[DISCUSSION] Good Music for Bad Times

We know a lot of us at ATY are worried about Daesung and all the people affected by his accident, and that waiting and worrying is really hard.  Since we are mostly music lovers here, what are the songs that help you get through your troubles, whatever they are?

Our picks below the cut

Share some of it for the rest of us – any time period, genre or language welcome. (And if you feel like sharing more, let us know why you picked that song.)

We tried putting together some of our own picks and as you can see, we have quite a range.

Bluemaid’s Picks

Sarah Mclachlan – Angel

Nina Simone – Ain’t Got No

Beyonce Knowles and Walter Williams, Sr. – He Still Loves Me (Fighting Temptations OST)

Toozdae’s Picks

Adele – Make You Feel My Love

Because I feel the lyrics so portray how I feel at the moment : “When the rain is blowing in your face and the whole world is on your case,  I could offer you a warm embrace to make you feel my love”

Shout to the Lord

This song is about God and how He can heal a person – shows how God has helped me overcome problems several times in my life.

Five for Fighting – Superman

Emeline Michel – A.K.I.K.O.

This is a Haitian song from my childhood and it makes me smile every time I hear it. It’s an empowering song about people being uplifted and gives me peace.

  1. Hmm. These are some of the songs I listen to during difficult times. Not all are uplifting, but still help me get back up from whatever I am facing.

    Reading YG’s statement about Daesung’s current condition is heartbreaking. And then to read the victim’s family’s thoughts and struggles; and how his parents still don’t know…I can’t even imagine.

    Coldplay – Fix You

    Green Day – Time of Your Life

    Green Day – Wake Me Up When September Ends

    Bee Gees – I Started A Joke

    Justin Timberlake – Until the End of Time

  2. i want to find a song that will suit the situation the most but couldnt find one. so im going to go with this one! DAESUNG ah…i hope you are fine and much love gose out to you..you are not alone!

  3. I used to song this song to my daugther everytime she cried, Daesung you are our sunshine so please don’t lose your smile

    Sad but so beautiful song and Movie

    1. a man is placed upon the steps, a baby cries
      and high above the church bells start to ring
      and as the heaviness the body oh the heaviness settles in
      somewhere you can hear a mother sing

      then it’s one foot then the other as you step out onto the road
      how much weight? how much weight?
      then it’s how long? and how far?
      and how many times before it’s too late?

      calling all angels
      calling all angels
      walk me through this one
      don’t leave me alone
      calling all angels
      calling all angels
      we’re cryin’ and we’re hurtin’
      and we’re not sure why…

      and every day you gaze upon the sunset
      with such love and intensity
      it’s almost…it’s almost as if
      if you could only crack the code
      then you’d finally understand what this all means

      but if you could…do you think you would
      trade in all the pain and suffering?
      ah, but then you’d miss
      the beauty of the light upon this earth
      and the sweetness of the leaving

      calling all angels
      calling all angels
      walk me through this one
      don’t leave me alone
      callin’ all angels
      callin’ all angels
      we’re tryin’
      we’re hopin’
      we’re hurtin’
      we’re lovin’
      we’re cryin’
      we’re callin’
      ’cause we’re not sure how this goes

  4. You are loved (Don’t give up) – Timo Räisänen (It’s a cover but I think he does it better than the original c: )

  5. More than anything the video along with the song always make me feel good,I’d like the same for Daesungie..it makes me feel so bad to know he’s been crying over this whole thing,be strong Dae!

  6. When I read the title the song that immediately came into my mind was ‘Make you feel my love’ Adele’s version. It’s THE most calming song for me,I always listen to it. The lyrics and the meaning of the song is just…so deep its touching and she sings it so well.

    Another song is Alecia Keys’ ‘If I aint got you’ again the depth of the lyircs/meaning and the ability of the musician to touch hearts is ideal for times when you feel really down.

    “Some people think that the physical things define what’s within…but that lifes a bore so full of the superficial ”

  7. this song reminds me of the poem.. and its something that we all need to be reminded of everyday..

    “The LORD replied, my precious, precious child, I Love you and I would never leave you! During your times of trial and suffering when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.”

  8. to me, there’s a song called If I Was God by Natalia Kills cuz even how sad i am, when i listen to it, all my fears and tears and sadness will just go. There’s a line in the song says ”If I was god, what would i change?” and i always asking myself that

  9. for me this song is more than a good song >>> at that time i was accupaid in the weakness of the liver disease but i was cheer up my self everyday when i hear that song for first time i understand it all, for the lyrics was so easy to understand, made me feel the strength in me ..

    i give my self yesterday a break and listening to the songs that i love from my best idols and this subject makes remembering this great song .. now i wash that every one hear it again and find the right bath in success again ^^.

  10. i knw dis s very late coz iv only read dis topic today,but i juz wana add to the list my “must listen to” song wenever i fil down and it’s Stacie Oricco’s Strong Enough…evrytym i listen to this,i get teary eyed coz through diz song i can rili feel how great God’s love is no matter what and who you are..ü
