Pump Up Songs

1. "Tightrope" -- Janelle Monáe

Go ahead, dance up on them haters ... there are enough of them in sales.

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. "Good as Hell" -- Lizzo

Note: Explicit lyrics

Boss up and change your life. This one might be explicit, but pop your headphones in and welcome those feel-good tunes.


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

Note: Explicit lyrics

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

13. "Hall of Fame" -- The Script ft. will.i.am

Work every day like you want to be in the hall of fame.

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

Do I need to say more?

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.

The perfect jam for when you find that perfect teammate.
