The right music can make all the difference when you’re trying to be productive. With that in mind, here is a compiled ultimate pump-up playlist to keep you sharp and focused while you’re at work. As an added bonus, you can find the embedded Spotify playlist at the bottom of this post.

Songs About Motivation

1. “Eye of the Tiger” — Survivor

No pump-up playlist is complete without this classic.

2. “The Final Countdown” — Europe

According to the Pomodoro technique, you’re most productive when you work in blocks — typically 25 minutes long — then take a five-minute break. Blast this tune during the first or last five minutes of your work sprints to get your energy levels up.

3. “Bright Future in Sales” — Fountains of Wayne


(It’d be a shame if you had to interrupt your flow to log all of your prospecting activity. If you need a sales tool that works for you and not the other way around, try HubSpot’s free CRM today.)

4. “Hungry Like the Wolf” — Duran Duran

Because when you’re prospecting, you should be on the hunt. Just like a wolf.

5. “Livin’ On a Prayer” — Bon Jovi

For the last few days of the month when you need to close deals and create new opportunities at the same time.

6. “Can’t Hold Us — feat. Ray Dalton” — Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Nothing can stop you — not even the ceiling.

7. “Survivor” — Destiny’s Child

You’re a survivor and you’ll make it through this week!

8. “Celebration” — Kool & the Gang

Sometimes your prospects will pick up the phone, want to talk to you, and be a great fit. After you hang up the phone, play this song. You deserve it.

9. “Welcome to the Jungle” — Guns N’ Roses

Growth is a team sport, but prospecting isn’t. It’s every salesperson for themselves in the jungle of leads … unless you find one that’s not in your territory.

10. “Wake Me Up When September Ends” — Green Day

What’s a pump-up playlist without at least one song that recognizes how tough it is to stay pumped? Enter Green Day.

11. “Honey, I’m Good” — Andy Grammer

Because it’s okay to walk away from a prospect that just isn’t a good fit.

12. “No Sleep Till Brooklyn” — Beastie Boys

More like, “No Sleep Till a Discovery Call Gets Scheduled.”

13. “Want to Want Me” — Jason Derulo

Replace the word “girl” with “prospect” and this song might as well be about every salesperson, ever.

14. “Build Me Up Buttercup” — The Foundations

Sometimes your prospects just won’t get back to you, and The Foundations know how you feel.

15. “Cheerleader (Felix Jaehn Remix)” — Omi

Replace “cheerleader” with “champion” and imagine yourself finding one. The Secret works, right?

16. Feel It Still — Portugal. The Man

This unapologetically upbeat track will make you feel just a little bit less like a desk jockey.

17. Life Itself — Glass Animals

I’ll admit it. This one has nothing to do with sales. But it’s an energetic jam that’s been on repeat all summer and always gives me an energy boost when I need it.

18. Feel Good — Gryffin, Illenium, Daya

The title says it all. This track will never fail to put you in a good mood and mentally reset after a hard day.

Songs About Teamwork

19. We Are the Champions — Queen

Do I need to say more?

20. “We Are Family” — Sister Sledge

Sales can be tough. But remember you and your team are in it together.

21. “We Can Work it Out” — The Beatles

Sometimes you’ll run into roadblocks. But you and your team can and will work it out.

22. “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” — Tammi Terrell & Marvin Gaye

Mountains and valleys and rivers weren’t enough to stop Tammi and Marvin from getting in touch, so what’s your excuse? There are salespeople out there willing to go in a dunk tank for a sale, so pick up the phone and start calling your prospects!

23. “Whatever it Takes” — Imagine Dragons

You and your team have got what it takes, and will do whatever it takes to reach your goals.

24. The Sound — The 1975

The 1975 frontman Matty Healy uses this song as a bombastic end to the group’s live performances for a reason — the sheer energy will wake you right up.

25. “Just What I Needed” — The Cars

The perfect jam for when you find that perfect teammate.

Songs About Leadership

26. “The Greatest” — Sia, Kendrick Lamar

You’re the greatest! Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

27. “Don’t Stop Believin'” — Journey


28. BO$$ — Fifth Harmony

A modern-day girl-power anthem.

29. “It’s a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock ‘n’ Roll)” — AC/DC

If you wanna rock ‘n’ roll get into President’s Club, this song is a good reminder that it won’t be an easy road.

30. “Guiding Light” — Mumford and Sons

Be the guiding light for your team.

31. “My Shot (feat. Busta Rhymes, Joell Ortiz & Nate Ruess) — Rise Up Remix” — The Roots

Don’t throw away your shot — help your team rise up.
