A classical song from the famous movie: Rocky. Does Sylvester Stallone also appear in your mind every time you hear this song?

You must fight just to keep them alive
It’s the eye of the tiger
It’s the thrill of the fight…

2. Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You) – kelly Clarson

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger

Footsteps even lighter
Doesn’t mean I’m over ’cause you’re gone

3. Lose Yourself – Eminem

Look
If you had
One shot
Or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted

It goes on and on, and on, and on

5. Fight Song – Rachel Platten

This is my fight song
Take back my life song

8. Firework – Katy Perry

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?
Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards, one blow from cavin’ in?

Six feet under screams, but no one seems to hear a thing
Do you know that there’s still a chance for you?
‘Cause there’s a spark in you

9. Ain’t No Mountain High Enough – Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell

If you need me, call me,

Ain’t no valley low enough,
Ain’t no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you, baby

10. Born to run – Bruce Springsteen

Wendy, let me in, I wanna be your friend
I wanna guard your dreams and visions

Oh, will you walk with me out on the wire?
‘Cause, baby, I’m just a scared and lonely rider
But I…

Been dreaming of this since a child
I’m on top of the world

ou stripped your love down to the wire
Fire shy and cold alone outside

Cause I see you for you and your beautiful scars
So take my hand, don’t let go

But I don’t feel like dancin’ when the old Joanna plays
My heart could take a chance but my two feet can’t find a way
You think that I could muster up a little soft shoe gentle sway
But I don’t feel like dancin’, no sir, no dancin’ today
Don’t feel like dancin’, dancin’
Even if I find nothin’ better to do
Don’t feel like dancin’, dancin’
Why’d you break it…

41. Rihanna – Diamonds

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond

You and I, you and I
We’re like diamonds in the sky
You’re a shooting star I see
A vision of ecstasy
When you hold me, I’m alive
