  1. Hey Jo,

    I use to be a HUGE music fan. That is until I started working at home and just don’t have time to listen to it anymore.

    Now that my Mom lives next door and every time we go anywhere she’s with me, I never turn the music on because she’s so hard of hearing in the first place she would be talking over the music so why bother.

    So with that being said I’ve not heard any of these pieces. I can’t listen to music while I work because I have to be concentrating on what I’m doing. Great shares though, thank you.

    1. Hi Adrienne,

      For me, it is quite the reverse. I never used to be a big music fan.

      Now, I love listening to music to chill me out or as in the case of the songs I have chosen to help inspire and encourage me on days when I am feeling blue.

      Thank you for commenting and have a great week.


  2. Hey Jo,

    Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You) is not a bad song at all. But, I like “the climb” song by Miley cyrus of film Hannah Montana.

    Thanking you for commenting and have a great weekend.


    1. Hi Zoe,

      I like a bit of Bon Jovi but I’ve had to go and google Keep the Faith as I wasn’t sure I had heard of that one. Another song to play I think.

      Thank you for telling me about some more songs that can inspire me


  4. Ah, Let it Go. Such a great song. It has a beautiful message to it and, I’ll admit that I get pumped up to it while listening. For me, a great inspirational song is actually a piece of classical music – The Ode to Joy by Beethoven. When the choir gets going, it just fills my heart up and lifts me out of my body. Such a great, wonderful peice of work.

    1. Hi Steve,

      I must admit I love Let It Go. It is quite catchy too which I suspect is why it has become so become so well known.

      I don’t think I have ever heard Ode To Joy so I will have to check that one out. Thank you for recommending it.

      Have a great Easter.
