This week many people are honoring what would have been Freddie Mercury’s 65th birthday.  It seemed appropriate then, to pick one of the greatest inspirational rock anthems of all time.  This song exhibits all of the emotion and character of Queen’s music, and I hope it picks you up because we ARE the champions!!

I’ve paid my dues
Time after time
I’ve done my sentence
But committed no crime
And bad mistakes
I’ve made a few
and I’ve had my share of sand
Kicked in my face
But I’ve come through
And I need to go on and on and on and on

We are the champions – my friends
And we’ll keep on fightin’ till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
‘Cause we are the champions of the world

I’ve taken my bows
And my curtain calls
You’ve brought me fame and fortune
And everything that goes with it
I thank you all
But it’s been no bed of roses no pleasure cruise
and I consider it a challenge before the whole human race
That I ain’t gonna lose
And I need to go on and on and on and on

We are the champions – my friends
And we’ll keep on fightin’ till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
‘Cause we are the champions of the world

This inspiring duet is all about how we can conquer anything through love!  It was written by Nick Ashford, who wrote numerous hit songs and sadly passed away this week.

Listen, baby
Ain’t no mountain high
Ain’t no vally low
Ain’t no river wide enough, baby

If you need me, call me
No matter where you are
No matter how far
Just call my name
I’ll be there in a hurry
You don’t have to worry

‘Cause baby,
There ain’t no mountain high enough
Ain’t no valley low enough
Ain’t no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you

Remember the day
I set you free
I told you
You could always count on me
From that day on I made a vow
I’ll be there when you want me
Some way, some how

‘Cause baby,

No wind, no rain

My love is alive
Way down in my heart
Although we are miles apart
If you ever need a helping hand
I’ll be there on the double
As fast as I can

Don’t you know that
There ain’t no mountain high enough
Ain’t no valley low enough
Ain’t no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you

Free Man – Angie Aparo

Angie Aparo is one of the most sadly overlooked artists of the 2000s, seeing success only when Faith Hill made his song “Cry” a hit.  This song is one of his most inspirational, channeling the relief that comes from living life and loving others with no boundaries.

Hey wouldn’t you wanna know
Everywhere that river flows to right now
I can show you how
’cause someday you might wanna go
Someday you got nothing to show
For all your pain
For all your chains
I ain’t saying it’s the only way
But wouldn’t you like to know

How if feels to live
Like a free man
To give
When there’s nothing in your hand
Run like only the river can
Like a free man

You’ve only so many roads to choose
Sooner or later the ones you use
They all look the same
Someday you might feel the need
Someday when you’re tired of bleeding
For someone else
You’re gonna want it for yourself
I ain’t saying it’s the only way
But wouldn’t you like to know
