21 Hero - 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!

Her vocal talent is undeniable significant and the lyrics, have saved lives, so many people wouldn't have lived without this song, it can not be overlooked.

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.. !

38 Alive - Pearl Jam
39 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

40 One Moment in Time - Whitney Houston

This song is very inspirational, but most of Ms. Whitney Houston songs are. Her voice is a gift from God. I found her most top five inspirational songs are The Greatest Love of All, Miracle, Nothing but love, I Look To You, and my personal favorite I Didn't Know My Own Strength. Rip Ms. Whitney Houston.

Every time I hear this song, I feel like crossing the finish line at the Olympics.

Should b rated much higher!

This brings me t mymind with my husbun
