I have too many to list, music is such an integral part of my life, it's there, always. But some of the best music for me when I'm down is My Chemical Romance. Anything they've done. They go out of their way to tell their fans "hey, you're not alone, we have issues too" and they've made those issues public. They have many interviews, publicity statments, you name it, about how no matter how bad you feel, no matter what bad things are happening, or how messed up you might think you are or how alone you may feel - you aren't - there are other people out there just like you, and they are some of those people. You'll see in my sig, a quote from Gerard, their vocalist. It's just a prime example of them. Frank Iero has one too, "This band saves lives." And it's true. I can't tell you how many people from their fandom that I have spoken to - kids and people with their own problems, those hiding from the world, on the verge of saying goodbye forever - and this band has come along and lifted them up, made them know that life is worth living.
I have a tattoo on my left wrist - it's a lyric from their song "Famous Last Words" and it says "I am not afraid to keep on living". It's there to remind me not to do the destructive things that I am prone to, that no matter what, it will get better, that I've gotten through tough stuff before. It's not always easy - and I do slip up - but I always feel better listening to these guys - it really is like having a comfy blanket to wrap yourself in.
on another note - I can hear In the Arms of the Angels by Sarah MacLachlan (sp?) without bawling - they use it on those ads for animal welfare and those break my heart. I have to turn the channel. Now when I hear that song, my stomach turns. My heart just can't take it.
