‘Cause I’ve been wondering, when you gonna see I’m not for sale. I’ve been questioning, when you gonna see,
I’m not a part of your machine, Not a part of your machine.

10) “Eye of the Tiger” – Survivor

It’s the eye of the tiger, it’s the thrill of the fight. Risin’ up to the challenge of our rival. And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night. And he’s watchin’ us all with the eye of the tiger.

Face to face, out in the heat, hangin’ tough, stayin’ hungry. They stack the odds ’til we take to the street,
for the kill with the skill to survive.

11) “Can’t Stop the Feeling” – Justin Timberlake

12) “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” – Kelly Clarkson

You could beat the world. You could beat the war. You could talk to God, go banging on his door. You can throw your hands up. You can beat the clock. You can move a mountain. You can break rocks. You can be a master. Don’t wait for luck. Dedicate yourself and you can find yourself.

14) “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” – Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell

15) “Save the World” – Swedish House Mafia

Turn the crowd up now, we’ll never back down. Shoot down a skyline, watch it in prime time. Turn up the love now, listen up now, turn up the love.
