In the wake of the superb survival-against-the-odds epic Deepwater Horizon, in which Mark Wahlberg leaps into action aboard an imperilled oil-rig, we've come over all heroic for this week's instalment of your Movie Mixtape.
We've rounded up some of the most fist-pumpingly heroic movie anthems that make us feel good – but will your favourites make the grade? Let's take a look!
I Need a Hero – Bonnie Tyler
Heard in: Shrek 2
It's time to break out the hairspray and exercise those vocal chords as we bring you one of the quintessential eighties power anthems. Plus, one of our favourite films, Shrek 2, put it to inspired use by combining the number with a Godzilla-sized Gingerbread Man – what's not to like?
You're the Best – Joe Esposito
Heard in: The Karate Kid
No not the 2010 Jaden Smith remake but the original eighties classic. You know those songs that are singlehandedly able to pull you off the floor and make you feel like Daniel-san? Look no further than here.
Flash – Queen
Heard in: Flash Gordon
Who needs unnecessarily complicated lyrics when a simple blast of 'Flash... aaaaahhhh!' immediately makes you feel like the most invincible figure in the whole universe? Just stick it on – you know you want to.
Eye of the Tiger – Survivor
Heard in: Rocky II
Do you really need us to explain this one? Put simply, movie songs don't get more heroic or motivational – just a few seconds of it will make you feel like Rocky himself, someone capable of taking on whatever difficulties are headed your way, and winning.
We Don't Need Another Hero – Tina Turner
Heard in: Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome
Put all memories of Tina's bouffant-haired performance out of your mind and simply revel in the muscular nature of her classic eighties hit. Are you starting to feel mighty yet?
Heroes – David Bowie
Heard in: The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Devastating as it is to think the music icon is no longer with us, he did leave us with a legacy of soul-stirring numbers. This 1977 classic was used to brilliant effect in the 2012 indie drama starring Logan Lerman but truthfully, we could listen to it anywhere and automatically feel good.
