Morning all,

I have had a long week or two and we had a family wedding and, as with these events, some people were not there (like my Dad). I am not being morbid but some music really affects me and i think that, perhaps, that is a good thing as it releases some emotion - sometimes privately. If anyone wishes to share this - please do. One song (limit is three) would be good. No explanations are required.

I have three -

Johnny Cash - Hurt - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3aF9AJm0RFc

Kate Bush - The Woman's Work - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEHqPCA_lzQ

Temple of the Dog - Hunger Strike - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUb450Alpps

These songs all mean a lot to me for different reasons and they make me sad and happy at the same time - hard to explain. I have many more but i like a lot of music and i have picked these as i have listened to them tonight as it is probably the last time i will ever see my Aunt as she is heading home.

Good night RBers - you are all stars,

Richard

Spirits Having Flown because it reminds me of some good times in my life and because it's such a wonderfully constructed song. I could never play it (or even listen to it) without really feeling that change from verse to chorus (A/Dm/Gm7), it pushes on and lifts you up, it's emotional stuff.(at about 1.23) Yes, some very, very good times that we can never have back.

And this because I'm Manx.

Van Halen - Jump

It's the song that my best friend went through the curtains to at the Crematorium.

RIP Gareth Baber :)

I can think of many songs that effect me in many ways, here's just the first three off the top of my head.

Billy Bragg/Wilco lyrics by Woody Guthrie - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwcQAlRn0Gs

Cocteau Twins - Iceblink luck - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wl5EqjtRuGU

Sia - Breathe me - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFGvmrJ5rjM

I Appear Missing by Queens of the Stone Age for personal reasons.

Gate 21 by Serj Tankian because It's such a beautiful song, and the live version is astonishing.

We Used to Know by Jethro Tull, most mournful guitar solo ever and The Eagles ripped it off and turned it into Hotel California.

Probably the only time you'll see anyone post this...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ObJWIEQlhu4

...but I remember my Grandfather singing it to my Nan when I was very small, and I still like it to this day.

This...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qr3dWscslo8

...because it reminds me of someone special from when I was 18 :|

And this...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSIw09oqsYo

...because it's my most favourite song ever 8)

I can remember it well because I would have been about 8 or 9 years old - funnily enough, I like it too.
