I love to hear about people being inspired by a song or a piece of music. What has inspired you lately? What about it inspires you? The words? The way it is sung? Or maybe there are no words but the music itself moves you. If you have a utube link I would love to even listen to it.

There is a song called I'm alive by Kenny Chesney, it speaks of how no matter what is going on your life the good or the bad, that you should just stop and realize that god has granted me with another day of life.

I know what you mean. Most music that inspires me are without words. It is more about the beauty of the music for me. I would like to hear some Urdu and Hindi Music.

I'm a huge Elvis fan but one song in particular always comes to mind. It would be "the Hawaiian Wedding Song." Because I love Hawaii and the tune itself, it takes me back to the time we visited Hawaii. I can picture a beautiful Hawaiian wedding on the beach with Elvis singing in the background. It's always been a favorite of mine.

Hi, my friends, When I thinking about your Q, I can not find the only one immediately. However, I still want to recommend the song named"I have a dream". I heard it from the best band Westlife, but my friends told me that was not the origin of theirs. Anyway, when I feel tired, this song will warm me a lot.

I like to listen to music with drum beats because the sound of the drums is so powerful and energetic. It makes me wake up from the feeling of sleepiness early in the morning and every morning while driving to my home office which is situated in the next housing area from my own, I switch on the radio on my car and listen to energetic music with drums in it. In my house there is also a good quality speaker which enables me to listen to good music and I love to listen to it with my husband. The latest music that I really like to listen now is a song from Indonesia titled "Aku Dibius Cinta". This song is unique but at the same time makes me think that love can be defined in so many ways according to the composer's creativity. It is a kind of funny too, thinking that we can 'bius' love and all, but the way the singers sing it (it is a duet song) I find that I am tapping along with the song. I am sorry I don't listen from any utube link because I like to download songs from friends or I go to the computer store and ask them to download songs for me. To me this way is much quicker because usually the songs have been downloaded by them and they just have to transfer the songs into my computer and it takes just a couple of minutes and I can get a lot of new songs. Maybe next time if I happen to listen to utube songs, I will tell you about it.

Anyway.....by Martina McBride has turned out to be a theme song for me. I love trying different things....so I do them anyway....You can love someone with all your heart....and at anytime they can walk away....love them anyway. That pretty much sums up alot of my life....but at my age I have nothing to lose and everything to gain so I do it anyway.

I know there is always a song or songs that inspire us to do great things or help motivate us to overcome obstacles that get in our way,I personally can think of one song that has inspired me,it is Blow Me Away by Breaking Benjamin and it is from the game Halo 2,I have been listening to that song if I am playing a video game,especially Halo 3,and I reach a part that is hard,and it inspires me to push through and beat all the aliens that get in my way.

I don't know that song, hellcowboy.... that I know of. I am bad with titles. I'll look it up and give it a listen. I understand music pushing you through to do your best. I have certain music that I listen to when I have to do something I don't enjoy very much, like housework.

One of my favorite songs is Yolanda Adams "Through The Storm". It's very inspirational. when I hear it, I always think that no matter what I'm going through God is always there, and he always brings me through. Here is a link to the song- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FiVFTzTqlTE Her voice is so beautiful and powerful, and when she sings, she really sings for the Lord.

I can't think of a lot of songs that inspire me lately, just that there is a lot of music that I really like and that makes me feel better no matter what kind of mood I am in. Right now I am listening to some modern Croatian music. I don't understand a word of Croatian, I just really like the music, and the sound of the language.

I understand that, danishcanadian. I could listen to music even if I didn't understand the words, if the music really moved me.
