It says on here that I will receive "a chorus of answers." Lets test that out. Can you answer this question with a song that is often used to inspire people?

Asked by ucme (50037points) January 23rd, 2010

An anthem maybe or any song played at say a celebration or a special event.

That’s what I love about fluther the pokemon song & hail to the chief in close proximity,if not harmony. The contrast does not go unnoticed. Brilliant.

Republican candidates often speak after Lee Greenwood has warmed the crowd up with I’m proud to be an American.

Democratic candidate Bill Clinton used song Don’t Stop Believin’.

The crowds at Fenway can get pumped when Johnathan Papelbon runs in from the bullpen in the top of the 9th to the Dropkick Murphys Shippin’ Up to Boston.

@stranger_in_a_strange_land: There seem to be many variations and extra verses. Arlo has a better voice than his dad, also.

Here is one in Welsh; don’t you love it?

Mae’n wlad i mi ac mae’n wlad i tithau,
O gopa’r Wyddfa i lawr i’w thraethau,
O’r De i’r Gogledd, o Fôn i Fynwy.
Mae’r wlad hon yn eiddo i ti a mi.

Free Bird. But only this version.

You have to know your crowd. “God Bless America” will do it for some, and “Blowin’ in the Wind” will do it for others.

Kinda wonderful. After the changeover, they stuck the Xhosa/Zulu/Sesotho verses
in front of the Afrikaans/English verses. Plus, very stirring, I think.

@andrew I have to run a virus check any time that band is mentioned.

I’m not sure if it is used often, if ever, but I find The End is Here by Alter Bridge to be inspirational, and one of my favourite songs of all time.
