Thread Name: Songs of hope and healing
Subject: RE: BS: Songs of hope and healing
As of Mouldy's post, 74 songs recommended and seem to represent at least seven stages of a healing cycle: Awakening (songs that remind life worth living). Assurance (you've got a friend, friends, family). Acceptance (it sucks to be sick, but..). Encouragement (you can take another step, steps). Prayer/supplication (heal me, send some of that balm of gilead, give me peace, oh river). Laughter, the Best Medicine (please, can somebody rephrase that without the cliche?). Resignation/surrender (I'm headed back to the old brown earth and maybe I'll pass this way again). Would it be wrong to set up threads under those headings and try to organize and, with feedback, eliminate my guesswork (I'm unfamiliar with about half the songs suggested)? Thanks to all, and a special thanks for the blue clicky on "It's a Pleasure to Know You."
