I'm putting together a play list for an event I'm doing in April next year, and would love suggestions for upbeat and inspirational tunes.

English or French language ok, bonus points if there is a 'united nations' element to the song.

Thanks :-) Reply to this

Absorbing life is the theme of this song - Senses Working Overtime by XTC.

And all the world is biscuit shaped,
it's just for me to feed my face,
and i can see, hear, smell, touch, taste,
and i've got one, two, three, four, five,
senses working overtime,
trying to take this all in,
i've got one, two, three, four, five,
senses working overtime,
trying to taste the difference,
'tween the lemons and limes,
the pain and the pleasure,
and the church bells softly chime


The link doesn't have any video, but it does have all of the words.

U2 have plenty of songs that could be here, I think the most inspirational is Pride (In the Name of Love).

One man come in the name of love
One man come and go
One man come, he to justify
One man to overthrow

In the name of love
One more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love?

One man caught on a barbed wire fence
One man he resist
One man washed on an empty beach
One man betrayed with a kiss

In the name of love
One more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love?

Early morning, April 4
Shot rings out in the Memphis sky
Free at last, they took your life
They could not take your pride

In the name of love
One more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love?
In the name of love
One more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love?
