I do not listen to music often, but sometimes, I just need songs I can relate too.

I love all music.

Right now, I listen to:
Last Call - Lee Ann Womack
Repeat - David Guetta ft. Jessie J
Whatever It Takes - Lifehouse

What do you listen to when you need something that translates to what you are feeling and going through?

Pink Floyd- Fearless
Govt. Mule- Banks of the Deep End
Widespread Panic- Pleas

These are some of my regular go to's. I cant listen to any of them without crying but they usually give me the strength to keep going

Songs that have helped me/that I have related to:

The Cave - Mumford and Sons
I Won't Give Up - Jason Mraz
Always - Switchfoot (This one has to do with the day of my son's birth. He is an OC, and I didn't find out until he was 7. This song helped me feel like that day was special again.)

I have a handful of songs that I relate to...

Wide Awake- Katy Perry (is also my phone ringtone)

Gives You Hell - All American Rejects (this is the #1 song I listen to when I'm angry about the A)

Giddy On Up - Laura Bell Bundy (I listen to this one when I feel like I want revenge)

Gotta Be Somebody - Nickelback (when I'm feeling a little down and need a pick-up)

Then, there's a couple I listen to when I'm feeling good about where things are at with me and my FWH...

Feeling Way Too Damn Good - Nickelback

Love You Like A Love Song - Selena Gomez (sorry, I have a young daughter that watches a lot of Disney lol)

I could go on all day...every song I hear means something different to me now...

Whatever it takes-Lifehouse
Broken-Lifehouse
Foolish-Ashanti

My husband sent me the song, Hard to Love, from Lee Brice. Which is perfect for a situation like this. So I sent him one back...Don't Cha Wish Your Girlfriend Was Hot Like Me from the Pussy Cat Dollls. He didn't think it was as funny as I did though.

Scubachick,

I really like Foolish, but I dislike the artist, wish someone would be a killer cover..!

Before I was even aware of my WH 4 year A he gave me a song that has stuck in my heart. I have repeatedly asked him why he did this. At the time, his A was pretty much over and he was struggling to come to grips with what he had done and how he knew this would hurt me. He was a mess and the song was his way of telling me how badly he screwed up

And my favorite song from my Favorite band of all time
Heaven~ Warrant.
DH gave me tickets to a Warrant concert for my birthday, after we had filed for divorce. I asked him if I could give him a hug to thank him, next thing we both knew we were on the kitchen floor naked...and as they say, the rest is history. lol


Me~40

Schilling,
I accidentally stumbled across that song on Pandora. It was on a channel from another artist I stumbled across Ingrid Michaelson. Yeah I know listening to some mellow female singers isn't very manly, but it really has helped with this whole situation.

Ingrid Michaelson also has an excellent song called "Be OK" which I think is the song that made me add her as a station.

When I need to be powered up especially when I'm feeling down I have come across Keyshia Cole her whole album titled woman to woman http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4eis_coNzo&list=PL2Ue8Sk0l8MwtGp2n7KZk0ykF3RNd8Fmz

a lot of keyshia cole's songs
trust & beleive
enough of no love
heaven sent

These are songs that when I get pissed or WH did something stupid or dribbled some stupid comment I play them over and over again.
