    There are some songs that do the opposite and make me wish I was dead.

    A live version of Sly & the Family Stone, the construction of a groove - it's alive!


    the instantly recognizable harmonica and the fierce beauty of Gladys Knight - I'm not sure I'd listen to it much now, but when it came along, it was shelter from a storm:


    This is my favorite from Emmylou, tells a story pretty close to what we lived through:


    I sang this song at the wedding of my friends daughter, on the Connecticut coast, having sung at my friend's wedding 30 years earilier:


    closer to 70 than 60, but I still like to dance:



    Yeah, sure like our esteemed colleague, @Manual Slim, it would be every song I ever liked, but this is today's batch of reasons...

    Super sad song here, it makes me so glad I was so close to my dad now that he's gone.

    Yeah it is; I should've added Muzzle to my list. The drums on that track, amazing.

    I'm not a fanboy of theirs or anything like that, but from a very young age (12?) this has always made me want to get up and jump around, and still does.

    2.5 minutes of pure joy.

    Some great songs here.

    This is a very sombre song.

    Redgum - "I Was Only 19 (A Walk in the Light Green)"
    An Australian song song written from the perspective of a returned Vietnam War veteran, someone who was conscripted into the Army: "The sixth battalion was the next to tour and it was me who drew the card."
    My uncle was conscripted into the 7th.
    To those who have been / are / will be in the military: thank you for the service and sacrifice.

    (The song makes me appreciate that I didn't have to do that)



    ^ The music video does feature images from the Vietnam War.
    There are "lyrics only" versions on you tube.

    I'm no big fan of these guys usually either, but IMHO this is probably the greatest love song ever written.

    Every time I listen to this, it makes me all emotional, in a good way. I'm such a lucky guy...

    I've been through some deep stuff lately, I've been grieving a lot of losses and I acquired another level of appreciation for All Things Must Pass from George Harrison (it would be his Bday today BTW).
    You could say it makes me appreciate life or look for another more uplifting perspective.
