The Top 10 Songs That Move Me (Videos)

Updated on February 29, 2012

Music To My Soul

I love music. No, I REALLY love music. If it had a face, I'd kiss it. If it had hands, I hold them. If it had a stomach, I'd cook the most delicious meal for it on Valentine's Day.

Music has given me so much. A song that makes me so happy that I think I might explode from joy, and tears because the words mean so much and almost seem like they've been written just for me.

I have a list of songs I want played at my funeral. It's not a complete list, because I don't plan on going anywhere any time soon. I think this is a good idea because I've been to funerals where they play that tear-jerking, gut-wrenching organ music. If you're going to cry because I'm gone, I'd much rather you do it to songs that I loved while I was alive.

Here are 10 songs, in no particular order, that I truly love. Some make me happy. Some make me sad. All are inspiring and give hope. I hope you find some new favorites. Music is meant to be shared.

Rufus Wainwright ~ Across The Universe

John Fogerty ~ Centerfield

Charlotte Church ~ Pie Jesu

Dave Grusin ~ On Golden Pond

Dropkick Murphys ~ Going Out In Style (some profanity)

Green Day ~ 21 Guns (Cast Version)

Vivaldi ~ Spring (The Four Seasons) *I love all four!*

Foo Fighters ~ Times Like These

Joey Ramone ~ What A Wonderful World

The Cure ~ Pictures Of You

      What a mix! Loved the videos too. You are most Eclectic no doubt. I'm with you in loving music - all kinds, it comforts us, makes us cry, helps us remember, and the list goes on. Nice hub. Voted up.

      I enjoyed these videos. I'm much delighted to find John Lennon. I very much love this song.

      Gypsy, I have favorites from many different years. I even like Benny Goodman! I'm not a fan of new country, but I do like old country like, Johnny Cash, George Jones, & Hank Williams Sr.

      P.S. the first song, "Across The Universe" is actually a Beatles song written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney.

      Hadn't heard of any of them except for Imagine. But great music anyway. I'm a child of the 70s and 80s and love all kinds of music but especially oldies and country.
