Quality ingredients are essential for not only a great dish but also for creating an ideal atmosphere within the walls of a restaurant for its guests and team. Music is one of those critical ingredients. We asked hospitality leaders to share songs that spark motivation and inspiration -- and then we made a playlist! Give it a listen the next time you need to kickstart yourself (or your whole team) before service or anytime you need a soundtrack to get going.

Here are the go-to songs by some of today's hospitality leaders (and because many couldn't pick just one, we've added all of their picks to the playlist):

We want to hear from you, share your top songs for consideration to be added to the playlist.
