Top Ten Most Inspirational Songs of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Lose Yourself - Eminem Lose Yourself - Eminem Cover Art

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

Best rap/motivational song ever most of the songs in this list have same line repeating again and again but lose yourself is just different instead of making you feel like some superhero it is the song that tells you the reality and grab that opportunity but I really felt bad when I found that not afraid is not in top 10 it also deserved top 10(at least)

2 Don't Stop Believin' - Journey Don't Stop Believin' - Journey Cover Art

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.

This is the song you want to hear after anything great happens or something great is about to happen this song is the most inspiring song ever. although Lose Yourself is without a doubt my favorite song ever, this one beats it in every way when it comes to inspiration.

3 It's My Life - Bon Jovi It's My Life - Bon Jovi Cover Art

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

Flying down the highway, 100 miles an hour
It's Now Or Never, Now Or Never, Now Or Never.
Do I care what other people do try or say to stop me? No, because It's My Life..

Thanks Jon for this amazing song

4 You Raise Me Up - Josh Groban You Raise Me Up - Josh Groban Cover Art

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.

This is the most emotional song I've ever heard. The music is so gentle, so perfect. Josh Groban's deep voice flows to well with its tune. It's got a beautiful meaning. Mesmerizing.

"You raise me up so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas
I am strong when I'm on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be"

5 Eye of the Tiger - Survivor Eye of the Tiger - Survivor Cover Art

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?

What the Hell! The greatest song of all time is on no.12 you people don't know what's the song about so if you want to know just watch the one of the greatest movie of all time...ROCKY 3...And also watch all parts from 1-6 and Creed also...Then you will understand that this song is a masterpeice and this song deserves the number 1 place in this list and also the top 10 most inspirational songs of all time.

6 I Believe I Can Fly - R. Kelly I Believe I Can Fly - R. Kelly Cover Art

This song is very inspirational to me..

That's a cool song

Bery cute its so awesome song

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.

7 Welcome to the Black Parade - My Chemical Romance Welcome to the Black Parade - My Chemical Romance Cover Art

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.

This is my favorite song ever let alone this list! This song means so much, and the true meaning of the word inspire is clearly shown. I'm in love with this song, and the band, and I was incredibly sad when My Chemical Romance broke up. Really listen to and think about the words of the song, then will you be able to decide whether it inspires you.R.I.P. my Chemical Romance

8 Hall of Fame - The Script Hall of Fame - The Script Cover Art

You can be the greatest, you can be the best. What's inspirational, if this song isn't? What's more, my favorite inspirational quote comes from Hall of Fame: "You can walk straight through HELL with a SMILE." It's also really catchy.

The song for me, is the most inspirational song I have ever heard. As I am in a wheelchair, I feel a strong connection to these lyrics and the meaning behind them certainly does help me and want to strive in making something of myself

Are guys idiots to not vote for this song it's the best ever of its kind ever made much better than lose yourself in my opinion! Yeah you could be the greatest! Yo can be a master don't wait for luck!

It's not just catchy, the lyrics can open up your whole life to a new level which inspires you on how you can find your true dedicated self. Makes you feel like you can be the greatest person who's ever lived. Wow. Very Inspiring Song. This should be shown to the whole world.

9 The World's Greatest - R Kelly The World's Greatest - R Kelly Cover Art

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!

Anytime I listen to this song it gives me hoe to do more is AMAZING song

This song is just so damn good I mean the lyrics have gotten me through some real tough times

10 Earth Song - Michael Jackson Earth Song - Michael Jackson Cover Art

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

It's a really good song along with a really beautiful message of contributing to the earth

The Contenders

11 Man in the Mirror - Michael Jackson Man in the Mirror - Michael Jackson Cover Art

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!

This song should make you see that if you choose to your can make a difference in the world we all share.

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.

12 Beautiful - Christina Aguilera Beautiful - Christina Aguilera Cover Art

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

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

Christina explain nobody ugly, like a piece of lyrics "you are beautiful, no matter what they say"
I really love this song... Vote for this song

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. :(

13 Imagine - John Lennon Imagine - John Lennon Cover Art

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.

A song for everyone, Perhaps the best lyrics ever Magnificent! Hope and Imagination, is something everyone needs to persevere.

14 Try - Pink Try - Pink Cover Art

To me this song means that you shouldn't give up after a few fails, You should always try your hardest and keep going on and trying NO MATTER WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY

Makes people to get up on their feet to make the wrongs right love the lyrics 8)

I know that a lot of people put shame to this being said, but music saves lives. As "sufferer" of MDD, there have been to many nights where I have almost done things so very regretable. Too many of these nights I began to play music to calm myself, and Pink would come on, playing with her passionate voice ringing. So yes, music saved my life.

Love this song, so inspirational and amazing.

15 Livin' on a Prayer - Bon Jovi Livin' on a Prayer - Bon Jovi Cover Art

What makes this song so amazing is the amount of soul and spirit they put into it. It makes me feel as if everyone in the world is with you in your struggles, and makes you believe. It is simply AWESOME.

Such an amazing song. I like how its upbeat yet still inspiring and not too obnoxious. I love this some. :D It should definitely be higher on the list.

This song saved my life when I was 13. You gotta hold on, ready or not; you live for the fight when that's all that you've got.

WHY? What is wrong with you people, this is one the best songs ever! No matter how overplayed it is, I will always love it! It is so upbeat and inspirational(cliche, right? but it's true...). It makes you think that everyone is on your side, even those brats that you don't like). It is like the glue to humanity, and definitely should be way up on this list! Please vote.

16 Born This Way - Lady Gaga Born This Way - Lady Gaga Cover Art

This should really be in the top 5... This list is so stupid!

Best song that fights prejudice and ignorance! Truly inspirational.

To me this song mans that so what I am who I am and you are who you are

Greatest Song, teaches you to love yourself and believe in yourself.
it can be said that this is the modern version of 'Greatest Love Of All by Whitney Houston'

17 Teenagers - My Chemical Romance Teenagers - My Chemical Romance Cover Art

I don't get it, why?

The song has a catchy rune but very good lyrics. It is inspirational and people needto listen to more by the artist

My Chemical Romance is a good band but this song is amazing but
its about having a fear of teens

18 We are the Champions - Queen We are the Champions - Queen Cover Art

Researches proved this as the Most Inspirational Song ever made...

Beautiful song and Freddie so sorry that you are gone I hope this song will touch peoples lives 20 years down the road it was a struggle but you proved that if you believe in yourselves you can over come anything rip Freddie Mac we will never forget you song or what you believe in your life

Freddie Mercury said- "I wanted to write a winning song. Something people would sing at football games or something." Not those exact words but I believe he went out and did exactly that. This song should have more votes shouldn't it!

I usually don't go on rants about how songs should be upper/lower on the list, but this is an exception. HOW IS THAT AWFUL DON'T STOP BELIEVING SONG #2 AND THIS #28?! This song is the ANTHEM of all sporting events! It gets you hyped up! THIS is a REAL inspirational song! Should be #1 or #2 (Would be OK with Lose Yourself being #1.)

19 Firework - Katy Perry Firework - Katy Perry Cover Art

This song has gotten me through EVERYTHING. It reminded me to always look ahead and that I'll always be a firework and it taught me that suicide isn't right.

Tells me who I can and could be

Right now, all I want to do is write a novel. This song makes me belive that dream is REAL - that there is a spark in all of us, and we just have to find a way to ignite it!

I can't believe this is only top 41!

20 All You Need is Love - The Beatles All You Need is Love - The Beatles Cover Art

R u crazy this is one of the best songs of all time and band

Seriously this should be in top 10

Best band ever, one of their best.

It's a Beatles song.

21 Skyscraper - Demi Lovato Skyscraper - Demi Lovato Cover Art

This song is saved many teenagers life.. This song deserves to be number 1

I went to one of Demi's shows on the Neon Lights Tour, and she said the most heart~melting, inspirational, thing. Even thinking about it makes me tear up. OK. She said, "Iv'e had people come up to me on the street, and tell me that I saved their lives. But as amazing as that sounds, and as amazing as that feels, my response is that, "You saved your own life.""

This song literally saved me, it has such an inspirational message with it. I'm so proud of how far she's come such a inspiration

This song is really powerful and amazing as same as Demi. She is amazing, she is strong, she is my hero.

22 Heal the World - Michael Jackson Heal the World - Michael Jackson Cover Art

Heal the World

One of the best songs in the world...

23 Common People - Pulp Common People - Pulp Cover Art
24 Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You) - Kelly Clarkson Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You) - Kelly Clarkson Cover Art

When I have had a terrible day- this song reminds me of the most important things in life. It lets the world know you can't be knocked down. " Sticks and Stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me."

This has to top the list!

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger!

This song is so amazing and it is so catchy I get it stuck In my head just by thinking about it. I can't help but "stand a little taller" when I hear the chorus.

25 We Are the World - Michael Jackson

Why is this masterpiece so far in the list? Should be in the top 3 with heal the world and imagine.
It's just the mix of a lot of superstars together for a cause. It's inspirational because of the lyrics and the fundraising purpose of it.

Should be number one. Period.

I love this song. it should be at the first
