    Inspirational Songs

    Spunky had created a thread days ago in the Main Lounge called Sad songs .

    So with that in mind, I want to know what inspirational songs you enjoy listening to. What songs really cheer you up and motivate you?

    Here are some of my favorite inspirational songs:

    Rainbow Connection--The Muppets Movie
    Little Wonders--Meet The Robinsons
    Man In Black--Johnny Cash
    Battle Hymn Of The Republic--Julia Ward Howe
    What a Wonderful World--Louis Armstrong
    Smile--Composed by Charlie Chaplin, lyrics by John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons.

    Here are the lyrics to Smile:

    Smile though your heart is aching
    Smile even though itís breaking
    When there are clouds in the sky, youíll get by
    If you smile through your fear and sorrow
    Smile and maybe tomorrow
    Youíll see the sun come shining through for you
    Light up your face with gladness
    Hide every trace of sadness
    Although a tear may be ever so near
    Thatís the time you must keep on trying

    Smile, what's the use of crying?
    You'll find that life is still worthwhile
    If you just smile


    <instrumental interlude>

    That's the time you must keep on trying
    Smile, what's the use of crying?
    You'll find that life is still worthwhile
    If you just smile

    Re: Inspirational Songs

    The song by P.O.D., the one that says, "I feel so alive, for the very first time."

    I know its a religous song, and I'm not that religous, but it always inspires me when I hear it.

    You must be talking about their song, "Alive" Spunky .

    OH! I also like the current hit song, "Unwritten," by Natasha Bedingfield.

    Re: Inspirational Songs

    Josh Groban's version of "You Raise Me Up". He went to court to get permission from the writers to take out a verse he felt was too religious, as he thought the song should be about anyone who lifts you up or raises you up, not just Jesus. He recorded it this way and it became a huge hit, bigger than any previous version.

    When I am down and , oh my soul, so weary
    When troubles come and my heart burdened be
    Then I am still and wait here in the silence
    Until you come and sit awhile with me

    You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
    You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas
    I am strong, when I am on your shoulders
    You raise me up, to more than I can be

    (repeat)
    Press today is so concerned with cool vs. not cool that they're starting to forget good vs. bad. I'm not sure I'll ever be "cool", but I will always tirelessly strive to be "great". - Josh Groban

    Re: Inspirational Songs

    I also think Josh's song "You Are Loved" is very inspirational, reminding people that no matter how their life is, they are loved and that they shouldn't give up.

    Don't give up
    It's just the weight of the world
    When your heart's heavy
    I, I will lift it for you

    Don't give up
    Because you want to be heard
    If silence keeps you
    I. I will break it for you

    Everybody wants to be understood
    Well I can hear you
    Everybody wants to be loved
    Don't give up
    Because you are loved

    Don't give up
    It's just the hurt that you hide
    When you're lost inside
    I'll be there to find you

    Don't give up
    Because you want to burn bright
    If darkness blinds you
    I. I will shine to guide you

    Everybody wants to be understood
    Well I can hear you
    Everybody wants to be loved
    Don't give up
    Because you are loved (you are loved)

    You are loved (you are loved)
    Don't give up (don't give up)
    It's just the weight of the world (you are loved)
    Don't give up (don't give up)
    Everyone needs to be heard (don't give up)
    You are loved (you are loved)
    Press today is so concerned with cool vs. not cool that they're starting to forget good vs. bad. I'm not sure I'll ever be "cool", but I will always tirelessly strive to be "great". - Josh Groban

    Re: Inspirational Songs

    I'll Stand by You always gets me. It makes me feel stronger and I can't NOT sing it when I hear it...loudly. It's awful!!

    The Pretenders, I'll Stand by You

    Oh, why you look so sad?
    Tears are in your eyes
    Come on and come to me now
    Dont be ashamed to cry
    Let me see you through
    cause Ive seen the dark side too
    When the night falls on you
    You dont know what to do
    Nothing you confess
    Could make me love you less

    Ill stand by you
    Ill stand by you
    Wont let nobody hurt you
    Ill stand by you

    So if youre mad, get mad
    Dont hold it all inside
    Come on and talk to me now
    Hey, what you got to hide?
    I get angry too
    Well Im a lot like you
    When youre standing at the crossroads
    And dont know which path to choose
    Let me come along
    cause even if youre wrong
    Ill stand by you
    Ill stand by you
    Wont let nobody hurt you
    Ill stand by you
    Take me in, into your darkest hour
    And Ill never desert you
    Ill stand by you
    And when
    When the night falls on you, baby
    Youre feeling all alone
    You wont be on your own

    Ill stand by you
    Ill stand by you
    Wont let nobody hurt you
    Ill stand by you
    Take me in, into your darkest hour
    And Ill never desert you
    Ill stand by you
    Ill stand by you
    Wont let nobody hurt you
    Ill stand by you
    Wont let nobody hurt you
    Ill stand by you

    I love that song too! What a great one. The whole "Font" album is awesome. I especially like Helvetica and Ariel. Though Chicago is a good one too. Though sometimes, I like to kick back with some good ol' Franklin Gothic Medium and just relax.

    Turd. I went through a lot of trouble to edit that damn post. I thought, Whew! no one saw that mess, except maybe Jazzman, and he's way too nice to point that out.
