I can get a bit blue sometimes and there's nothing like listening to songs you closely relate to. Not a song about breaking up with your last girlfriend, but a song that relates to your everyday struggle with SA... so something a little more specialized if you know what I mean...

Well a couple of mine include:

"Xanax" by Maria Taylor
and
"Built to Spill" by Built to Spill


Anybody else have any?

Dream Theater - Solitary Shell
Type O Negative - I Don't Wanna Be Me
Michael Jackson - Stranger In Moscow

None of these songs are SA related, btw. They just remind me of it for some reason.

Tear -red hot chili peppers

dosed-red hot chili peppers

amsterdam-coldplay

prayer for the dying- seal

I doubt the artists intended these to be about S.A. but these do it for me. The last one especially cheers me up to keep on going.

Crooked Fingers - Man Who Died of Nothing at All

You say that you're slipping away
As you turn from the hand that could save you
You fell like a drunk down a well
Like a dog into Hell you were sinking
And you took it all in as a joke
As if you didn't know you were broken
Hiding out in the rain you stood soaking

Breathing in the glass to your last lung
All blackened and cracking and blue
Creeping through the slums of your old world
Where nothing about you is new
They laughed and as they turned their backs

You slid into a crack no one saw
And stayed there for a very long time
Dying of nothing at all
Though you went to the doctor to cope
And he sold you the new antidote
And he told you that you had been broken

They say you gave yourself away for a moment
But no one would take you
You said, I'm alive, but you're dead
Cause nothing about you is new
Even though you had been diagnosed
And were given the new antidote
And were numb to the rain and the soaking
You have been and always will be broken

Elliott Smith -- Between the Bars, I happen to be listening to now. Also one of my favorite Elliott Smith songs.

"Drink up, baby, stay up all night
The things you could do, you won't but you might
The potential you'll be that you'll never see
The promises you'll only make
Drink up with me now and forget all about
The pressure of days, do what I say
And I'll make you okay and drive them away
The images stuck in your head
People you've been before that you don't want around anymore
That push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still
Drink up, baby, look at the stars
I'll kiss you again between the bars
Where I'm seeing you there with your hands in the air
Waiting to finally be caught
Drink up one more time and I'll make you mine
Keep you apart, deep in my heart
Separate from the rest, where I like you the best
And keep the things you forgot
The people you've been before that you don't want around anymore
That push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still"

But then anyone who has drunk alcohol can relate to this as well.
