What song's really inspirational to you? - September 19th 2009, 07:12 AM

Old song, new song, any song. Just what is it?

Mine's Jumper by Third Eye Blind...I'm learning it on guitar, and it easily became one of my favorite songs!

Hey Megan,
I've just moved this thread to Sports and Entertainment as I though it fit better here. If anyone disagrees, let me know.

I think that The Adventure (or any other Angels and Airwaves song for that matter ) is pretty inspiring. :]

Hope Vol. 2 by Apocalyptica
Good Left Undone by Rise Against
The Sound of Truth by As I Lay Dying

Very odd selection, but I find them to be inspirational

-George Eliot

"Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it."

Maybe this seems kind of weird for someone my age, but I love Miley Cyrus like a whole bunch. =D I watch Hannah Montana frequently and have her CDs.
Aaaaanyway, what I'm getting at is that I think the song "The Climb" is wicked inspirational. I blast it in my car when something gets me down and it reminds me of how strong I am. =]

Re: What song's really inspirational to you? - September 20th 2009, 02:59 PM

There's a couple of songs that I love, that mean a lot to me.

Before my friend went away to Uni we used to go on these really long drives where we'd just blast music as loud as we could and just be awesome.
This one night we were in the carpark above ****** this is what you can see. And Hands Down by Dashboard Confessional came on the shuffle and I just felt so indestructible. Since then that songs just made me like... wow. (:

Also one time I was surfing and it was early evening, and the sky was bright red, it was incredible. But there was no waves so we were all just drifting. Then my friend Zac stood up on his board and sang this incredibly wierd but amazing version of Iris by The Goo Goo dolls.. since then I've loved that too.

EDIT: Your Guardian Angel - Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. Someone played me this song and told me it would look after me. Not long after he passed away, ever since then this song has meant so much to me.


You are the one, the one who lies next to me,
Whispers "hello, I missed you quite terribly"

No Day But Today from Rent


Not around so much now that school's started

"Live a good life.
If there are gods and they are just,
then they will not care how devout you have been,
but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by.
If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them.
If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life
that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."
Marcus Aurelius

In the beginning, by K'naan. The most amazing political song I've heard in my life.
"Put up your fists if all you want is freedom"


"Life is pain, anybody that says different is selling something" ~ Fezzik's Mother, The Princess Bride. ♥

"To die, would be an awfully big adventure."~ Peter Pan

"Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumoured by many.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.
But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it."

~ The Buddha

For me it has to be either Pentagram by Possesed or Evil Dead by Death.

Those songs just make me want to raise a few zombies here and there \m/

Broken-hearted girl- Beyonce, it reminds me of all the things I don't want to be.
Heaven Sent- Keyshia Cole.... it's inspirational because I want to be some of the things meant in this song.
I wanna be- Chris Brown... it's just a beautiful song about how this guy is just a friend and wants to be so much more to his best girl friend... just so beautiful.

All of these songs are bound to make me cry almost everytime I listen to them.

I'll also add many Michael Jackson songs inspire me, like Man in The Mirror and Smile (even if that one's not originally his.)

A Warm Place - Nine Inch Nails
Salvation - The Cranberries (helps keep me from getting too curious...)
Why Can't I Be You? - The Cure
Believe - Moneen

Those ones make me feel like I can survive anything lol.

Yay @ another Miley fan I fine Bottom of the Ocean the most inspiring though -points to signature- <333

Oasis - Stop Crying Your Heart Out is one of my favs <3333

Others are Flyleaf - All Around Me (I prefer the acoustic version), Kerli - The Creationist (always makes me smile when I'm sad), Michael Jackson - Earth Song, Michael Jackson - Man In The Mirror, Pink - Who Knew (only because it reminds me of a person I really cared for) and a few others
