  • This was one of the songs Michael Phelps listened to on his iPod before meets at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. Whatever he did worked, as Phelps won 7 gold medals at the games. Some of the inspirational lyrics in this track include: "I'm the best," "I know the game like I'm reffin' it," and "I'm a missile like the Scud." Some scientists believe that music helps performance by raising oxygen levels in the blood. >>
