    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.

    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.

    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..

    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
