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”

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

16)  Elvis Presley  ~  “Let Yourself Go”
