Every day it seems as if we are called on to be strong in one form or another. Whether it’s physical, mental or emotional, the challenge to be strong can be as simple as saying no to the second piece of pie or as profound as getting out of bed in the wake of personal tragedy.

No matter what level of endurance you have to tap into, here are five songs showcasing the words “strong” “stronger” or “strength” to help build your mindset.

“Strong Enough”—Sheryl Crow

Year: 1993

Key lyrics:

Nothing’s true and nothing’s right

So let me be alone tonight

‘Cause you can’t change the way I am

Are you strong enough to be my man

Reason to love: Off of her breakthrough album Tuesday Night Music Club, this simple country-tinged song makes you feel like hitting the open road with one of your girlfriends.  

“Stronger”—Britney Spears

Key lyrics:

I’m stronger than yesterday

Now it’s nothing but my way

My loneliness ain’t killing me no more

“Stronger”—Mary J. Blige

Year: 2009

Key lyrics:

They said we wouldn’t make it, but guess what? We made it

And we got them wondering how

You were always there for me, never been the one to hurt me

You gave me peace of mind

Reason to love: Although a little downbeat, this lesser-known tune is classic Mary J. Blige: all about the strength of loyalty and making it through hardship over time.


“A Little Bit Stronger”Sara Evans

Year: 2010

Key lyrics:

Riding in the car to work and I’m

Trying to ignore the hurt so I

Turned on the radio,

Stupid song made me think of you

I listened to it for a minute but then I changed it

I’m getting a little bit stronger

Reason to love: This soothing country song is perfect for anybody getting over an unhealthy relationship.

“Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” – Kelly Clarkson

What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter

Footsteps even lighter

Doesn’t mean I’m over ’cause you’re gone 

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stronger
