Best songs for strength and for mourning/painPage 11 of 13    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13)

CD 2 - this CD is the one that energizes and strengthens the heart, perhaps slamming the other person or giving hope for the future (the classic "I Will Survive" by A. Franklin is tops, "You're Toxic" Brittney Spears, "Mrs. Independent" Kelli Clarkson, etc.).


1. You make me sick by PINK
2. Single Ladies (put a ring on it) by Beyonce

(its still early in the morning here..I'll be more creative AFTER my morning coffee) lol

Man....There are so many songs that I can relate to. What's forever for by Michael Martin Murphy, Blue mist by Mama's pride,[Local St Louis band] Good luck finding it.
Took me forever but I found it. Austin by Blake Shelton. Time for me to fly by REO Speedwagon,
BLUE MIST

STANDIN' ON A BUS LINE, WAITING FOR THE NUMBER 39
TO TAKE ME HOME FOR THE LAST TIME

HOPING FOR THE MORNING RAIN TO FALL UPON MY FACE
SO THAT IT WILL ERASE THE TEARDROPS FROM MY EYES

(CHORUS)
THERE'S A BLUE MIST, IN THE AIR
AND THERE'S A FEELIN IN MY HEART THAT I CAN'T SHARE
AND THERE'S A TEARDROP, RUNNIN' DOWN MY CHEEK
AND I CAN'T EVEN SPEAK WHEN I THINK OF YOU

WE WERE BROUGHT TOGETHER, BECAUSE OF STORMY WEATHER
'CAUSE WHEN THE WEATHER GOT BETTER AND THE SUN CAME,
YOU WERE GONE

NOW, YOU COULD NEVER MAKE IT, BECAUSE YOU TRIED TO FAKE IT
THEN LET A STRANGER COME AND TAKE IT ALL AWAY

NOW I CAN LIVE WITHOUT YOU, THOUGH I'LL OFTEN THINK ABOUT YOU
AND WONDER WHAT HAD HAPPENED HAD YOU TRIED
NOW YOU CAN LIVE WITHOUT ME, I KNOW THIS TO BE TRUE
SO I'M GIVIN THIS SONG TO YOU TO HURT YOUR PRIDE

(CHORUS)

"You're a Big Girl Now" - Bob Dylan. It's seen me through break-ups for 30 years:

Our conversation was short and sweet,
It nearly swept me off of my feet.
And I'm back in the rain,
Oh, and you are on dry land.
You made it there somehow,
You're a big girl now.

Bird on the horizon
Sittin' on a fence.
He's singing a song for me
At his own expense.
And I'm just like that bird,
Oh, singing just for you
I hope that you can hear,
Hear me singing through these tears.

Time is a jet plane,
It moves too fast.
Oh, but what a shame
That all we've shared can't last.
I can change I swear
Oh, see what you can do,
I can make it through,
You can make it too.

Love is so simple,
To coin a phrase
You've known it all at times,
I'm learning it these days.
Oh, I know that I can find you in somebody's room
It's a price I have to pay
You're a big girl all the way.

A change in the weather
Is known to be extreme,
But what's the sense of changing horses in mid-stream?
I'm going out of my mind,
Oh, with a pain that stops and starts
Like a corkscrew to my heart
Ever since we've been apart.

I've Got Dreams, Dreams to Remember" By Otis Redding

By far one of his best, I treid to find a link on you tube, but all versions were covers. Try to listen to the Otis Redding original if possible. It is also on the sound track "Dream A little Dream"

Tool: Parabol and Parabola

So familiar and overwhelmingly warm
This one, this form I hold now.
Embracing you, this reality here,
This one, this form I hold now, so
Wide eyed and hopeful.
Wide eyed and hopefully wild.

We barely remember what came before this precious moment,
Choosing to be here right now. Hold on, stay inside...
This body holding me, reminding me that I am not alone in
This body makes me feel eternal. All this pain is an illusion.

We barely remember who or what came before this precious moment,
We are choosing to be here right now. Hold on, stay inside
This holy reality, this holy experience.
Choosing to be here in

This body. This body holding me. Be my reminder here that I am not alone in
This body, this body holding me, feeling eternal
All this pain is an illusion.

Alive, I

In this holy reality, in this holy experience. Choosing to be here in

This body. This body holding me. Be my reminder here that I am not alone in
This body, this body holding me, feeling eternal
All this pain is an illusion.

Twirling round with this familiar parabol.
Spinning, weaving round each new experience.
Recognize this as a holy gift and celebrate this chance to be alive and breathing.

This body holding me reminds me of my own mortality.
Embrace this moment. Remember. we are eternal.
All this pain is an illusion.

Not sure if anyone mentioned this yet, but when I'm down, I usually play some George Clinton and P. Funk because...

well...

sometimes it takes the funk...

to get you out of a funk.

Ya dig?

I recommend "Dr. Funkenstein," "The Mothership Connection," or "Count Funkula."

It doesn't really have much to do with love, but it's the groove that heals.

Of course, if you wanted something a little more on topic, I'd also recommend "It takes a fool" by The Spinners.

For mourning and pain if you really want something that will make you cry listen to Vacccine by Paper Mache. They are an underground indie/folk band from spokane, washington. Awesome band and awesome guys in it.

For strength i would probably have to say Rewind by Deas Vail. Another indie band but from Arkansas and a little bigger than paper mache. They have some songs that will make you cry as well. And paper mache has some pick you up songs too.

Should be able to find both these on i-tunes if not i know they are on myspace. Check 'em out.

1. The Reason, Hoobastank.
My last girlfriend about 2yrs ago made me realize I needed to change. I realized I had to deal with the anger that culmulated throughout the years that dated back from knowing my two face aunt and uncle. There were certain things that triggered my anger, especially when people are in my face yelling at me by trying to make me feel small. And even trying to control on how I feel and that my feelings didn't matter; and even my opinions did not matter. I learnt no matter how much I tried to get my aunt to admit to her wrong doing she never will and pretended it never happened. I thought she would change but no. She will always hide behind the bible pretending she is a saint and use guilt on me. Still to this day behind my back she compares me to my mentally ill mom I thought awhile back she has stopped that but no. And that I will become like her. Even a few months ago I told her where to go she now labeled me as mentally ill as my mom. So without my aunt in my life and in my mind I have been feeling alot better (except now since I wrote about her)

2. Puddle of Mudd- She fackin Hates Me
this goes out to my ex gf of two years ago who loved me but for some reason runs away but since this summer I think she really hates me. But a part of me thinks she doesn't hate me, weird to think that I guess but oh well.
