Day 13 - A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough ass days


I found Sarah McLachlan about 7 years ago.  It was when my sister, her husband, SI and I decided to go to a concert - so I listened to her music so I would be familiar and be able to enjoy the concert.  At the concert, I really took a liking to the music even more; and I quickly became a fan.  I found more songs that I was able to relate to, and I liked not only her voice, but the simplicity of the sound - where you can actually hear the words and feel the emotion.

After my break up I was sad.  Very sad.  I found solace in listening to Sarah McLachlan.  It wasn't because SI was the one that introduced me (in fact, I forgot about that until I write this).  I have so many of her songs on my ipod and would just play them all and try to relax, fall asleep, or cry.  Aferglow is my favorite album and among my favorite songs are Train Wreck, Fallen, and Stupid.  I know that this album has the same tone and many of the songs sound the same but I can't get enough. 

I look forward to listening to some of her newer music.

What other songs were on my breakup list?  Here, I will share some:
Bee Gees - If I can't have you
Brian Adams - Please forgive me
Chicago - Hard habit to break
Diana Ross - Where did our love go?
Donna Summer - I will survive

Janis Joplin - Piece of my heart

  1. That's a pretty impressive list Denise.
    A great break up song is "I Went By" sung by Louise Marshall on the Jools Holland album The Informer, if you get chance you should listen to it,I know you can find it on youtube:)
