Default upbeat & STRONG confident music

I'm looking for music that's upbeat, confident, and sung from a position of strength. I'd appreciate any recommendations.

Here I've defined some elements that I'm looking for.
  1. upbeat : music you want to tap your foot to
  2. confident : energizes you to believe in yourself
  3. strong resolve : being secure in yourself & your abilities
  4. instrumentation : guitar/banjo, drums, maybe piano, etc.
  5. style : [optional] folk, country, indie, etc.
  6. demographic : [optional] I'm picturing a group of guys in their mid 20's to high 30's making this sort of music

Here are some examples that have some elements but are missing others.

Eric Clapton - Superman Inside
  1. upbeat : yes
  2. confident : yes
  3. strong resolve : sure
  4. instrumentation : yeah
  5. style : no complaints

Garth Brooks - Standing Outside the Fire
  1. upbeat : mostly
  2. confident : yeah
  3. strong resolve : almost there
  4. instrumentation : sure
  5. style : yeah

Rod Stewart - Faith of the Heart
  1. upbeat : too ballad-y
  2. confident : yeah
  3. strong resolve : nope
  4. instrumentation : sure
  5. style : eh

Eric Church - Keep On
  1. upbeat : yup
  2. confident : yeah
  3. strong resolve : kinda arrogant
  4. instrumentation : sure
  5. style : yeah

Runner Runner - Unstoppable
  1. upbeat : absolutely
  2. confident : yeah
  3. strong resolve : more arrogant than secure
  4. instrumentation : sure
  5. style : no complaints

Steve Winwood - While You See a Chance
  1. upbeat : too ballad-y
  2. confident : yeah
  3. strong resolve : not really
  4. instrumentation : no complaints
  5. style : not quite

Noah Gundersen - Ledges
  1. upbeat : almost there
  2. confident : almost
  3. strong resolve : not really
  4. instrumentation : excellent
  5. style : absolutely

If you feel like you know what I'm looking for & believe there is a more appropriate avenue for my inquiry, feel free to redirect me.

Thanks in advance for any and all assistance.

I can't help I'm afraid but am curious as to why you want such specific music? Are you due to fight someone and need psyching up?

As kids, my brother told me if I ever saw him in a fight I was to run home, grab the portable tape player, then run back to the fight and play Survivor's 'Eye of The Tiger' loud as the song would help him triumph over whoever he was fighting.

I never did get to test out his claim.

The main reason is that I like to listen to music that matches my mood. (as opposed to listening to music in order to change my mood)

There have been times where I've felt so great, confident, and happy with where I am in life, and thought "you know, it'd be great to listen to some music that matches how I'm feeling right now".

So I started looking. And looking. It started to really surprise me that I would have such difficulty in my search!

Yo DriveDatCarDonnaShore, that version sounds horrible. It's not even the original. It some cheesy synthesizer remake. I thought it was better the first time around.

Rocky Theme Song • Gonna Fly Now • Bill Conti


upbeat : yo
confident : yo
strong resolve : yo
instrumentation : instruments, real ones
style : Orchestral
display of strength : "Yo Adrienne, I did it."


DriveYourCarDownToTheSea how about the theme to Rocky III?

Survivor - Eye Of The Tiger


upbeat : yeah
confident : heck yeah
strong resolve : you bet
instrumentation : strong
style : 80s Rock
display of strength : "Rising up the challenge of our rival."
