Everyone has them. Songs that really spoke to you when you heard them for the first time, possibly affected your life.

I have two, and they are both by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Scar Tissue and Soul to Squeeze. The first time I heard Scar Tissue it inspired me to learn guitar, and Soul to Squeeze helped me survive depression.
He's a freak of nature, but we love him so.

Music isn't the Olympics. It's not about showing other people what you can do with a piece of wood in your hands that has strings on, it's about making sounds that are good.

all that remains got me into heavier metal stuff in 8th grade

protest the hero got me into technical guitar stuff back when kezia came out
etc.

this particular performance of iron and wine's/sam beam's "the trapeze swinger." the way his voice rises and falls, and he projects more than he usually does. even though it's a simple fingerpicking style, the way he performs it is amazing.

Are you asking if midgets can draw people that are themselves smaller than the average person, or if midget drawings in general are smaller?

Dream On - Aerosmith

Its just so inspiring.


Eyes of a Stranger - Queensryche

Theres so much emotion in this song that I can't just listen to it, I have to LISTEN to it.

I've had a couple of runs in with cocaine and this song describes it perfectly. I listen to it and sometimes I get angry, sometimes I get sad, but it will always be a headbanger!
