10. Foo Fighters – Walk
This track’s chorus starts with “I’m learning to walk again”, Dave Grohl came up with the verse about “having a trial” after the time he was helping his first daughter Violet Maye on “learning to walk”, and eventually she was able to walk on her own. It may make you stand up and try to walk! And Grohl would succeed in making two people walk not just his daughter.

9. Coldplay – Fix You
This song was written by Chris Martin dedicated to his father-in-law, Bruce Paltrow to “Fix” his then-wife Gwyenth Paltrow. It can always make you feel better.

8. The Beatles – Hey Jude
I consider this song as very helping and inspirational through its simple words and light tune.
Hey Jude” was written by Paul McCartney to comfort John Lennon’s son Julian during his parents’ divorce.

7. Savatage – Morphine Child
I guess this track has a survival powerful theme whether musically or lyrically, by its name it has the “morphine” effect, it may medicate your pain in a way or another.

6. Meatloaf – The Monster is Loose
It’s kinda cool thing to be a monster, epecially when life chains you with pain, then you cut these chains with rage and lose yourself to carry on the fight, as a monster!

5. Scorpions – The Game of Life
If you’re down, rise up and go straight back to the ground. This track may help you a lot!

4. Metallica – Nothing Else Matters
“Never cared for what they do, Never cared for what they know.”
I think this track has a very powerful theme, though it’s not about fighting for life or whatsoever, as a matter of fact, Hetfield wrote this piece to his then girlfriend. But personally, it gives me the power to blow away the haters or depressing people among me. Hope you agree in feeling the same.

3. Aerosmith – Dream on
One of the best classics that may get you again on the road…
“Sing with me, just for today. Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away”
I mean, if this song doesn’t get you going, I don’t know what will.

2. Lynyrd Skynyrd – Still Unbroken
Best cure so far? I guess so.

1. Queen – The Show Must Go On
On the top of the list, we find this track cause it’s the most accurate of them all.
This song was written in the theme of facing tough times with determination and with the furious desire to live it on no matter what. The Show Must Go On cause it’s not the end of the world.
