Since I started the topic on "songs that make you cringe", I decided to devote a thread to songs that have comforted you in a time of crisis.
To me music is very theraputic and can restore a persons' well being like nothing else can even in the worst of times.
Here are some songs that helped me cope after the demise of my marriage:
Crying - Roy Orbison - classic
Empty Chairs - Don McLean
Yesterday - Paul McCarney
Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon and Garfunkle
Dangling Conversation - Simon and Garfunkle
Diamonds and Rust - Joan Baez
I Wish I had a River I Could Skate Away On - Joni Mitchell
I know You're Out There Somewhere- Moody Blues
In Your Wildest Dreams - The Moody Blues
Of course, classical music is my main source of music.
Beethoven's sixth and ninth symphonies are always uplifting. As well, I love his seventh symphony.
Then there is:
Just to name a few!!!!
Here are some famous quotes about music:
"What fairy-like music steals over the sea, Entrancing our senses with charmed melody?"
Mrs. C. B. Wilson (—— –1846): What Fairy-like Music.
"Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast, To soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak."
William Congreve. (1670–1729)
"If music be the food of love, play on;
Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.
That strain again! it had a dying fall:
O, it came o’er my ear like the sweet sound 1That breathes upon a bank of violets,Stealing and giving odour!"
Twelfth Night. Act i. Sc. 1. [text]
William Shakespeare. (1564-1616)
