The Top Ten

1
Lose Yourself - Eminem
There is no way this song is 12 its way better than any of those songs up there listen to this rap its amazing those songs up there are crap and this song is awesome imagine how long it took em to write this song it ain't easy its harder than writing any of those crappy songs above this
Truly a master piece. Should be in Top 10 if not Top 5. The meaning and heart that Eminem put into the track is amazing. One of the Top 50 songs of all time in my opinion.
It is true
If you only have one chance to do something
Are you going to take it or leave it
[Newest]This song deserves the first place. The best song by Eminem. The lyrics are so great and the music is also awesome.

2Don't Stop Believin' - Journey
The message of this songs is to chase your dreams and do what you feel you have to. I on the other hand do what I want to.
This song has stood the test of time, and for a reason. This song has a lot of meaning, it's not just for someone looking for love. It also a song for someone wants to become successful in their dreams and their goal, whatever challenges you encounter along the way just don't stop believing.
Awesome song, deserves to be in number 1.

[Newest]Never stop believing. That's the name of the song. Enough said.

3You Raise Me Up - Josh Groban
The best in the world hey people you don't need to believe in God but God believes in you. This song is really important to me hope it is the same to you
When he sings, I feel a rush of strength in his interpretation. This is song signifies HOPE and trust in God. He will raise you up. It reminds us all that we are loved, and can lean on His strengths. He will not let us down.
Totally a rad song in every which way. Great voice, great lyrics, just great overall. This song should definitely be up higher on this list.
[Newest]It inspires people that God is faithful


4Earth Song - Michael Jackson
Amazing song, by a true legend. The music video is also brilliant. Such an awesome artist!
This song teaches us how to love and care for everything around us... Its beautiful and inspirin to be an be better to everything with come in contact with and stop destroying ourselves
This song is really touching, the first time I heard it I cried. It is truely a masterpiecein music. King of pop forever
[Newest]What more need be said? It's our only home, let's treat it like one.

5It's My Life - Bon Jovi
This song always makes you feel so exited about the life ahead of you.. To make it original.. To make this life memorable, when you look back at it!
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.
I love bon jovi, their every song is perfect
[Newest]My life, my way, my style...

6Imagine - John Lennon
I hope that this is the most inspiring song ever..
Imagine is an absolutely beautiful song, and I know it deserves to be at the top of this list. As always, John Lennon inspires so many people to be better, to help others, and this song is definitely inspirational.
Just imagine...
I play this song on my piano every time I see injustice and misery on the Television.
It really shows that if all the people just use their imagination and live for today this word will be what everyone imagines it to be.
[Newest]Imagine is the most inspirational in my opinion. John is encouraging peace in this song. No countries, no hell, no heaven, and no religion too. It deserves to be higher than 6, because the 5 before this one I've hardly heard in my life or never knew existed!

7I Believe I Can Fly - R. Kelly
This song is very inspirational to me..
I believe I can fly! I believe I can touch the sky! I can't remember the rest of the lyrics but I heard it in a spoof once.

RiverClanRocks

Really cheesy, but very inspirational.
[Newest]I believe I can't fly. *jumps out of building but lives* see?

8Beautiful - Christina Aguilera
I don't understand, why this songs in 82th grade, this it's so inspirational and I think it's perfect song to explain about woman in the worlds, should be in top ten
Obviously not the most inspirational song ever. Not by a long way. But it's nice to see this song so high up, it gets people to see their beauty for themselves. Plus she has a wicked voice which for the most part she doesn't use to her full potential and collaborates with Pitbull instead. :(
Christina such a amazing diva, and I can't understand why this song in 83th grade, it's most inspirational songs.. Linda perry writing this songs for TINa... It's greta song in earth
[Newest]This song builds inner strength

9In the End - Linkin Park
This song should definitely be in the top 10. The lyrical contend combined with incredible rap and rock makes this song a winner! If any of you have never heard this song, hurry over to Youtube or any other music source and hear it as soon as possible!
This is the most inspirational song ever. When I'am in depression this song help me, so please vote for it.
How is this not in the top 5?!
The lyrics are great, music is great
In short this is one of the greatest songs ever!
Hope it becomes at least No.5 if not number 1!
Guys listen to this! If it doesn't inspire you then go listen to Justin Beiber
[Newest]I love this song too

10Man In the Mirror - Michael Jackson
Should be number 1 Man in the mirror shows how selfish us human beings are "who am I to be blind pretending not to see their needs" we pretend not to see everything bad around us we hope that if we just egnour it it will go away but it doesn't it just gets worce. We need to stop relying on other people to make that change e. g government and others but begin with ourselves we really do need to take a leaf out of KING MICHAEL'S book and "TAKE A LOOK AT OURSELVES AND MAKE THAT CHANGE" XXXXX (Love U Michael your legacey will live on forever xxx)
This song is very inspirational. I've heard this song when I was young. It was popular in Thailand; although, I could not understand it at that time, I still remember to look up it up when I am older and learned English.

This song calls for a 'change' in the world - not just one country, not just one continent, but the whole world. Look up the official music video for this song. It shows many images of needed in Africa and it shows many clips of the heroes who had stood up for the population.

Michael Jackson songs are very inspirational. He's the legend!
We should not blame others for what is happening now. Sometimes it happens because of us. To achieve what we want in life, take a pause for a while and face the mirror. Realize everything, and you probably conclude that it all started of ourselves. Changes should start in ourselves... I am very much inspired of this song because a lot of people nowadays can't admit their faults. Acceptance is the best way to heal all worries in life. LOVE YOUR SELF FIRST BEFORE SOMEONE. TAKE A LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND ANALYZE THE INNER MESSAGE OF WHAT YOU WILL SEE IN IT.
[Newest]A song that teaches us to look at ourselves if we really want to make a difference in the world, sung by a Legend.

The Contenders

11The World's Greatest - R Kelly
When I hear this song it gives me a fantasy of me as king of the jungle! I love this song very much! It is AMAZING! And I hope you enjoy it to! This song makes me want to get up and dance! Enjoy! I -3 R Kelly
This song puts me in a good mood and pumps me up for just about anything!
This song is just so damn good I mean the lyrics have gotten me through some real tough times

12Eye of the Tiger - Survivor
Have you ever watched Rocky? , if you haven't... Then you have no idea how INSPIRATIONAL this song is. People please watch the movie Rocky Balboa then rate this song.
Most inspirational song ever, I don't why this song is not on the list
Why is this song not in the top ten?
[Newest]Subliminal message to fight

13Horizons - LTJ Bukem
I can feel this... love that song

14Kota - Bonobo

15Welcome to the Black Parade - My Chemical Romance
I think a lot of people judge MCR for being suicidal and emo without even taking the time to listen to the lyrics, cause if you do you will find out that what they are saying is quite the opposite to what everyone thinks. they want everybody to keep on fighting for their lives with everything you got
My Chemical Romance saves lives. They encourage their listeners to be who they want to be, regardless of what anyone else thinks. Gerard, Frank, Mikey, and Ray are my role models and some of the best people I know. Though they are disbanded, their music still continues to give strength and hope to those who find solace nowhere else. These boys are heroes, and I am proud to be a Killjoy. My Chemical Romance lives on in the hearts of everyone they touched. My Chemical Romance Forever.
No! Why is this song number 29? No offense to all you Journey fans, but Don't Stop Believin' is SO overrated! This song makes you feel ready to face the world. The last two minutes are so beautiful and uplifting you will want to cry. My Chemical Romance is not an emo band about suicide. It's songs are actually meant to help you find your worth and fight your inner demons. This should be number 1.
[Newest]Everything about My Chemical Romance is inspirational. I wouldn't be here without them.

16Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish - 1UP
Words from Apple's Steve Jobs "If today were the last day of my life, would I wanna do what I am about to do today... " incredible life changing words right there! LOVE IT
1up are slowly climbing up the ranks nowadays, this is their first track and its already gaining momentum... Wicked tune too
Just follow these words to be a success fellow.

17Heal the World - Michael Jackson
Heal the World
Make It A Better Place.
... There Are People Dying
But If you Care Enough For the Living
Make A Better Place For You and For Me
It is one of the best songs I ever heard by the best artist ever we sing this song everyday in our school
The first time I listened to the entire song I was tearing at the age of 5

18Hero - Mariah Carey
Truely inspirational, a beautiful song. Sung every year on September 11th.
Lyrics:
Theres a hero
If you look inside your heart
You don't have to be afraid
Of what you are

Chorus:
And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast you fears aside
And you know you can survive

So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you
There's a hero
If you look inside your heart
You don't have to be afraid
Of what you are

Chorus:
And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast you fears aside
And you know you can survive

So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you
... Tribute to Mariah Carey from INDIA
I love Mariah, when I first started listening to her I found most of her songs inspirational and heart felt, she is one amazing songwriter/singer and we are truely blessed to have someone like mariah to keep the faith and help us through her songs, Amen! <3
[Newest]Best song I ever heard

19Teenagers - My Chemical Romance
"The boys and girls in the clique, the awful names that they stick"
The one lyric that keeps me sane right now. Seriously, it's more powerful for a victim than you think

20All You Need Is Love - The Beatles
