Some days just seem to lag. You look at the clock and it’s 3:00, and then 5 hours later it’s only 3:10.
Maybe it’s the plans you made that are bumming you out. You told your friend you’d meet her at 7:30, but you’re so tired and you’d rather watch Netflix in your PJs than go out.
Either way, you need some excitement, some music to get you out of that funk and your blood pumping through your veins. One AskReddit thread asked people to recommend their hype song, and it’s full of tunes that will perk you up. So if you’re looking for a mid-week jam session, put all of these songs on a playlist right now and use it to HYPE YO’SELF whenever you need some energy!

“I once listened to 1812 Overture for the last couple miles of the Boston Marathon.
