The Contenders: Page 2

21 Livin' on a Prayer - Bon Jovi

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.

31 Get a Move On! - Mr. Scruff
32 Skyscraper - Demi Lovato

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 is the most beautiful song from Demi Lovato. In case you didn't know, she suffers from a bipolar disorder and the first time she attempted suicide was at 11 years of age. This song's lyrics are so beautiful. These lyrics make me feel so sad, but they empower me so much. I love the line: All my windows still are broken, but I'm standing on my feet and I am closer to the clouds up here. It is one of the most beautiful songs ever. Here is the song:

Verse 1:
Skies are crying, I am watching
Catching tear drops in my hands
Only silence as it's ending
Like we never had a chance
Do you have to make me feel like there's nothing left of me?

You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I'm made of glass
Like I'm made of paper
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper

Verse 2:
As the smoke clears
I awaken and untangle you from me
Would it ...more

33 Porcelain - Moby

Yeah, it's so great. A sad song, but it generates a mood you can't quite put your finger on, making you feel good to feel bad. I love Moby's work! - PositronWildhawk

It inspires me to bellyflop on porcelain. - AlphaQ

34 'Till I Collapse - Eminem

It should be umber 2. Bon jovi isn't inspirational at all... WHO IS LISTENING BON JOVI WHILE TRAINING?

This song should be either number one or number two with lose yourself

This one got me through high school exams haha

Inspires me to pull s*** out of myself - CHECK
Inspires me to diss other rappers - CHECK
Inspires me to say "YOU GOT A F***** PROBLEM WITH ME" to someone

And what was that about the press having a wet dream?!

35 What a Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong

Helps me to realise what the things we have and stops me thinking about the things I want. Also it helps you to think about peace and people getting along side tracking you from anger and violence as Louis go it right there is too much anger and violence on the world, he says how people take care of each other for no profit or how friends stay friends not becoming enemies.

There is a tenderness in the way this song speaks of our world and a reminder to look beneath the general appearances to the love. (Friends shaking hands saying how-do-you-do, they're really saying I Love You)

This song reminds that life is precious, and there are so many good things to live and be thankful for, it also inspires me to recycle more

One of the best song ever written.. !

37 Same Love - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
38 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.

I love this song. it should be at the first

39 Fade to Black - Metallica

No song in history is this amazingly beautiful. Its quite obvious that God himself created it. - uZi91

I know why people are not voting it high as one of the most inspirational songs, because it is not a song but a beautiful poem like one before, and nothing else matters...

can believe this song is so high, people obviously know there stuff, ill never forget listening to this song at my first metallica concert

Way better than My Chemical Romance emo trash. - Brobusky
