There are several songs that empower me but, any song that speaks of true love and growth together works for me. kindred the family soul's far away and contentment. don't u ever give by sounds of blackness! i also get good vibes from john coltrane and duke ellington.

it is all about the love for me!

My most empowering song would have to be is 'You don't Own me.' With Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton. From the Movie "First Wives Club" I would have to say it's the best song ever.

For me it also depends on my mood...but i find my favorite music is usually instrumental...it's like the notes speak to me..if they are haunting or uplifting...i can't really explain...words don't mean as much to me!
My collection is pretty eclectic to ,Pink Floyd , Depeche Mode, Enya, Deed Forest etc.


Do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest.

That makes a lot of sense Gabrielle! Classical music touches me deeply and for me it's all about how each instrument is interpreting and adding to the piece.

I grew up listening to classical music and played the viola until about two years ago. I miss it dearly, especially because of how playing gave me the freedom to express whatever emotions I was going through personally or either invoked by the song. So I totally understand about how notes in music can have a great affect on one's mood!

Thanks for bringing that element to our song list!

I'm going to get a little religious here: I love old hymns and gospel songs such as Just a Closer Walk With Thee" and "Great is Thy Faithfulness" which contains the line "All I have needed Thy hand has provided."
Otherwise, I love "Climb Evry Mountain" from "Sound of Music"
And when I get the crazies, I really do turn to "Supercalifragilisticexpealidocious" trust me. it works! <img src="/images/graemlins/rolling.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/rolling.gif" alt="" />

To continue the religious songs--I love "O Happy Day!" and have since I was a little girl (back in the dark ages). I have the version from Sister Act 2 on my Ipod.

Hi Leah:

Oh, there are so many songs that are uplifting, across the musical spectrum. I'd have to say that "Wind Beneath My Wings" is one of my favorites.

I favor folksongs and particularly those that create imagery in my brain. Let me explain. I like songs that describe a scene. One such song was written by Bill Staines. It is called, "Redbird's Wing", and the lyrics describe flying over the Alaskan wilderness and seeing the "great granite ledges far below", the "mama moose and grizzly bear", etc. I love the deeper meaning of the song also.

Based on the lyrics, I created a pictorial art quilt called, "On Windy Whispers" (part of the lyrics). With the permission of the composer, I created a panel with all the words to the song and appliqu�d it to the back of the quilt. I'd have to check, but I think that there may be a photo of the quilt in my online gallery on my website. If not, it is pictured in my new book, Straight Talk about Quilt Care.

I often listen to music when I'm working in my quilt studio, and I always look forward to doing that.

If you all remember the sydney olympics opening ceromony she sang it there...Very uplifting indeed.
