Inspirational Song Lines and Lyrics
Inspiration can come from many sources, for today we’ll talk about two:
1. Music is one of the most powerful tools to be inspired, the feelings you get from rhythm and melody are indescribable;
2. Inspirational quotes are also an excellent form of getting the inspiration you need.
Now imagine if you can put the two together. Well you don’t have to, because that’s what great musicians already did for you: combining the right melody with the right lines/lyrics, and bang! There you have it, the explosive combo of music and words for the ultimate inspiration. We don’t really know why, but there are those timeless lines from songs that stick in our heads for a lifetime.
Some of those songs are funny or just dumb and that’s ok, we also need them in life! But inspirational songs really are deep and we can relate to them because they bring us back great memories, or, they simply inspire us to live our daily life with a smile on our face and move on stronger.
With those things in mind I’ve selected some of the most inspirational song lines for you to get inspired. The feelings I get from these song lines and why they’re inspirational. Enjoy and tells me what is your favorite all time song line/lyric in the comment section.
“And if at first your don’t succeed, then dust yourself off and try again!” – Aaliyah “Try Again”
Song #1 – The late R&B singer Aaliyah, graced us with this gem before she left us in 2001. What a great motivational quote this is! Indeed deep, we were taught to be always right at school and if you failed you were no good… We took this concept to our adult life, conservatively, any time people fail they think they’re no good. But that’s not true, because the expert once was a beginner, so he had to fail time and time over, until he managed to get it right. So, you too can become an expert, as long as you don’t quit. You’ll fail at first, and probably more times, but keep on going, dust yourself off and try again wiser and stronger.
“Every little thing gonna be alright!” – Bob Marley and the Wailers “Three Little Birds”
Song #2 – Don’t worry…we might add. This is so strong and really a great self talk quote. When you or your mates are going through insecurities and tough times, this is what you have to really say to yourself or them: Keep calm, don’t worry, everything little thing is gonna be alright.
Destiny’s Child “Survivor”
Song #3 – Another great life guideline for encouragement and commitment. Back when Destiny Child were surviving the music industry and this was the theme song for it. What a great inspiration for women and anyone who’s willing to work hard to reach their goals. It’s about having a strong mindset to survive chaos and never stop working for your dreams.
Ben E. King “Stand By Me”
Song #4 – Such a classic line from the old days! Sometimes all we need is the right partner on our side and we are capable of doing unbelievable things. Things that we wouldn’t do by ourselves cause of fear. Remember no man is an island; you need to get your partnership working for a boost of courage in your life. Don’t just do it for you, have a higher purpose, like the person that’s next to you.
U2 “Beautiful Day”
Song #5 – This U2 song celebrates life like few can. The rest of the song lyrics consist of examples of daily life setbacks, where the obvious feeling is to become frustrated with. But instead U2 gives you the ultimate motivational tip: despite all the problems you may have, you must step outside them an realize there is another day to be lived, use it to your advantage. Don’t let negative situations break you, there is always a positive way of looking at things and overcome setbacks.
