    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.

    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.
    So many, but my favorites –
    Precious Lord, Take My Hand
    Abide With me
    Send in the Clowns – Judy Collins
    Both Sides Now – Joni Mitchell

      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.

    Annie’s Song – John Denver
    …….so so many more; this is a snippet.❤️

    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.

    mind.

    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.

    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!!

    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 🎶
