I am planning on attending the GFMPH Florida in March and I have been working on a playlist for my IPOD. I am driving up from So. Florida and thought it was time to make a PC inspired playlist to listen to on the drive.

I could use some suggestions from everyone. Songs about death, living, fighting or anything else meaningful to us. We have discussed this here before but I couldn't find much using the search tool. Songs we like that say a lot about what we are going through. It can just be a phrase we like or the entire message in the song. Yes, I already have "Live Like You are Dying" by Tim McGraw.


Here is some of what I have so far:

All I Need is a Miracle - Mike and the Mechanics
Beat It - Michael Jackson
Angels Among Us and Give Me One More Shot - Alabama
Ain't Wasting Time No More - The Allman Brothers
Calling All Angels - Train

Getting Better
Help
In My Life
When I'm 64
With a Little Help From My Friends - all by The Beatles

Good Times Bad Times and Stairway to Heaven - Led Zepplin

If Today Was Your Last Day - Nickelback

If I Die Young - The Band Perry

If Tomorrow Never Comes - Garth Brooks

Live and Let Die And Here Today - Paul McCartney

Live Like We're Dying - Kris Allen

My Way & You Gave Me A Mountain - Elvis

Survivor - Destiny's Child

Stand By Me - John Lennon Version

Threaten Me With Heaven and These Days - Vince Gill

Tears in Heaven - Eric Clapton

The Waiting (Is the hardest part) - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (I think of this song everytime I
get ready for another PSA test)

Woke up With Wood (Needs no explaination) - ZZ Top

And because he died of PC a few years ago, I had to add in some Dan Fogelberg songs:
"Same Old Lang Syne" and "Missing You" "Sometimes a Song"

Thanks in advance for your help.

All of these songs played an instrumental (no pun intended) role in my life during my process... (many are spiritually based to warn those who might be offended)

Great suggestions so far. I especially liked "Alive" since I am a Lynyrd Skynyrd fan.

Hey Bill... I'm guessing you've heard this one, but if you haven't...you should be touched by it... emotionally powerful, especially for a Skynrd fan... "Momma and daddy's doin' alright I saw Melody last Saturday night, she's all grown up she's such a pretty girl, things just ain't the same since you left our world..."

F8 you are in the lead if this was a contest. I didn't quite get the point of your Talking Heads song "Life during wartime" until the end of the song. " the burning keeps me alive" phrase says it all.

Gunfighter, I do have "Still in Saigon" by Charlie Daniels on my list. Although I was lucky enough to avoid being drafted in 1970, I will salute those who had to serve.

PSA60, perfect song, why didn't I think of that?

Inchoation, No I hadn't heard that song but it is great, thanks.

Wonderful idea for a thread. Music is a language of emotion, and the PCa journey is nothing if not emotional!

All of these songs came to me one by one after I was diagnosed, in treatment, and finally in the limbo after treatment. These provoked very deep and powerful emotional reactions, frequently requiring a tissue. I started writing them down, and finally made a CD for my car with all of them. I still listen to these regularly.

They're pretty much all faith based, and provide me great comfort.

Anyway, here they are in the order they made themselves special to me:
1) Carry Me - Josh Wilson
2) Praise You in This Storm - Casting Crowns
3) The Hurt and the Healer - Mercy Me
4) Move - Mercy Me
5) Hurricane - Natalie Grant
6) In Christ Alone - Newsboys
7) Healing Hand of God - Jeremy Camp
8) Even If - Kutless
9) Never Once - Matt Redman
10) The One Who Saves - Hillsong Live
11) He Is With Us - Love and the Outcome
12) Find You on My Knees - Kari Jobe
13) Come to the River - Rhett Walker Band
14) Legacy - Nichole Nordman
15) Made Me Glad - Sandi Patti
16) Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) - Hillsong United

Thanks Logo, I have a playlist for alcohol and drug recovery and In the Living Years is on that playlist. Reminds me of my lack of a relationship with my father. Still brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it.

Redwing, great list. Inchoation had the Natalie Grant song "Hurricane" on his list also. Great song, first time I heard it. PCa can bring on the spiritual side of us. Nothing wrong with that!
By the way, your numbers are super!!! Good luck to you. The songs you listen to seem to be working for you.

the talking heads, to me, are singing about post-apocalyptic adaptation and survival. one slip and you are dead.

This ain't no party, this ain't no disco,
This ain't no fooling around
No time for dancing, or lovey dovey,
I ain't got time for that now

That is what is great about music, it is open to interpretation .

Garth Brook's song, The Dance, sounds like a typical c&w love song but he said it is about people who died before us like JFK, RFK, MLK etc.

BTW, the song, "Sometimes a song" by Dan Fogelberg was written for his wife but after he died of PCa, his wife is donating all funds made by it's sales to fighting PCa.

I didn't have the original Ben E. King song Stand by Me on my IPod but I did have the John Lennon version. Great song for us as is Save the last dance.

i'm not fan of the artist but was always intrigued by the lyrics of this song. When I got sick i listened to it a lot before I went back my normal usual stuff. Definitely struck a chord with me those days.

listening to all suggestions here because I'm constantly looking for new songs for my playlists. Can run or workout without music and have grown tired of most songs in my iTunes library.
