Subject: Looking for good therapy songs,preferably Canadian
From: GUEST,Larry The Radio Guy
Date: 07 May 14 - 03:41 AM

Hi folks,

I've just started a new radio program on PeachCityRadio.org called "Musical Therapy".......which explores counselling or psychotherapy, and it's relationship to music. There will be a variety of topics.....positive psychology, making it through relationships, Mindfulness, Disengaging Depression, Finding Meaning, The joy of Connection, etc.

Right now I'm working on one called Codependency: the Give and Take of Giving and Taking.   I've found a lot of good songs (Eg. Addicted by Cheryl Wheeler/Dan Seals, Girl—The Beatles, lots of Dory Previn, Who's Gonna Shoe Your Pretty Little Foot, American Gothic by David Ackles, Reptile--The Church, I need more Canadian songs (as we have a 35% Canadian content rule for 'on air' broadcasting (which we're striving for).

Any ideas? They can be about codependency, about giving, about taking, or a positive intervention that counteracts either extreme.

Any genre of music is acceptable.

Thanks.

-Larry

Four Strong Winds (Ian & Sylvia). For Lovin' Me (Gordon Lightfoot). Both Sides Now (Joni Mitchell). That's No Way To Say Goodbye (Leonard Cohen). The back catalog of those four Canadian artists alone should do you for your whole series. For variety, throw in a little Eileen McGann, and James Keelaghan.

don't know if Joni Mitchell still qualifies as Canadian but several of her songs would seem to be appropriate from any or all of the perspectives you mentioned.

Leonard Cohen is a bit trickier, but "Bird On a Wire" comes to mind.

In the midst of my own music fog I am at present blanking on a number of Canadian "roots" singer/songwriters that I have come across on "Music Fog" over the past several years - and of course can not recall any of them for now. Unfortunately, I tend to pay much more attention to the song than to who does it or where they are from these days - so not much help. But would love to listen in on your series. Will it be streamed or available for podcast on-line? If so, please give links and dates if not available for later podcasts.

Thanks too Janie-----I do have a lot of Leonard Cohen already (I'm a fan). Any particular Joni Mitchell songs that you think qualify as either being therapeutic, are about therapy, or have some kind of a therapy theme?

Gerry....Both Sides Now does fit, I think. Maybe even 4 Strong Winds---although I'm not sure.    And I'll check out Eileen McCann and James Keelaghan. Any particular songs you'd recommend as relating to the topic(s)?

Ladies of the Canyon "Blue Boy"

A cool satire re: psychoanalysis, that Joni covered on Court and Spark (written, I think, by Annie Ross) "Twisted." Several people have covered it, but I really like Mitchell's cover.

Not for this current show you mention, and not Canadian, but take a listen for future shows to the music and songwriting of Mary Gauthier and Paul Thorn. Thorn is somewhat outrageous but often very therapeutic. Honest, thoughtful, and real.

Lynn Miles "Love Doesn't Hurt"

Subject: RE: Looking for good therapy songs,preferably Canadian
From: Larry The Radio Guy
Date: 08 May 14 - 10:47 PM

I must say, I'm getting some great ideas!

In answer to Janie's question: The show begins....and will run indefinitely at first on stream and on our 'on demand programming' link where you can hear them whenever you want.   Just go to peachcityradio.org.   (Right now I'm just finishing up a series of programs called "Larry Saidman's Top 200 Albums Of All Time"). The Musical Therapy program is slated to start June 15.

I've found some great Canadian songs I'll be using thanks to all of you who responded. (and keep those posts coming!).

Thanks Janie for the Joni Mitchell suggestions. I'll use For THe Roses and The Arrangment (for the "Love or Money" episode), For Free (MIndfulness), Morning Morgantown (Serenity), and Willie (for the one I'm working on now on codependency). Also Circle Game (Life's Journey, Surviving Childhood episodes).

As well, Love Doesn't Hurt by Lynn Miles is great for the one on Transforming Abusive Relationships. And another one of hers called Three Chords and The Truth is for the "Search for Meaning" episode.

(Of the non-Canadian ones, that one Paul Thorn song, I Have A Good Day Every Now and Then is a great 'Positive Psychology' song.

Howard, I looked at the song titles and lyrics for the James Gordon cd. Wow! I'm about to order the cd..there's one about someone with social anxiety facing it by becoming an actor (based on a true story), there's one about conquering the stigma of mental illness, and so many more.   Thanks for suggesting that one.

Others I'll use:

What a Friend We Have in Therapy by Susan Lawrence...I'll throw it in in the "Religion and Therapy" episode. Thanks again Howard

Fit Together by Carleton Stone ...for the 'Connection and Disconnection' episode. thanks Ed T

Chapel of Love--Dixie Cups   for "Play Therapy" Thanks Joe.

Both Sides Now--Joni Mitchell for the "Search for Meaning" episode, and her later recording of it for the "Life's Journey" episode (thanks Gerry).

and the biggest surprise.

Evalyn Parry. I'd never heard of her before. But She Rides is so wonderful---I can use it for the programs on "Freedom", "Self-Empowerment", and "Movement and Exercise".   Thanks Dorothy.

In fact, I like that one so much, I think I'll post it here.

Your suggestions are appreciated.   I think i have enough now for the co-dependency program (although if you find a dynamite one I don't have, I can add it).

But any other therapeutic themes......they can be sad and intense, or fun and lively......but it's important that there be a spark of hope in each of them....or at least a sense of feeling 'understood'.

Thanks again.   Keep em coming.

-Larry

On Marie-Lynn Hammond's album "Hoofbeats", released in 2013, there is a song "Emily Flies" which she describes as follows:

I've always known about therapeutic riding, but little did I know I'd experience it first hand after a serious accident left me with a brain injury. Many people have no idea that horses can provide powerful physical, mental and emotional therapy for children and adults with disabilities. This song is based on the kids and horses I've met at three such facilities.

This tune (copyright 2006) may be helpful?


Sometimes - S. McPhail 2006

G               G7             C    C7
Sometimes every day seems like monday
F             Fm                C    C7
Sometimes the whole world looks gray
F                            C               Am
You've loved and lost but you always paid the cost
Dm                      G7
You don't owe a thing to yesterday.

Life seems like a game that we've been playing
Ace is high but pairs always win
Sometimes the Joker is the dealer
Sometimes we have to take it with a grin.

Come sit by my side little darlin'
Let us talk it over you and me
I'd like to believe we're gonna make it
Our river's gonna make it to the sea.

Sometimes all the roads go nowhere
And you've been down all of them before
You gotta play the game that doesn't have a name
You don't even get to know the score.

Sometimes life just seems like mondays
Sometimes the whole world looks gray
You ain't got no shoes but you're still on your feet
It seems to me you're doing okay.

So pack up your worries in that old kit bag
Remember what they told you in school
That life is really only what you make it
You can be a winner or a fool.

I just want to thank all of you who have given me such great ideas for music for my radio program.....particularly the Canadian songs I was struggling to find.

Thanks to your input, I found about another 20 songs that I'll be using for various shows.   Even Mary Ellen Carter (I changed my mind on that one.....it's a great one related to many different topics; it's even a 'gratitude' song).

I've completed scripting 6 episodes already----three on the topic of "What is Therapy", and 3 episodes called "The Give and Take of Giving and Taking-----Codependency".   I found lots of great songs for those episodes.

The program will being on peachcityradio.org June 15 at 9A.M. with various repetitions, and on the following Wednesday will be loaded into our 'on demand' stream so you can listen whenever.

We are working on getting a full FM broadcast license as well.

Janie requested that I bring this thread back when the first program is available........so I'll do that, maybe for the first couple.

Then, as I start doing other topics and begin to look for songs related to them, I may put out another call to Mudcat.

You'll notice that in my first 6 programs, a lot of the songs you folks suggested are on it.....and others will be on future episodes.

Thanks again.    I suspect mudcatters will find this show quite interesting-----much more so than my previous show (which is ending June 8) called Larry Saidman's Top 200 Albums of All Time.

OK.....Janie asked me to let you know when the Musical Therapy PRogram is ready to launch.

I have about 8 episodes in the can and I'm working on more......and this Sunday, 9A.M. Pacific Time is when the first episode airs on our on-line station.

There will definitely be a lot of 'mudcat' influence---and even some direct references---in a few of the programs. And many of the songs you've suggested *will* be used.

Thank you.

Episodes will be aired.

Sundays @ 0900h
Mondays @ 0100h
Tuesdays @ 2100h
Wednesdays @ 1500h


You can hear it at these times through
peachcityradio.org

Then Wednesdays at 4PM (Pacific Time), it will be downloaded into our On Demand Programs.

I'd also love it if any of you would visit my facebook page called:
"Musical Therapy on Peach City Radio"
give me some feedback, maybe give the page a 'like' and use the link to give you the opportunity to listen to any of the programs at your convenience.

I really appreciate how helpful mudcatters have been in helping me get this program off the ground.   I welcome any ideas as to how to make it better.

And yes......I like the McGarrigles and have a few of their songs.   And Laurs Smith's "I Didn't Dream" is an amazing song about dealing with a loved one with alzheimers.

About halfway through the show, Larry. Realizing as I listen I don't know what your own goal is doing this series of shows. Also don't know who your target audience is.

Thanks for the feedback, Janie.

I've always had trouble w. 'focus'.......being the extreme 'eclectic'. Lots of potential target audiences---therapists who want to expand the way they think about issues, potential clients who want to explore new ways of looking at things, people interested in exploring different music, etc.

I'd be interested in knowing who you think would be the best 'target' for such a show, then I could start thinking about such an audience as I put together future shows.

I find that laughter is the best therapy. Try Frozen Logger.

Not Canadian but some of my titles will give you an idea of the 'therapeutic' song that I have written.

Thanks Bert. I'm sure I can find a use for THe Frozen Logger in one of my Musical THerapy programs.


And thank you, Guest# for the J.P. Cormier song. Will be a good one for a program on Post-traumatic stress, and it certainly emphasizes the need for resources to be set aside for treatment those suffering from the trauma of being involved in fighting wars.

When it is up "on demand" I am going to take another listen, and will pm, rather than put folks to sleep here with any thoughts I may have. Who is your listenership? What are their demographics and interests?

I've got a few more songs for you, hope these are apt. Some are what I consider 'healing', some are thereutic in the way the blues are; stating that you've been 'there' and you are still 'here', and some are even Canadian:

Pack Up Your Sorrow- Mimi and Richard Farina

The Farmer's Song-written by the vastly underrecognized Canadian
            songwriter, Murray McLaughlin-about the farmer:
       " These days when everyone's taking so much
There's somebody giving back in "

The Needle and the Damage Done- Neil Young (Canadian)

Hallelujah- Leonard Cohen (Canadian)

Amazing Grace (Judy Collins or any version)

Lay Down Your Weary Tune- Bob Dylan

Forever Young- Bob Dylan

Wind Beneath My Wings- Bette Midler

during a hospital stay i found beth orton, bert jansch, eels and especially john martyn really helpful. obviously not canadian but far out when on the strong painkilllers. small hours, head and heart etc just trippy anyway - just what is needed when you want to escape this world and all its hideousness. gillian welch - i dream a highway -meanders on beautifully forever and if you insist on canadian - hejira is one long, soothing and interesting ride.
but if therapy is what you need - let a lovely and quiet spot in the countryside choose you and just sit there.

If it's not too late for it to be useful, I'd like to suggest another possible source of relevant songs. There's a double-LP re-release on CD titled "Songs of Couch and Consultation / Life is Just a Bed of Neuroses". The description on Amazon says this:
Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away...the cults of psychoanalysis and psycho-babble were just a gleam in some misfits eye. Here, those pseudo-sciences are lampooned to delirious effect. The teaming of folk-cabaret chanteuse Katie Lee with lyricist Bud Freeman and composer Leon Pober resulted in the 1957 satirical masterpiece Songs Of Couch And Consultation. Numbers like Repressed Hostility Blues and The Will To Fail have, if anything, gained more traction in today's over-analyzed, over-medicated world. The LP received rave notices and even spawned a sequel, 1960's Life Is Just A Bed Of Neuroses. Remastered sound with exclusive liner notes, rare photos, ephemera and extra tracks. 35 track compilation first time on CD!
I'm not actually familiar with the songs, though I recalled the title recently.

Also, I found the first episode on the Peach City Radio website filed under Programs | Podcasts, not under Programs | On-Demand Listening.

Thanks Howard. It's now on our on demand listening.   

And I will make a special note to try find that "Songs of Couch and Consultation/Life is Just a Bed Of Neuroses. Now that I think about it, I think I'd once heard about it.

And achmelvich: I'm thrilled to hear you mention The Eels. Not much better therapy songs (both in terms of the affliction and the cure) than those great songs of Mark Oliver Everett. And I'll definitely give a listen to Heijira by Joni Mitchell. I do have lots of Joni Mitchell I'll be using for various shows.

And lefthanded guitar....thanks for suggesting The Farmer's Song. That particular line of someone giving back in......a great one for my "Giving Back" episode. (Wish I'd thought of it before I recorded by programs on "The Give and Take of Giving and Taking".
