My 6 Favorite Inspirational Songs

Posted on June 15, 2013

If you really listen to the lyrics of most of the songs on the radio, you’ll notice how they’re either about something stupid (anything about money, cars, etc), or about falling in love or breaking up. There aren’t very many Top 40 songs that are meant to inspire you to be great from within yourself like Firework by Katy Perry or I Believe I Can Fly by R. Kelly. So here are some other songs that pump me up, even if they are meant to be love songs. These are songs that I’ve found get stuck in my head when I need the most inspiration and remember things like…anything could happen.

Here are some songs on my ‘Happy Songs’ playlist that get me excited about doing something great with my life! (In no particular order) Plus, don’t forget to look at the awesome tip to find other playlists at the bottom!

  • Feel So Close by Calvin Harris

  • Anything Could Happen by Ellie Goulding

  • Sittin on Top of the World by Brandy and Mase

  • Isn’t She Lovely by Stevie Wonder

  • You Are The Best Thing by Ray LaMontagne

  • Million Dollar Bill by Whitney Houston has made my dreams come true! I posted a couple of years ago on social media that I wish Pandora let you just say what mood you were in rather than having to pick an artist. Songza does just that! They also have apps for Android and iPhone.

What are your favorite songs that inspire you to do great things with your life?
