3You Raise Me Up - Josh Groban
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.
I Love this don't! The version from the Voice is My Fave though, sorry Josh

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 is an amazing song and it puts the message out there about true sex I don't know
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.
Simply great message. This song is a great song to make this world a better place to live in and this world could use this right know. Ya
IF the world is going to be better it starts with us.
[Newest]Love the song. It has a great message that everyone should follow. With one little change in yourself you could change thousands of others on the way.

Oh my god I love this song--what a great way to think about the world! Change starts from within, and this song is a great reminder of the power our own perception has on our lives.

8What a Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong
It reminds me why this world is still a good place, and how beautiful it can be.

9I Gotta Feeling - Black Eyed Peas
This is a very good song to inspire
Great song I used to listen to it ages ago but they never show it on the radio anymore
Its a great song

10Walking On Sunshine - Katrina & The Waves

The Contenders

11Somewhere - Jackie Evancho
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.

12Born This Way - Lady Gaga
Awesome and has inspired me to do good things
A high energy song that shows that you need to be who you are regardless of what you are told!
This is a great song. It's telling people not to be afraid to be who they are because they were born that way.

13I Believe I Can Fly - R. Kelly
Its a awesome song

14Top of the World - The Carpenters
It's amazing that in the entire history of music, 13 of the 24 best songs with a positive message are by either Michael Jackson or KS Chithra - is there a certain level of bias here?
This song ALWAYS puts me in a good mood! I absolutely love it.

15Brave - Sara Bareilles
Love this song go peace building and no bullying
This song is life! It's helped me and a few friends out of a bullying problem. It taught us to stand up and be brave,

16Ooveru Pookalume - K.S. Chithra

17Where Is the Love? - The Black Eyed Peas
It's a great song that makes you see what is happening in the world.
Beautiful. I'm going to see if my chorus can sing this

18The Climb - Miley Cyrus

19Three Little Birds - Bob Marley
"Don't worry, bout a thing, cause every little thing is gonna be alright. "
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

20Every Flowers - K.S. Chithra
Chithra's this song is positive message to life
yes it is best because of chithra's expressions in this song
