One advantage I have while on travel is the time differential; try this one on for size: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LzUQZw3wfro[/youtube]:

Prayer in Open D more than any other song I’ve known summarizes my personal struggle in life.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRx4sHuDi9A

There's a valley of sorrow in my soul
Where every night I hear the thunder roll
Like the sound of a distant gun
Over all the damage I have done
And the shadows filling up this land
Are the ones I built with my own hand
There is no comfort from the cold
Of this valley of sorrow in my soul
There's a river of darkness in my blood
And through every vein I feel the flood
I can find no bridge for me to cross
No way to bring back what is lost
Into the night it soon will sweep
Down where all my grievances I keep
But it won't wash away the years
Or one single hard and bitter tear
And the rock of ages I have known
Is a weariness down in the bone
I use to ride it like a rolling stone
Now just carry it alone
There's a highway risin' from my dreams
Deep in the heart I know it gleams
For I have seen it stretching wide
Clear across to the other side
Beyond the river and the flood
And the valley where for so long I've stood
With the rock of ages in my bones
Someday I know it will lead me home


Many have led me part way to that highway leading to the other side, the side I’ve long to reach. There is “no way to bring back what is lost” and that only frustrated and angered me, namely the stupidity on my part to not grasp the loving hands extended to me. It’s a realization that the prison I’ve been in “is the one I built with my own hands”. For years I was able “to ride it like a rolling stone” meaning I could live with my misery because I didn't even know what it was. But, there was no comfort in my soul and that has kept me searching for help, help to get out of the prison I had constructed. I have finally found the help in an exceptionally strong woman who is now leading me across that bridge “risin' from my dreams”. Thank you Holly, I'll spend the rest of my life making it up to you.

Since everyone's linking:

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sq5oqY3-vhg[/youtube]

the 20 seconds from 1:50 to 2:10 are among the most melodic tunes I've ever heard.

I love the song - but the video misses the mark

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iczaDcixBj4[/youtube]

Personally -
When I hear this song - I'm kneeling at a cross - praying to the author of love.
(no idea whether or not Seal would appreciate that thought)

Angels Among Us by Alabama

From the minute I heard this song, it reminded me that there are angels everywhere we look, helping us whether we see it and acknowledge it or not.

At my Air Force retirement ceremony, the tradition where I was stationed was to create and show a slide show of the person's life and play three songs. One of the songs I chose to include was Angels Among Us in recognition of all the people that had helped me. This song reminds me that I am truly not alone.

A great tune, played at the 2006 Nobel prize ceremony

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7iLPnDCQ1g[/youtube]

The performance has a moving story behind it ---- Yusuf Islam had abandoned music for a long time ---- but he was encouraged to pick the guitar again - by his son and his imam (the imam said it'd be fine, as long as he wasn't shaking his hips, or something like that).


Another very moving tune by the same artist.....

Take it easy, take it easy
Don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy
Lighten up while you still can
Don't even try to understand
Just find a place to make your stand and take it easy

TAKE IT EASY
(written by Jackson Browne & Glenn Frey)

I started a separate thread that was titled more along the lines of music you enjoy, maybe that thread should be merged with this one? I'm sure Science Chic or one of the other mods will see to it...
