Are there any secular songs that you enjoy because of the message/values they communicate to you?
I have a few secular songs off the top of my head that inspire me or remind me to focus on living out a particular value in my life… please post your own to add to the list!!! We could all stand to be a little inspired these days!
Aerosmith - “Amazing” (Thankfulness, grace, perseverance, courage, deliverance)
Hootie & The Blowfish - “Hold My Hand” (the power of love and forgiveness, dedication and commitment. I really like the way the video shows “all kinds” of love - Mother for unborn child, Father and children, romantic love, friendship, etc.)
Iron Maiden - “Wasted Years” (Channeling regret for positive purposes instead of negative purposes, thankfulness)
Manowar - “Courage” (Well, courage obviously…), Manowar - “Father” (Love of parents), Sarah Brightman & Manowar - “Where Eagles Fly” (Love of spouse), Manowar - “Blood Brothers” (Love of friends) (Sorry, I couldn’t pick just one)
Michael Jackson - Man in the Mirror (Hope, faith, responsibility, courage, compassion)
Scorpions - Winds of Change (Freedom, peace, justice)
