    This song has so much meaning for me.  It is a true song and I remember this night so well.  I was seventeen and alone with my newborn baby girl.  She was sleeping peacefully on the couch beside me.   My heart was in my throat as I worried about the plight of these poor...

    How Could I Not?

    Music without meaning would be pointless to me.Lyrics are key for me. The way they are sung, accentuated by the instrumentals, can make me feel a number of emotions. I typically prefer music that I can relate to: lyrics that embody the exact way that I have been feeling, my views...

    I'm listening to Eminem recovery,

    this is what I like to listen to when I'm hurting inside, conflicted with the thought of using again. I love that today I'm clean and drug free. Hell yeah I'm the winner. Bless all you that have got and stayed clean.

    I love Farewell by J.

    Cole. A lot of people don't like rap, and if they do it's usually some meaningless crap, however this is a song I hold close to my heart because it makes me think about the meaning of my life and how I want to be remembered when my time is up.

    Believe it or not I was a fan of pop music,

    I loved Lady gaga, Kesha, and Katy perry. But as I grew older I learned that some of the pop songs today have clearly no meaning, in my opinion. So I turned to metal and rock, I grew to love Evanescence more (I liked their songs even when I loved pop) and I started listening to...
