Songs that Inspire

Posted on October 14, 2009 by Lana Lile

Last Tuesday’s Facebook TueSpot generated some great replies. What about? Songs that make a statement for CHANGE. As a blog reader, I’d like to share these clips of musical inspiration with you too! From 1980’s favorites that will never die to current European indie/pop stars and our favorite pew-side hymns, it seems that we can find a little inspiration wherever we look. As we head into the holiday season, a time where change is all around and love abounds, it seems that a bit of cheer is in order. Here’s a list of our ELCA World Hunger Facebook Cause members’ favorite notes that inspire change.

(listen @ www.YouTube.com)

1. On The Turning Away by Pink Floyd

2. Do They Know It’s Christmas by Band Aid

3. Praise and Thanksgiving by Albert F. Bayly (hymn #689 ELW or #409 LBW)

4. Yell Fire by Michael Franti

5. Have a Little Faith by Michael Franti

6. Womanizer Cover by Timid Tiger
