    There is a song that I've listened to ever

    since i was a little girl that I absolutely love. There is absolutely no other song that does this to me. I didn't quite understand it until I fell in love for the first time. That song helped me open my mind to how much someone can truly love someone else. Like life is just...

    I Decline by Perfume Genius.

    His voice is just so beautiful, and the piano is sparse just to the point of ecstasy.

    That stupid ******* song was "our" song, from the day I put it on that mixtape for you. You'd play it, Track 3, on repeat, singing to me, "I love you so, I love you so..." and stupid me, I loved that song. And then you left me and now all I hear is "please dont go, please dont...

    "blood Of Eden" By Peter Gabriel

    This song is so good and emotional. Everyone I've turned on to the song loves it. It is hard to talk or think while this song plays. I can't really explain it. I recommend it to all. If you don't connect to it you have no real emotions. Just my opinion. Listen to it and let me...

     "My Immortal" by EvanescenceI don't normally listen to this kind of music but when I heard it I had to pull the car over. For me, it describes the pain, betrayal, and deep wounds I suffered at the hands of people who I thought I cared about. For me, this song has many...

    This song brings me to tears every time I hear it.  Unlike the ending of the video, my wife did not return and so I held her for the last time in March.  It never ever even occurred to me that she would be gone.  The void is huge and only seems to deepen each day...

    and "Work Song" by Hozier. Hozier is inspiring and Tyler's voice is strong and he has his heart in the music. Give it a try?
