Which song helped you through a tough time?

From elementary school till my first job I've tried to make people happy with me, to be proud of what I'm doing, but they always wanted more and more from me. I remember I was working the job that they wanted me to do (city administration), my salary was 4 figure but I was dying inside. I've counted the days when my contract will be over (1 year) and the moment I was free - I cut everything from my life that was torturing me. I'm thankful for that song because it helped me to push myself and seek my own happiness.


The song you can't live without?

When I need a hug, that's my song. Always makes me feel happy. It reminds me of someone who I really love, sadly that person is no longer alive, but this song is like secret place and bridge between us... idk, that's how I feel it. Oh, and I adore the instrumental - makes my inner child full with light. Music is a magical thing.

The one that's always stuck in your head?

This is not a song, it's dark magic. I'm thankful for it, because in hard times always give me the energy that I need. It's also a good song to cry on.

I'm thankful for Kim Petras' spiritual anthem "If Jesus was a Rockstar." A surprisingly touching, and mega-catchy super bop.

I have three + a Mystery

 

Breaking Down by Florence & the Machine, Born Free by M.I.A, ? and Breathe by Sia

 

 

If I need a good cry and warm hug, I always put on Breaking Down.

 

 

When I need to get pumped up to protest, Born Free never strayed me wrong. 

 

 

When I am at my very lowest and feel like I can't take it no more, Sia is always there to be my friend. Then, ? when I are ready to be lifted from my depressive episodes.

 

Spoiler

 

Can't live without none of these songs.

L DEVINE - Don't Say It Stripped

This song currently carries me through a lot and reminds me of silence of snowy streets

Basically makes me feel seen & I'm not so bad for completely losing my mind when things don't go my way

 

 

Again makes me feel better when things aren't working out + has been really healing for loss I've been confronted w/ in a recent breakup, family deaths & friends drifting away this year

The way I needed this song in my mentally ill undergrad era. Just dissociating away and blasting Kylie. 

TASTEE one of her best sings :jonnycat:

Inside out by ravyn lenae, it’s helped me a lot throughout the year with anxiety and helped me become more confident with the affirmations within them :heart: I honestly cried multiple times to it when I started to feel my worth and self-appreciation while listening

I absolutely love this song. Me and my friend have been obsessed with it for MONTHS

On June 9th, of this year, my father died. I made a thread two days later asking if anyone had any suggestions on songs that would help with coping with a loss. @Ger-55 recommended this song. At first I put it into a playlist along with the other recommendations and after I finally listened, this song broke my heart into a million pieces.  The second verse made me cry and I still feel such a shiver up my spine. I prefer the “His Version” because it’s more personalized to my experience. 

 

 

“All the pictures on the same walls
Looks like he just went to the store
And when you look into the mirror
Does it make you miss him more?
Win or lose, he was always on your side
Never missed a match
And when you see the moon, do you remember?
he loved you there and back”

 

I ALWAYS tear up. Thank you @Ger-55. Without you I wouldn’t have found this song to gravitate to. I miss my dad more and more each day and this makes me think of the happy memories I had with him and helps me grieve. :heart:

Aw this was truly beautiful, I'm so glad this "little" thing helped through your loss process. Hope you're healing more each day. :hug:

ATRL hates to see it, but I adore this song so much.

 

 

Lyrically to me it's very powerful and somehow poetic. The song has been there through difficult situations: breakup, economic difficulties, academic failures, etc. It really applies for every aspect of my life, and it's a reminder that no matter how impossible it seems to be, you gotta get up and try. It might sound cheesy, but sometimes it's necessary to remind this.

not a song but i'm honestly really thankful for the albums lady wood and blue lips by tove lo. those albums really highlighted my high school years and shaped my music taste into what it is today. really grateful for tove lo as an artist and her entire discography as well.

but i guess if i had to choose a single song though i'd choose talking body by tove lo, because that was the song that introduced me to her in the first place.

Not a song but an album.

 

This year I’m thankful for Marvin Gaye’s Whats Going On. Its one of my favorite 70s albums + its a really strong concept and its lyrics speaks volume to current issues.

 

 

One of my top played albums actually

she created a generational anthem here honestly, gives me the same feeling much of Pet Sounds evokes. it feels like the The Greatest or the Love It If We Made It of 2022, and it's already become a major walking anthem for me this winter
