So, what are your personal anthems?<br><br>
personal anthems being those songs that you can really relate to - so much that they seem to have been written about you.. or that you practically could've written yourself!<br><br><br><br>
I know i have quite a few.. but i can't remember most of them right now though.. but anyway.. here goes what i do remember!<br><br><br><br>
"Welcome to the New South" by Less than Jake<br><br>
"Peaceful Day" by Pennywise<br><br><br><br>
At the time being i'm really relating to "Three's a Charm" by the Starting Line and "Dead on Arrival" by Fall Out Boy.. *sigh*<br><br><br><br>
i'll post others as soon as I can think of them .. perhaps sharing lyrics or saying what the song is about ... but I don't feel like doing that right now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

Right now, I'm really relating to "My Immortal" by Evanesence, and "Shame" by Stabbing Westward.<br><br><br><br>
I'm hoping that changes soon, though. ^^;;

I have a few, depending on what type of mood I'm in.<br><br><br><br>
Walk On by U2 is kind of my "life sucks, but don't let them get to you" song.<br><br><br><br><i>And love is not the easy thing<br><br>
The only baggage you can bring...<br><br>
And love is not the easy thing...<br><br>
The only baggage you can bring<br><br>
Is all that you can't leave behind<br><br><br><br>
And if the darkness is to keep us apart<br><br>
And if the daylight feels like it's a long way off<br><br>
And if your glass heart should crack<br><br>
And for a second you turn back<br><br>
Oh no, be strong<br><br><br><br>
Walk on, walk on<br><br>
What you got, they can't steal it<br><br>
No they can't even feel it<br><br>
Walk on, walk on<br><br>
Stay safe tonight...<br><br><br><br>
You're packing a suitcase for a place none of us has been<br><br>
A place that has to be believed to be seen<br><br>
You could have flown away<br><br>
A singing bird in an open cage<br><br>
Who will only fly, only fly for freedom<br><br><br><br>
Walk on, walk on<br><br>
What you got they can't deny it<br><br>
Can't sell it or buy it<br><br>
Walk on, walk on<br><br>
Stay safe tonight<br><br><br><br>
And I know it aches<br><br>
And your heart it breaks<br><br>
And you can only take so much<br><br>
Walk on, walk on<br><br><br><br>
Home...hard to know what it is if you never had one<br><br>
Home...I can't say where it is but I know I'm going home<br><br>
That's where the heart is<br><br><br><br>
I know it aches<br><br>
How your heart it breaks<br><br>
And you can only take so much<br><br>
Walk on, walk on<br><br><br><br>
Leave it behind<br><br>
You've got to leave it behind<br><br>
All that you fashion<br><br>
All that you make<br><br>
All that you build<br><br>
All that you break<br><br>
All that you measure<br><br>
All that you steal<br><br>
All this you can leave behind<br><br>
All that you reason<br><br>
All that you sense<br><br>
All that you speak<br><br>
All you dress up<br><br>
All that you scheme...</i><br><br><br><br><br><br>
That I Would be Good by Alanis Morisette is my "life sucks, but don't let yourself get to you" song.<br><br><br><br><i>that I would be good even if I did nothing<br><br>
that I would be good even if I got the thumbs down<br><br>
that I would be good if I got and stayed sick<br><br>
that I would be good even if I gained ten pounds<br><br><br><br>
that I would be fine even if I went bankrupt<br><br>
that I would be good if I lost my hair and my youth<br><br>
that I would be great if I was no longer queen<br><br>
that I would be grand if I was not all knowing<br><br><br><br>
that I would be loved even when I numb myself<br><br>
that I would be good even when I am overwhelmed<br><br>
that I would be loved even when I was fuming<br><br>
that I would be good even if I was clingy<br><br><br><br>
that I would be good even if I lost sanity<br><br>
that I would be good<br><br>
whether with or without you</i><br><br><br><br>
There's more, but I think that's enough for now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Man... what a great tune.<br><br><br><br>
I suppose some of mine would have to include:<br><br><br><br>
Eighteen - Alice Cooper<br><br>
Takin' Care of Business - BTO<br><br>
Ziggy Stardust - David Bowie<br><br>
Life's Been Good - Joe Walsh<br><br>
Freebird - Lynyrd Skynrd<br><br>
Anarchy in the USA - Motley Crue<br><br><br><br>
And just about anything from RUSH<br><br><br><br>
Wow... way too many more to list now that I think about it.<br><br><br><br>
Edited to add: I do not think these songs all relate specifically to myself.. but are the type of songs that can be related through different periods of my life or of the lives of those pretty close to me. Thus, I feel each is appropriate.

Magic Man... good call.<br><br><br><br>
AJ, I actually thought, and still think, Cyndi Lauper's Money Changes Everything is a pretty cool tune <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br><br><br>
I just realized two more... cannot believe I forgot them the first time. Both by The Who.<br><br><br><br>
Won't get Fooled Again<br><br>
Baba O'Riley (most folks know this one as "Teenage Wasteland")

I don't know if this one can be even be but in this category, but the song that I always felt somehow was a little about me was, -and is- , "Fox in the snow" by Belle and Sebastian.<br><br><br><br>
Yup. Maybe this is better suited in the "song that is tear catalyst" thread....
