    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.

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