Songfacts.com has created a comprehensive list of songs that were inspired by the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. The artists come from all different walks of life. New artists, classic “oldies”, country stars, rock n’ rollers, and even hip-hop stars all make the list. These groups may appear different on the outside but they all have one thing in common, a love and respect for America, its culture, and its people. Some songs are extremely straightforward with their subject matter, such as the “9/11 Memorial Song” by Madoo. Others are more subtle, such as “World on Fire” by Sarah McLachlan.
Regardless of your musical tastes there is a song for you!
