fight song? As a former cheerleader, I can remember being down on the sidelines and feeling the electricity surge through the crowd as the band played “our” song and the adrenaline rush that would propel our athletes to push harder and dig deeper out on the field.

If music has the power to energize and excite us–doesn’t it make sense that we should add music to our FabYOUlous Life toolbox? I know that when I’m running, working out, or just needing a jolt of motivation, I have certain songs that I play depending upon the type of feeling that I am trying to obtain. Here is a list of songs that I have compiled and listen to whenever I need a little help in firing up the FAB in my life. Some songs are poppy while some are hard and angry (yes, I fully believe in the power of positivity, but sometimes you just need a hard, angry song when it’s time to knuckle up and kick some butt on your goal).

As a disclaimer (and warning), those who know me well, know that I’ve always had rather “edgy” taste when it comes to music, so not all of these songs are appropriate for younger ears (in fact, most of them probably are not). They are however; TOTALLY appropriate when you are on mile 11 of a half-marathon and need some fire to power you through your last two miles. So, that being said…listen at your own risk and add the songs that get your blood pumping to your own “time to kick butt” play list.
