A brief (non-)commercial break

I am trying to put together a list of truly inspirational songs. As a writer, I occasionally get into funks of “poor me, can’t get an agent”. They don’t last long but I hate them! So I’m hoping having a prepared list of “listen to these and cheer up” songs will help.

If you have one that works for you, please go to my personal blog and add it to the comments, or feel free to add it here if that’s easier on you.

Thanks, and I’ll post the finished list here if there’s interest.

    I can’t stop playing http://www.playingforchange.com/episodes/2/Stand_by_Me . The song itself is good, but this rendition (and the story behind it) in particular is really cool and kind of spirit-lifting.

    No warranties on the lyrics, but here’s a few songs that make me happy:

    “You Found Me” : The Fray
    “Show Me What I’m Looking For” : Carolina Liar
    “Monday” : Wilco
    “Tiny Dancer” : Elton John
    “I’m Like a Bird” : Nelly Furtado
    “Landed” : Ben Folds

    I know it’s super corny, but “Grace Kelly” by MIKA always perks me up. It’s especially awesome to sing if you’re a eunuch. 🙂
