Depends if I want to cheer up or feel sad. Sometimes it is important to feel sad.

To feel sad:
Lonesome Loser by Little River Band. It does seem like my theme song.
Storybook Love by Mark Knopfler from Princess Bride.
Lead Me On by Maxine Nightingale.
Vincent by Don Mclean.

To cheer up:
Strokin by Clarence Carter.
Long Way From Home by Glenn Kaiser. I want it played at my funeral. It is just so beautiful.
I've Got a Name by Jim Croce.
That Where I am You may Also Be by Rich Mullins. It leaves me in tears, but it still cheers me up.
Are You Drinking With Me Jesus by Mojo Nixon and Jello Biafra.

I have odd Eclectic tastes.

ok- this may seem gay - but i am

n so really the hopeless feeling - and the urgency to find something to snap out of it -

definitely guided by some musicals lyrics -

ie: these are a few of my favorite things -!

When I'm sad and wanna feel sad I listen to Simon and Garfunkel:

Sounds of Silence
Bridge Over Troubled Water
Only living boy in New York
Why don't you write me [nearly forgot that one]


I don't particularly like angry music. In my cd player at the moment: Rod Stewart.

For me blues music does it every time. One of my favorites is Son House, whom I knew when I was a kid, and Muddy Waters is also great. The late great John Lee Hooker - wow, says it all. Many people think the blues is all sad music, but a lot of it is very positive and funny as hell too. It helps me to keep things in perspective.

the high point of all the gigs I've seen in 40 years was John Lee Hooker doing an open air gig on the Toronto waterfront, the man was the best.

Blues does the same for me, it takes me somewhere where I can escape. I just doesn't make me feel blue.

Demonboi & Charlie
I give in, I accept that I'm an old fart. I don't recognise any of those bands. \:D

To cheer myself up I play Tom Waits, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, J L Hooker and the Stones. Or just about anything from Kasabian to the Pogues !

Robbie Robertson, the track, Somewhere down that crazy river, is excellent, the whole album is.

Amused to death - Roger Waters
Hearts of space, got most of them
Early Genesis
Sounds of nature - relaxing
Schiller Lieben
LLewellyn place of apples - excellent stuff,

the list is endless,

I listen to this when I feel full of fear and "stuck". It speaks of courage and hope.


From the song The Rose:

It's the heart afraid of breaking
that never learns to dance
It's the dream afraid of waking
that never takes the chance
It's the one who won't be taken
who cannot seem to give
and the soul afraid of dying
that never learns to live

When the night has been too lonely
and the road has been too long
and you think that love is only
for the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter
far beneath the bitter snows
lies the seed
that with the sun's love
in the spring
becomes the rose

Sophiesdad

EDIT TO ADD THIS:

I have a movie that is my "fantasy" in a way. It's "Regarding Henry". Harrison Ford plays an attorney who suffers a trauma to the brain which leaves him completely in a state of amnesia. There are many times that I wish that I would be able to do that.... completely rebuild my life from scratch without the memories, the trauma, etc.

Music is my all time comforter, no matter what mood i can always find something to fit! I love classic rock, zeppelin is a definite favorite, but also jimi hendrix, doors, the who, janis joplin, so many others...
college friends got me into angry music, and i found the comfort in listening to it, plus i love the engy levels in seeing the live concerts, so much energy! some favs are NIN, Deftones, Pantera, Soulfly, Trail of Dead, Rollins Band, and WEEN!... adn the list goes on

but two ultimate favorites are TOOL and A PERFECT CIRCLE... seen them both a few times, and Maynard (lead singer/writer for both) is simply amazing... and i still think hes a survivor... read into the lyrics and you'll see what i mean....

then theres JAZZ and BLUES!!! gotta love em... coltrane, miles davis, thelonius monk, charlie parker, ella, and billie, and then into koko taylor, and buddy guy, and muddy, and john lee hooker, howlin wolf... stevie ray vaughn... oh the list goes on and on!!! hey i'm from chicago, how can i not LOVE the blues!
(and FELA KUTI, african jazz, incredible!)
then there the chill music like jam bands and fusions... like Soulive, and Karl Denson, galactic, victor wooten, tim reynolds, jazz mandolin project, modeski martin and wood...

Add some sou/R&B like AL GREEN, MARVIN GAYE, Otis Redding, teddy P,

and lately some Narah Jones, and Joss Stone (that girl can SING!) and ya, i could keep going and going and going... but this is getting long!! sorry bout that, i just LOVE MUSIc!!!!!!

peace,
cpt.

[3 Doors Down- This Time ]

Unsure of yourself
you stand divided now.
Which road will lead you there
Last time you fell and you hit hard
Your wounds have healed by now
But you still see your scars yeah

But it's not the way it use to be right now
You come so far to just let this go my friend
The same way you did the last time
You'll break when you fall
Don't make the same mistakes you did all over
You've got to believe in yourself this time

Live on, live it up today
This life's your cup
So drink it up I say, yeah
Say it's mine so give it all up to me now
And walk that line, don't let this go, don't go out the

Same way you did the last time
Your break when you fall
Don't make the same mistakes you did all over
You've got to believe in yourself this time

Life's your cup,
Drink it up
Life's your cup

The same way you did the last time
You'll break when you fall
Don't make the same mistakes you did all over
You got to believe in yourself this time

Artist: Rare Earth Lyrics
Song: I Just Want To Celebrate Lyrics

I just want to celebrate another day of livin'
I just want to celebrate another day of life
I put my faith in the people
But the people let me down
So I turned the other way
And I carry on, anyhow
That's why I'm telling you

I just want to celebrate, yeah, yeah
I just want to celebrate, yeah, yeah
Another day of living,
I just want to celebrate another day of life

Had my hand on the dollar bill
And the dollar bill blew away
But the sun is shining down on me
And it's here to stay
That's why I'm telling you

I just want to celebrate, yeah, yeah
Another day of living, yeah
I just want to celebrate another day of living
I just want to celebrate another day of life

Don't let it all get you down,
Don't let it turn you around and around
And around and around

Well, I can't be bothered with sorrow
And I can't be bothered with hate, no, no
I'm using up my time by feeling fine, every day
That's why I'm telling you I just want to celebrate
Aw, yeah
I just want to celebrate yeah yeah
Another day of living, yeah yeah
I just want to celebrate another day of livin', yeah
I just want to celebrate another day of life

Don't let it all get you down, no, no
Don't let it turn you around and around,
And around and around, and around
Around round round
'round and around round round round
don't go 'round

This is a big one today for me....

In My Daughters Eyes - Martina McBride.

In my daughter's eyes I am a hero
I am strong and wise and I know no fear
But the truth is plain to see
She was sent to rescue me
I see who I wanna be
In my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes everyone is equal
Darkness turns to light and the
world is at peace
This miracle God gave to me
gives me strength when I am weak
I find reason to believe
In my daughter's eyes

And when she wraps her hand
around my finger
Oh it puts a smile in my heart
Everything becomes a little clearer
I realize what life is all about

It's hangin' on when your heart
has had enough
It's giving more when you feel like giving up

I've seen the light
It's in my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes I can see the future
A reflection of who I am and what will be
Though she'll grow and someday leave
Maybe raise a family
When I'm gone I hope you see how happy
she made me
For I'll be there
In my daughter's eyes

Shes the only one who keeps me going sometimes.

I just noticed how big this topic is- I'm sure I repeated some songs already posted, but I know I'd have been dead or (more)insane years ago, were it not for music...

This is coming from an unrepentant blues fanatic, but I bet you guys would all like a blues musician most of you will not have heard of: Catfish Keith. He's an amazing acoustic and slide guitar player and all his CDs are just great.

Catch him on tour if you can, and you can get his CDs here.

Much love,
Larry

Metallica Until it sleeps

Where do I take this pain of mine
I run but it stays right by my side

So tear me open and pour me out
There's things inside that scream and shout
And the pain still hates me
So hold me until it sleeps

Just like the curse, just like the stray
You feed it once and now it stays
Now it stays

So tear me open but beware
There's things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me until I'm clean

It grips you so hold me
It stains you so hold me
It hates you so hold me
It holds you so hold me
Until it sleeps

So tell me why you've chosen me
Don't want your grip, don't want your greed
Don't want it

I'll tear me open make you gone
No more can you hurt anyone
And the fear still shakes me
So hold me, until it sleeps

It grips you so hold me
It stains you so hold me
It hates you so hold me
It holds you, holds you, holds you
until it sleeps (x4)

I Don't want it want it want it want it want it
No

So tear me open but beware
There's things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me 'til I'm clean

I'll tear me open make you gone
No longer will you hurt anyone
And the hate still shapes me
So hold me
until it sleeps
