Music is a powerful thing. It speaks to our souls and penetrates our deepest places. There are certain songs that we pick as favorites, and there’s always a reason. Here are five songs that are personal favorites of mine, and mainly because they inspire and motivate me:
- “Calls Me Home” by Shannon LeBrie
A friend introduced me to this song, and I couldn’t stop listening to it. I imagine breathing when I hear it; it has that breathless kind of tone to it. It’s a song that can enchant you.
- “Happy” by Pharrell Williams
Yes, really. And though it seems that everyone likes this song, it really does make me feel happy. I even dance in the car when it comes on the radio.
- “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons
It’s funny, because when people hear this song they don’t generally associate it with me, but I’ve come to discover that I really like rock, specifically the kind that’s more regular with nothing crazy in it, often the stuff that Imagine Dragons do.
- “I’m Coming Home” cover by Boyce Avenue
The original is by Diddy, but I like the cover done by Boyce Avenue more, mostly for the lyrics. This song makes me feel a sense of hope.
- “We Dance” by Steffany Frizzell
This song describes what I see as the kind of relationship with God that is the most pure, and really what God desires. He just wants to dance with us.
