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 bad.

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.

HAH! Another Collective Soul fan eh? Good stuff isn't it.

Taking an approach from multiple points of hope and determination or survival, I think my 3 would be:

Creamer by Limp Bizkit
Woods of Chaos by Rob Costlow and
True Self by Soil

(Breaking the rules)
Another would be Extreme Ways by Moby
and Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve
and maybe Lakini's Juice by Live and some Zeromancer mixed with Miss American Pie by Don Mclean and End of Innocence By Don Henley

Ok no more, I'm starting to list my playlist here LOL. It doesn't change much either.

I walk a few miles every night and I would not nearly enjoy it as much without my mp3 player. Sometimes I enjoy the silence but nothing can make the mood like music!

Brothers In Arms - Dire Straits

Invincible - Muse

Tears In Heaven - Eric Clapton

I think that the above songs would keep me going. Anything by the almighty Led Zeppelin would also do the job nicely

Savage- I Love the island

Israel Kamakawiwo'ole - Somewhere Over The Rainbow

Fiji - Tribal War

This music would inspires me to get off my a$$ and do what it takes to live like my Ancestors did. Tribal war would just pump me up if i had to take you down! Listen so some of them they are relaxing

Interesting. The ones that strike a chord whenever I hear them.

What a Wonderful World- Louis Armstrong- because it rings of peace, harmony.

Comfortably Numb- Pink Floyd- ending lyrics "the dream is gone" strikes me for dreams lost as we grow up and lose/change sight of the world.

Time Runs Wild- Danny Wylde- for loves lost.

Petula Clark - Downtown

I just have to share this. I posted my three songs right after the thread went up and then went to bed shortly thereafter.

I had a dream that I was in the movie Romeo and Juliet (the one with Clair Danes and Leo Dicaprio) and I was walking around in a daze looking for someone to explain the plot to. Haven't watched that movie or thought of it for years.

I wake up, and check the thread for others' songs, and a couple posts after mine someone posted a clip to that movie.

Kinda neat.

Great thread, btw, I've already added to my ipod based on it!

My 3 - John Lennon I saw it here already and I strongly agree!!

1.) Imagine - Lennon

2.) No Suprises - Radiohead

3.) Pieces of What - MGMT

(Actually, I'd need the whole oracular spectacular cd)

when the world has turned
paralyzed and wrong
cold blooded claws
never offered anything at all
past the point of love
shattered and untied
waiting to pick up the pieces
that make it all alright

but pieces of what
pieces of what
pieces of what
doesn't matter any more

moonlight on my floor
shining through the roof
they got the city surrounded
as if I needed proof
i forgot my fear
feelings on the rise
burying all of the pieces
falling from the sky

but pieces of what
pieces of what
pieces of what
we used to call home
pieces of what
we used to call home

when i drank your tea
and shallow water still
at the belgian gates
i waited for my meal

(pieces of what - MGMT)

2.Flowers-Cross Canadian Ragweed

Redemption Song - Bob Marley

Old Soul Song (For the New World Order) - Bright Eyes

The Tain - The Decemberists

Riot Maker - Tech N9ne

Plus all of The Beatles, John Lennon, Led Zeppelin (When The Levvee Breaks is a favorite), ZZ Top, Tom Petty. These all remind me of being a kid and put me in a good state of mind.

Love these songs, love these groups. I could listen to them forever and they always get me in a good mood.

I'd prefer to have my whole iPod if I could though. Music keeps me going.

Add on regarding liveandlearn's post below me, CCR is always a winner.
