Music – 15 Inspirational Songs

.·'★•:*                                . * '★•:*

Artists pass on different messages in their songs. For some the lyrics are Inspirational and motivating. I share some below:

.

1) “There can Be Miracles” – By Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey

This song gives a message of hope for those hoping and wishing for the impossible.

.

2) “Wind Beneath my Wings” – By Bette Midler

If you’ve watched the Film: Beaches, then you might feel a bit sad listening to this song, otherwise it’s about the bond of friendship. Knowing someone has always got your back.

.

3) “I believe I can fly” – By R Kelly

This is a song that can inspire people to achieve their goals and make their dreams come true.

.

4) “It’s a Beautiful Day”- By U2

A song affirming you will have a great day, come what may. A nice upbeat song. It will have the neighbours peeping out of their windows at you, as you sing it out loud at weekends.

.

5) “I hope you Dance” – By Lee Ann Womack

It’s like a prayer for kids, wishing them all the best in life.

Lyrics, “I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance, Never settle for the path of least resistance, Living might mean taking chances, But they're worth taking Loving might be a mistake, but it's worth making.”

.

6) “No more Drama” – By Mary J Blige

This is like an “I will Survive Song”. Affirming no more problems in life, but the beat of the song will definitely make you want to dance.

.

7) “Hero” – By Mariah Carey

A song that tells people to believe in themselves. So many people out there don’t live to their full potential because they are afraid of trying certain things – Lyrics: “A Hero lies in you.”

.

8) “I know that I can make it”- By Kirk Franklin

One of millions of Christian songs. I feel the words of this song go through me when I listen to it. They must have prayed over it, before it's realease because I always get goose pimples when listening.

Lyrics: “I know that I can make it, I know that I can stand. No matter what might come my way – my Life is in your hands.”

.

Christina Aquilera

9) “You are Beautiful” - By Christina Aquilera

The video to this song gives the impression, it was written for people who are not happy with their bodies. People with Anorexia, Bulimia etc. Christina affirms to them that they are Beautiful in every single way. It’s not all about looks.

.

10) “The only way is Up” - By Yazz

This is a good one for Motivational Seminars. I remember it was played in NSA Meetings. This was a company that sold products. If you joined, you got a commission and they organised Seminars every month, which always had this song playing out loud in the auditorium.

.

11/12) “We are the World” and “Heal the World” - Both by Michael Jackson

I would love to play “Heal the World” to Osama Bin Laden and company. At the moment (October 2010 – UK and America are on very high Terror Alerts because there have been threats. I think if these songs are listened to regularly, people will find a way to make their own positive difference to the world. I’m grateful for the people who are, but we need more.

.

13) “When the going gets tough”- By Billy Ocean

A song motivating you to keep on moving on in life, even when you face obstacles and challenges.Lyrics: “When the going gets tough, the tough get going”.            Billy Ocean won Lifetime Achievement Award, at the MOBO awards October 2010.

.

14) “Because you loved me” – By Celine Dion

Not just a love song, but one that acknowledges how a partner inspires and builds them. For some, their soul mate is a rock and this song is along those lines.

Lyrics: "You were my strength when I was weak, You were my voice when I couldn't speak, You were my eyes when I couldn't see. You saw the best there was in me, lifted me up when I couldn't reach, You gave me faith 'coz you believe. I'm everything I am because you loved me."

.

15) “Count on Me” - By Whitney Houston and CeCe Winans

Quote:A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.”

Count on me is a beautiful friendship song.It's a message from a friend, that they will always be there for you and you can rely on them.

Good Day.

Geez, here i sit with a tear in my eye. Michael,s 'We are the world' is one of my favorites, plus 'Wind beneath my wings', and 'I hope you dance'. The wind song makes me think of my Sis, Bea, who passed away.I was the last of a very large family and the only one who got to go to college.When i was in the R.N. program, at first, i quit every day because it was so difficult, Bea would encourage me to keep going and when i hear the song, i always think of her.So you've brought back some wonderful memories. Thank you.

Love and Peace

** Aaawh Always Exploring - I'm glad it brought back good memories. ((Big Hug)) Bette sang that song with such passion, it always gives me goose pimples. They say people we lose leave a heartache no one can heal, but memories no one can steal. Keep on staying strong for her. xx

All these songs get your positive emotions flowing.

My favorites: "I believe I can fly"... "Hero"... and "I hope you Dance". If I hear any of these songs on the radio, I immediately start singing along. It may look silly if I'm in public... but, who cares it makes me feel good!!!

Thanks Lady E, great choices! Ciao.

Celine Dion's 'Because You Loved Me' is one of my favs! I cry just about everytime I hear it. She sings it passionately and she has the most beautiful voice. All of the songs you have chosen are good/inspirational. Music is very meaningful. Voted and rated.
