    Music Songs You Have a Personal Connection To

    Mine is obvious, but I'm curious as to what you all believe is your personal song. Details are encouraged!

    Songs You Have a Personal Connection To

    Weezer's "The Good Life" encouraged me to leave my ex after being unhappy for a long time. I was getting older and was tired of being unhappy. It hit me at a great time.

    Amazing what music can do for you. It can even evolve, break up songs can turn into songs that show you why ya care about someone

    Gotta go with midnight rider and wish you were here. Midnight rider fills me with optimism. Life is a journey and every day should be viewed as a gift. Live in the present. Wish you were here reminds me of my grandparents.

    Apocalyptica - I Don't Care. The song I listened to going through divorce.
    Conway Twitty - That's My Job. Reminds me of my dad.
    Whitesnake - Slide It In. That was the song playing when I first, well, slid it In.

    About a year of being divorced the song "Fine Again" by Seether made me feel like I was one the right track.

    His first time? Probably stopped about the time he realized what was happening.

    Oasis -Hey Now.

    It was what was playing the first time I experienced an acid peak.

    I wonder how many people have Pink Floyd as the answer to this question. Mine was Welcome to the Machine.

    More than a feeling-Boston. Listened to that album every morning my senior year. Also, a very good looking MaryAnn in my high school that I admired!

    Pink Floyd - Keep Talking

    It made a lonely high school life tolerable.

    So, this music ruled my world from 7th grade to 12th grade... Anyone want to find a bad song on any of these albums?

    Metallica's version of Breadfan. It was the first song 15 year old Drumhead ever heard live at a real concert before. I proceeded to lose my ****ing mind for the next two hours. Afterwords I got to go back stage and meet all of the bands, including Jerry Cantrell. Amazing night all around. I still get chills every single time i hear that opening riff.

    That's still one of my favorite Metallica songs, regardless of if it's there's or not. They knocked it out if the park.

    i've seen Pearl Jam live a bunch of times. its my Dad's birthday tomorrow.


    so he got me into the beatles...and i got him into pearl Jam...he's over 60. Made a good mix with a few songs from temple of the dog, few live, and i did it all through the free -youtube to mp3 converter....

    if i were to put the cd in my computer it would convert them into mp4s and be a part of my itunes library. its todays Napster...and actually can sound better than a lot of studio straight from the album songs sound.

    just google "youtube to mp3 converter", pick the first one, and you don't have to sign up or anything, just enter the youtube url..spits out an MP3.

    Here you me by Jimmy Eat World - this song was played at Dad's funeral, now nine years later I still burst into tears. My brothers and I agreed it really was how we felt about our dad.

    Tupac - How Long Will They Mourn Me. One of my best friends dying at an early age
    Third Eye Blind - Slow Motion. Eerie, creepy song that said friend liked.
    Godsmack - Go Away. Finally pushing away my first ex.
    Clapton - Wonderful Tonight. Wedding song

    There were complications after my daughter was born...long story short, due to some symtoms (some real and some mis-diagnosed) the doc told us to prepare for the worst (possible liver transplant among other things) I just kept staring at her in NICU...so little, so very little and helpless and there was nothing I could do. I couldn't even go in there. The first week of her life, I experienced agony that I didn't know existed...day and night.

    I got a call on a Thursday morning from the doc, telling us to get back to the hospital as soon as we could. Neither one of us said one word on the 18 minute car ride to the hospital. We sat down in the doc's office and while we were waiting for him I honestly felt like I was going to pass out. The doc sat down...looked us straight in the eyes, and smiled. He went on to inform us that they f'd up and my little girl was not only not going to need surgery, but she was perfectly healthy and we'd be taking her to her home in just a few hours. There's a lot of minutes...that was a good one.

    After that my wife and I had the best f*cking cup of coffee in the history of the world and she told me to go home and get the sheets on the crib and some other things ready for her arrival. I walked to the car and I really, really could not feel the ground I was walking on and I got in...started the car and as I turned right out of the hospital...I pushed the power button on the radio. I heard the very end of a commercial and then an acoustic guitar and then these words..."and even though the moment's passed me by, ...I still can't turn away"

    To this day, I cry like an aggie if I ever hear any part of that song.

    I stand next to an empty grave
    Where my friends will lay
    I'll put their bodies down
    Into their resting place.
    Got a purple heart
    For a wound and scar
    They just send letters home
    That broke the families apart.
    The paulbearers burden
    As heavy as my hearts hurting.
    All the pain and guilt
    My head is pondering.
    Why them and not me?
    Why them and not me?
    Why?
    Did you ever hear that coffin sound?
    Means another poor boy is in the ground.
    Have you ever heard them church bells toll?
    Means another poor boy is dead and gone.
    Have you ever heard that coffin sound?
    Means another poor boy is in the ground.
    The preachers preach, only folded flags
    And the mothers mourn, holding folded flags.
    Just caskets and folded flags.
    Just caskets and folded flags.
    No hope, just folded flags.
    No hope, just folded flags.
    No hope
    No hope
    No hope
    No hope
