hi, did you know a movie called Invictus is coming out?
this might not be what your looking for, but fighter, by Christina Aguilerra is inspritational to me.
sweet, I did not know of the movie... must look it up!
Thanks Justine, for the song suggestion, I will check it out!
have you heard Teddy Pendagrass' your my inspiration, bit on the romantic side though
have you heard "Wind Beneath My Wings"? Don't remember who sang it though.
My vote for Christina Aguillera too - Beautiful and Turn to you are inspirational to me.
I also like the classic Simon and Garfunkel Bridge Over Troubled Water.
I always enjoyed Rascall Flatts song 'Stand' as an inspirational song
Here's some suggestions, too: I*n*v*i*c*t*u*s
Toby Keith...who has some good inspirational ones. Like:
Cryin for Me (Wayman's Song)
Lost You Anyway
She Never Cried in Front of Me
But...some are sad. These come to mind...and he's got a bunch more!
Thank you EVERYONE!!! I so appreicate ALL your inputs!! yippee!!
I have the starts to a couple poems just laying dormant...I often get revved by music for inspriation... feeling a bit dry of fresh inspiring music, Hmph! So thank you!!
Muse - Thoughts of a dying athiest, infact anything by muse.
Josh Groban's, "You Raise Me Up," is an extremely inspirational song.
Thank you ALL! Some really great songs... I think, I now have a few to keep me going!
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
I don't quite know
How to say
How I feel
Those three words
Are said too much
They're not enough
"Chasing Cars" Snow Patrol
Thanks everyone, I do have some great ones to work with now!
Have you thought of using inspirational historical people to get those juices going? Iliketrains did a tune about Spencer Percievil - the first British Prime Minister to be assassignated. It has to be something that touches you. Good luck!
But.... My All Time Favourite is:
"Quick, Pass me the Radish" - by The Noctural Whispering Moles.
Don't stop by fleetwood mac and shining star by earth,wind and fire.
So awesome to see this thread is alive... I greatly appreciate ALL of the special songs everybody is sharing...lovely songs
The Church from their Seance album, the song(s) Fly/One Day. Still sends shivers down my spine after all these years. Very inspirational, positive feeling.
Having been a singer myself for a number of years and also a person who has had to endure a lot of illness and heartache with one thing and another, I have found that when I sing it has got me through some really tough times. I have a couple of songs that I find have got me through some bad times and are truly inspirational.
The first one is called "You'll never walk along", it is from a musical called "carousel". I don't know if you are familiar with it but I can supply you with the words if you would like them.
The other one is a very beautiful song which was sung by the nun in the lovely musical called "The Sound of Music", which is called "Climb Every Mountain", because it is saying that you should strive to the highest point that you can until you find your dream, that one true wonderful thing in your life. You should not stop, until you have finally found what it is that you are looking for. I hope these two songs have helped you I know that they certainly have helped me on many occasions. I would like to also say I would like to be a follower of yours and invite you to be a follower of mine love from Beautybabe.
That's quite a list! Thanks for sharing and bringing this thread to life again!
