    A Theme Song For My Soul.

    Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness. ~Maya Angelou Music takes me where words can not. Music does not judge me or patronize me. Music empowers and defines, words wind around moments and memories. Each time...

    Quadrophenia by the Who.

    Roger Daltrey's voice is so soothing throughout the whole album.

    This song has been a favorite of mine

    for a long time. It always comes to mind when I'm feeling especially alone and/or hurt. It was written for Big Kenny's sister who was a domestic abuse victim. I've never been physically abused and I wouldn't ever try to pretend to try to say that I can relate to that. But I...

    When things go wrong

    and I feel like I have no one, I go to music it helps me feel better and helps me relax. It makes me feel that even for that short amount of time all my problems can just disappear and I can pretend that everything in the world is fine. It helps me escape from reality and eases...

    Mind over matter, that is what a friend of mine

    has told me. And tonight I lay, deep in though. I think not of anything in particular, rather, I let my mind wander. To whatever may come. I lay my bed, listening to song that holds meaning to me. Song that gives me, as my very good friend said, hope, and strength to move...

    Whenever my parents are fighting with me

    or each other or anyone I just simply put my headphones in and ignore them. They adventually go away and stop fighting. Music also helps me stay incontrol when I feel down and out. It helps me realize stuff. I just love music.

    Angry Music

    You can telly mood by the music that gets played. Usually I play classics or golden oldies, but if the heavy metal goes on- or even worse, the Wagner - just quietly leave me alone till I get over it.

    medically - I have talked to a lot of counselors..they told me to listen to music so you don't go nuts. It's one way you could do this. Keep yourself calm. And just don't worry about it any more. People, it is hard. Don't worry about it. Don't think about it. It' hard. We all...

    For some reason, music calms me down.

    That's why I've chosen music over cutting. When I'm upset, I lock myself up in my room, close the curtains, stick in my headphones, and listen to the specific playlist I made for when I'm upset. After letting out all of my emotions, I calm down and just read a book or write.
