Is there one song that lifts you up every time you hear it?
Do you have a song that is YOUR song and no matter how you are feeling, it always makes you feel positive and uplifted?
Yup! I sing it all the time. I share it with a very Dearest Best Friend too. It is a camp song learned in scouting at a summer camp in W.VA. It is easily learned:
Oh way up in the sky,
the little bird flies,
good morning, good morning,
the little bird says . . .
I loved singing that a ways back. Walking up to the morning of workers readying for the day the 'b****' session would begin. And, then I would sing that song. Grin. And, then everyone would have a good laugh.
The cool part is we learned it as a tune then. Yet, I have heard it sung more ways than the sun shines . . .
Blue Bell Knoll by Cocteau Twins - it fills my heart every time I hear it and I don't understand a word she is singing - it's a sort of atmospheric album track, amazing song.
Yes, Somewhere over the Rainbow - Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwoʻole
Dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.
Oh, what a beautiful song!!! I must admit I find myself looking away from people when I listen to it, because my eyes start misting over. So much for being a tough guy. :0)
I heard it for the first time at the end of the movie "Meet Joe Black".
I do love this song, his music is so serene.
Ooh Child (Things are Gonna Get Easier) - The Five Stairsteps.
I don't know if it lifts my spirits but it's one of those songs that has always made me feel that no matter how dark a period in life feels; there will be better days to come.
Johnny b. Goode.
Every time I hear it, my foot starts tapping and I sing along. I think it is the beat and the familiarity of it.
Here Comes the Sun
Puffin' Biilly, an instrumental about a train, by British composer Edward White. It is the theme song from the Captain Kangaroo TV series from 1955 - 1974. Mary Rodgers wrote lyrics for the song after that, but I still like the original.
Smile written by Charlie Chaplin. Check YouTube the version by Glee Cast, also NicoleCountry Glee has a great version, although the Michael Jackson and of course Nat King Cole are the classic versions.
Charlie Chaplin was exiled from the United States. IF I remember he wrote the lyrics while he was exiled.
Ironic and important history and the song still gives me chills.
I like Michael Jackson's voice the best of all. Perhaps even more than my personal favorite voice Josh Groban.
Man in the mirror by Michael Jackson.. I love that song it always make me do things positively. Because the song said that if we want change it should always starts from ourselves.
Scream & Shout by Will.i.am and Brittany Spears. It has a great beat!
Well, truth be known, there are quite a few songs that have this effect on me.
1974 "Everlasting Love" - Carl Carlton
1973 "Kodachrome" - Paul Simon
1965 "Baby I'm Your's" - Barbara Lewis
Cat already mentioned "Ooh, Child", which gets me there as well. :0)
My Maria - Brooks And Dunn, It's pretty much my go to song.
Yes here is this one song
Dark Horses by Switch Foot. It has such an amaziing lyrics which always lifts me up when i feel low.
Domino - Jessie J - awesome to listen to up loud, and interesting to note when she is singing "I'm feeling sexy and free" - she was sitting with her foot propped up after breaking her ankle, recording the song not feeling sexy or free - but you'd never guess.
Man in the Mirror - Michael Jackson
And just recently - Same Love by Macklemore + Ryan Lewis (feat Mary Lambert) - if you haven't heard it - you need to.
Take Five by Dave Brubeck! I get so into the tune every time, even as old as the song is
"Laugh Maker" by Bump of Chicken. I smile whenever that song comes on and it automatically makes my day better.
On the Top of the World is one song I like and You Raise me up
Smiley Faces by Gnarls Barkley is the one for me! Always lifts my spirits and has some good lines in it
The Who singing the song of Teenage Wasteland although I don't think that's really the title.
I would have to say "Forever Young" by Rod Stewart. I love that song and can't help but dance and attempt to sing when I hear it, even in crowds. I feel sorry for the people around me, however.
"Viva la Vida" by coldplay. also, the only coldplay song on my mp3 player
With or Without You by U2. No matter how i'm feeling or what type of day i am having, this song always just mellows me out.
My favorite is " I marvel at the Wisdom of our God"
Oh I marvel at the wisdom of our God
when I see the little lilly lifting up the mighty sod,
oh I marvel at the wisdom of our God.
There are 10 or more verses and i only remember about 3, if any one has them all I would appreciate having them. thanks
yes... it's "Fixing my Broken Heart"
"You really where start (you really know where to start)
Fixing a broken heart
You really know what to do
Your emotional tools
Can cure any fool
Whose dreams have fallen apart?
Fixing a broken heart.."
----- I don't know but when I hear it, all I can think of is God... and how He always fixes my broken heart ( and it makes me feel sooooooooo goooood!!! ^^)
The song that lifts me is "I've had the time of my life". I love it.
Chris Tomlin -- I Will Follow, also WWE themes get my blood pumping for my workouts.
"Up Up And Away" always reminds me of when I was young and free in the 60's and took off in a big jet to move to LA. That song was playing on the plane and continued to play everywhere for a long time because it was so popular. I smile every time I hear it!
Hai am very happy to share my favorite song with you. One of the most beautiful song in Hindi hey mere watan ke logo is my favorite song that lifts you up my heart every time
'Don't you forget about me' by Simple Minds really makes my soul dance. It was featured in The Breakfast Club as well, which makes me love the song even more. It's very good, do give it a listen.
Being a Christian, I love Contemporary Gospel music, and the one song that I love everytime I hear it that stirs in my Spirit is "Word Of God Speak" by Casting Crowns. I can't help but join in singing, and I am flooded with joyous praise for our Lord and Savior when I hear and sing this song.
Actually is: Calvin Harris - Drinking From the Bottle (Feat. Tinie Tempah)

Can you think of a song that always moves you no matter how many times you hear it?I only ask as I have been listening to 'Friend of Ours' by Elbow; a very simple and beautiful song which always makes me feel melancholy and thoughtful.I suppose 'Everybody Hurts' by REM is a bit of an obvious...

I have done 5 surveys and everyone says that they think 3 is average but then I find out that the real average is twice a month. So if you can answer the question that would be great, not how much you think but how much you are!
