    What is a song that has emotional significance to you right now?

    What is a song that you could play right now that would evoke a strong emotion in you? You don't have to spill personal details or even pick a new song but a story or explanation would be cool and it'd be preferable to post something that brings something that's still fresh and personal to you now. I'd avoid standby's that just give you a general feeling every time and that you just feel that groove or whatnot.

    Anyway, my most recent is this track:

    The Hunna-Mother




    Heard this song first on a playlist created for me by Spotify while working OT at my job. I loved the vibe but when I followed up and read what it was about
    it drudged up these feelings I haven't had in a long time. Thankfully I still have my Mom in good health but I remember the experience spoken in these lyrics with our family (namely my Grandparents) and it makes me feel that lump in my throat. It's a healthy sadness as I don't ever want to forget those last years as painful as they were. I don't want to forget their memory in any way. Those last years gave me time to say goodbye and take everything in despite the bad aspects. I never expected that any of it was going to happen the way it did when I first got that call at work as the lyric

    "I get the call and rush to the car
    Am I going to make it? I'm shaking
    Oh, this is it
    How can this be it?"


    reflects so vividly. It started with a heart attack my grandmother had that I never saw coming. I remember leaving immediately and driving downstate to see my family waiting at the Hospital. My Grammy survived but in the next two years I saw them rise and fall. Some of the most loving moments as my Grammy remembered me despite her health and dementia and she made me feel so loved. Seeing my grandfather be himself again after his mental failings before joining Grammy in the afterlife. Holding their hands when I though I was losing them and the nights before it actually happened is really dug up in this track. Healthy catharsis and reflective memories. Thank you music! [​IMG]<3

    What are yours if you don't mind sharing?

    This song always brings some deep emotions out of me. Billy Corgan is talking about a day he was feeling suicidal. I have felt that way at times and this song kept me going because to know you are not alone with these feelings.

    Nightwish - Swanheart like many from the Tarja era have had emotional significance to me but songs like this stand out. Music is supposed to stir emotion whether positive or negative.

    Brings me back to when I ran away to Jamaica and during that time spent a few cherished days with a lovely pale blonde tourist... Why couldn't you come to stay? :(

    This may not be a 'present' song but it always stirs me emotionally. A typical 60's song with that 60's magic.
