Music that moves you

Recommended Posts

Thought there was a topic about this, but I can't find it. :icon11:

Well, here's mine. 3 Doors Down has been a favorite for the reason that their music is positive, it helps me on my outlook on things. They have a new one out called "It's not my time". Here are the lyrics and the youtube video of it. You'll have to watch it a couple times to get the plot of it, but it's great.

"It's Not My Time"

Looking back of the beginning of this

And how life was

Just you and me loving all of our friends

Living life like an ocean

But now the current slowly pulling me down

It?s getting harder too breath

It won?t be to long and I will be going under

Can you save me from this?

Cause it?s not my time I?m not going

There?s a fear in me it?s not showing

This could be the end of me

And everything I know

Oh but I won?t go

I look ahead too all the plans that we made

And the dreams that we had

I?m in a world that try to take them away

Oh but I?m taking them back

Cause all of this time I? we been just too blind to understand

What should matter to me

My friends is laughing and it?s not what we have

It?s what we be live in

Cause it?s not my time I?m not going

There?s a fear in me but it?s not showing

This could be the end of me

And everything I know

But it?s not my time I?m not going

There?s a will in me and now I know that

This could be the end of me

And everything I know

Oh but I won?t go

I won?t go

There might be more than you believe

(There might be more than you believe)

There might be more than you can see

But it?s not my time I?m not going

There?s a fear in me it?s not showing

This could be the end of me

And everything I know

But it?s not my time I?m not going

There?s a will in me and now it?s gonna show

This could be the end of me

And everything I know

Oh

There might be more than you believe

(There might be more than you believe)

There might be more than you can see

But I won?t go

No I won?t go down

Yeah

I was moved enough by Five for Fighting's 2004 hit "100 Years" to have put it in my new story, Pieces of Destiny. While I'm by and large a middle-aged guy who loves 1960s and 1970s music, I try to keep an ear to the radio every so often in case something good comes along. That song struck me as one of the best of the last few years.

It helps to have a story where one of the characters is quite "musical" (ahem), which gives me the chance to sneak in a song every so often. I'm trying not to overdo it, and just do it for a few lines, but it helps.

Another song that almost reduced me to tears was Billy Gilman's 2001 Country hit "Oklahoma," which I thought was amazingly good. I'm not even a country fan (by far), but this one was extraordinarily good. I'm amazed it wasn't a bigger hit, but that shows you how weird the music industry is these days.
