Sugarland's Stay used to kill me.
Now, meh, nothing but a song.
I started to play songs that bothered me over and over. Turn them up loud and let them play.
It took away the pain from them.

I am lucky in this regard, as AP has terrible taste in music. Dark, depressing stuff - all chosen to make her look more intelligent and interesting than she actually is. She can take Tom Waits and stick him you know where! It is actually a joke between us now. . . I mean, this is a woman who prided herself on liking whiskey and Tom Waits. This was a "catch?" Jesus.
She and my H shared songs, but not so much in their meanings, but just music they liked. I haven't asked which songs he sent her, and I don't think I want to know. I am sure many of them are songs we shared. And in return, I think he liked very little of what she sent to him.

Bionicgal, I had to laugh when I read your Tom Waits reference because there's a song he sings that is so A related and sad and I love it. Others make me gag but for some reason I can listen to that one. It's called Poncho's Lament.

I don't know if anyone else had this reaction, but I found SO many trigger songs in my music library (I'll third Bryan Adam's "Run To You") I took all my CDs to a used bookstore and sold them. I dont listen to much music anymore (too much noise in my head) but if i do, it has to be Jazz, Classical, or Opera. Pandora is helpful.

It helps a bit that W'S ring tone right now is "You Lie" by the Band Perry.
Mine for him was "I'm Hard to Love" by Lee Brice

I had to google Run To You by Bryan Adams...(gag)...what a horrible song. I have to second Say Something. It reminds me of how I felt when I had no idea what was eating away at my husband. I also think of him when I hear Lee Brice's Hard to Love.
