150 Most Meaningful Songs
Can you think of the 150 songs that have the most meaning in to your life?

I don't mean just your favorite catchy tune here, either.

Perhaps it was the song played on your wedding, a song from that terrible boy band everyone loved as a child that you sung to with your best friend in grammar school, that song that got you through the ending of a serious relationship, something your mother hummed to you before you went to bed at night, or the song you wish would play at your funeral... Of course, a song that always seems to put you in a great mood or helps you unwind is good, too. But please keep this to songs that will stick with you for years, if not forever.

See how many you can come up with. Don't rush. You can always edit your post to add or remove songs. Ten very meaningful songs are better than 150 songs you got from scrolling through your iPod in a matter of seconds. This is suppose to take a long while to complete, as a lot of these songs will not be on your computer or iPod and will be sparked by memories. So please take your time and just remember to write down or text yourself the song when it comes up so you remember to add it to your post.

If I can get at least ten people to each complete the 150 challenge, there will be 1,500 songs listed!

Please be respectful towards the songs/bands chosen. Some of these may be from when the poster was a child, a painful memory, or a very special time.

A hall of mirrors opens up into a room full of me;
I could be anyone, we could be anyone;
There is a choice to make, I see now.
We turn over, we redefine this reflection.
There is a choice to make.

  1. Born This Way | Lady GaGa - Click To Listen
    I'm a big fan of inspirational songs and while it hasn't had a specific relation to an event in my life, this is one that just gives me a good feeling while listening to it.



  2. Cats in the Cradle | Harry Chapin - Click To Listen
    My father passed away when I was very young. I was told by family that this was one of his favorite songs. I listened to it and fell in love with it. Also has a relevant meaning in a way as it talks about when father and son will eventually be together again.


  3. It's My Life | Jon Bon Jovi - Click To Listen
    Those that know me know I have an entrepreneurial mindset and always dream big. This song keeps me reminded of why it's important to live that way instead of just settling for what's given to you in life and complaining all the time.


  4. Ride Wit Me | Nelly - Click To Listen
    Similar reasoning to the songs that keep me entrepreneurial minded. There's a specific line in this one that I can respect. (But now the same motherfu*kers asking me for dough, And I'm yelling: "I can't help ya"). Having friends who are successful already, I've seen this a lot, where the people who doubted you while you went through your trials to get to where you are and tried to make you feel bad, are the same ones who try and ride your coat-tails when you make it.


To be continued.

I think people don't like her because she's the 'cool' thing and it's 'cool' to not like what's 'cool'. I never base my interests on that kinda stuff, ever. Born This Way is one of the most inspirational songs out there today.

This is exactly why I mentioned in the first post to respect all the song/band choices =)

I can't imagine someone going "Wow, that song is TERRIBLE!" and someone chose it because it played at their grandparents funeral or something.
