This is the queen of all inspiring songs. The lyrics will motivate you in surprising ways, I was in tears the first I listened to this song. Rachel Platten’s vocals are undeniably one of the best and Fight Song is her precious gift to the world.

Titanium is about getting up every time one falls, no matter how hard one is pushed down, getting up stronger and harder. Australian singer Sia and French DJ David Guetta created a wonder that inspires listeners from every part of the world.
Firework by Katy Perry
Featured in Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, Firework is regarded as one of the best songs ever produced by Katy Perry. The song motivates you to show the world your true worth. Firework is good for your self-esteem.
Love Myself by Hailee Steinfeld
Hailee Steinfeld is my top favourite singer. She acts well too, but let’s stay on the topic. Many people consider other’s love to be an important factor to stay happy. Hailee’s Love Myself persuades the listener to stop considering other’s love to define one’s happiness and motivates to love oneself.
Dream On by Aerosmith
It’s in the name, this power ballad is from 1973, but its power and its essence are still felt even now. The power of music never fades. Dreams don’t come true without effort and hard work. Though you put in the effort and hard work, the results don’t show, in such times, Aerosmith’s Dream On is what you must jam, because you gotta Dream until the dream come true.
Brave by Sara Bareilles
Sara Bareilles was inspired to write this song from her friend’s struggle in coming out. The lyrics are commanding in a positive way. Brave pushes you to tell the world the truth, the truth about yourself and be confident about telling the truth.
Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey
There is a good story behind every song. Jonathan Cain is the keyboardist of the rock band, Journey. During his struggle in the early days of his career on Los Angeles’ Sunset Boulevard, he was ready to give up. However, when he called his father, every time he was replied with, “Don’t stop believing or you’re done, dude.” Fans are glad Jonathan never gave up.
Wavin’ Flag (Coca-Cola Celebration Mix) by K’naan
If you happen to be a football fan, you might already know this song and might even be tired of listening to it. But you gotta admit, Wavin’ Flag is a masterpiece. No matter when or where you listen to this song, it brightens your mood in no time. It talks about the struggles of Somalian refugees displaced by war.
Not Afraid by Eminem
Easily one of the topmost famous and hot rappers in the world of his generation, Eminem gained traction for his authentic work. His music is a celebration for rappers around the globe. Not Afraid is an ode to being a better self. The lyrics are more about the rapper’s journey; his mistakes and his vision.
Older by Ben Platt
With the power to make you cry in seconds, Ben Platt is a talented singer and actor. This song addresses the fact about us wanting to be older when we are young and wanting to be younger when we are old. This might sound funny and intriguing, but trust me, Older provokes your heart to start working on your goals right away.
Drag Me Down by One Direction
Say what you may, I love One Direction. The band’s work is phenomenal. The boy band ruled billboard charts before they split up. Drag Me Down is a hit song highlighting the support from a loved one with which one can be unstoppable.
Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You) by Kelly Clarkson
I heard a line in The Dark Knight when Joker says, “I believe whatever doesn’t kill you, simply makes you stranger.” The song however is inspired by a German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche. “That which does not kill us makes us stronger” from Friedrich’s adage was told to Ali Tamposi by his mother that made him write this song and Kelly Clarkson took this song to a great height.
All Star by Smash Mouth
Known for getting featured in Shrek (2001), All Star is regarded as an anthem for outcasts. From becoming a pop culture phenomenon to widely being used as a meme on the internet, we all had fun with this song. Yet, we can never forget the significance of the motivation it provides, it simply moves the inner spirit.
It’s My Life by Bon Jovi
The song was initially written by Bon Jovi to be about himself, about his life. When the song came out, it was a huge hit and everyone that listened to the song were able to relate. We got one life and we have to live it in the right way for every second. The song emphasises the limited time we have. We gotta take over the control of our lives ASAP.
High Hopes by Panic! At The Disco
The last and the most energetic track on this list of most inspiring songs. I kept this song for last because most of us even after having everything to work on our goals: the right motivation, the right atmosphere and the might support, most tend to give up in the long run, we lose hope. Having hopes up even when we don’t have anything is a powerful gesture. High Hope has robust lyrics: Fulfil the prophecy, Be something greater, Go make a legacy, Manifest destiny. If these words can’t motivate you, nothing can.
You now know the best songs to listen to for motivation, mate. I wish you all the best for whatever your goals are. Listen to these exceptional songs and never give up on your dreams.
