Top Ten Most Empowering Songs

We all know that one song we listen to to remind ourselves that we are worth something, but there's a plethora of positivity that you may not know about.

The Top TenXW

1Born This Way - Lady Gaga

This song takes the crown as it is an empowering message being delivered stating, "I was born this way and I can't change that" and that's perfect for our topic.

2Third Eye - Florence + the Machine

Lesser-known, but still delivers a load of conviction with Florence reminding the listeners that "they are flesh and blood and they deserved to be loved and they deserve what they are given" in a near-shout tone.

3Firework - Katy Perry

Nearly everyone's heard this ode to self-appreciation and it definitely deserves its spot on this list.

4F**kin' Perfect - P!NK

This song takes the crown for most powerful music video on this list.

5Mean - Taylor Swift

Although this one doesn't directly tell the listener about their worth, this one gives them something to sing to when they are bullied to work on that esteem.

6Fight Song - Rachel Platten

If this is your fight song you are going to lose.

Need I explain this? The title does it for me.

7Empire - of Monsters and Men

Although this song requires more decryption, it does remind the listener that "from the rain comes a river running wild that will create an empire for you", or "your individuality will give you an invincible empire on its own."

8Beautiful - Christina Aguilera

This heart-wrencher is perfect for this list as the Dirty Genie in a Bottle takes a piece of her heart and offers it to us through the haunting chorus.

9Try - Colbie Caillat

"You don't have to try so hard" is the phrase constantly being thrust upon us in this song about loving yourself for who you are not what others want you to be.

10She Keeps Me Warm - Mary Lambert

This beauty of a ballad represents the LGBT+ community with the resilient phrase, "I can't change even if I tried," that has become a battle cry for pro-same-sex marriage advocates.

The Contenders

11You Only Live Once - Suicide Silence
12Mouth for War - Pantera

Was this list made for 12 year-old girls? Seriously? I might as well vote this one to hopefully give someone hope in humanity.
