Alice in Chains (my version of a lullaby), My Lady Peace, Kill Hannah, AWOLNATION, The Naked and Famous, My Chemical Romance, Of Monsters and Men, French for Rabbits, Amanda Palmer, Jason Webley. Basically, sad pop-rock. One of my favorite songs has this lyric: "...wishes she was was a dancer, and that she'd never heard of cancer, she wishes god would give her some answers, and make her feel beautiful" It's also the song I thought was "we are family", but it's actually "we are all innocent" ...😂😶
The Naked And Famous.....Awesome Kiwi Band Ferret As were Alice in Chains !!! I listen to most things but all time favourites include Bling Melon, Smashing Pumpkins, Counting Crows,Goo Goo Dolls, to name a few!!!
Recently been listening to my old vinyl records, marrilion, meatloaf, Jeff Healey band also Christian Kane's band and his friend Steve Carlson. Like most things except female opera and rap. Also depends on how enhanced my hearing is at the time. Went to see Steve Carlson playing had to leave as the keyboard was hurting my ears.
I am a Christian music listener... The artist doesn't matter but some favs are Steven Curtis Chapmen, Carmen, Micheal W. Smith, Tamela Mann, BeBe Winans, etc. I also like Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Whitney Houston, Natalie Cole, etc. and a BB King on occasion because my late mother loved him.
Mysisterskeeper, me too now (change over 2003). But when I hear the oldies it's nice because it brings back memories of growing up & raising my girls. My dad is a retired minister, and his genre is the old gospel, like The Happy Goodman's and such. And I like those too, but the new Christian contemporary singers seem to relate to our lives today. Do you think that too? 🙂💕🙏🌼
Lol, I married a cop. You know what they say about preachers kids & chips kids. My kids said they always caught it in school because of their dad & grandad! Lol. My dad worked in corporate America for 50+ years then retired and returned to GA. He was ordained to preach in 1999 and worked as a full one minister until he began with Alzheimer's; he struggled so bad the last year. He did fill-in preaching for 20 years before that though. It's awful watching Alzheimer's rob him off so much. 😢 He'll be 86 his next birthday though, so I've been blessed to have him so long. 🙂💕🙏🌼
I'll listen to just about anything that will help "distract" my pain. Though I don't listen to opera, rao or the metal of today. My kids friends were shocked a couple years ago when they were listening to AC/DC and I knew the song. LOL... I'm not THAT old !
I have my favorite music to relax to - Norah Jones, Adele, meditation types, most 80's, I love music that tells a story. I don't like rap, opera, punk, old country, or anything too stimulating to relax. My mood will always determine the genre, so it just depends on what mood I am in, at that moment.
Some of the lyrics to a new favorite song by Lauren Daigle...
"When You don't move the mountains I'm needing You to move, When You don't part the waters I know I must walk through, When You don't give me answers as I cry out to You, I will trust, I will trust, I will trust in You." …
Finding myself relating to She Used To Be Mine-She's imperfect but she tries She is good but she lies She is hard on herself She is broken and won't ask for help She is messy but she's kind She is lonely most of the time She is all of this mixed up
For me, two sounds from shows. The Musician (don't know who it's by, but it's from D Gray Man) and Speed of Flow by Radio Caberretor (from Gintama) those two songs are getting me through my review prep, and the standing up alone in front of my teachers to talk about writing...scary! But I'll survive, and these songs make me smile or cry...they make me feel. 😂😄😝👣❤👅
A Capella and harmony... Something so soothing and calming about hearing the balance of pitches and being able to follow each voice. This is a great way to practice mindfulness and lift my mood, help me get through using up a spoon to get ready in the mornings.
