I have a whole list, but 2 main overall ones which I listen to everytime I need some encouragement or a boost :-

Send Me On My Way, Rusted Root. Cruel Sun. Producers - Dave Brown, Lara Lampenfield, Mike Michalski, Randy Rhodes, Mark McNeely and Rusted Root. 1992. Its not so much the lyrics but how the song sounds and how it feels to listen to it.

Also:

Something Wild. Lindsey Stirling and Andrew McMahon. Brave Enough. Producers- RUMORS, Josh Abraham and Nico Stadi. 2016. - "You've got a big heart, the way you see the world it brought you this far, you might have some bruises and a few scars but you know you're gonna be okay".

Hi,

I'm new here (first post!) and I have to say that it is music which gets me through difficult days. I've only just decided to seek help after a particularly difficult but unrelated life event and that huge step means my head is just filled with all manner of mixed thoughts. Consequently, I've found that music pushes out all that stuff just enough to feel in control and focus. I have two playlists, the one for bad days when I just want to wallow in misery and the other for when the more objective me is in residence.
One song in particular features on both lists:

First Aid Kit - My Silver Lining (Stay Gold, 2014)

It has an awesome tune and some great lines, in particular the references to not taking the easy road, reminding me that the coming months are all going to be worth it even if it's going to be a tough journey.

Happy listening

Bellatrix
I'm new here too - hi! I just wanted to say that I had never heard this before, I searched on spotify after reading your post and I love it :-) Thank you for sharing :)

Some hymns and Gospel songs are more meaningful for me than others.

At the moment "How Great Thou Art" reminds me of our wonderful Creator and Harry Secombe renders it so well. The Universe is vast; enjoy it

Although some might think it childish, "Jesus Loves Me" has been a life saver. No person might remember me, but I am always loved, despite everything

Elvis Presley (I know others also recorded this) singing "One Day at a Time" pulls me up when I'm thinking back and forth, then/now/future all mixed. Just this one more breath right now. Be present

Cliff Richard & The Young zones
Livin Doll

I always remember this song as school dinner ladies where in strike and we had just moved so was now a 30min walk to school and we had to be picked up from school for lunch so my mum got my older brother’s ex girlfriend to pick us up and that morning in school we had a sex Ed lesson I must have been about 10 and on we had been learning about eggs and sperm and I embarrassed her by telling her all about it and how the sperm look like tadpoles as so as we got in she put some music and that was the first song. Have loved Cliff ever since it still makes me laugh how this 10yr old could make a 20 something go bright red in the middle of the street as she had no idea how to shut me up.

3 yrs later she was the woman my sf choice to be caught in bed with. It’s one of the few happy memories I have of my childhood and remembering it has put a smile on my face.
