I used to relate really strongly with a lot of songs as a teenager, but as I've gotten older, I don't have that intense kind of reaction to music anymore, so there are songs that speak to me in bits and pieces now but not so much ones that are like "YES! THis is me!"

Ones that have hit me that way a bit lately:
Amie, by Damien Rice


All the Rowboats, by Regina Spektor


And an old one that was one of the big ones for me when I was a teenager (I'm dating myself here Uh-oh) and still kind of rings true, Mr. Jones, by Counting Crows

Oh man Enail, I love that Counting Crows song too, and I always feel like a gigantic nerd for getting a little choked up when I hear it at a gas station or drugstore or something Laughing

I also mostly identified with songs when I was younger, and less so the older I get, but the ones that stick tend to be more about identifying with a feeling or worldview than lyrics which are like "oh! that describes me!"

This one from high school still rings pretty true to my internal discourse:



Clark's Catastrophe Anthem only has 4 words, but I somehow manage to identify a lot with it anyway (sorry for the Russian site, it's not on YouTube): "we are your ancestors"

And I identify pretty hard with a lot of Talking Heads lyrics, and the entire politely-bewildered-alien-dropped-into-late-stage-America ethos of True Stories, but especially:

I will fully admit that I heard New Order’s Elegia when MGSV came out during the trailers. What I find amazing about this tune is that... it evokes such feelings in me but it also resonates and reflects those same emotions. With just music, New Order is able to do that, I know there’s other musicians that can do the same, but usually it’s lyrically or some kind of classical music. It’s not so much that I can relate but it describes... such a particular state of mind.

To me, that’s what music does. I’m such a weenie sometimes I do tear up at some songs. “Purple Rain” by Prince, Bowie’s “Heroes” simply fucks me up, then there’s Joy Division.



That song, musically and lyrically hits me all at once. “Got the spirit, lose the feeling, let it out somehow.

Ohhh, New Order/Joy Division. I briefly contemplated putting Ceremony as one of the songs I identified with, but it's too easy to interpret as "struggling with constant suicidal ideation" rather than a more general bittersweetness Laughing

Suicidal ideation. That hits a lil too close to home (I’m sure so many of us have been there -hugs-), but I totally get the bittersweetness vibes from this song.

Goddamn; Right in the feels. Fuck, I love New Order (aka Ian Curtiss-less Joy Division). Those guys have such a way with music and evoking emotion so extremely well. “Bizarre Love Triangle” sounds like a love song, it’s great, and then “Blue Monday” lyrically and musically sounds so sexual.
