I love powerful songs about survival or even songs that just sound like they're about survival..you know,..getting through tough times and stuff. Here's one of my favorites.

I thought it would be a cool thing if people can share their own favorite survival songs here. Doesn't have to fit any requirements,..just one of those songs that gets you through the day/night.

Nice \:\)

One song I've been recently enamored with is Queen's "We Are The Champions"

Spot the first verse especially:

I've paid my dues -
Time after time -
I've done my sentence
But committed no crime -
And bad mistakes
I've made a few
I've had my share of sand kicked in my face -
But I've come through

We gotta get out of this place
If it's the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
'cause girl, there's a better life for me and you

YEAH! You guys know what I'm talkin about! We're off to an awsome start! I'm writing these down. Have to admit part of my motive for this thread was selfish..I want to work on my playlist of good tunes for getting me through rough times.

I definitely recommend having something like that. Music is one of the most healing things in my life right now.

Tommy is an all time favorite rock opera, so much in common with csa its hard to dismiss the similarities. For years I was deaf, dumb, & blind.

Black Bird by the Beatles

great song i think its really about the civil rights movement but i guess the civil rights movement is about surviving and overcoming our pasts just as much as the issues we deal with.

Wow! Good one tk! I never would have thought of that one, but "take these broken wings and learn to fly"..that's about as survival as it gets!

I remember a hippie when I was a kid who played that song in church. He made a point of saying who wrote it after he performed it because a lot of people in the congregation considered rock and roll to be devil music.

I liked that guy for playing that...he kind of disappointed me later by ODing in church, but I don't hold that against him any more. I love that song though.
