Top 10 Most Inspirational Songs of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Lose Yourself - Eminem

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

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!

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...

2 Don't Stop Believin' - Journey

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!

Don't Stop Believin' is our generations Some Nights which was my grandparents generation's December, 1963. The importance of this song is the fact that it consistently motivates me not to kill my friends and family.

3 You Raise Me Up - Josh Groban

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.

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"

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.

4 It's My Life - Bon Jovi

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.

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!

A song about grabbing life by the damn horns and wrestling with it until it does what you bloody want it to. Deserves to spot.

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

5 Imagine - John Lennon

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.

This song is truly beautiful! This song shares with the world that we don't have to fight with one another because it doesn't matter what we believe in, or what we look like we are all the same!

This is such a beautiful song there is no way Eminem is better than this. I really do feel like vomiting up moms (well when I was still living with my mother) spaghetti. This should be #1.

6 Earth Song - Michael Jackson

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.

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...

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

7 I Believe I Can Fly - R. Kelly

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.

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

This song is very inspirational to me..

8 Welcome to the Black Parade - My Chemical Romance

Besides Lose Yourself all the songs ahead have a somewhat cartoonish element to them makes them hard to take seriously. Not saying they are bad but Welcome to the Black Parade just fits better for me at least.

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.

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.

9 Hall of Fame - The Script

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 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

10 Man in the Mirror - Michael Jackson

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!

All of our problems would be fixed. If everyone did their part, instead of hoping the next guy deals with it. Ether it be Something Small like our Picking Up our Trash or something bigger. That's the message being passed on by the song. A great message

One of the greatest songs EVER! Love you Michael the world needs to hear this! This should be number one for sure. Gives me goosebumps without a fail, every time. Check that man/woman in the mirror, and make that change..

This shows that how well fame can be used, he used to make at least a small difference in the world and made people think. That's what songs should, it should make people aware of whats happening. you don't have make songs about random crap, songwriters like therse are legends

The Contenders
11 The World's Greatest - 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 hope to do more. It's an AMAZING song.

This song wakes me up everyday.

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

12 Beautiful - Christina Aguilera

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.

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. :(

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!

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 Eye of the Tiger - Survivor

The fact that this song isn't number 1 just irritates me. When I was going to look at the top ten best inspirational songs list I expected this song to be number 1. I don't know why its 13, but opinions are opinions.

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!

14 Dream On - Aerosmith

This song is easily one of the most motivational songs ever! Deserves to be much higher on this list..

The perfect power ballad : very inspirational. Amazing song.

This is so inspirational I love this list and I love aerosmith I wish I could see them in concert

SHOULD BE IN TOP 10... Dream until your dreams come true:)
Sing for the moment... sing for the laughter... sing for the tear...

15 Try - Pink

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.

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

This song helped me a lot and the way pink rings this such passion... Just wow <3 you just gotta get up and try

16 Not Afraid - Eminem

Awesome song about life and how to deal with it, its about how never to lose faith in yourseld and to keep on moving forward and to never give up!

Got me pumped up!

It tells you to not care about what others think about U.. Also an awesome rap

17 Born This Way - Lady Gaga

Best song that fights prejudice and ignorance! Truly inspirational.

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

I love this song. It should be on number 1.

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

18 Firework - Katy Perry

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!

This is one of Katy Perry's inspirational songs.

I can't believe this is only top 41!

19 In the End - Linkin Park

This song should definitely be in the top 10. The lyrical contend combined with incredible rap and rock makes this song a winner! If any of you have never heard this song, hurry over to YouTube or any other music source and hear it as soon as possible!

I LOVE THIS SONG! it teaches an important lesson... we're all gonna die eventually! This is one of the most important lessons a person can learn. But it also tells us to do what we can while we're alive. To try our hardest, make our mark and show everyone that we are here!

What!?!? I can't believe this song isn't in the Top Ten List! It definitely deserves to be in the top 5 at least! This is a masterpiece! You get a rush of energy and sadness as well when you listen to this!

Whenever something bad happens, whenever you fail at something. Just play this song. I love songs that speak the truth, and this is totally one of those songs.

20 Livin' on a Prayer - Bon Jovi

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.

21 Hero - Mariah Carey

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.

It's Mariah and it's Hero. You don't even have to know/like either to know the lyrics of this song.

Easily the most inspirational song ever, and of Mariah's signature songs.

22 Skyscraper - Demi Lovato

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.

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.

23 All You Need is Love - The Beatles

Best band ever, one of their best.

They put the wrong cover art...

All you need is love.

It's a Beatles song.

24 Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You) - Kelly Clarkson

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 Teenagers - My Chemical Romance

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

I don't get it, why?
