Jane Says by Janes Addiction. It just puts me in my happy place.

So does Three Little Birds by Bob Marley.

” A whiter shade of pale ” By Procol Harum. way back in the 60s when I first met my wife at a party in NZ. Never ceases to put a smile on my face and it still gets airplay even today.
My current favorite is Harry Manx and the Blind Boys of Alabama, ” Sittin’ on Top of the World ”

We met at a party on Christmas Day and the record (look it up on google) they kept playing was ‘Strangers in the Night’. Our first date was a New Years Eve party where the song was also popular. We married on January 14 and as you can imagine after 3 weeks we were still pretty much strangers when that night began,

Today my song, the one that touches my soul, is ‘The Rose’

The Rose? Is that the one that goes? ” Some say love it is a feeling ”
Was Bette Middler in the movie?
We have the sound track on CD.

@mij That’s it To me no matter how hard life is

Just remember that in the winter, far beneath the bitter snow
Lies the seed, that with the suns love in the spring becomes the rose.

Many Rivers To Cross by Jimmy Cliff. It’s one of the most beautiful songs I’ve ever heard. Only Jimmy’s voice can really do it justice. It gives me goosebumps at times.

I Know You Rider. Mainly as performed by the Dead, but mainly by whatever band will play said song outside in the rain. This song moves me in a way no other song can.

Mhm. At the moment it’s probably either ‘Face the Music’ by Conjure One or ‘I Guess I’m Floating’ by M83 (or any other song off of that album for that matter)

The one song that seems to sum up the occurrences of my life and how I’ve tended to handle them is “It’s Only Life” by Kate Voegele. I listen to a tremendous amount of music, and the mood I’m in always influences my choice of song(s); however, this is one that no matter what I’m enduring good or bad it gives me that “I can handle this. I’ve done it before, I can do it again” kind of feeling. And I need that….

i really really like the song my rollercoaster by kimya dawson, and i feel like i can kind of relate to it, but not much unlike most people probably can. but today i was playing it on the way home, and my mum’s boyfriend who doesn’t even know me that well says “is this your theme song?” near the end of it. and i don’t know, it made me really happy haha. it’s such a feel good song, i like the idea of being associated with that, by people who hardly even know me.

oh, but moab by conor oberst just makes me feel really really good. i love road songs. there’s some other song on my mind that makes me feel almost like, invincible, but i can’t think of it right now.

Drive by Incubus.

Sometimes, I feel the fear of uncertainty stinging clear
And I can’t help but ask myself how much I let the fear
Take the wheel and steer
It’s driven me before
And it seems to have a vague, haunting mass appeal
But lately I’m beginning to find that I
Should be the one behind the wheel
