I hope you enjoy these - Unwell by Matchbox 20, and Kryptonite by 3 Doors Down.
I include this one, Carefree Highway by Gordon Lightfoot, mostly because of the haunting phrase "Picking up the pieces of my sweet shattered dream." This phrase often went through my mind when I thought of how my older daughter's life got derailed with illness. As she became well again she had to essentially start over.
You might find this one strange for me to include in this list, but let me explain. Both my kids loved Rainbow Brite songs. They played them so many times my husband nearly pulled his hair out. Who knew I would later find myself singing this one in the shower, in the car, and elsewhere, with tears streaming down my face trying to just make the pain subside. . . trying desperately to feel happier. There's a saying "If momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy." I knew my family needed for me to be happy.
Just some random pieces I like...
