I don’t mean to be dark or morbid, but in the last few months a few people I know, or know of, have passed away and I don’t necessarily want to talk about that (I wrote more here which you can read if you want) but it was in this time that a few songs rose up off my playlists to connect to me in a way they hadn’t before. They helped to comfort, a bit of sunshine after the rain if that makes sense.
In other words, I love God so much, especially that He created music to be so special. It’s those moments when I hear the perfect song at the perfect time that just make things so much brighter, I feel more able to overcome, or even feel sadness on such a deeper level. It’s important to feel these things, I think. I don’t think anyone would suggest that suppressing them would do anyone any good.
Here are the songs that helped me feel the losses deeper, at the same time providing a glimmer of light in the darkness.
Johnny Cash feat. U2 “The Wanderer”
Robert Plant “Rainbow”
Needtobreathe “Who Am I” (click here for a list of songs with similar titles)
KONGOS “This Time I Won’t Forget”
Bart Simpson “Do the Bartman” (kidding, just wanted to end on a light note!)
Thanks for stopping by!
