Some inspiration... in Disney!
Remember "Hercules"? One of my favorite scenes is when the young Hercules leaves home to find his place amongst the gods. The song he sings on his journey is quite touching.
This song from "Mulan" gets me pumped! When the Chinese army captain, Li Shang is training his troops for battle with the invading Huns, he tells his men (and Mulan), that he is going to make men out of them. This song will "make a man out of you"!
This last song was not in the movie "The Lion King," but rather, in Julie Taymor's spectacular Broadway production. It also gets me pumped. It builds to a rather awesome climax. Have a listen!
