Top 15 Relationship Songs – Better as a Memory

Music is a powerful form of expression, especially in the emotional system of the brain. Here is a collection of 15 relationship songs that have brought light to trials, tribulations, and relationships  people are experiencing.

Ever since I can remember, I often find myself drifting away to the sound of music.  I was on an airplane yesterday flying back to Austin, TX from Orlando.  On the plane, I was having difficulty sleeping, which is unusual, because I find myself almost always sleeping on airplanes when I travel.  As I was sitting there staring at the seat in from of me, I started a movie on my Kindle.  I had difficulty paying attention to that, as my mind was wondering, so I tried to read a book.  I read two paragraphs, and couldn’t remember one word that I read.  After not being able to focus on either of those things, I turned on a playlist with a collection of music from U2 to Eminem, and found myself relaxed and nodding off.  This was the first time I have flown in almost 10 years, and one of the things that was different about this ride, is that I wasn’t drinking.  I have been traveling since I was a little kid, and do not experience anxiety with the flight itself, but do experience anxiety with the masses of people around me.  One of my main concerns this trip was making sure there was enough room in the overhead compartment for my bags.  As silly as that may sound to some people, it was a real worry of mine.  I have been on float planes, small propeller planes, and some of the largest planes you can imagine, that are domestic to the US, and the actual flight does not bother me, but making sure I get on the plane, and have enough room for my stuff, does bother me. 

The sound of the music I played helped me relax and better connect with the relationship I was having with myself, and others at that time.

Sit back and list to the sounds of this playlist, and connect with the relationship you have with yourself first, and the relationship you have with others second.

The Road Not Taken – Poem of Inspiration 

The Road Not Taken – Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both, And be one traveler, long I stood, And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear, Though as for that the passing there, Had worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back. 

I shall be telling this with a sigh, Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference


It Blows in, Without a Sound – Addiction, Drepression, and Recovery

Martin Zellar hit it out of the park with this song about depression. The lyrics are insanely true, and this mental health disorder, is explained well through this song. Take it easy, and Enjoy the Ride Life Gives You Every Day! 

Martin Zellar – Low Road

It blows in without a sound
Like paper in a puddle you break down
Then it’s gone, and emptiness sets in
You’d give anything if you could cry again

Yeah, I know the doctors say
That they have these pills to take your blues away
Still it’s hard, I can’t pretend
That it wouldn’t be like killing off a friend

Yeah, it’s strange, but can’t you see
It’s there, it’s always been a part of me
And I’m scared to let go
Of a big part of the only me I know

Build it up and tear it down
In this kingdom of dark dreams I wear the crown
Every life, every face that I see
Has a sad story that overpowers me

In our hearts we must trust
Or our dreams will turn to stone or start to rust
Please hold on, and don’t let go
I’ll do my best to never let it show

It blows in without a sound
Like paper in a puddle you break down
