Does music help?


#1

I’ve read a lot of posts from people who say music helps them cope with a sick loved one, or even helps themselves if they’ve been diagnosed. I think music can help lift a person out of their doldrums. So easy to get stuck there. There’s an old Irish saying, “Where there is music, there can be no harm.” I’m curious what songs people find helpful. Here’s one I like. It’s an old lullaby.

I’m long been a fan of Sarah Brightman. Quite a voice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3ENX3aHlqU

Don’t know how the guy can sing though, with such a beautiful woman hanging on his shoulder. I’d be like, “AHEM! Please leave room for the Holy Ghost.”

I’ll have to listen to all these postings after work. Here is one from Creed

Yep. That’s an incredibly powerful song. You gotta have a really good car stereo though. And a box of tissues. I love when he baptizes himself in the video. I watched a lifelong heroine addict do that once. Pretty powerful moment.

I love that second video. For some reason, it reminds me of a story my dad told me about a couple relatives of ours. (I won’t mention their names.) They were driving, when suddenly another car plowed into theirs. Except it didn’t. The cars actually passed through each other. They said afterward there was no way they could’ve avoided the accident. Two cars literally passed through each other. No harm, no foul. I’m not saying I believe the story. But it does make me wonder.

This song wasn’t intended for schiz, but some of the lyrics apply.

(Verse One)
Donna fell and lost her way home
Donna fell and lost her way home
Now she’ll never find her way home
Donna fell and lost her way home
Donna fell and lost her way

(Chorus)
And I lie awake
And I lie awake
She’ll never be the same

A blooming flower in wilting hour

And I cried today
And I cried today
‘Cause poor Donna’s lost her way

The love was ours but now she’s gone

(Verse Two)
I grew up in sun and shine
But all of it was left behind

For dreams that said they’d never go
Yet all of them have lost me so

So I looked down the rabbit hole
And found a many sinking soul

Sorrow’s just another way
Please don’t care. ‘Cause I’m okay

Donna fell and lost her way

(Chorus)
And I lie awake
And I lie awake
She’ll never be the same

A blooming flower in wilting hour

And I cried today
And I cried today
‘Cause poor Donna’s lost her way

The love was ours but now she’s gone
