    What are some songs about mental illness?

    I am considering writing a hub about songs that deal with mental illness. I already have a few in mind, but I was just wondering if anyone else was aware of any.

    Angie Baby by Helen Reddy springs to mind. I hadn't heard it in years, but a quick check on youtube brought it up no problem. Not sure if it's the kind of thing you're looking for.

      Not familiar with it, so I will definitely check it out. Thanks for the suggestion.

    x amount of words by Blue October.  It's one of my favorite songs.

      I am vaguely familiar with the song. I haven't heard it in a while, and it totally escaped my mind for my list. Thanks for reminding me, I will definitely take it into consideration.

      Some great recommendations! I will definitely take them into consideration (even though Pink Floyd has a number to choose from, so it would be hard to narrow down).

      Agree on the Pink Floyd.  This one has special meaning to me, though.  That's why I mentioned it.  smile

    "Fire and Rain' by James Taylor is about depression and drug rehab.

      I appreciate the suggestion. I definitely know the song, but I never made the connection to mental illness.

    not exactly about mental illness but the lyrics may lead you to depression .love the lyrics though.Love tracy chapman songs. Lyrics are like grassroots poems.

    I like "Sail" by Awolnation, which I now have stuck in my head. *Singing* Blame it on my ADD, baby...
