Music

A post by PocoSostenuto7 noted that there's significant evidence that music often helps people at stressful points in their lives, it's therapeutic. I agree. I also find that things I was listening to during significant moments in my life become the 'theme music' in my memory, hearing them again evokes memories. So I thought I'd put some music on this forum and say what I was listening to
when I finally broke out of my SM a few months back and began dating again (tastes vary).

I'd be interested in what other people are (or were) listening to (I like music).

Love this!

I always find this one is great when I am having a pity party:

Thanks for those. I really like Ulrich Schnauss and jog to In All the Wrong Places.

And of course the Big Lebwoski.

"The Dude abides"

Here's the song for dealing with reset sex. Wish I remembered it earlier:

Crazy...gnarls Barkley

Breakin me....jonny Lang (love that kid)

(All from current play lists)

music is a life line for me. At one point in time I wanted to be a singer. I have wide ranging eclectic tastes. And always love discovering new artists.

currently for NO thinking relaxation I listen to acoustic flamenco guitar. (ottmar liebert and etc).

Otherwise I listen to tunes I can belt out at the top o'my lungs. it's therapeutic to me.

Right now? Love is a Stranger - Eurythmics

They have a lot of good breaking up stuff also

"Sweet Dreams" makes more than a glancing nod towards dysfunctional relationships.

I also like Pink Floyd's Trial from the Wall.

I play piano and nowadays I've been hitting the keys to softer music to calm me down:
Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata and Fur Elise
Chopin's Nocturne and Valse #2 (which stretches my playing abilities)
Schubert's Serenade

Linkin Park... Put my out of my f*****g misery

I replied to earchres's 'I Took The Blame Story', the concept of defensive walls and how they feel. Which relates to this, which I've been listening to a lot recently...

Paint the world anew
Find a way to open all
The joy in order to
Illuminate the strain
Fireworks in the blue
Beyond the bursting endless shine
Show me where the real light is

(Chorus)
Building a wall inside
A wall around my heart
Building a wall inside
Yeah

(repeat chorus)

(repeat chorus 2x after break)

Paint the world anew
Find a way to open all
The joy in order to
Alleviate the strain
Fireworks in the blue
Beyond the bursting endless shine
Show me where the real light is

Show me... where the real light is
Show me... where the real light is

Building a wall inside
A wall around my heart (Wall around my heart)
Building a wall inside
Whoa, whoa, whoa...

Building a wall inside
A wall around my heart
Whoa, whoa, around my heart
Wall around my heart

Show me where the real light is

I am a musician by trade, but have been dormant for a while as my attention has been on other things, so I don't know if it's ironic or sad that I can't listen to anything modern with lyrics or I risk going off the deep end with my emotions. The clean, orderly, crisp freshness of baroque music cuts through the fog swirling around my relationship. Next to that, it's the comedy radio station for me. I sure need things to laugh about.

Thankyou people. That's been enjoyable. I had my daughter staying this weekend. So I have a 4 year old convert to New Orleans Jazz, she clicked a few more links of Tuba Skinny after playing the given link a couple of times. She's quite a big fan of these too:<br />

A couple of weeks after saying "I'm done", (so that tense period where you're both talking a lot but it's not really anything other than going around the same subject again and again, while you process it), we both rediscovered and enjoyed this one (I was a clash fan as a kid)<br />

she was a bit creeped out when she finally realised the lyrics (coincidence or subconcious? b#ggered if I know), in a similar vein, I enjoy this one as well:-<br />

I encourage further contributions. I've already had a couple of people implying that I need to look into a pandora account. I reckon music's a good thing.

I enjoyed your links.

To clear my mind this sort of silly dubstep stuff:

When I'm feeling "gritty" NO blues and funkrock:

In my opinion the most beautiful piece of music ever written:

(Beethoven Concerto No. 5 in E flat "Emperor", Op. 73 - Adagio un poco mosso)

Finally, I cannot feel anything other than loved:
