All time inspirational song! I get goosebumps and tear up when I hear this song. It reminds me that God is ever faithful and is near. He has a plan to prosper my life and help me to become all I was meant to be.
I totally agree, this man, his amazing voice, and the uplifting messages in all his lyrics blow my mind and seep into the depths of my soul. I would also add You Are Loved to this playlist, again by Mr Groban, to Love and be Loved being essential to our wellbeing.

4Same Love - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
This song is so inspiring and sends a great message. People shouldn't be frowned upon for who they love, this doesn't make them any less than their peers. We are all humans, and we all deserve equal rights.

This song is so pertinent to today. The message is true and well felt with thought involved. This is a song that has lasting power and should be in the top percentage of inspirational songs.

5Man In the Mirror - Michael Jackson
I think this song never got it's full just due for it's message. It should be a classic and maybe it will be. Simple, pure and he's some what of a prophet but... I don't know why it isn't a signature.

IF the world is going to be better it starts with us.

During the "National memorial Day Concert" 2014 at the US Capitol in front of 300,000 people, Miss Evancho took this well-worn tune from "West Side Story" and re-purposed it as a beacon of hope for injured veterans. Truly an amazing positive message.

A wonderful sentiment. Hard to put into practice though.
I admit no one ever got too far just worrying - but isn't that the first step to noticing something is amiss and may need some attention?
The other half of this song is it's simplicity and good vibe musically - which lull us into agreement with the Bob. Oh yes - and then there's Bob. His life is also a testiment to this song. but he was pro active in creating change.
This gives a message that we should be happy.
Meets the need when other songs don't
