The following is a list of songs that everyone should have. This is what I call “mood setting music.” I listen to these songs when I want to be inspired.

Angie Aparo – Wonderland
Butch Walker – Don’t Move
Jump Little Children – Close Your Eyes
Counting Crows – Colorblind
Five For Fighting – Love Song
Greg Laswell – High and Low
Mindy Smith – Down in Flames
Seabird – Maggie Mahoney
Paramore – Hallelujah
Sigur Rós – Glósóli
Matthew Perryman Jones – Save You

What are some of your “mood setting songs?”

    seriously though.

    Star Wars or Superman Theme Songs to inspire

    I used to listen to “The Distance” by Cake before all my high school soccer games.

    i love that you have seabird on that list, great album 🙂

    for me, to be inspired… i’d say something switchfoot, jimmy eat world, rocket summer, john mayer or bebo norman.

    Love paramore…and I like that this list is so varied. There is never just one song or one genre that inspires me. Just too many to list!

    Angie Aparo is one of my favorites too. And “Rain King” by Counting Crows and lately “American Girls” has been on repeat too.

    “All Will Be Well” by Gabe Dixon Band has been a favorite of mine lately. Takes me back about 20 years when I was first discovering Billy Joel.
