Promote Kindness - 15 Songs to Inspire You

Once a woman gave me a 20% coupon in a store because she had an extra one. I had no idea who she was, but I thought, “If only there were more people in the world like you.” Her kindness, as small as it seems, made me want to do something nice for someone too. 


Kindness should be contagious. Unfortunately it’s not. But it could be. 


Here are fifteen songs (in no particular order) that have inspired others to make a difference in the world. Hopefully they inspire you too.


What songs do you think should be added?


Man in the Mirror (Michael Jackson)



What a Wonderful World (Louis Armstrong)



Imagine (John Lennon)



Hero (Mariah Carey)


Conviction of the Heart (Kenny Loggins)


We Are the World (USA for Africa)


Bridge Over Troubled Water (Simon and Garfunkel)

Video only contains vocals



Stand By Me (Original Song by Ben E. King. Below is the video from Playing For Change)


One (U2)



I Was Here (Beyonce)


If Everyone Cared (Nickelback)

Also their song -  When We Stand Together



Heal The World (Michael Jackson)

Also Human Nature



Greatest Love of All (Whitney Houston)


True Colors (Cyndi Lauper)


In the Ghetto (Elvis)

    What a great post. Was looking for songs to promote kindness for a friend. :) I find it interesting what made you write the post. I have given people extra coupons like that. It seems I always end up with more than one at kohl's so I try to give my extra away. :)
