Top Ten Most Inspirational Songs of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Lose Yourself - Eminem Lose Yourself - Eminem Cover Art

Really... This song is the best motivational song ever... When I face a little failure I use to listen this song on my Sony Walkman.. And I try and try till I succeed in my will... It doesn't matters how many times you fall, but it matters how many times you stand up.. Another song... "Radio Active"- Imagine Dragons is the same motivational song like this hit one... Must listen to that one... It every time hit hard.

This songs lyrics have so much meaning. Everything in this song makes sense and means something. It sends out a great message, and that's without saying how good the song actually is. It's my favourite song and has been for ages. Unlike a lot of rap songs these days it is actually about something, and in this case, it's about never giving up

You've only got one shot do not miss a chance to blow this opportunity comes once in a lifetime... Such inspiring words... This song kept me going inspite of failures... Especially while preparing for the exams and a lot more... This legendary song increased my confidence, my ability to concentrate and what not... Certainly this song deserves to be number 1...

I don't really like rap, but I do like Eminem, and I love this song. This is THE inspirational song. Totally deserves to be number one.

As for Don't Stop Believing being number 2, give me a break. I don't know what's so god damn special about Journey. They're the cheesiest band ever. Get a clue people! Journey sucks!

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

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.

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.

Best sing by the best inspirational band! Journey is awesome, and this song is even better! Every time I listen to it it is impossible to not sing along, and I get up and go do something. Don't stop believin' that this will be #1!

Everyone won't just recognise soon as the chorus comes up despite them never hearing it, they'll love it. by the way, I first heard this song in a try not to laugh challenge. As much as I love Eminem, this song is incredibly lively and motivating

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

The best band in history I've been listening to them since I was born and I'm now twelve I have every album and all of richies signature guitars I also have tico torres signature drum sticks I love them as one and as a whole which is why I'm voting for this song because "ITS MY LIFE! "

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.

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

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!

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

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"

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.

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

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.

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

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.

R. Kelly believed he could fly, and also that he could urinate on underage women. Both would work out equally poorly.

So inspiring! It tells you, you can do anything if you believe you can do it

Really, you think THIS is an inspirational song! You can't fly!

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

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.

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.

This song has cemented it's place as one of the most inspirational songs of all time. While it might not be number one, it gets my vote because it should not be at 31. Top 10 at least!

How is this not #1? Don't stop believin is good and is by my favorite band Journey. But this is 10x more inspirational.

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

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.

Seriously? What's so inspirational about "In the End" by Linking Park? Geez, it's a decent song, but just listen to these lyrics:
"One thing - I don't know why. It doesn't even matter how hard you try. "
And
"I tried so hard and got so far. But in the end, it DOESN'T EVEN MATTER. "
Ew. I like the lyrics, but they are the opposite of inspirational. The Black Parade on the other hand is about pulling through tough times and fighting your inner demons. It's an AMAZING song. (=

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.

I first heard this song in the car and it touched me so deeply I had to pull over and let thr power and emotion take me over. By the time it got to the crescendo of Gerard triumphantly belting "we'll carry on" I was in tears. These were not sad tears though, these were the tears of relizing that I could make it I could survive and no matter what obsticles were in my path, I would carry on. This song did not save my life, it gave me the strength to save myself.

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

This the most inspirational song for me.
You can beat the world
You can beat the war
You can talk to God, go banging on his door
These lyrics and the reality hidden underneath these words help me to endure all the criticism and gives me a feeling that one day I can sit in a hall of fame. This song must be in top 10 at least.

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.

You can only achieve a full purpose when everyone stand under the same roof for the same purpose.It doesn't matter what sex,religion,color,or shape you are life is there for everybody and this songs gives you the inspiration and motivation this song made history for an epic moment of life.Stop thinking about anything that isn't making you who you are just live the present look back to be a better future and look ahead to know how great you will be.

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.

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

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

I think the words are just amazing even when I sing it, it makes me feel that the world is not doing enough to stop all the bad in the world and I feel guilty about everything we take for granted. You are a legend MJ whatever happens in the music industry. The way you touch me with your sweet words makes me feel special. Vote for this song! R.I.P King of Pop forever...

So amazing, makes you really think about the world and its problems and how we can fix them. It's an eye opener and brings you to tears. Incredibly influential. Beautiful song, inspirational meaning written by the greatest artist the world has ever known.

First time that I heard this song I noticed nothing else around me. This song captures the listener the way that no other song before or after can. Hearing this song was one of the greatest experiences in my life. Thank you, Michael.

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

The Contenders

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

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!

16th?!?! This is undoubtedly one of the most if not THE most inspirational songs of all time! This song absolutely is TIMELESS! There are so many things happening in our world in this day and age and Michael says it all: if you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make the change.
And besides you guys, "it's gonna feel real good! JAMON! "

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 ($ you Michael your legacey will live on forever xxx)

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 can't imagine anyone else singing this. The way she sing sings it, Gives me chills every time guaranteed. My eyes get watery every time I hear it. Because soicety tell us this, but it also tells us to get surgery and work done. Because no one will like or love us if we look natural.

It's a timeless song.
It pretty much says that everyone's beautiful in their own way no matter what people say. I know that this sounds cliched, but if you listen to this song you'll understand why it's still numero uno after all these years!

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

13 Imagine - John Lennon Imagine - John Lennon Cover Art

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

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.

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!

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.

14 Try - Pink Try - Pink Cover Art

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.

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

Love this song, so inspirational and amazing.

This song makes me feel like I can do anything! you just gotta try

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

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.

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.

Seeing this song so far down on the list, even below the whiney bull called Ghosts'n'stuff (sounds inspirational, huh? "Ghosts'n'stuff? Yep, I now feel like I could conquer the world. ) makes me sick. This tune is one of the true masterpieces in music.

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.

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

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'

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

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

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

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

I don't get it, why?

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

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!

Whenever I hear this, I remember my school play. It was the one song where everyone was on stage at the same time and the song where everyone sung with enthusiasum. It inspirational to me because it makes me happy.

How is we are the champions inspirational if anything it gives you a false sense of winning

This song is so cool it's telling you that you're the champion no matter what happens

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.

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 love this song is so inspirational and so amazing, way more inspirational that Taylor swift

This song means that you can do anything you wish to do in your life

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.

They put the wrong cover art...

21 Skyscraper - Demi Lovato Skyscraper - Demi Lovato Cover Art

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.""

It is one of the most inspiring songs ever, it makes me feel like I can do anything!
It's just a shame not many people have heard it, otherwis it would have gone straight to no. 1

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 is INSPIRATION in bold letters. It tells you that no one can break you down and you can rise above. I love you DEMI
-Charlie Lyric

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

Heal the world the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me and the entire human race.
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for u and for me. This should be number two after earth song and before man in the mirror.

The first time I listened to the entire song I was tearing at the age of 5

So awesome it made me cry... Love this song, really its too good.

I love this inspirational song it makes me feel good

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 is like one of those songs that you hear and just know you gotta stand up and fight back and not give up. I literally stood up for myself after listening to it. Should be in the top 10s

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.

Helps you realise what the human body can undertake such as a man falling 35,000 feet an surviving after his parashote failed when he went skydiving. He is now a lot stronger.

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
