Songs About "Yourself"

Boy, did I have a lot of songs to choose from with this topic! The number of songs with the word "Yourself" in their titles is staggering. Here are but a few of them. There'll be one more round of these next week, but that's all. Only the best for you, Dear Listener. Enjoy!  ~  JH



1)  Justin Bieber  ~  “Love Yourself”  (I know, I know...I'd pretty much sworn off posting any more Bieber songs since he's become such a joke. But I accidentally starting liking this song quite a bit BEFORE finding out Justin was its singer. So it was either I leave off an obviously good song, or own that junk and put it front and center. I chose the latter. On the plus side, Biebs does NOT appear in the video at all, so there's that.)




2)  David Bowie  ~  “Hang Onto Yourself”




3)  Jess Glynne  ~  “Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself”




4)  Daft Punk ft. Pharrell Williams & Nile Rodgers  ~  “Lose Yourself To Dance”

8)  Bob Marley & The Wailers  ~  “Lively Up Yourself”




9)  Birdy  ~  “Save Yourself”

11)  KRS-One ft. Big Daddy Kane, Freddie Foxxx, Harmony, Kid Capri, LL Cool J, MC Lyte, Ms. Melodie, Run-D.M.C. & Queen Latifah  ~  “Heal Yourself”




12)  Kylie Minogue  ~  “Put Yourself In My Place”




13)  Tower Of Power  ~  “Knock Yourself Out”




14)  Jack Garratt  ~  “Surprise Yourself”  (Why haven’t I heard of this guy before now? Because he’s uh…mazing!)




15)  Christina Grimmie  ~  “Get Yourself Together”  (Still hard to believe this talented young lady is gone. Too soon, too soon. #RIPChristina)




16)  Elvis Presley  ~  “Let Yourself Go”




17)  Kaleo  ~  “Save Yourself”  (Amazing live performance…from an ICEBERG! You can’t get much cooler than that! Pun probably intended.)
