It’s Thursday – every #eventprofs favorite day of the week. Why? Because MeetingPlay shares their infamous Thursday playlist. Songs to motivate and encourage every event professional.

We at MeetingPlay know how hard the tasks are – how overwhelming the day in and night out task may seem.

But just like us at MeetingPlay – we know that every event professional can do it, and that is why this week we’re sharing 13 songs to help event professionals keep the momentum.

Dear Event Professional: You’re not alone – MeetingPlay - the leading and most engaging mobile event app – is here by yourside, even if it’s just with this weeks playlist!

(And even though MeetingPlay’s CEO Joe Schwinger wishes we would do a repeat song and include Rachel Platten’s ‘Fight Song’, we promise this list doesn’t include it!)

1. Avicii - Wake Me Up

Sing along:
I can't tell where the journey will end
But I know where to start

2. Daughter – Youth

Sing along:
And if you're still breathing, you're the lucky ones.
'Cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs.

3. Ben Howard – Keep Your Head Up

Sing along:
Oh my my darlin' keep your head up, keep your heart strong.
No no no no, keep your mind set in your ways, keep your heart strong.

4. Chumbawamba – Tubthumping

(Yeah, we went there, but how couldn’t we?)
Sing along:
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never gonna keep me down

5. Imagine Dragons – It’s Time

Sing along:
It's time to begin, isn't it?
I get a little bit bigger but then I'll admit

6. Fun – Carry On

Sing along:
If you're lost and alone
Or you're sinking like a stone.
Carry on.
May your past be the sound
Of your feet upon the ground.
Carry on.

7. Michael Franti & Spearhead - Hey World (Don't Give Up)

Sing along:
Don't give up on me, I won't give up on you
Just believe in me like I believe in you

8. Florence & the Machine – Shake it Out

Sing along:
And I am done with my graceless heart
So tonight I'm gonna cut it out and then restart
'Cause I like to keep my issues drawn
It's always darkest before the dawn

9. Jessie J – Who You Are

Sing along:
Don't lose who you are in the blur of the stars!
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay.
Sometimes it's hard to follow your heart.
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are!

10. U2 – Walk On

Sing along:
You could have flown away
A singing bird
In an open cage
Who will only fly
Only fly for freedom
Walk on

11. Jimmy Eat World – The Middle

Sing along:
It just takes some time,
Little girl, you're in the middle of the ride.
Everything, everything will be just fine,
Everything, everything will be alright, alright.

12. Modest Mouse – Float On

Sing along:
Even if things get heavy we'll all float on alright
Already we'll all float on alright
Don't you worry we'll all float on alright
All float on

13. Josh Groban – You Are Loved (Don’t Give Up)

(Yeah, we also went there. But every event professional who works their tooshies off, deserves to know they are loved and appreciated, if only by Josh Groban himself!)
Sing along:
Don't give up
It's just the weight of the world
Don't give up
Every one needs to be heard
You are loved
