      Hi,

      The song that inspire me is: Die Krupps - Alive.

      I'm sure that not much people who know that song, so I'm posting the lyrics. Maybe, it will inspire you too.

      Where's the hand that guided me
      my cry within me is let me be
      crossing the endless seas of pain
      fighting against torrential rain
      it seems pain is the experience in life
      I'm sorely
      tried by affliction in my life
      I have to master this impossible situation
      this driving force is my salvation

      The world in my arms - I'm alive
      Love is pain, pain is strife
      In my world - I'm alive
      and I can't see danger - anymore

      This driving force sets me in strife
      that driving force that's in my life
      Whatever the pain is - I must survive
      determination keeps me alive
      this extreme situation makes me realize - I'm alive
      it makes me realize it changed my life
      Hope is the hand that guided me
      secured by the hand that set me free.

      I think the lyrics can refer to us, netmarketer. Sometime, we have to go through impossible situations and determination keep us alive. It change our life and we need a guided hands. Just my thoughts. Does it make sense?

      Have a good day or evening.

      Hello Thomas,

      Who sang this song?

    Kumar - from wikipedia:

    Row, Row, Row Your Boat" is an English nursery rhyme, and a popular children's song/proverb, often sung as a round. It can also be an 'action' nursery rhyme where singers sit opposite one another and 'row' forwards and backwards with joined hands. The tune is credited to Eliphalet Oram Lyte in the publication The Franklin Square Song Collection (1881, New York) which also indicates that he adapted the lyric

    All RNB songs, from Usher especially. Oh, and I'm ashamed to say this, but I need JPop and Bollywood songs to keep me awake while I'm working.

      Hey Najmi,

      Seeing a mention of Bollywood songs in this forum is a pleasant surprise! Do you have any particular favourites? I love Kishore Kumar's songs and Jagjit Singh's ghazals

    I'll prefer musics..
    Like, "Chariots of Fire" and The Rocky Theme, "Eye of Eagle"..
    I believe that when anyone hear these musics, they will fire up their drive and
    motivation that keeps them going..

    I've noticed that it isn't necessarily a certain song that inspires me, but more the mood that certain songs put me in, giving me motivation and inspiration.

      Here's the thing. I'm going to share with you a few of my favourites, however when I was talking with a friend of mine recently about this very topic, he made a profound statement. He said, "an inspirational song is most powerful if you listen to it when you are down and need it the most". It's true. An inspirational song can lift you when you are already up, though it's the times when you are down and the last thing that you want to do is face reality that you really should listen to it.

      And if you want a real reality check, get an inspirational song and look yourself in the eye in a mirror while you listen to it!

      Everyone's songs are going to be different. As long as the music lifts you up!

      Here's my suggestions anyway:

      Lee Ann Womack "I hope you dance"

      Tim McGraw "Like you were dying"

      John Farnham and Olivia Newton John (Sydney 2000 Olympics) "Dare to dream"

      If it makes your spine tingle... that's the one!

    This was exactly what I was looking for. Want something in the morning besides the Rocky Theme! Cant believe I forgot "Dont Worry, Be Happy", "Chariots of Fire", and I'll definitely be looking at "My Way", and "How Deep is Your Love" in profoundly different ways going forward. Two that I would add that float my boat.

    I'm trying to find the best way to deal with content that currently appears on every product page of an ecommerce site. The content is for shipping information and it comes up as a lightbox when a link is clicked. However, the content of the lightbox is part of the html on each page. (I think it's using javascript to generate the popup when someone clicks on the link.) Duplicate content testing sites are identifying it as duplicate content. I would like to tell googlebots to only look at it in one area to make sure it's not counted as duplicate content. Ideally, I'd like something similar to a canonical tag that can be used for only a portion of a page. I do not want to block or hide the content as this article indicates google doesn't approve of that: https://support.google.com/webmaster...er/66359?hl=en I also want to keep using the lightbox so users stay on the product page.
