10 Upbeat Songs To Inspire Sophia

Last Saturday, I was feeling a bit under the weather, so I searched happy songs in YouTube. I came across my teen idols Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys and the likes. And while I was trying to pull quite an emotional rendition of “From the bottom of my broken heart. Even though time may find me somebody new. You were my real love. I never knew love. ‘Til there was you”, I noticed Sophia was trying to sing along with me.

I realized if I would somehow influence my daughter’s taste in music, I might as well play lots of positive and inspirational songs. I mean, she can sing along to all the “Art Of Letting Go” and “Until I Get Over You” when the time comes. Now, will expose her to uplifting music.

Here are my top 10 favorites:

1. Fight Song by Rachel Platten

This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I’m alright song
My power’s turned on
Starting right now I’ll be strong (I’ll be strong)
I’ll play my fight song
And I don’t really care if nobody else believes
‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me

2. The Climb by Miley Cyrus

There’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Sometimes you’re gonna have to lose
Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb

3. Roar by Katy Perry

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter
Dancing through the fire
‘Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
‘Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar

4. Speechless by Naomi Scott

‘Cause I’ll breathe
When they try to suffocate me
Don’t you underestimate me
‘Cause I know that I won’t go speechless
All I know is I won’t go speechless

5. Happy by Pharrell Williams

Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do

6. How Far I’ll Go by Alessia Cara

And the line where the sky meets the sea
It calls me
And no one knows
How far it goes
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
One day I’ll know
How far I’ll go

7. Let It Go by Idina Menzel

It’s funny how some distance makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me can’t get to me at all
It’s time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me
I’m free

8. A Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman

Every night I lie in bed
The brightest colours fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
A million dreams, a million dreams
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it’s gonna take
A million dreams for the world we’re gonna make

9. Rainbow by Liz Huett

When I look at my life
Wanna see myself shine on the dance floor
But I won’t get it right until I stop asking why
And just let it go
Sometimes I take a look at my life
I take a look at my life
And say oh, oh
Wanna get it, yeah
Gotta get it, don’t need a pot of gold

10. Breakaway by Kelly Clarkson

I’ll spread my wings
And I’ll learn how to fly
Though it’s not easy to tell you goodbye
I gotta take a risk, take a chance, make a change
And breakaway

Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won’t forget the place I come from
I gotta take a risk, take a chance, make a change
And breakaway

I created a playlist for Sophia in YouTube. Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6ww1aDQIvUgBqR_JtTkGIwgZqDl9CE3i
