I'm feeling some covers tonight. smile

Annie Lennox - Don't let it bring you down (Neil Young cover)
Haunting, but beautiful.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1x6u1rkxS4

Emiliana Torrini - White Rabbit (Jefferson Airplane cover)
The best cover of White Rabbit I've ever heard.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3XIxaEuXKec

Tom Waits - Time (Not a cover, but there is a wonderful cover of it by Tori Amos)
If you only have time to listen to one of these three songs, make it this one. Seriously.

*****WARNING: POSSIBLE TRIGGERS**********
This is a very emotionally powerful music video by Genesis, with Phil Collins lead singing.

Paul McCartney's "Don't Let It Bring You Down" sounds right on point. Takes about a minute to crank up, though. (I might have posted the lyrics before, but here's the YouTube link.)

Ac-cent-tchu-ate the positive!

You've got to accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between

You've got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minimum
Have faith or pandemonium
Liable to walk upon the scene

when the dog bites.
when the bee stings.
when i'm feeling sad.
i simply remember my favourite things,
and then i don't feel so bad.

Thanks Victor, UnhappyCamper, and Jude for your posts. I haven't been on here in a while, but have been listening to two of my favorite songs tonight from one of the greatest bands (in my opinion). I had previously posted the first song but that link is broken now so I'm reposting it.

1. Storms-Fleetwood Mac

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3ALI_8i45g

2. Landslide-Fleetwood Mac (I like the original studio version from the 70s the best)

I love the words of this song it really hits home for me and makes me think.The video is very real for me about the darkness that lives in side, that running is not the way but acceptance of the passed good or bad we can then heal.
I hope you enjoy!! smile


BASTILLE : POMPEII
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F90Cw4l-8NY

I was left to my own devices
Many days fell away with nothing to show

And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city that we love
Grey clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
You've been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

We were caught up and lost in all of our vices
In your pose as the dust settled around us

And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city that we love
Grey clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
You've been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
If you close your eyes

Eh-eh-o eh-o [8x]

Oh where do we begin?
The rubble or our sins?
Oh oh where do we begin?
The rubble or our sins?

And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city that we love
Grey clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
You've been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

If you close your eyes, does it almost feel like nothing

You'll never understand until you've been there.
Been down so much, that all you can manage to do now is sit there.
Thinking back at all the choices that you made to get there.
Pumping a fist to the sky telling god "it ain't fair."
But yo, we ain't there.
How could it be with all this devastation and desperation surrounding me.
So put me in the ground 'cause this life has just been pounded out of me,
The only reason I ain't sleeping now 'cause I got mouths to feed.
Why can't I catch a break?
Why can't I step away and wake up one morning and think that things wont be a mess today.
I gotta break the cycle somehow,
sick of this pain, im sick of living this way.
Okay, I'm done now.
Not having fun now, there's just so many reasons.
Feel as if my soul's a broken puzzle and I'm missing pieces.
It's real easy for you to judge them when you see them,
But you'll never truly understand unless you've ever been there.
I've been there, a place where hope was thin in the air.
If things are gonna get better tell me a 'when' and a 'where'.
Sitting and staring in the mirror, nobody's there,
That I know, feeling so alone and I'm scared that nobody cares.
My nights consist of so many prayers.
I once had so many dreams, I once was going somewhere.
Try and following steps before you start to compare,
Me to you and you don't know me, now you think that that's fair?
I never thought my path would lead me to the point I'm at now.
But before they get up, some people gotta fall down.
Some fall harder than others, they thought they had it all down.
Me, I take these experience and jot them all down.
But how do you cope when you think that hope is nowhere around?
How do you know where to go if you haven't been found?
Yo, I'm saying it's draining living this pain that I'm in.
You're quick to judge me but you haven't been the places I've been, c'mon.

My heart will never feel
Will never see
Will never know
Oh, heart
And then it falls
And then I fall
And then I know

My heart will never feel
Will never see
Will never know
Home and I know
Playing the deck above
It’s always different
I am the one in love

This is a newer song out on the radio now, and it's a beautiful song with a great, uplifting message. I know there are a lot of guys here who feel less than adequate due to the side effects of the abuse. Hopefully you have some people in your lives that do love you unconditionally, and you should all know that there are many guys on here that truly believe these lyrics about their fellow survivors.

Katy Perry-Unconditionally (not your typical Katy Perry song...also, you need to wait for the 15-second ad)
