1. "Best Day of My Life" by American Authors

This 2014 song celebrates the triumph and sheer giddiness you feel when you finally achieve a hard-fought goal. You feel like you're on top of the world, like you've touched the clouds, like you can do anything now. Haven't you felt the glory of winning like this?

I'm never gonna look back
Whoa, I'm never gonna give it up
No, just don't wake me now.

Believe in Yourself

"If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride and never quit, you'll be a winner. The price of victory is high but so are the rewards." -  Paul "Bear" Bryant, American football coach

"If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride and never quit, you'll be a winner. The price of victory is high but so are the rewards." - Paul "Bear" Bryant, American football coach

2. "Simply the Best" by Tina Turner

This is a shout out to winners everywhere:

You're simply the best, better than all the rest
Better than anyone, anyone I've ever met.

The key message in this 1991 song resonates as loud as a firecracker. If you're the best at what you do, hold you're head up high and accept the accolades. You deserve it!

3. "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" by Starship

What an empowering song! This 1987 hit encourages teamwork in the achievement of a goal, promising that if you just stick together you'll be unstoppable.

4. "On Top of the World" by Imagine Dragons

You've paid your dues. You've been dreaming of this amazing moment since you were a child, and now you're here.

It's been a long way up, so just smile and enjoy the view while you listen to this energizing 2012 song. This hit has been used throughout popular culture, from a Coca-Cola video to a FIFA video game series, to promotional advertisements for the NBA as well as several children's movies.

"It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell." - Buddha

How to Win Gracefully

Although no one likes a sore loser, what's truly worse is a winner who can't get over themselves. Be a graceful champion by following these pointers:

  • Acknowledge something positive about your opponent: their tenacity, skill, or professionalism. They had similar hopes of winning, and you easily could have been in their losing position. Show some respect by shaking their hand after the competition is over or reaching out in a similar way.
  • Thank those who got you where you are: supporters, mentors, trainers, people behind the scenes who helped you shine like a rockstar.
  • You might be the best in the world or the next big thing, but let others engage in the hype on your behalf. Gloating is ugly.
  • When it comes to celebrating, use good judgment. There are some great songs on this playlist (like "Another One Bites the Dust") but understand that there's a time and place for every song and celebration.

5. "One Moment in Time" by Whitney Houston

Proudly play this 1988 song when you've labored intensively towards one illustrious achievement and you're approaching the pinnacle of success. Breathe deeply, then bask in the glory and enjoy your moment:

I've lived to be the very best
I want it all, no time for less
I've laid the plans
Now lay the chance
Here in my hands.

6. "Celebration" by Kool & the Gang

What would any celebration be without this classic 1980 worldwide hit? It's appropriate no matter what achievement or happy event you're commemorating. The song encourages good times, laughter, and coming together.

7. "Ain't No Stopping Us Now" by McFadden and Whitehead

On the road to sweet success, it's natural to encounter some potholes and barriers. But you're a fighter and you found a way over, around and through any obstacle put in your way. Why? Because that's the kind of winner you are! This encouraging 1979 song will leave you pumped up and headed to the next victory.

8. “We Are the Champions” by Queen

The toughest thing about being a champion is staying on top. This 1977 classic is an anthem to greatness.

If you've paid your dues, learned from your mistakes, and repeatedly coming back fighting your way to victory, then you know that true champions never rest on their laurels. Being the best gains you respect, but you have to keep on earning it.

9. "Winning" by Santana

In this catchy 1976 song, a man describes how he was once down on his luck but he is now winning and doesn't ever plan on losing again. Losing makes victory all the sweeter, don't you think?

Expect to Win

"I never expect to lose. Even when I'm the underdog, I still prepare a victory speech." H. Jackson Brown, Jr., American author

"I never expect to lose. Even when I'm the underdog, I still prepare a victory speech." H. Jackson Brown, Jr., American author

10. "I’m Still Standing" by Elton John

You've encountered trouble on your way to triumph, suffered setback, and trudged onward to your goal — battlescarred and bruised but not beaten. If you're proud of your survivor instinct after everything you've been through, then adopt this 1983 song as your celebration anthem. Let the world know that winning isn't always easy, but it is worth the struggle!

11. "Hall of Fame" by The Script featuring will.i.am

Hey, champ, you're the master of your own destiny. Whatever your talent, motivation or goal, this 2012 song compels you make your mark on the world. You have what it takes to see your name written in the hall of fame.

12. "It's My Life" by Bon Jovi

Celebrate your victory your way. This 2000 hit recognizes that life is short and ultimately we have to make ourselves happy. Do good work, stand your ground, and be proud of who you are. Success will follow.

13. "Good Feeling" by Flo Rida

Wouldn't you like to wake up feeling like this one day? The man in this 2012 song describes feeling brave, powerful, lucky, strong, generous, and smart. (Wow, all those things?)

Chances are, if you're celebrating a major win, you might be feeling like this yourself:

Yeah I got a brand new spirit,
Speak it and it's done
Woke up on the side of the bed like I won
Talk like a winner, my chest to that sun.

14. "We Will Rock You" by Queen

This famous 1977 song has become both a worldwide sports anthem and one of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Times. It's about getting ready to completely dominate one's opponent. In other words, get out the celebration playlist because you're headed for sweet victory.

In Winning, Character Counts

"Show class, have pride, and display character. If you do, winning takes care of itself." Paul "Bear" Bryant, American football coach

"Show class, have pride, and display character. If you do, winning takes care of itself." Paul "Bear" Bryant, American football coach

15. "Life’s Been Good" by Joe Walsh

How do you measure success? The guy in this 1978 classic song measures it through a fast-paced material lifestyle:

  • a mansion he owns but has never visited
  • living in hotels and tearing out the walls
  • a Maserati that he's lost the license to for driving too fast and
  • partying until 4 a.m.

16. "All Star" by Smash Mouth

You're a winner who clawed your way to the top of your game. Celebrate your awesomeness with this 1999 hit:

Hey now, you're an All Star. Get your game on, go play
Hey now, you're a Rock Star. Get the show on get paid
And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold.

Victories Can Be Incremental as Well as Monumental

"Victory is won not in miles but in inches. Win a little now, hold your ground, and later, win a little more." - Louis L'Amour, American novelist

"Victory is won not in miles but in inches. Win a little now, hold your ground, and later, win a little more." - Louis L'Amour, American novelist

17. "It's Good to Be Alive" by Andy Grammer

For years you've been paying your dues, doing your thing, hoping that in the end you'll see some kind of recognition and reward. This 2014 song recognizes what it feels like to reach the success you've longed for.

Having gone from zero to hero, the protagonist feels great to be alive:

I think I finally found my hallelujah
I've been waiting for this moment all my life
Now all my dreams are coming true, yeah
I've been waiting for this moment ... .

18. "Hell Yeah" by Montgomery Gentry

Perhaps you're a powerbroker businesswoman who just landed a multi-million dollar contract. Or you're a gritty fella whose success is a steady paycheck and 25 years of company service. Whatever your triumph, celebrate it with this rousing 2002 victory song. After all, you're a big freaking deal!

19. “Another One Bites the Dust” by Queen

Sometimes when you win, you just want to rub your opponent's face in it. This 1980 song is a great way to do it, emphasizing that they're one in a string of opponents who has faced you and lost. Better luck next time, loser!

"Victory belongs to the most persevering." - Napoleon Bonaparte

"Victory belongs to the most persevering." - Napoleon Bonaparte

20. "I’m Too Sexy" by Right Said Fred

If winning is sexy, then this describes you! While not exactly a graceful victory song, this 1992 hit is a humorous way to celebrate your achievement. The protagonist in the song "so sexy it hurts." Yep, you know the feeling.

21. “Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey

This 1981 success anthem reminds us that while we all strive for dreams, only some of us will attain them. The difference in winners and losers is hard work and believing in the power of oneself.

22. "I Gotta Feeling" by the Black Eyed Peas

This 2009 song predicts that tonight is going to be a night to remember. After a win like yours, you deserve to cut loose.

23. "Let's Get It Started" by Black Eyed Peas

After your big win, this 2005 song is a great way to get the celebration cranked way up. You've worked hard, so finally it's time to celebrate, live it up, and make the night unforgettable.

"Be nice to people on your way up because you'll meet them on your way down." Wilson Mizner, American playwright

"Be nice to people on your way up because you'll meet them on your way down." Wilson Mizner, American playwright

24. "How Do You Like Me Now" by Toby Keith

This 1999 song is about an underdog who finally made a success of himself, so he reminds the doubter in his past that he is well on his way to stardom. The doubter in the song was a popular high school girl who didn't return his affections. Now that he is an up-and-coming singer, he's rubbing her face in his success. Sounds a bit autobiographical, you think?

"It's not the winning that teaches you how to be resilient. It's the setback. It's the loss." - Beth Brooke

"It's not the winning that teaches you how to be resilient. It's the setback. It's the loss." - Beth Brooke

25. “U Can’t Touch This” by MC Hammer

You've scored a big win, and this popular 1990 song is a fun way to remind your opponent that they didn't even come close. (Cue evil snicker.)

"Whenever you see a successful person, you only see the public glories, never the private sacrifices to reach them." Vaibhav Shah

Questions & Answers

Question: What song is about how the journey is better than success?

Answer: There is a 2009 song by India Arie called "A Beautiful Day." Here are sample lyrics and the YouTube link:

Life is a journey,

Not a destination,

There are no mistakes,

Just chances we’ve taken

Lay down your regrets cause all we have is now

Wake up in the morning

And get out of bed

Start making a mental list in my head

Of all of the things that I am grateful for

Early in the morning

It’s the dawn of a new day

New hopes new dreams new ways

I open up my eyes and

I open up my mind and

I wonder how life will surprise me today ... .

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZBI6o5jl5E

Question: What is a good song for the road to success?

Answer: I suggest that you take a look at songs that are used for graduations, such as "Life Is a Highway" by Tom Cochrane (1991) or Rascal Flatts (2006). Also review the large number of tunes available on the playlist: "Songs for a Graduation Playlist" http://hub.me/aj9Ov

Jose T - That sounds like a great video and a perfect song for the occasion. I'm adding the song as #66. Thank you for the suggestion. Terrific!

Heroes (We Can Be) Alesso f. ToveLo

I used this song in a video/picture montage for my daughter's school volleyball team, and really invokes emotion.

Mission accomplished as in all your other lists. I feel like celebrating. The Chariot of Fire theme song still lights my fire.

Patricia - You gotta celebrate what you can. Winning is a mindset! Thanks for stopping by!

Patricia Scott from North Central Florida on July 06, 2016:

Hi Flourish I think we must be kindred spirits (like many others who must join us) as music is a huge part of my journey....the rhythm and lyrics move me to feel things I would probably otherwise leave undiscovered. Great great sharing....so many really great songs that nail feelings so well.

Angels are on the way to you this morning ps

FaithReaper - I'm happy you are cured, too! If that's not reason to celebrate, I don't know what is! You're here for a reason! Spread the love!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on July 05, 2016:

Genna - So glad to hear you look forward to them. I never thought this would be my niche but I love doing these.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on July 05, 2016:

Henna - Thank you so much for your kind encouragement! Have a great week!

Faith Reaper from southern USA on July 05, 2016:

Wow, Flourish,

I missed this fab list of celebratory music, and you even included Santana. You rock, girl!

I praise God that He healed me of DCIS breast cancer ...that is sure enough something to celebrate, and so I celebrate each day of life I am given.

Bless you

Genna - Thank you for your kind kudos. I enjoy both Queen and Journey, too! They are true classics, timeless treasures. Have a great holiday weekend!

Frank - Those songs are often played as celebratory songs, such as at sporting events. For example "Beat It' to send the other team home: "You better run, you better do what you can / Don't wanna see no blood, don't be a macho man / You wanna be tough, better do what you can ... ." And I'm Still Standing is the ultimate comeback song. Although it's about a love relationship, it's about someone who has been battled and bruised and yet has lived through it. And that's what success is all about. "Don't you know I'm still standing better than I ever did / Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid / I'm still standing after all this time / Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind / I'm still standing yeah yeah yeah ..."

Boomer Music Man - Glad you liked this so much! Have a great 4th of July weekend!

Boomer Music Man on July 01, 2016:

thank you so much for your comments on my blog I love this blog and the list of songs you I made. I love your blogs. They are one of the best blogs I have ever seen. I like the write ups you made on Don't Stop Believin and Another one Bites the dust. The list is just perfect.

Genna East from Massachusetts, USA on July 01, 2016:

Tina Turner (a class act in every sense of the word), Queen; Journey (Don't Stop Believin is favorite); are among my favorites on this terrific list. I always look forward to your music hubs, and this article has to be one of your best. :-)

Frank Atanacio on July 01, 2016:

I'm still standing and beat it was about winning? I never knew that now I had to replay the songs and actually listen to the lyrics..LOL I still love when you do these hubs..:) Frank

Linda - So glad you enjoyed this so much. I like the upbeat songs, too! Your idea of a roadtrip playlist is a good one; sometimes on a long drive you need to keep things hopping.

Linda Lum from Washington State, USA on June 29, 2016:

Flourish - This is probably my favorite of all of the lists you have put together thusfar. I'm with Bill--I LOVE Queen (we're the same age), but "Best Day of My Life" always gets my toes tapping and my mood soaring upward when I hear it. Toss in a bit of Journey, the Rocky theme, and Another One Bites the Dust and I'm a happy gal. Thinking I should put all of these on a stick for the next road trip. Thanks for a FUN, FUN, FUN hub.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on June 29, 2016:

Bill - Glad you're a fan. Have a great week!

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on June 29, 2016:

You know I love these lists....a little bit of country here, a little bit of rock n roll. Something for everyone.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on June 28, 2016:

Larry - Glad you like it. With the Olympics coming up, it had me thinking that hey, don't we need to get ready to celebrate our wins? Thanks for stopping by. I love Queen songs; call me old.

Larry Rankin from Oklahoma on June 28, 2016:

Great list! Personally, "We are the Champions" is the one gets me fired up the most:-)

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on June 28, 2016:

Kaili - Thank you for your loyal following and for being the first one to comment! I appreciate you!

Kaili Bisson from Canada on June 28, 2016:

Another wonderful list....boy, some long forgotten neurons sure fired off in my brain reading this. Perfect summer hub!
