‘Survivor’ Playlist

It’s been one of those days and you just need a little pep talk wrapped up in a decent pop tune.

The ‘Survivor’ playlist is a collection of uplifting and empowering songs – use it as a soundtrack for seasons of moving on, and times when you need to pick yourself up and just celebrate life.

Here are some of my favourite ‘Survivor’ songs:

Erik Hassle – Bump In The Road
“If a bird can sing with a broken wing, you learn to bend when the wind blows… this is a bump in the road. Don’t give up.”

Kelis – Lil’ Star
“Just keep trying and trying, it’s just a matter of timing. Though the grinding is tiring, don’t let ’em stop you from smiling.”

Lady Gaga – Dance In The Dark
“You will never fall apart… together we’ll dance in the dark.”

Jennifer Lopez – Mile In These Shoes
“I’m walking tall, I don’t let their hatred test me… my feet pound the ground, as I stomp it out. I dare you to walk a mile in my shoes.”

Kelly Rowland – Shake Them Haters Off
“Wake up in the morning, turn off my alarm and get a stretch and yawn in – start shakin’ haters off!”

Christina Aguilera – Fighter
“It makes me that much stronger, makes me work a little harder, makes me that much wiser. Thanks for making me a fighter.”

Maria Mena – All This Time (Pick-Me-Up Song)
“Think all the mean girls that pulled your hair, are barefoot now and pregnant there. And you write pop songs and get to travel round the world.”

Vanessa Amorosi – This Is Who I Am
“But then I learned, after being burned. To get back up and move straight on. Stop the tears, people move on.”

Jamelia – Got It So Good
“Got to re-adjust your point of view, it’s time to put some faith in you. How your life is surely gonna change…”

Shania Twain – Up!
“When everything is going wrong, don’t worry it won’t last for long… you gotta keep on holdin’ on.”

Sugababes – Sweet & Amazing (Make It The Best)
“Live each day like your last one, cause there’s joy in every second.”

Sophie Ellis-Bextor – Heartbreak (Make Me A Dancer)
“And with each step, I will forget. Forget all of those memories of you…”
