What band, artist or musician saved your life?

I went through some pretty rough times in high school (as many people have and still do) and I actually attempted suicide several times, with no success (obviously). But one day I turned on Much Music (fuse) and caught ''For You'' by Staind. It hit so hard that I bought ''Break the Cycle'' as soon as I had the money. After listening to it until I knew every word, I began looking for a different way to solve my problems. I felt like I let go of my self loathing and self hating past and found new reasons to live. I just want to know who else has had this kind of experience and would be willing to share it. :)

  • That is true..A music can save your life from the melody and most specially from the lyrics. It has the power to move a person's life. Because a good music was also created from the heart of an artist who's trying to convey with his/ or her soul energy as imparted. Most specially IF a certain music was being made to be organized by a group of musicians sending out altogether their heartful of spirits with their strong faith and love from the songs that they are conveying to so many others and into the world.

    Good for You that it worked that way too..! For me, it is "Enya" and the theme from the "Gladiator", and Loreena M. ..When I hear it, it's like a message of melody from the heavens.

    Then some livelier rhythms from the past also did a great job..: )
