My Favourite Inspirational Quotes in... Music




Hello Everyone, sorry its been a long time since my last blog post, its been a busy month. The last month has involved me visiting the wonderful country of Canada, so I'm sorry for the lack of posts, so lets get to it!

 By far the most popular posts that I've done on my blog have been those that start with 'My Favourite Inspirational Quotes in...' and so today I thought that I would do a music edition. Personally, I'm more of a music person than a movie person as I feel that there's a lot more you can learn from song through the lyrics and the tune, just my personal opinion though!


Get up, stand up, Stand up for your rights. Get up, stand up, Don't give up the fight
- Bob Marley, Get Up Stand up


Bob Marley has definitely written some of the best feel-good songs for when your down, and so he never fails to lift my mood. This lyric can help all those that feel a lack of motivation in their lives. The song is all about standing up for what you truly believe in and dusting of your shoulders and trying again. Only by trying again and fighting for it will you get the things that you really want in life.

You may say that I'm a dreamer, But I'm not the only one, I hope someday you'll join us, And the world will be as one
- John Lennon, Imagine
Often when watching 'Best songs of all time' videos on MTV or something, this song often makes it to the top, its a classic. I love this song and its message. Looking at today's world, you see all this fighting, in Egypt, in Syria, in Iraq and so on. These people may be fighting for a reason that they truly believe in but sometimes it can be because of the most petty things. I like the idea of uniting this song brings and letting go of insignificant things and being 'as one'.


You have every right to a beautiful life.
- Selena Gomez, Who Says


Lets be honest, Selena Gomez is no musical genius, and to be fair I don't even know if she wrote this song but the message is great. At the end of the day, you are no different from anyone else and so, your dreams are not any less significant. You are living your life for yourself, and so aim to make your life exactly how you dreamt to be.


Take my hand and we'll make it - I swear
- Bon Jovi, Livin on a Prayer


I absolutely love this song, and it's not just because of the funky music. Sometimes in life you just need a little nudge to let you know that everything is going to be OK. You may be being going through a rough patch in life but its always good to remember that 'it can only get better.'


Love me or hate me, i swear it won't make or break me.
- Lil Wayne, Love me or Hate me


I don't really listen to rap music and only came across this lyric to see if there were any other inspirational music quotes that I may like to include in this post. There are many people in life that are going to judge you, whether it be at work, school or family and this can often get you feeling anxious and/ or upset. Sometimes, you have to be the bigger person and just ignore any negativity that you may receive, those people will eventually get bored and move on. You have to learn not to be affected by it all, for your own good.


I remember it now, it takes me back to when it all first started. But I've only got myself to blame for it, and I accept it now. It's time to let it go, go out and start again, but its not that easy
- Kodaline, High Hopes


Its easy to be wrapped up in all the sadness and unhappiness when you are going through a depressing period. If you keep dwelling on the past, on things you can't change you're not really helping yourself. Sometimes its best to let things go and have a fresh start even though it may not be easy like the song says.
