Hi All,

I am looking for some music that is empowering to woman.
(ie: Christina Aguilera-fighter) and kind of music would be great (pop, country, etc)
A friend of mine is feeling down, and I would like her to listen to some confidence music.

Any suggestions would be great.

Thanks
J.

Agree CGM3.You would lift her spirits,Jan6,as her friend much more than any music could.IMHO.

EDIT.One song that springs to mind is "I am Woman" Sung by Helen Reddy.

My adult Daughter really likes Alanis Morissette's music. (I do too!)

She's overcome many life problems that you can read about here.

Give the Lady these flowers :thumbsup: from her unknown BC friends.

thank you very much.
I want to give her some music, to have some strong words when she is on her own. I am very supportive and uplifting when I am with her.

Hi
my sister sent me a PowerPoint email about 2 years ago, in the background there is a song sung by Celine Dion called " I'm alive " Every time I put it on it lifts me up so much.

If I am allowed to send it to you via this site I would be happy to do so. Let me know.

Hi Jan6, I tried to see if I could upload the PowerPoint to PhotoBucket then you could have clicked on the link and maybe copied it...not sure, but it wouldn't let me do it, sorry. If there is a way I can send a powerpoint show to a forum member through this site I'd be happy for any of you guys to let me know how to do it.

Thanks

Sorry this post should be addressed to someone else and not Jan6...Hehehe....

I have been doing a search for "empowering" songs for a while now. I know they are out there, but there is no real place where there is a list. And there should be!! Anyway, that continuing search is how I found this thread. (And this thread is the only reason I signed up on here!)

So, if you are still interested, I have compiled a list of some pretty amazing songs that are sure to get your friend's focus right. Oh, and by the way, for those people that said just be a friend... first of all, duh. Second of all, lame answer. I mean, you are being a pretty fantastic friend by trying to keep her head in ther right frame of mind, to get her pumped about how much she rocks again when you aren't around. How much better of a friend can you be??!

So, here are a group of the best first:
  • Proud - Heather Small (Queer as Folk soundtrack... don't let that put you off!)
  • Watch Me Shine - Joanna Pacitti (Legally Blonde Broadway soundtrack)
  • Independence Day - Melanie C (Bend It Like Beckham soundtrack)
  • Video - india.arie
  • Fighter - Christina Aguilera (thanks for giving me this one!)
  • Survivor - Destiny's Child
  • There's Hope - india.arie
  • Breakaway - Kelly Clarkson
  • Unwritten - Natasha Bedingfield
  • Fly - Hilary Duff
  • Perfect Day - Hoku (Legally Blonde movie soundtrack... and I'm not a fan of the movie, by the way)
  • Can't Hold Us Down - Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim
  • B**** - Meredith Brooks (You know... bee-otch)
  • I Choose - india.arie
  • Strength, Courage, Wisdom - india.arie
  • Just for Today - india.arie (That girl KNOWS how to build up and affirm!)
I also think these two Broadway songs are amazing and remind me of what's important:
  • One Day More - Les Miserables
  • Seasons of Love - Rent (I like the movie version best, though)
The rest may or may not be the "pop" sound you were looking for and some might be more encouraging than empowering, but put them all in a big playlist and you can't help but feel AMAZING:
  • Have a Nice Day - Bon Jovi
  • Ordinary Day - Great Big Sea
  • Dream Big - Ryan Shupe
  • Live Like You Were Dyin' - Tim McGraw
  • Never Surrender - Corey Hart
  • Farewell to the Old Me - Dar Williams
  • Ya Gotta Be - Des'ree
  • Closer - Goapele
  • Use the Force - Jamiroquai
  • Kick a Little - Joey Mcintyre
  • I Have Been Blessed - Martina McBride
  • Climb Every Mountain - Peggy Wood/Sound of Music (Seriously! It works!)
  • Coming Out of the Dark - Gloria Estafan
  • Taller Stronger Better - Guy Sebastian
  • My Wish - Rascal Flatts
  • I Believe I Can Fly - R. Kelly
  • Don't Worry About a Thing - SHeDAISY
  • Man, I Feel Like a Woman! - Shania Twain
  • Upside Down - Jack Johnson
  • Your Life Is Now - John Cougar Mellencamp
  • Suddenly I See - KT Tunstall
  • Better Days - Goo Goo Dolls
  • Welcome to Wherever You Are - Bon Jovi
  • I Can See Clearly Now - Bob Marley
  • Sometimes It's a B**** - Stevie Nicks
  • Don't Worry Be Happy - Bobby McFerrin
  • Ego Is Not a Dirty Word - Skyhooks (old school, and a partial match... but no bad)
  • Stay the Same - Joey Mcintyre (this one only sort of works)
  • I Will Survive - Gloria Gaynor (for when dealing with the man issue)
These are more mellow, uplifting and spiritual, but even if you are not a Christian they lift and sooth you:
  • Calling All Angels - Jane Sibbery, KD Lang
  • Prayer of St. Francis - Sarah McLachlan
  • His Eye Is on the Sparrow - Lauryn Hill (Sister Act 2)
  • Oh Happy Day - Sister Act 2
  • Nothing But the Blood - Kim Johnson (try myspace)
  • You Move Me - Susan Ashton
I hope this helps... your friend, you, and any one (particularly any woman) that reads this. Feeding your mind and spirit this stuff will really, really change things. I decided that I don't care how sick of them I get, I'm saturating myself in this. It's amazing the change! In the midst of really desperate, difficult, and demoralizing times (the blackest you can imagine), I am confident and actually encouraging others constantly! Attitude is everything!!! But it is, as with everything in life, a choice. Good luck. :thumbsup:

Oh by the way, you might get your friend the book-on-tape (so to speak) of The Secret. I was a really, REALLY big sceptic of this thing, but after I started with the music, a trusted friend gave it to me and I was impressed. It will really help her see why it's important to keep your focus on the good - meaning on her strengths, dreams, passions, and on a CONFIDENT, FABULOUS version of her. Just a thought. It was a great gift, even if I was annoyed at first! (And I've only just begun it...) :flowers:
