There is nothing like lyrics or a song that hits home.

Over the course of my life, there have been songs and stanzas of songs that have become instantly identifiable and have almost defined a section of my life.

I think music can liberate us, and imprison us at the same time.

What have been yours? And what was going on in your life when it, pardon the pun, struck s chord?

I will attach mine in a bit if someone responds quickly. I get it. Music can motivate.

There's some other stuff in my life. In love with a Russian lady whose artwork sits above my collection of American jazz music. Compartmentalise it to stop WWIII breaking out.

Best friend's song who died ten years ago. Still a very relavant song - imagine something so lyrically 'smart' being in the charts now?

Pretty much anything from As It Is or Pierce The Veil.

For PTV, Bulls In The Bronx and Hold On Till May by Pierce The Veil are both songs I kind of "go to" to ground myself. I like all of their music, but those two really bring me back when I need it.

Patty from AII has a very comforting voice that also brings me back quite easily. I used to watch his videos on YouTube before he even started touring and everything. Any song from The Great Depression is definitely worth the listen if anyone is into pop/punk. They're very intent on breaking the stigma around mental health and so open about their own struggles, while not "romanticizing" mental illness, but also making sure people don't view it as "ugly" either. Just listen. That's my point lol.
