Because that’s the truth. Music helps.
Here’s one I’ve liked since it and its video first came out:
That was Collective Soul’s “The World I Know.” Good song.
Here’s a humorous scene from the movie “Blazing Saddles” performed by Madeline Kahn singing the song “I’m Tired”:
Began watching that movie when I was about 8 or 9, so it’s been with me a long time and remains a personal favorite. And that song especially has stuck and felt kinda relatable by my late 20s (aside from taking on thousands of men). ha Either way, gives me a chuckle each time I watch that clip.
The Marshall Tucker Band with “Can’t You See”:
Terrific concert performance there.
Another song I’ve appreciated for well over a decade, The Allman Brothers Band’s “Whipping Post”:
One I’ve liked since it first came out is Fiona Apple’s “Criminal”:
This is why it’s good to re-examine music we dig periodically, if only to give yourself a chance to re-explore the song and see if it feels any different over time. Because music carries along with me in my life and can’t help but change in how I relate to it depending on my life experiences and where I’m at in processing all that. At-home therapy, in a sense. *shrugs* My method anyway.
Here’s a good performance of Ted Nugent’s song “Stranglehold”:
Another I’ve attracted toward since it first came out is David Bowie’s “I’m Afraid of Americans”:
John Prine with his 1978 performance of “Thats The Way That The World Goes Round”:
