Here is one song that is ringing in my head these days:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0deFJmhN--A

Shadowland - Lostboy!AKA Jim Kerr

Out in the back woods, out from the main,
Once you've been there is no turning back again.
Wrapped up in silver, dressed up in gold,
Now is the time that your story can be told.
Come to me walk out of the shadow.
Sing to me, give me words I should know.

Some play the wild card, some play the game,
Once you've surrendered there's no turning back again.

Come to me walk out of the shadow.
Sing to me, give me words I should know.

Turn to me walk out of the shadow.
Sing to me, tell me words I should know.

Don't send it all away, such a special day.
On your special day.

Come to me walk out of the shadows,
Whisper to me, tell me words I should know.

Come to me walk out of the shadow.
Sing to me, tell me words I should know.
Come to me walk out of the shadow.
Whipser to me, tell me words I should know.

Sing to me tell me words I should know.
On your special day,
Such a special day.

Hi jj78,
for me music has healing power and without it life would be miserable. One more song came to my mind and I wish to share it with my fellows survivors:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=trda5nHIZLo

Fix You - Coldplay
When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down on your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down on your face
And I...

Tears stream down on your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down on your face
And I...

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Heather Nova songs:

Heal

This one is one of the best, but the quality is kinda poor.


Blue Black

2nd one is a little darker and can trigger but is positive over all.


A Way to Live

Name says it all.

It's all good so long as it makes me feel better. I've never really thought of any music I listen to as being particularly good for survivors, but after thinking about it some I realized that John and Julian Lennon's first albums both seem to speak to me for some reason.

I've noticed that besides songs with depressing lyrics, listening to bootlegs also seem to make me feel better when I'm upset. I have 3 in my collection so far. A 1975 John Lennon record called The John Lennon Telecasts, a 1989 or 1990 Paul McCartney record called And All The Rest, and another that I'll mention in a moment since it's on the turntable right now. I like how much more real they are than official studio releases. You can feel the raw energy and the artists emotions so much better when listening to incomplete or complete but unpolished versions of a song you like, and hearing them talk or argue about a song between takes is cool. Right now I'm listening to a 1969 Beatle bootleg called In A Play Anyway. Let It Be and Abbey Road were still works in progress. It beats the hell out of volume 3 of the Beatles Anthology. If any Beatle fans here ever come across this record don't hesitate to buy it.

Sometimes just some plain instrumental music with no lyrics can feel good. I have a few instrumental albums. I have one from 1970 or 71 called Switched On Bach. It's nothing special, just the music played on a melatron or a synthecisor. I have a Ravi Shankar record that I can't remember the name of right now. I have three instrumental albums of Beatles music. Volume 1 and 3 of the Hollyridge Strings albums and Chet Atkins Picks On The Beatles. So far I've enjoyed all of them.

I'm listening to the Wilburys right now. I just felt like commenting on how good the last track on side one feels. Not Alone Anymore. I believe it's the last song Roy Orbison wrote before he died. I don't really know what to say beyond the fact that it just feels good. Now that I think about it, the end of side 2 feels almost as good. End of the Line. I don't know which of them wrote it but it's a good end for the album.

I like the song from MGMT " kids" .
The video could use a switch. Scared the poor little guy.
Often when i am driving in my car ...i will change the lyrics
to what fits me. Shouting out famliy names, what i would like
to do to them! What i like ,, what i dont! It helps , i find
it takes the edge off!
Last night a friend and i went to a bar and to sing karoake.
I sang " Wonderful" by Everclear. It is joyous tune for little
boys.
Yeah, it was nice to sing this - put a smile both inside and out:)
