Songs that Changed My Life
1. The Scorpions - Winds of Change
Honestly, this is the first song I can remember liking as a child, maybe it is that whistling part a the beginning, but always stuck in my head. Don't really care for any other Scorpions songs, but this one... dunno why, something about it. Just resonates with me.
2. Johnny Cash - Ring of Fire
This one, my dad is a huge Cash fan, and I remember repeatedly hearing this play through out the day, along with several other, any time he was home. Just one of those things that sticks in your head, at least for me it did. Course I don't care for country all that much, but Cash's music, to me, it isnt really about the singing, it is more about what he is singing about.
3. Mad at Gravity - Stay
When I first hear this one, even though it isnt available anywhere on any cd of theirs, not a single, nothing, the last thing they recorded before they broke up, I was in a deep ass depression, and it helped a good deal, not sure why, just it is a fantastic song, compared to the rest of their stuff.
4. Incubus - Drive
This song, along with Stellar, off the Make Yourself album, it is what really pushed me into listening to music, though it could have probably been something better, to me, at the time they were released, they were fantastic, course Drive still is rather good, but Stellar don't find all that appealing anymore.
5. Fear Factory - Timelessness
Probably the oddest song, Ive heard, there are relatively no lyrics, but this is the song that got me into heavy metal, granted it also help cheer me up when I got sad, guess I'm a little messed up in the head, cause everyone would yell at me, when I would listen to it, never could understand why. Actually... I still don't understand.
6. 30 Seconds to Mars - The Mission
Saw this song, in a anime music video years ago, when I was into anime, and quite frankly, the song blew me away, I quickly found the album it was from, and the entire self titled album, was awesome. Then finally got to see them live, and it was the best live show Ive ever seen. All their music just speaks volumes to me, even though their lead singer is an actor, but I find his music to be way better then his acting. Just made things in my life seem way easier, then they were at the time I first heard the song.
7. Blue Oyster Cult - Veteran of the Psychic Wars
Ah BOC, the first time I heard it, it was in the movie Heavy Metal, saw it when I was like 14, one of those times you just stay up way to late, cause you don't feel like sleeping in the summer. But just the beats of the song, just stick in my head, and if anyone mentions BOC, I always throw that out there, not sure why, cause everyone else thinks of Don't Fear the Reaper, but I always think of VotPW.
8. Led Zeppelin - The Battle of Evermore
Never really cared much for Zeppelin, until probably a few years ago, when I was working in a music store, and the guy I was working with put it on, and he played this song, and definitely helped break down the annoying factor of Zeppelin, at least that i had against them. Enjoyed many good nights of work blasting Zeppelin throughout the mall.
