Day 7 - 15 Days of Thankfulness - 3 Inspirational Songs

Today's question is what three inspirational songs are you thankful for.  I have an extremely eclectic taste in music.  From hip-hop to Gothic rock, techno to classical.  I like a little bit of everything.  So the three songs I picked, while inspirational to me, are quite varied in style.

1. Lionheart by Amberian Dawn 
This song is about one of my favorite Egyptian goddesses, Sekhmet.  She is the lioness-headed goddess of war.  I have always been drawn to lions, as well as certain goddesses that portray qualities that aren't typical of "the feminine".

2. Isle of Inisfree by Celtic Woman
Most of the songs sang by this wonderful group are beautiful, but this one is one of my favorites.  Orla has such a great voice and is so talented on the harp.  This song speaks to the country girl in me that yearns for simplicity.  

3. The Reason by Hoobastank
I like this song for two reasons.  One, the lyrics.  Loving someone enough to try and better yourself for their sake is a beautiful thing.  Two, the music.  There are so many harmonies you can sing to this song.  I always like singing it with my sister when it comes on the radio or a CD we have.
