The great part about music is that you can write a song about anything, but for this list we're ranking the best songs about healing. We've included multiple good versions of "Sexual Healing", and well as other tunes about being healed physically or emotionally. Do you have a favorite healing song? Whether it's rock, rap, country, or anything in between, we want you to vote up your favorites on this list of songs about being healed. You can even add additional tracks to the poll if any good healing songs are missing, so feel free to contribute to the list. We've included YouTube videos to accompany the songs when available, so think of this page as a healing songs playlist.

Some of the songs below include Sexual Healing by Sarah Connor, Healing to Suffer Again by Hatebreed, and Healing by Jagged Edge. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has healing in the title or lyrics, or some close variation of that word. Second, the song is conceptually about healing, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
