    I love a lot of music, but the music that has inspired me throughout my life has been music from the theatre world. Les Miserables is so incredibly inspiring to me I could cry every time I hear the soundtrack. The Beatles has inspired me for sure: Let It Be is an anthem for me. And Cat Stevens' rendition of the hymn Morning Has Broken is another anthem. I've left instructions to play it at my funeral.

    Yes, I think it was Amazon Prime where I saw it. Technically I believe the film is quite creative in showing events from two different perspectives. The tension felt by characters is memorable. The theme of redemption is truly inspirational, as well as the organ music.

    What about the film did you consider inspirational?

    It was moving hoe the lead character had to to ingratiate himself back into society after his prison time. He was a sympathetic character.

    I like a very wide variety of music from classical to semi-hard rock. As I age, I seem to be finding a "middle ground" of not too hard, not too soft. LOL.

    Love the Beatles, John Denver - I have always found them to be very inspirational. After the CT school shooting, I found this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIuy1a9IdHk - again, makes me feel I can effect change starting with myself; person-to-person.

    One of my children has been following BTS (Korean K-pop) from their beginnings and now has me listening. Even though I have to go find translations, I find their music good and their lyrics very inspirational.
