I SMILE in Spite of You (Week 30 – 2015)

Originally, I planned to do this week’s SMILE on a different topic, but I forgot I had plans this weekend, so I didn’t have as much time as I thought I did to look into things. Good thing I keep a few lists on standby! ^^ Since my friends were doing an activity today that required a lot of strength, I decided to showcase songs that are all about being stronger than the person or obstacle in your path. Enjoy!

First up is an obvious choice, Christina Aguilera‘s Fighter (lyrics). Christina has always been one of my top five favorite artists, and she continues to amaze me to this day. When I first watched this video and heard this song, everything about it was love at first sight: strong vocals, a powerful message, dark imagery… ^u^

Next up is Tori Kelly‘s Unbreakable Smile (lyrics). When I first saw this MV, I was really surprised. It’s so~ simple, and she looks like she’s just having so much fun in front of the camera. All that confidence really makes her song seem that much stronger.

Moving on, here’s Rachel Platten‘s Fight Song (lyrics). This is a song for when you need that pick me up, when you’ve been beaten down by the day and need motivation to get back up again. You can do it!

Lastly, Survivor‘s Eye of the Tiger (lyrics). I mean, come on, How could I not? ^^

What songs encourage you and give you strength? Leave them in a comment below, and be sure to include any suggestions you may have for a future SMILE!
