For me, one song that is very dear to me is 'Held' by Amy Grant. I listened to it over and over after we lost our son in 08 when I was 33 weeks pregnant. A friend gave me the cd and the song was so in line with what we were going through, I couldn't help but listen to it. Up until this year, I couldn't hear it on the radio without bawling. I'm finally able to.
It's funny how for me at least, music is sole memories for me. I can hear a song and be taken back to the exact time of my life that i used to listen to it, the people I hung out with, and they person I was. It's powerful for me.
A happy song for me when I hear it is acutally a genera of music from the 80's. Particularly a lot of 80's hair bands as they take me back to being a little girl, close to my mom and just some good times in my life with her.
