I remember watching the TV show "John Doe" and one episode was focused on "The Soundtrack of your Life". It delved into the psychology of how
music can actually help map your life. Songs you hear throughout your life are like mental markers and that song can bring back that memory, good or
For instance, I remember getting my first car and the first tape I played was Ozzy and the first song I heard was Centre of Eternity. Everytime I
hear Ozzy, I think of that day driving my first car for the first time and listening to that tape.
I think to pick three songs would be a gross injustice to the achievable. If I never put another song on my iPod, I could be happy with what is on
there now for a very long time to come.
So, I would have to choose it by band or genre.
No matter what, it would have to have Kamelot on it and any other Symphonic Speed Metal that was available at a grab. Alternatively, Godsmack and
Drowning Pool would be my next choices.
In my current reality, whenever I get stressed out, I turn up the metal and let it tear down the walls of my frustrations and I am able to focus and
concentrate without allowing the cares and worries of my mind and the world to invade me. If I were to survive in a horrid environment, I would think
that would be my greatest asset of distraction from my situation, helping me to cope and move on with focus.
