Here are a few of my favorite inspiring lyrical songs. When these words get stuck in my head, it’s a very good thing, like a powerful mantra that reminds me of what I’m truly committed to.
I’ve grouped them by the type of message they transmit and have included an excerpt of the lyrics so you can listen to the ones you’re drawn to. You can listen to each of these songs for free online by following the links, and most of them are available for purchase.
Many of these songs are from the same musical genre (softer, more spiritual, healing and medicine songs), but these are simply the ones that first came to mind when I put the list together. Check back every week or so as I’ll be updating this list with new additions from a wider variety of genres.
