What is your life anthem?

Everybody has a song that they love and describes them very well. What's yours? Be sure to post some of the lyrics, too.

Mine is Everybody's Changing by Keane.

So little time
Try to understand that I'm
Trying to make a move just to stay in the game
I try to stay awake and remember my name
But everybody's changing
And I don't feel the same.

Brilliant Mind by Furniture :)
And I'm at the stage
Where I want my words heard and no one wants to listen though
No one wants to listen 'cause everybody's yelling
About you and yours and how I'd have the answer if only I'd open up up up and let you in

They must be out of their brilliant minds
Although Joe Dolce's Shaddupayaface would also work :D

Devil's Refugee

Right now: Runaway by Jamiroquai

Unfortunately, mine is more a soundtrack rather than anthem. It would be Batman Begins..... ;)

Definitely Roads by Portishead.
That's one of my favourite songs!

Right now, it's The Staunton Lick, it might change in a few months time though
Can a Lemon Jelly song really be a life anthem?

Anyway, for me, "Leaders of the Free World" (by Elbow) should play whenever you see me thinking. Although, it's a strange question, because Leaders of the Free World would represent my thoughts and worries sometimes, but if you're just asking for a song that should play while I'm strutting down the street, then Light and Day (Polyphonic Spree), or another song that has a similar tone. :)

Dancing in the Moonlight by King Harvest...

My dog could have just died, and that song would put me in a good mood...
