Brilliant brilliant post Scorch. I hope we can keep this a "living" post as well, cause ones like this can just keep being updated all the time.
There'll be a massive wide range.
I have my faithful ipod when I'm at the gym, and my son just loaded some more music onto it for me ... I'm slowly building up, but at the moment there's 447 songs on there. One of them is my all time favourite song:
Harry Chapin: "Cats In The Cradle". In my opinion without doubt the most beautiful ballad - depicting a couple of generations of father and son and how the circle of life just continues on.
My son has also recently got me into Slipknot, and prior to that Disturbed and I really LOVE all their CD's.
My daughter has also got me into: Imagine Dragons and their latest song they're playing on the wireless now: "Demons" is a belter. From what I can gather, one of the band members either suffered or is still suffering depression and the song is written about that - and I believe written towards his girlfriend - to not "get too close, it's dark inside, that's where my demons hide, that's where my demons hide". Brilliant song.
When my brother lost his life, at the time his favourite songs were: "You're the Voice" John Farnham (which was played at the start of the service) and the 2nd one, which still makes me cry (but this one is never played on the wireless) is "Miracle" by Jon Bon Jovi - please look it up on You Tube and play it. "Gonna need a miracle, to save you this time, and you're saviour has just left town, Gonna need a miracle, cause it's all on the line and your heartbeat is slowing down ..."
This song was played as we carried him out of the church ... with those words playing, the situation at the time, I don't know how I stood, let alone assist with the carrying of his coffin.
Whoa, sorry all ... boy, I've put a dampner on this ... time for a lift ... another favourite, lifting all our spirits is:
"Austrayliana" by Austen Tayshus. A classic from many years ago; not a song as such, but damn funny stuff.
Way to go Scorch ... I'll be back on here again and again to provide more of my faves.
