I'm not giving in

Do you ever like to use a song to get pumped up and motivated for the day of work?

Need to get those "resistant to failure" synapses firing?

Repeat with me, "I'm not giving in!"


I'm always amazed at how a video like this can get any thumbs down at all. 57K thumbs up with 680 thumbs down...Enjoy it!

Seriously one of the best songs I've heard in a long time. Song of the year for me. The dramatic effect of the video really makes it sound a bit more awesome, probably.

    Definitely Philippines, I think Manila is what I read when I researched the video.

    Nice video. There are so many songs that are quite inspirational. Music can be constructive or destructive.

    Learn from your mistakes, but don't give in!

    The most powerful force in the world is choice.

    Awesome! The video looks great specially with the story they had.
    It's my first time watching this video and I can easily identify where this video was taken.

    It's only a matter of choice. If you choose to be successful then you'll be successful but if you just choose to do nothing you can do nothing.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I used to date a girl from Cebu, for quite a while actually, ha ha.

    Yeah it's a pretty cool video. Think the band is from UK.

    Nice video. Thanks for the share. It amazes me that simple words like "I'm Not Giving In" can impact you. And I thought that it was inspirational to see and do not understand how there can be that many thumbs down either. Music makes many motivated, that is for sure.

    I just play 'Eye of the Tiger' and picture myself doing everything in slow motion.

    Do you run up a big set of steps too? And drink raw eggs?

    Love the video so much. I am not giving in. The stories of two brothers are like two paths that we have to decide in our life. It is like not giving up and doing what is right.

    That's a good one sure.

    I also like "What you waiting for" by Gwen Stefani.

    Pretty sure you did ha ha.

    What do you mean by saying it has mixed messages?

    It's not a mixed message, it's an example of 2 kids come from the same background, they're good friends, and one chooses the "good" way and one chooses the "bad" way and suffers the consequences. It's essentially a morality tale, that's all.

    I liked it more for the song but the video adds to it. But in essence the "good" kid doesn't "give in" to the negative pressures of life and chooses an optimistic and more constructive path to life, whereas his friend who hangs out with the drug dealers is the example of what not to do.
