Spread the love

Today I am thankful for music.  I have always loved all kinds of music.  I have already mentioned how music has played such a role in keeping me sane during this time.  I am thankful how music can change my mood in an instant.  I am thankful how music can inspire me. I am thankful how music can evoke so many emotions.  I am thankful for the songs that seem to be written just for me.  If you walked into my house during the day, you would almost always hear music playing. 

I love this quote from Ray Charles: 

“I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me-like food or water.”

I, too, feel like now more than ever that music is a necessity for me.  I consider music to be an integral piece of my treatment plan.

Here are some of the top songs that have meant a lot to me in the past year for a variety of reasons. (It’s a pretty random list, I know):

    • The Sunshine Song (Jason Mraz)
    • Let It Be (The Beatles)
    • Lots of Counting Crows including A Long December
    • Ordinary Day and Lucky Me (Great Big Sea)
    • Fix You (Coldplay)
    • I Will Show You Love (Kendall Payne)
    • Fight Outta You (Ben Harper)
    • Her Diamonds (Rob Thomas)
    • Not Afraid (Eminem
    • Fighter (Christina Aguilera
    • Gravity (John Mayer
    • Just Breathe (Pearl Ja
    • Pig, One Sweet World, Grey Street (Dave Mathews Band
    • Man In the Mirror (Michael Jackson)
    • Avalanche (Chris Trapper
    • Jesus Take the Wheel (Carrie Underwood
    • Lots of Ray Lamontagne
    • Lots of Jimmy Buffett


I’m sure I will think of a million more later…
