What comes to mind for me is “We are the world” USA for Africa in 1985, “The Prayer” Celine Dion, “Wind Beneath my Wings” Bette Midler and “That’s what friends are for” Dionne Warwick.
Came back to add the music of Carrie Newcomer to this question.
Take More Time, Cover Less Ground https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kzo_Ntd-vM&ab_channel=CarrieNewcomer. From the lyrics: “Not empty or full, just a big ol’ glass”
Room at the Table for Everyone https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=92OM5bdQ4N4&ab_channel=CarrieNewcomer. You’ll dance if you watch this one.
The Great Discovery by The Movement. <3
How could I forget Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah?
Oh yesm Dolores!!! One of my favorites! Thank you for the reminder!!
What a great question! Music is my way of expressing gratitude, joy, sadness, grief – you name the emotion. IMO it is one of the greatest gifts our Creator has given us.

Thank you for this list! I appreciate the chance to listen to new-to-me artists. Alive and Well Gratitude Mantra is beautiful. I started there, moving on to the others.
Love this question. I feel a bit overwhelmed with it tho, because there are so many songs I am grateful for as well as the artists.
My Sweet Lord – George Harrison
Harvest Moon – Neil Young
Scarlet Begonias – Grateful Dead
Annie’s Song – John Denver
…….so so many more; this is a snippet.❤️
Love Harvest Moon starting with the title let alone the song lol.
This beautiful song is literally titled “Grateful”, written by John Buccino and performed by Brian Stokes Mitchell
Kind and Generous by Natalie Merchant
I want to thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you …….
I am having a hard time coming up with titles.
The one that keeps surfacing in my head is a song from Johnny Appleseed.
“OH the Lord is good to me
And so I thank the Lord
For giving me
The sun, the rain, and the Appleseed
The Lord is good to me.
With all the conflict in the world, any song of peace also surfaces for those whose lives have been so disrupted.
We sing the Johnny Appleseed song with children at our children’s retreat program. Nothing like hearing the voices of children singing these kinds of songs! Thanks Yram, for listing this tune in particular.
I remember this song -it was a song we sang in fifth grade on a camping trip at meal time.
What a great question!
These are what come to mind at
05:00. I could spend all day putting
this together, but alas, I must get
ready for work. I look forward to
hearing what the rest of you have in
“ Ripple” -Grateful Dead
“Crazy” -Gnarls Barkley (CeeLo Green)
“”Superstition” -Stevie Wonder
“ Bridge over troubled water”
– Simon and Garfunkel
“ Imagine” -John Lennon
“Sing a song” – Earth, wind, and fire
“Lovely Day” -Bill Withers
Agreed, great list.
Yes, yes to Ripple. One of my favorites.
Love me some Jerry.❤️
What a great question! I don’t listen to music as much as I used to and it’s something I’d like to get back into my life. The first song that popped into my head was Morning Has Broken sung by the man known as Cat Stevens at that time, now Yusuf. https://youtu.be/DmAOBosGlHY?si=ZLuOIzuKcLnRxzTG
Some songs make my heart swell and I’m just not coming up with their titles right now. A couple more though: One Love by Bob Marley https://youtu.be/vdB-8eLEW8g?si=Jhn9pzmhHq7PvZDM and Somewhere Over the Rainbow and What a Wonderful World by Israel “Iz” Kamakawiwo’ole https://youtu.be/Z26BvHOD_sg?si=ypfmeNessDDfr5Wd.
Barb, Your list is right up my alley too!!! I love Israel’s rendition of Somewhere over the Rainbow!!! Thank you for the reminder!!
So many….But I cannot think of them all…”What a Wonderful World” Louis Armstrong, “Here I am, Lord”, by John Michael Talbot – and as Mary Mantel said, “Happy” by Pharrel Williams…makes me dance and smile. Certainly classics by the Beatles, John Denver, especially “Country Roads”, and James Taylor. I will need to play some music this morning after this question!!
Wishing everyone a good Friday. Raining here in W.V. We had some sunshine yesterday- the first in several days. I was able to get some outside work completed- but not all I wanted to do!! Hopefully, there will be a few dry days ahead!!
How I love the hymn “Here I am, Lord” . Thank you for the reminder of such beautiful words.
Oh, yes, Louis Armstrong!
There are way too many songs to list, but it would be a compilation of happy, positive music by artists like Jimmy Buffet, 311, Kenny Chesney, the Avett Brothers and more! Happy Friday 🎶
The Sound of Music sung by Julie Andrews, What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong, Take me Home by John Denver, Blessed are They by David Haas, I Have Loved You (Hymn) …
