Most Inspirational Song

by Amod Joshi on November 24, 2012

One of the most inspirational song that I keep humming is the one by Mariah Carey – “The Hero”. Pay close attention to the wordings of this song and you can see that the key message “A Hero lies in you…” is basically suggesting that we have the power within each one of us. Every verse in this song has an inspirational message. It is an amazing song and it is even more amazing to know how this song was coined.

Maria Carey and her song producer, Walter Afanasieff, were writing a song for the film – The Hero. Maria was not allowed to sing the song for any movie (to protect her career as a solo artist). She and Afanasieff were only composing the song for this film. Words flowed through Maria as she wrote this song, but she did not connect to its style or sound. Just then, her fiancé and Sony Music Entertainment CEO, walked in the studio and listened to the song. He just loved it. He convinced Maria to keep the song for herself and personalise it.

The song went on to become one of Maria Carey’s signature songs and she included it in all her key live performances, including –   Michael Jackson & Friends in 1999, America: A Tribute to Heroes in 2001, Live 8 in 2005, and the inaugural ball for Barack Obama in 2009.

Enjoy this song and stay inspired!

There’s a hero
If you look inside your heart
You don’t have to be afraid
Of what you are
There’s an answer
If you reach into your soul
And the sorrow that you know
Will melt away

No matter who you are, no matter what you are looking for, the answer is within you. If you reach deep within your heart and reach the soul, you will experience that all the sorrows and worries will disappear.

And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you’ll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you

The Hero – the strength, the power, the inspiration is within YOU!!

It’s a long, road
When you face the world alone
No one reaches out a hand
For you to hold
You can find love
If you search within yourself
And the emptiness you felt
Will disappear

We keep searching for support, happiness and love in the outside world. We depend on others to give us what we want, whereas everything is within us. Our mind decides to be happy or not; to feel loved or not.

Lord knows
Dreams are hard to follow
But don’t let anyone
Tear them away
Hold on
There will be tomorrow
In time
You’ll find the way

Never give up on your dreams. There is a gestational period for everything and the dreams will come true!

It is an incredible song with a deep and powerful meaning – a message from the Universe / God / Almighty / Higher Self, channelled trough Mariah Carey.
