In the 2010 movie “Burlesque,” Cher plays a business owner whose nightclub is on the verge of foreclosure. Discouraged, her character sings the now-Golden Globe winning song, “You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me,” to lift her spirits.

Inspired by a remix of that tune, which landed at No. 1 on Billboard’s Dance/Club Play Songs chart last week, BusinessNewsDaily assembled this list of motivational songs that will invigorate any down-on-their-luck business owner or entrepreneur as much as – if not more than – Cher belting, “I've been brought down to my knees … but I can take it … you haven't seen the last of me.”

  • “You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me” by Cher (dance remix)
