This is a list of some of my favorite songs that kept me motivated and inspired in 2013. The lyrics and message of each song are inspirational and singing them out loud or in my head have helped me to push forward through the tough times. So just go right now and listen to the song, but also listen to the lyrics. Now, go! 

1. Breaking Benjamin– “I will not bow” : This song motivates you to continue being strong and unending even when everything is against you.

2. Angels and Airwaves– “Surrender” :  This song is just insanely good. Teaches you that the world would be a better place if we helped lift each other up, and of course people would be happy even if there were “bombs landing at their feet”.

3. Paramore– “Miracle” : This is one of my favourite Paramore songs lyrically because it shows so much hope for everything. Teaches you to keep faith in God. You may have made mistakes, but in the end, no one’s perfect.

4. Lykke Li– “Dance, dance, dance”- The song is so energetic but still emotional and “relatable”. The song is just about the feeling that dancing gives you….you know how lots of people feel kind of free and can express themselves so easily in dance rather than in words. It can be therapeutic when you’re upset.

5. Switchfoot– “Dare you to move” : This song is so powerful…makes me want go out there and make the world a better place. It’s basically saying that it’s time for a change, and you can either stay down, or pick your self up and move like today never happened before.

6. FUN– “Carry on” : This lifting song is the best track off their album, in my opinion. The song is really inspirational…telling you to forget about the bad things and just “carry on”.

7. P!nk– “Try” : This song speaks for itself. It’s about struggling for somebody’s love and care. Fighting the obstacles which distance you from the person you desire,preparing for the worse and expecting the best.

8. Imagine Dragons– “It’s time” : I love the clapping in the beginning that carries out through the rest of the song. It’s so powerful and awesome. Based on what the band said, the song’s about “being true to who you are”.

9. Paramore– “Looking up” : Listening to a song like this just brings a smile on your face. Not only is it a true story but there’s a lot of hope and triumph, you can just HEAR it. Paramore is just an amazing band, changed a lot of my outlook on things.

We would like to hear from you: What songs inspired and motivated you in 2013?
