Music Thread

I have been listening to a lot of music lately. Some has been encouraging me. Some has been depressing me.

I thought it would be interesting to create a thread for everyone to post a YouTube video of what you have been listening to lately. What has been getting you by?

As far as I'm concerned, anything goes. Speaking for myself, I'm open to anything. It doesn't necessarily have to be that "ray of sunshine" that gets you through the day. If it's the song that you cry to, share it. We all need a good cry every now and then.

This is therapy. Take advantage of it.

This is what I have been listening to today.. All Johnny Cash :) Love him!

I like it! I like the Names too. I say flip it - Cash Harrison :) Sounds Powerful!! back 17 yrs ago when we had our daughter if she was a boy, her name was going to be Ian Layne - Ian Ashbury (The Cult) Layne Staley (Alice in Chains) - but I think I like him better with Mad Season)

Elton John is one of my idols. The lyrics of 'Rocket Man' were intended to reflect the chaos of the entertainment industry and drug addiction. I heard a cover of the song from a band called Puscifer. (It's a project from the singer of Tool.) It comes from an album called 'The Heart is a Drum Machine'. The beat of the song is split between a heart monitor and a heartbeat. With it sung in a minor key, it took on a new meaning to me. It makes me think about pain, about where my head is when I'm on painkillers, and how mentally I'm just not here anymore.

Keith Anderson- Somedbody needs a hug, == while sometimes i sure feel like i could use one, this song just sounds fun too... Hope you guys ENJOY!!

Hey Twitch......

GREAT TOPIC!!!!!!! THANKS!

Love your boys name!!!!

I am not good at cutting and pasting or whatever the heck it is called so i will just tell you what artists/songs i like and helps me (at time)...truth be told....somedays....not much soothes my body or soul.

I listen to Van Morrison a lot....."full Force Gale" I find so uplifting...along with many of his others.

Gloria Estaphan.."Coming Out of The Dark"...awesome.

My husband is a musician for passion..not a profession and he is involved with this site called....KOMPOZ....folks from all over collaberate music...it is pretty cool.

For me, when my eyes are co-operating ..I like to read...I also knit...just for mindless relaxation...I only know one stitch and can only make 2 things!!! But it is my therapy....I zone out while doing it.

Another thing I do to zone out and try to keep my mind busy and off myself is color with colored pencils...The one I have now is called...."HIDDEN TRANSFORMATIONS".....it is detailed and not like a kids coloring book..if that makes sense??

Oh..another song that I love is by Keith Urban.."Gods Been Good To Me"....I really am not a country music gal...but Keith is great, in my book!!

Sorry guys for my rambings!!!!

You folks are the best, ya know that?????

Peace,

Lori

I don't know why but today my day has been this type of dayhttp://youtu.be/j5-yKhDd64s?hd=1

I have to admit I like most of Slim Shady's music :) vulgar or not . lol.

I'm a huge Days of the New fan. wish they were still together... but as with most of the music I love - the band breaks up or someone passes. If you really listen to this song, hear Travis Meeks electric vocals, you will understand why I love them. Weapon and the Wound is also one of my favorites. Alas, I've chosen - Die Born Enjoy and let me know what you think

I've been listening to this album for like a month straight now :) Somehow most of it seems to relate to having chiari

Spotify link: LIGHTS – The Listening

first track on the album :

Appropriate I think for the ones that mean the most to us........ Though I have never purchased her music, I will give her her dues....... She had a beautifully amazing and powerful voice. I will be honest and say I probably slow danced to a song or two of hers at some high school dances :) RIP Ms. Houston.

I like some of System's music.

How about this......... I replayed this one in the truck a few times today :) until my husband said -- not again! lmao

This is a great idea about the music thread. I rely on music to get me through my day. I listen to this song alot. yes i know it doesnt completely pertain to us but i feel we are constantly fighting some kind of battle in our daily living. And for that i think of us as Soldiers. Hope you like it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMbXnSwAQWQ&hd=1

DMB is from Charlottesville Va. 45 min from my house. They give free concerts all the time. I love it when DM play a small part in movies as someone totally oposite his personality.....He is so funny!!!! We are allowed to have secret pleasures!!!! Mine is Queen.... can't help it I love their stage shows and videos & of course Freddie Mercury was a true Gift !!! I saw Maroon Five, Train & Gavin Mc Graw & now I am a huge Train & Adam Levine fan....

My music depends alot on my mood or hurting. Normally I listen to country and classic rock.

I've got into 2 groups that really is not my normal type of music because I do not do rap. Sgt Dunson and Soldier Hard.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MWrAunJkaE This one listen to the lyrics really closely and you'll understand it. This is how alot of us feel and he does not sugar coat it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oV_dJ62hmzg&feature=related This one is hard for me to listen to.

I really miss you & Hope you are well & happy !!!
