I went through a long dark night of the soul, lasting years.
Many songs helped during that time, these are just a few.
There is no rhyme or reason to the choices, they just worked for me.
Belinda Carlisle – Runaway Horses
Eurythmics – Miracle of Love, When Tomorrow Comes, I Saved the World Today
Johnny Cash – Bridge Over Troubled Water, The Man Comes Around, I’m Free From The Chain Gang Now
Mozart or Beethoven – can’t recall name of piece sadly.
Aha – Dark is the Night
The Upper Room – Black and White, All Over This Town
Stornoway – Zorbing
Rosanne Cash – Beautiful Pain, Black Cadillac
R.E.M. – What’s the Frequency Kenneth, Bad Day, Day Sleeper
Stereophonics – Hurry Up and Wait
Gabriella Cilmi – Sweet About Me
Geneva – Into the Blue
Audioslave – Show Me How To Live, Be Yourself
Bruce Springsteen – All Or Nothing At All, Better Days
U2 – Magnificent, New Year’s Day
Meat Loaf – Razor’s Edge, Midnight at the Lost and Found
Ash – Shining Light
Prefab Sprout – Ride, God Watch Over You
McIntosh/Ross – All My Trust I Place In You, Jesus Nailed My Sins Upon The Tree
Dolly Parton – Hello God
Jason Mraz – Life Is Wonderful
Black – Wonderful Life
Madonna – Like A Prayer
Bob Dylan – Shelter From The Storm
Neil Diamond – Pretty Amazing Grace, Man of God
Beth Nielsen Chapman – Panis Angelicus
Amy MacDonald – Mr Rock & Roll
Ryan Adams – So Alive
Joe Satriani – Always With Me, Always With You, I Believe
Puccini – Humming Chorus
As I say, no rhyme or reason that I knew of at the time, they just helped in their own ways.
Sometimes not even the whole song, sometimes just a few notes, a few words, sometimes just even a single note.
Thanks for reading.
