    Default Songs That Express Your Current State

    Here's a thread to post music videos of songs expressing or representing your current (emotional/mental as in what you're thinking not the crazy kind of mental) state. I actually think this little exercise will be cathartic as music always helps. It's almost like the "What songs are you listening now" thread, except posting these links to music videos or title of songs have a specific purpose. The lyrics of the song or perhaps just the wordless music expresses just what you're feeling now without having to say much yourself. Let the song and music speak on your behalf.

    This thread might serve another purpose to introduce you to some new songs you didn't know of or normally wouldn't hear because of some reason or another. Whatever that reason may be. These selections turn out better than I expected. The first two songs are songs I've heard for the first time because I just youtubed it and somehow, it works well.


    I'll jump start with some of these songs:



    The Raconteurs Live At Reading/Leeds: You Don't Understand Me
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Jnf6LlAs6c

    IV Thieves - You Can't Love What You Don't Understand
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5ycmIti3kE

    Michelle Branch - Are You Happy Now? (um, not exactly a fan of her, but okay lyrics)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s234iz8ykyk

    Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes - If You Don't Know Me By Now (Here's a classic song)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pky3tAt_a6o

    The sentiment of this song seems right.

    This is your song - Ronan Keating

    I've always liked this...

    Last Kiss - Pearl Jam

    Sing it loud when you feel sad, this is quite a suitable song.

    Angel - Robbie Williams
    What can I say? I'm still standing! No weapon against me shall prosper! I am more than a conqueror!!!

    I don't care to sit by the window on an airplane. If I can't control it, why look?

    Mariah Carey - Through The Rain
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0E1BEmCDG8

    Kelly Clarkson - Because of You
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73-V2A3NuWo

    Chris Sligh - Empty Me
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JrvSnQ77Mvc


    I posted Kelly's song before, but it still relevant with the moment. The narrative of the music videos is relatable, and the lyrics too. The songs may seem sad at some point, but in the end hope remains.

    From movie "City of Angels", "Llegar A Ti (Coming To You)" by Jaci Velasquez. Read the translation and you may like it too.

    Translation of lyrics in English:
    click to show/hide spoilers
    Like the rain the desert you are here in me
    Without you I have lived a lot of times without feeling
    I am reborn to life
    A thousand colors awake for you in my existence

    CHORUS:
    I wish I can get by your side
    To feel that you take me by the hand
    I wish I can lose myself in your look (and fly)
    To Feel that your love stops time (and dream)
    To reach you, to reach you (and fly)
    like doves in the sky (and dream)

    Today, I know that by your side 'til the end I will get there
    I know, I know
    For you, new verses are born in every awakening
    My inspiration, my voice
    It is you, the force that makes me believe
    My faith


    Another song I like, the lyrics was one of the reasons.

    "Like A Rose" - A1

    Reflection - Christinia Aguilera; Lyrics
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnXTH88AHqM


    Life is about finding yourself and creating yourself. Everyone (youth, young adult, adults) struggles with self-awareness and realizing their true self. As Shakespeare says, "Be true to thine self". It's an endless journey really to understand and better your relationship with yourself and with others. This song has always been inspiring and a reminder to embrace your true self and be fully aware of things in life.

    BTW, Christina was so young when she first started singing. What a bad hairdo! She must cringe whenever she sees this hairdo.

    This is My Now - Jordin Sparks (another inspiring self-reflection song)

    I don't like this song; I love this song! Sincere and simple words, and doesn't sound very depressive. It makes me want to sway ligtly to the beautiful tune.

    張學友 - 妳知不知道

    This, from my favourite TVB drama, starring Gordon Lam and Maggie Cheung.

    Jacky Cheung / Priscilla Chan - 接近

    Jacky Cheung - 愛和承若

    I am filled with feelings and thoughts to embrace life and live life fully and worthy of it.

    THis song...for my current mood at work...feeling like crap but I have to keep up no matter how I dislike it. I can't shout-out at FB otherwise "my mom" would nag at me at MSN.

    我吃得起苦

    走出去就有路
    寻见了 就有福
    拥有了一切 都进了包袱
    思念是带不走的

    天空 疑云密布
    心中 翻腾起伏
    虽将飘摇 前途仍模糊
    此地会是我 衣锦还乡处

    飘洋过海 我吃得起苦
    相信天无绝人之路
    现实有咒诅 梦里有祝福
    有缘同舟 风雨共渡

    顶着烈日当空 眼底有迷雾
    不能再让懦弱困住
    日子多坎坷 命运有变数
    只盼久旱逢甘露
    What can I say? I'm still standing! No weapon against me shall prosper! I am more than a conqueror!!!
