Music! it helps us, It defines our lives, It can change who you are.

This last week has been a horrible week, so much has happened and none of it good.

It has been one of the hardest weeks of my life, and I don’t really know where to go from here.

I’m not going to go into details but enough to say that I’m at a turning point in my life and I have two choices do I go left or right?

Do I fight or give up?

It’s at times like this I retreat into myself to figure out what it is that I’m going to do and over the last couple of days I’ve been listening to a lot of music.

And I thought dawned on me. Why is it when you are facing depression, and your life is falling apart do we fall back on the music we listened to when growing up?

I guess it has something to do with it being comforting and putting you back to a time when the only worries you had was homework and sneaking back in the house when you’re out later than you were meant to be

 

It’s at times like this when you also understand greater meaning behind the words.

 

At different times in life, it’s different bands that have affected me like this. A few years ago I was dealing with depression and the thought of killing myself and the loss of a truly great friend. At that time it was Snow Patrol, I was listening too, and their songs are now so filled with pain, meaning and loss for me that I can’t listen to them now without welling up.

 

This time I have fallen back onto one of my favourite bands, Travis.

Over the last few days, a few of their songs have been swimming in my head, and I’ve listened to them a lot.

 

I was wondering if anyone else does this or is it just me?

 

So I wanted to share them with you. I don’t know how well Travis are known outside of the UK, but they are a band from Scotland and were a huge part of my life when I was growing up. In my opinion one of the best bands from the 90’s

  1. I loved the first song, probably because it had a banjo. This band is great though. It doesn’t even sound like it’s from the nineties, it’s pretty contemporary.
    I’m sorry your going through a hard time right now. 😟 For your sake, I sincerely hope it gets resolved quickly. You asked if you should fight or give up, but the question is whether you want to fight for whatever it is. Try to not let your emotions rule your brain. Because how you feel now might not be how your feel later. But im not the the best person when it comes to emotional advice, I’m stunted in that area a bit. Just know, you are a sweet, great guy.

    I get what you mean about certain songs helping. Im glad youve got something to calm you. I sing strange songs when I’m down or depressed. Usually ones from the sound track to O’ Brother Where Art Thou.
