Post Favorite MT uplifting anthems
For me, the be-all end-all anthems that lift you up when you're maybe not in the best mood are a tie between "Climb Every Mountain" and "You'll Never Walk Alone". Nothing gets me out of a funk like an R&H song. What about the rest of you?

It may be a little cliché and overplayed, but for me, it'd have to be 'Defying Gravity' from Wicked.

It never fails to get me feeling determined and hopeful again.

The very end of RENT is very uplifting.

"As We Stumble Along" is funny and uplifting.

I agree with Rent:
"There's only now. There's only here. Give in to love. Or live in fear. No other path. No other way. No day but today."
I also agree about "Defying Gravity." I feel so determined every time I listen to it.
