August 20, 2016

1. Journey – Don’t Stop Believin’

Lyrics: Some will win, some will lose

Some were born to sing the blues

Oh, the movie never ends

It goes on and on, and on, and on

Don’t stop believin’

Hold on to the feelin’

 

2. Baz Luhrmann – Wear Sunscreen

Lyrics: Don’t worry about the future or worry, but know that worrying

Is as affective as trying to solve an algebra equation

By chewing bubble gum

The real troubles in your life are apt to be things

That never crossed your worried mind

The kind that blindsides you at 4 p.m. on some idle Tuesday

 

3. Jimmy Cliff – Wonderful World Beautiful People

Lyrics: Take a look at the world

And the state that it’s in today

I am sure you’ll agree

We all could make it a better way

With our love, put together

Everybody learn to love each other 

 

4. Bob Marley – Three Little Birds

Lyrics: Don’t worry about a thing

‘Cause every little thing gonna be alright

Singing’ don’t worry about a thing

‘Cause every little thing gonna be alright

 

5. Lighthouse Family – Lifted

Lyrics: When it all gets dark again

The whole thing falls apart I guess

It doesn’t really matter ’bout the rain

‘Cause we’ll get through it anyway

We’ll get up and start again

 

6. R.E.M – Shiny Happy People

Lyrics: Everyone around, love them, love them

Put it in your hands, take it, take it

There’s no time to cry, happy, happy

Put it in your heart where tomorrow shines

Gold and silver shine

 

7. Bill Withers – Lovely Day

Lyrics: When the day that lies ahead of me

Seems impossible to face

When someone else instead of me

Always seems to know the way

Then I look at you

And the world’s alright with me

 

8. The Beatles – All You Need is Love

Lyrics: There’s nothing you can know that isn’t known.

Nothing you can see that isn’t shown.

There’s nowhere you can be that isn’t where

You’re meant to be

It’s easy.

All you need is love, all you need is love,

All you need is love, love. Love is all you need.

 

9. Curtis Mayfield – Move On Up

Lyrics: Bite your lip, and take a trip

Though there may be wet road ahead

And you cannot slip so what you wanna do

Just move on up for peace you will find

Into the steeple of beautiful people

Where there’s only one kind

 

10. Christina Aguilera – The Voice Within

Lyrics: Now in a world where innocence is quickly claimed

It’s so hard to stand your ground when you’re so afraid

No one reaches out a hand for you to hold

When you look outside, look inside to your soul

When there’s no one else, look inside yourself

Like your oldest friend, just trust the voice within

Then you’ll find the strength that will guide your way

If you will learn to begin to trust the voice within

 

11. Ziggy Marley – Love is My Religion

Lyrics: Well I’m done searching now,

I found out what this life is worth

Not in the books that I find,

But by searching my mind

I don’t condemn, I don’t convert

This is the calling have you heard,

Bring all the lovers to the fold

No one is gonna lose their soul

 

12. The Beatles – Let it Be

Lyrics: And when the broken hearted people living in the world agree

There will be an answer, let it be

For though they may be parted, there is still a chance that they will see

There will be an answer, let it be

 

13. Martika – Love… Thy Will Be Done

Lyrics: No longer can I resist the guiding light

The light that gives me power to keep up the fight

Love, thy will be done

Since I have found you my life has just begun

And I see all of your creations as one

Perfect complex

No one less beautiful

Or more special than the next

We are all blessed and so wise to accept

Thy will, love, be done

 

14. Katrina and The Waves – Walking on Sunshine

Lyrics: I’m walking on sunshine

I’m walking on sunshine

I’m walking on sunshine

And don’t it feel good

 

15. John Lennon – Imagine

Lyrics: You may say I’m a dreamer

But I’m not the only one

I hope some day you’ll join us

And the world will be as one
