I hope this isn't considered stepping on the toes of the What Song Are You Listening To thread, but I wanted to start a music thread that encourages more discussion. Many of us, especially in our formative years, relate passionately to music. Specific songs are described as "defining generations", "capturing the spirit" of a time, and spurring change well beyond the music and art world. I'm sure we've all heard songs that made us feel as though they were written about or for us...hell, the song "Killing Me Softly" is about that very experience. This year we've lost artists who made people around the world feel that way. So, what songs or pieces of music really speak to you? Rules: 1. Only one song per post please (a couple if they're really related -- like covers or two songs about the same specific thing, for example). 2. Provide a youtube link if you can. 3. Tell why you chose the song -- this is a discussion thread, after all! 4. I am a strong believer in tangents. Read and listen to other people's posts and let the music take you where it takes you!
