Everytime I hear Tim Mcgraws "Live Like You Were Dyin' " it sends chills down my back.  It makes me think of my mom, and the many years she fought various types of cancer.

I was wondering if you have had a similar experience?

Several for me.

Ellington's Satin Doll

Charlie Robison's My Hometown

Guy Clark's Coat from the Cold

Townes Van Zandt's Pancho & Lefty

the Flatlanders' South Wind of Summer

Ol' Willie's Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain

 

 

Ever hear the slow version of "Songs About Texas", at the end of the George's Bar CD (which everyone needs to stop in to when going through Waco TX, the bar, not the CD)?  It's more of a lament, one can almost hear the whippoorwill.  That song is The Truth.  Period. 

Just a heads up, kinda related to the original trend, but Robert Earl Keene & Lyle Lovett are doing a show together, at Bass Hall in Ft Worth.  They may be touring like this, so keep an eye out.  It's being billed as "College Days at A&M".

Used to. "Good-bye Earl" - not for the obvious reasons, but the idea of a friend jumping on a last-minute red-eye. "I Loved Her First" - which is for me about my church, again not the usual narrative

Songs I never skip when my iPod's on shuffle: "Non Nobis, Domine" "When a Child is Born" "Riverdance"

Jesus, Etc. by Wilco.
Came out the year following 9/11 and the song's lyrics have eerie references to the event even though the band says the song was written and produced way before and has nothing to do with it.
Hauntingly sad and meaningingful to me.

3 songs:

"Drive" by Alan Jackson was a song that I remember listening to in my fathers truck before he passed away, it's one of the few memories I remember with him.

"Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning" also by Alan Jackson, 9/11 never forget. Very emotional song.

"I Saw God Today" by George Strait. Stops me in my tracks, makes me appreciate the little things in life.

"Champagne Supernova" by Oasis. Reminds me of a boyfriend that had an addiction.

These are all really good! ''Drive" is a great song.

Shame In You by Alice In Chains

Rotten Apple by Alice In Chains

Nutshell by Alice In Chains

Thonatos by Shiroh Sagisu 

Midnight Cowboy by Faith No More

Life is like a Boat by Rie Fu

Air on a G String by J.S. Bach

End of the Beginning by Jason Becker

Tears of an Angel by Marty Friedman

Those songs always get to me. I had a very depressed stage and Alice In Chains really helped me a lot. As well as songs by Rie Fu. The other songs always floor me by the beauty of them. If anyone needs to hear an inspirational story, definitely look up Jason Becker. It could change your life.

Nutshell by Alice in Chains was my depressed song. "If I can't be my own.. I'd feel better dead.."
