Challenge... find a new anthem song.

I know some of us need a distraction at times so here is a running challenge to occupy us.

Good, positive music can help our souls and lift our spirits. So lets find some anthems. Songs that can lift our spirits, just feel happy, and/or inspire us. Get on Pandora, yahoo music, or any other service and search for ones to share.

When you find one, list it here with the artist name and what you like about it. Any and all genres are welcome and you can post more than one.

I have to go to work and sit in meetings most of today but will check in and contribute when I can.

I did alot of AC/DC....Rocky....Journey.....Talking Heads.....stayed away from thrash metal. I remember putting in my ear buds and playing Marilyn Manson and thinking, wow, thats going to make me sicker....it was putting me in a very dark place!!!
Oh yeah, Outkast....Lonely Island Crew.....so i could laugh too. My daughter got me a bunch of comedian shows that really helped as well.

Ok...here's my first contribution. It's Prizefighter by Trisha Yearwood and Kelly Clarkson. I recently got to go see Garth & Trisha in concer. See Garth live has long been on my bucket list but could never go when my husband was alive because of his illness and no money. I've always thought Trisha is "okay" but Garth is my passion and it was an amazing experience.  It was a new Trisha song called Prizefighter that caught my attention and I think it can speak to many of us fighting this demon...but it has an up tempo and I can belt it out in the car.  Here's the chorus:

When you hit the ground, you find your wings
You go one more round when that bell rings
They say you’re done, but here you come
You’re a hammer hittin’, spittin’ fire, PrizeFighter
When you’re sweating from the fear, you look it the eye
Turn the sound of defeat into your battle cry
Stakes are down, you’re outta luck
Look at you, smiling with a shiner, standing higher
