I'm learning to cope or is it to avoid? Either way ... music at just a tad below the pain threshold seems to help block those nasty images.

Here's my top ten reason to not be my neighbor:

Golden Ear Ring - Twilight Zone
System Of A Down - Chop Suey
Drowning Pool - Bodies
Papa Roach - Last Resort
Johnny Cash - Hurt
Nickleback - Drowning
Godsmack - Sick 0f My Life
Piss Ant - Piss It Away
Nickleback - This Is How You Remind Me
Blink - All The Small Things

So what's on your play list?

Happy Labor Day!

Country......................all of them, Kid Rock, Alan Jackson, Toby Keith.  You may have to google who they are as we are miles apart here ............  lol.  I also like tunes from the 80's rock.

Pump up the volume.

Very eclectic (Aha to the spice girls...) Yeah, I'm a geek!

Normally, I'm a Jazz and Classical listener but neither of those work well. I have some Kid Rock and Metallica on the list too.

Apocalyptica I never heard before but I the instruments surprised me ... what are they cellos? Yep, looked them on Wikipedia. I like that band, have to check out your other favorites Closure, you have good taste.

Dear Buddha,
You're a person after my own heart! I'm too ill to enjoy music just now,but when the darkness is just starting to ascend,this is some of the music I love(cranked up to 11!)---
SOAD--Chop Suey
BYOB
Aerials
Toxicity(This is so good!)
Serj Tankian--"Empty Walls"
Slipknot--"Duality
Good Charlotte--"The river"
QOTSA---"No-one knows"
Scars on Broadway--"They say"
Blink 182--anything by them ,really.
Depeche Mode--"Personal Jesus"

Weird isn't it,if you're like me,and your mental state just isn't right,I find all my so-much loved music totally unlistenable because it seem unbearably sad.It's MARVELLOUS when the ability to enjoy ANYTHING returns .Hope that will be soon ,for me and for you ,if you're currently not at your best.I was glad to hear from someone who,when it all seems to be going wrong,needs their music good and loud.I can feel like I'm in the pits of hell,but a a LOUD singalong to SOAD especially can lift me up.Hope your life gets a bit easier---in the mean-time,it's nice to hear from someone who knows some of the music I love.I hope you keep well.All good wishes

I think three days of SOAD's Chop Suey has helped, I'm feeling a little better. The tremors have stopped. Thanks to your list, I added a few more to mine that were missing. I hope you feel better soon too. Best wishes.

Holy Moley Batman, I feel 100 years old.  I always knew who was "in" when I had kids at home but my baby is 36.

I guess I better have the grandkids over more shocked

Music is an extremely powerful form of expression. It combines both words and sound to deliver a message. Certain songs that one hears on the radio can trigger specific memories in one's mind. There is no doubt, there is a fervent connection between music and our feelings.

So whatever your preference is, just remember how great music is in  our lives.

You bet ya! Music has saved my sorry a.... from going completely coo-coo at times. I know my youngest daughter is especially helped with music. She always has it blasting...and sings along to her little hearts content. My oldest likes show tunes... knows them by heart ... but don't tell anyone.. she's 19. Nothing wrong with that I say... whatever makes you happy.
Now Kitt... you think YOU"RE behind the times... I listen to the Barra McNeils, The Chieftans, .... any thing Celtic ... the faster the better. These old Irish tunes do it for me... and the French Canadian fiddle music gets cranked up whenever I'm down. It brings me right back to when I was a lttle girl, and our big old french canandian family would gather after midnight mass for the REVEILLON... there would be music and singing until the wee hours of the morning. Happiest times of my life.
My girls go runnign whenever I turn up the old jig music tho.! So I end up polka dancing all by my lonesome.

I love The Chieftans! My father was Irish, as in born in Ireland, raised in England. Too many memories there in that music, hope I can listen to it again soon, at least the bagpipes won't drive mother nuts any more.

The Chieftans - LONG BLACK VEIL ... omg!
Cowboy Junkies
Nirvana (Unplugged)
Depeche Mode - My Own Personal Jesus
REM
Halleluja (By anyone)
AC/DC
The Rolling Stones
The Eagles
Blue Grass
Zydeco
Grateful Dead
I wonder why it is that I don't listen to music much anymore since illness
struck? Maybe because most of my music requires movement. In the past, in my
youth it was this "When I was stone blue, rock 'n roll sure got me through."
I'll check back to see what the next person has to say.

Dear Buddha,if you love the Chieftains,I think you would REALLY like The Bothy Band(fantastic videos available on youtube),and if you haven't heard anything by Planxty,I think that would float your boat too.Some of it is ,of course,unbearably poignant,as some of the best Irish traditional music tends to be,but The Bothy Band can really have you dancing and rejoicing too---the musicianship is extraordinary,and the use of harpsichord and clavinet,as well as the usual traditional instruments,makes for a slightly different sound,while remaining totally true to the original songs/reels/jigs etc.
I can't listen to music just now---just too ill.
I hope you enjoy my recommendations.Hang on in there,and all good wishes for the return of your own health.

Dear Pamela,I love your music list--so much good stuff on there,that I love when I'm well.I love the Johnny Cash version of "Personal Jesus" as well as Depeche Mode,and i admit to liking the Marilyn Manson version of it too.Nirvana unplugged------woah,couldn't go near that just now,much as I love it.Same goes for anybody's version of "Hallalujah".Being ill sucks on a grand scale;seems to make all my favourite things just a big pile of dust and ashes.But health will return to both of us eventually,I hope and trust.When the wretched depression and anxiety finally gives in to the mega amount of medication I'm on-----well,my sound system will be working overtime.Here's to you,and i hope you begin to find enjoyment in life again as soon as possible.Kind regards.

Youtude does not do The Bothy Band justice. I really do like the Union Pipes. Got to find me some more of the Bothy Band. I found some Christy Moore in my collection, need to rename them with "Planxty". "A Pair of Brown Eyes" is one of my favorites.

I'm going to put on some Flogging Molly and get a little sleep, they should sooth my pounding head.

I sure hope you can enjoy your music soon.

OK, I am a KT Tunstall fan, does that count? turn

Flogging Molly ... Eeek! : )

I used to sing. (Just for me ... and the kids) I loved it. They loved it.
Maybe I've come to Don McLean's .... The Day The Music Died.
Oh, that's just pessimistic. I'm going to Halleluja right now and make sure
I'm still a music lover.

Sometimes I thought I loved music the best of anything and now ...

Dysthimia ... You listen to something. TODAY. NOW. K?

P.S. Did y'all know that Mick Jagger harmonizes on Chieftans, Long Black
Veil?

You got me to stay up a little longer to check out KT Tunstall. I like her.

All music counts. Music beats the heck out dropping ice cube down your short or sniffing the cat box to ground. Yeah ... I've been improvising. blush

"Fire" by Jimi Hendrix
 
Haven't listened to it in a long time... it was a GREAT release to blare it and sing at the top of my lungs after stinking break-ups in the old days!!
Thank GOD I'm happily a/sexual now!!  (Hmmm, maybe that's why I haven't listened to it in so long!  hee!)

"The time to hesitate is through
No sense wallow in the wire....
La da da da de
Comeon Baby, Light my Fire - Morrison

Maybe the best of all ... Me & Mr Jones -- Counting Crows
I wore out a CD playing that over and over and overandoverandover ....
Oh those Counting Crows

I painted an entire wooden chair to the Counting Crows. All Dots. All Colors.
I actually hurt my self. Like a skiing accident ... but not.

Black Crows had a good one ...She speaks to Angels

The other Crowe ... someone else can have her! (Horney Boy Music) : ))

Dear Pamela Neckpain,I decided to try and do as you suggested,so played"They Say" by Scars on Broadway,as loud as I could crank it up,and although it was a very intense experience(not always in a good way),I managed to sing along at full volume.All a bit weird..but good on the whole.I hope it's the start of being able to enjoy something that's always helped me in the past.
Anxiety is a strange thing...stuff you loved suddenly becomes frightening.I shall be trying to listen to some of the other music you recommended.Thanks for the gentle kick up the butt-----I know from past episodes of illness,that sometimes you just have to darn well MAKE yourself do the thing that's making you anxious,and eventually normality makes it's return.I've been meaning to look into some Zydeco stuff--who to start with?I've only heard Charles Thibodeaux----- who would you recommend?
Let's hope we all get well enough to let music do its' part in our healing.

Dear Disenchanted,I love them too,but when I was in the pits of depression last year,I just couldn't bear to listen to "The Black Parade"------had me turn into a real weepy mess,it seemed so poignant.When I got well again,it was GREAT to be able to enjoy it again.Unfortunately,the nasty anxiety etc has returned,and I'm finding to hard to listen to much at present,but I keep trying.Got to beat this thing......Hope you feel in good health and spirits soon,if you're having problems at the moment.

Okay, I'm with Kitt, I feel really old now myself.  I have to honestly say I have never heard of half the music listed in this post.

I personally put on my Van Halen or Queen CD and crank it up and sing at the top of my lungs.  Or, John Williamson (an australian singer) is my top choice right now. 

If it were up to my niece, I'd be listening to the Jonas Brothers all day every day.  I knew I was old a few weeks back when I was babysitting her and her little brother and I walked down to her room and proceeded to tell her to "turn that racket down" (I realized than that I had turned into my mother and how she felt when we played our music too loud at home when I was a teenager).

Patsy Cline - Let the Teardrops Fall

My Father loved listening to Patsy Cline must be why I have a few in my collection.

Dysthymia: I'm glade to hear you got to sing along to some music.
