What lifts you up? What motivates you? What gives you that extra skip in your step? What resonates deep within you? What keepings you moving forward in your life? I’m sure we all have certain songs that lift us from the depths of our despairs, or even just puts us in a good mood! I have plenty in terms of happiness, life inspiring, moving, and even songs that speak true to faith and christianity (but take it as you believe it)!
Recently, Lifehouse released their new single “Flight” which is awe-inspiring. Their lyrics are profound and echo with meaning and emotion.
Flight – Lifehouse
Other life-inspiring songs I listen to daily:
It’s My Life – Bon Jovi
Here I Am – Bryan Adams
Circle of Life – Elton John
Lose Yourself – Eminem
All In – Lifehouse
Gotta Be Tonight – Lifehouse
If Today was your Last Day – Nickelback
Life – Our Lady Peace
Alive Again – Phillip Phillips
Dare You to Move – Switchfoot
You Never Let Me Down – Vertical Horizon
We Are – Vertical Horizon
And here are some songs that are also life-inspiring, but draw from a religious background. That is, if you’re open to spirituality and christianity, then these songs are great motivators. Now, I’m not a full on religious person, but I do have my faiths and beliefs that I stay true to. I believe in the power of prayer, and I do so during my hard times.
Dare to Believe – Colton Dixon
Limitless – Colton Dixon
More of You – Colton Dixon
You Are – Colton Dixon
I Am – David Crowder
And finally, my go-to song when I am in my ultimate lows and need a deep sense of belonging and purpose. This song actually assisted me during my lowest times.
Everything – Lifehouse
You can find the original on Youtube, an updated 2010 Live version, and a cover done by Colton Dixon on Youtube
I hope you all enjoy these songs and have found some inspiration to carry forward in life!! This is a shout out to you Stefan.

Personally, I have been listening to next to nothing other than Fleet Foxes for the past month. They got me through getting my heart broken and now that I’m bouncing back, I still frickin love them. Good times, bad times and everything in between. 🙂December 21, 2014 at 6:17 pm #69598AnonymousInactive
Sorry Spidey, your consumer commercial pop wants to make me throw up.
Try listening to WORKBENCH (peaceful)
or KINDZADZA (mental)

Love this post already – Music is big part of my life! 🙂
Even though i love listening to rap music quite a lot, I have a certain few artists that i just adore.
I love listening Jhene Aiko. She has 2 albums so far – ‘Sailing Soul(s)’ and ‘Souled Out.’ She is a Buddhist American Singer-Songwriter, with the most beautiful soft voice and a very interesting life. My favourite songs of hers are ‘Spotless Mind’ (the video on youtube is also amazing!>> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BaF-pGyKaOg ) ‘Everything Must Go’, ‘Eternal Sunshine’ and ‘Afternoon Dream’. But there are so many others you will just love to listen to as well.
Her voice is captivating and so peaceful.
When i don’t want to listen to that sort of music, i turn to soundtracks from movies.
My favourite soundtrack is ‘The Road To Perdition’ by the composer called, Thomas Newman. It’s beautiful.
Amongst my other favourite composers are Hans Zimmer, James Newton Howard, James Horner, Danny Elfman and John Williams.
If you Googled these names, some big movies will be attached to them!
Also @katie – I love Fleet Foxes! And Mumford and Sons too! Both albums are amaze 🙂April 13, 2015 at 1:42 am #75233Deborah ThompsonParticipant

For now I’m mostly listening All in and everything by (lifehouse), Alive again (Philip Phillips) , Lose yourselfMay 24, 2015 at 5:24 am #77164AlenParticipant
My inspirational music would definitely be by “explosions in the sky”, this band is mostly instrumental but their tracks are the type to be played while you contemplate life at 3 AM.
Another favorite would be “Sleeping At Last”. Beautiful music.August 19, 2015 at 4:36 pm #82069
