Top Ten Most Inspirational Songs of All Time


The Top TenXW

1Lose 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

This song is the greatest song ever!

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.

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.

God is always there no matter what!

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

It makes me feel carpe diem

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.

This is such a beautiful song there is no way Eminem is better than this. I really do feel like vomiting up moms (well when I was still living with my mother) spaghetti. This should be #1. - Arnoldlayne

10Welcome 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.

Reminds me of my happy childhood

13Man 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.

A song that teaches us to look at ourselves if we really want to make a difference in the world, sung by a Legend.

18Hero - Mariah Carey

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

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

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

Greatest Song Of All! No song tops this inspiring chart-topper
