songs that get u thru....

welll, now that im over a week the physicals are gone and i actually have felt the best i have ever felt going thru this im not trying to thnk about about the future which usually scares the sht outta me just kinda going with the flow, but music has always been apart of me and got me tru stuff so i was wondering if any of y have certain songs that either lift ur spirits or get u over the humo from thinking bout bad thoughts or usung or old days or even songs that mayb u cant listen to anymore cuz it makes u think bad or what not...for me when i go thru this i listen to rodney atkins "if ur going thru hell" thats the one that gets me a lil bit and makes me not thnk so much about withdralws or whatnot i was just curious if anyone else had any other songs that has and still helping u out???

'If you're going thru hell'  was one of the ones I listened to the most.Also 'Thats Why I'm Here' by Kenny Chesney.  Music was the best therapy for me during w/ds,still is....All the best...Kim

Music is huge in helping the time go by while your in w/ds...A couple of mine have already been listed. "going through hell" and "Thats why I'm here" but another good one is "Its my Life" by Bon Jovi.

It's pretty cool to see everyone's music tastes too... dominosarah got me with Seether - awesome. :) For me it's anything lyrically or melodically inclined to agree with my mood. Staind, ill nino, Mudvayne to Talib Kweli, Lil Wayne, Eminem and everything in between... my musical spectrum is wacked out for sure!! :) I know ya'll are shocked that anything about me would be wacked out... lol

This is a great thread - keep posting everyone!!

I have to say that i agree with beargizmo - anything Grateful Dead works ... and outotown ... Southern Fried rock is always good also ...... When I get a Carribean craving i go with Bob Marley or Jimmy Buffet - - -

listening to some Jerry Garcia Band from 1975 "Catfish John" my favorite Garcia Band tune...the picture of hanging around the river as a kid with ol' catfish John in my mind is so cool....

"Mama said, don't go near that river
don't be hanging around
ol' Catfish John
Come the morning I'd always be there

walking in his footsteps in the sweet delta dawn"
take me back to another mornin'
to a time so long ago
Where the sweet mangnolia blossoms
cotton fields, as white as snow..

Catfish John, was a river hobo
lived and died by the river's bend
Looking back, I still remember...I was proud to be his friend.''

(likely spectacular guitar solo)


Born a slave in the town of Vicksburg
traded for a chestnut mare
Lord he never spoke in anger
though his load, was hard to bear..
