I don't know so much as it relates to someone with SA per se, but the cd Plans by Death Cab for Cutie has music that "sensitive" people could relate to. Uggh, I hate that description 'sensitive' and especially "highly sensitive" but I'm struggling to come up with a better descriptor of someone that the cd would appeal to. I really think the cd is awesome.

"I don't think there's necessarily a story, but there's definitely a theme here. One of my favorite kind of dark jokes is, 'How do you make God laugh? You make a plan.' Nobody ever makes a plan that they're gonna go out and get hit by a car. A plan almost always has a happy ending. Essentially, every plan is a tiny prayer to Father Time. I really like the idea of a plan not being seen as having definite outcomes, but more like little wishes."

Considering that quote from Ben Gibbard, I'd say that yeah, it relates quite well.

Also, No Sunlight off Narrow Stairs if you are a bit of a pessimist. Couple of things from Give Up by Postal Service also seem to relate quite well to me.

Transatlanticism is currently my favourite album, though. It varies between that and Plans quite a bit.

Oh, also, I think a lot of Joy Division songs could be seen as relevant, even if they are more about epilepsy than social anxiety. They can definitely be interpreted as being about it, anyway.

The lead singer of the band "say anything" has social anxiety so a lot of his songs are easy to relate to.

Also lifeline by paparoach, boulevard of broken dreams by greenday, panic switch by silversun pickups, real world by matchbox twenty

Alot of Dream Theater songs seem to be about anxiety or social anxiety so I'm guessing someone in the band (probably the vocalist has anxiety/sa). The song "Space Dye Vest" and the song "Panic Attack" (which is just obvious). And I know this song probably isn't about sa but the song "Something In The Way" always make's me think about my sa. There's just something in the way, ya know?

Another one, "Pieces", also by Sum 41.

I tried to be perfect
But nothing was worth it
I don't believe it makes me real
I thought it'd be easy
But no one believes me
I meant all the things I said

If you believe it's in my soul
I'd say all the words that I know
Just to see if it would show
That I'm trying to let you know
That I'm better off on my own

This place is so empty
My thoughts are so tempting
I don't know how it got so bad
Sometimes it's so crazy
That nothing can save me
But it's the only thing that I have

If you believe it's in my soul
I'd say all the words that I know
Just to see if it would show
That I'm trying to let you know
That I'm better off on my own

On my own

I tried to be perfect
It just wasn't worth it
Nothing could ever be so wrong
It's hard to believe me
It never gets easy
I guess I knew that all along

If you believe it's in my soul
I'd say all the words that I know
Just to see if it would show
That I'm trying to let you know
That I'm better off on my own
As Cold says in the song "Gone Away", it's my whole life in words. :|

Its not about SA, but these lines in Redundant by Green Day always get me
I cannot speak, I've lost my voice, I'm speechless and redundant.
