How to Get Your Song Featured

If you’re a song writer and have songs that would be appropriate for this page and would like to be considered for the featured section, let me know. I’m looking for songs that have a positive message with a nice melody or beat. How long it will stay featured will depend on the amount of submissions I get.

Not all feature songs are artist submitted. If I happen to come across a song I like, I’ll feature it. These will typically be songs that are by less known artists. This is my way of supporting these folks. If I don’t feature your song, please don’t take it personally. You could always add it to the comments section down below.


*These songs are in alphabetical order. “New” means songs that were recently added to the list. Enjoy!

Music enhances the experience of life for it has the power to move the deepest depths of our souls.” – Kevin Ngo

There’s no better way to motivate yourself than listening to a motivational song that pumps you up, puts a smile on your face, and shoots your confidence through the roof.

Everyone has a handful of songs that when they listen to it, it just makes them want to take action. Some of these inspiring songs can have lyrics that have nothing to do with motivation, yet we are inspired to take action. This is because we consciously or unconsciously anchor certain feelings to certain songs.

I’m sure you have a list songs where when you hear it, it will bring you into a certain state whether it’s excitement, sadness, peaceful, etc. The songs above are just some songs I find motivational to me. Most of these songs have inspiring messages, some have an upbeat motivational sound to it, while others are just classic songs that conjure up images of inspiration. When you find inspirational songs that pump you up, use them to propel yourself towards the accomplishment of your goals.

Again, if there are any songs you know of that aren’t on this list, please add them in the comments section. Thanks.
