3 Same 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

To be honest, I really hate this song. It's boring and none of the artists actually sound like they are putting any passion into this. But the message to the song is honestly really nice, making it deep and emotional way. This song itself is terrible, but the lyrics are really good. - ProPanda

It's a song with a good true meaning

4 You 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

Very powerful

7 Man 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.

This song is very awesome because I used it for a project

8 Somewhere - 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.

Jackie's performance of this song at the National Memorial Day Concert in 2014 was one of her most magnificent. Professional, confident and just the right tone for the solemn occasion. - BobG

Some where ill be singin this song eternally

When you can hold your own in a duo with Barbara Streisand, you know you're good.

12 Good Time - Owl City & Carly Rae Jepsen
13 Walking On Sunshine - Katrina & The Waves

Nothing beats a tune from the days when music industry still knew how to make melodies, catchy ones at that, without them being annoying. And how to actually put a message across, without it being all about flesh-flashing. And how to bring a smile upon one's lips, without them even realizing, if they are smiling about the song, or because of that happy, warm little feeling, that has started to flutter inside.

My wife & I listened to this a bunch of times on cassette player while driving to Canada for our honeymoon back in '85. We're still together & still love this song!

This songs is great. That's it that's all you need to know. It's so upbeat. IRS wonderful.

Very light headed pleasant song,

21 Three 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.

Meets the need when other songs don't

This gives a message that we should be happy.

Bob Marley, a poet and a prophet

29 Imagine - John Lennon

If there wasn't hunger, danger of depleting resources and overpopulation I would very much like if there were no country's, no religion, no hell and no heaven. Just people who belive in themselves and see the good before the bad. You may say that I'm a dreamer, but I'm sure I'm not the only one..

38 Top of the World - The Carpenters

This song ALWAYS puts me in a good mood! I absolutely love it.

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?

40 Greatest Love of All - Whitney Houston

This song is great!

41 Where Is the Love? - The Black Eyed Peas

It's sad to see the Black Eyed Peas has had a lot of bad hits like Dirty Bit, My Humps and Boom Boom Pow, which overshadows this amazing song. To this day, it is still relevant, discussing racism, terrorism, political mishaps among other topics. One of their best hits. - Swellow

It's a great song that makes you see what is happening in the world.

This song will be incredibly pertinent for a long time to come.

Perfect song for the Trump era. - allamassal

Reminds you of a beautiful place in your heart

46 Hall of Fame - The Script (Featuring Will.I.Am)

Is basic says you can do anything, not you will do anything. If you want to achieve something like get in the hall of fame, you have to work for it. you can't just get what you want because you want it is takes work and time. Most lines say “can” not “will”.

Its just Great what a brave Feeling You get with this Song...

This is a great positive song and great message

49 Try - Pink
50 Ill Mind of Hopsin 5 - Hopsin

Explains how modern Hip-Hop creates a bad image and negatively impacts the goals and priorities that its young listeners strive towards. It goes into detail about 3 situations that people get into, and comments on them with a "reality check" type of commentary. One of the few artists that speaks a true message without having to talk about money, drugs, or women.
