    While pondering opening music for JohnEdwardFriends.org and sounds for Desktop themes, (AND spending time with Scrambled last week talking about our most favorite and meaningful music in our lives!)
    It prompts me to ask you-

    Please tell us a song that reminds you of life after death, or after death communication:

    My favorite: “Somewhere” from West Side Story.
    written by Stephen Sondheim

    There’s a place for us,
    Somewhere a place for us.
    Peace and quiet and open air
    Wait for us
    Somewhere.
    There’s a time for us,
    Some day a time for us.
    Time together and time to spare,
    Time to look, time to care
    Some day!
    Somewhere
    We’ll find a new way of living,
    Will find there’s a way of forgiving
    Somewhere…
    There’s a place for us,
    A time and place for us.
    Hold my hand and we’re halfway there
    Hold my hand and I’ll take you there
    Somehow…
    Some day…
    Somewhere…

    Pam, this is my happy ADC song:

    ARTIST: Peter Gabriel
    TITLE: Solsbury Hill

    Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
    I could see the city light
    Wind was blowing, time stood still
    Eagle flew out of the night
    He was something to observe
    Came in close I heard a voice
    Standing stretching every nerve
    I had to listen had no choice
    I did not believe the information
    Just had to trust imagination
    My heart going boom-boom-boom
    Son, he said, grab your things
    I’ve come to take you home
    Eh, don’t quit

    To keep in silence I resigned
    My friends would think I was a nut
    Turning water into wine
    Open doors would soon be shut
    So I went from day to day
    Oh, my life was in a rut
    ‘Til I thought of what I’d say
    Which connection I should cut
    I was feeling part of the scenery
    I’d walk right out of the machinery
    My heart going boom-boom-boom
    Hey, he said, grab your things
    I’ve come to take you home
    Eh, back home

    When illusion spin her net
    I’m never where I want to be
    And liberty, she’d pirhouette
    When I think that I am free
    Watched by empty silhouettes
    Who close their eyes but still can see
    No one taught them etiquette
    I will show another me
    Today I don’t need a replacement
    I’ll tell them what the smile on my face meant
    My heart going boom-boom-boom
    Hey, I said, you can keep my things
    They’ve come to take me home

    This song is about ACTUAL after death communication and the survival of the spirit. The author is Ted Nugent, about his dear friend and companion Fred Bear.

    Enjoy! I know i do.

    “…the buck was mine forever more.” – Ted Nugent

    Hmmm…until you get to the Other Side, where that buck may be waiting with a few choice words.

    Sorry, I just don’t understand how a man can speak so movingly about the loss of his mother and best friend, then pick up his toys and go out for a casual “kill”.

    I don’t understand it and I guess I never will.

    I know it, me either. The point of the song ( to me ) was more that his friend’s spirit lives on and guides him.

    If you read Ted’s description of how he came to write the song, you get the feeling that the other side really wrote it. He says he played it the first time, like he had played it a million times before. It was like the lyrics wrote themselves.

    Interesting…

    I know, and it is. Which makes it all the more puzzling to me. To have a sense of the Afterlife, and receive such a validation, (possibly not his first) and yet still imbrace blood sports. I can’t fathom it. Talk about “dichotomy”!

    I can understand the reasons for almost any type of killing (not to say I condone all reasons, just that I can understand them.) All except sport killing. To kill something for no other reason except the enjoyment of killing something is alien to me. And just plain creepy.

    P.S. – speaking of dichotomy; seems like we have that same problem, when it comes to getting off topic at this new board. “Off we go, into the wild, blue yonder…”! :D

    I just wanted to say that I agree with you 100%!

    And to get the thread back on track :), my ADC song is from Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Carousel”:

    You’ll Never Walk Alone

    When you walk through a storm
    Hold your head up high
    And don’t be afraid of the dark.
    At the end of the storm
    Is a golden sky
    And the sweet silver song of the lark.
    Walk on through the wind,
    Walk on through the rain,
    Though your dreams be tossed and blown.
    Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart,
    And you’ll never walk alone.
    You’ll never walk alone.

    well my sister has already posted one of my fav’s ..IN MY LIFE BY THE BEATELES..

    MY OTHER FAV is..by SAVAGE GARDEN…YOU CAN STILL BE FREE.

    Cool breeze and autumn leaves
    slow motion day light
    a loan pair of watchful eyes
    overseas the living
    feel the presence all around
    a tourtured soul
    a wound unhealing
    no regrets or promises
    the past is gone, but u can still be free,
    if time will set u free.

    time now to spread your wings
    to take to flight
    the life endeavor
    aim for the burning sun
    youre trapped inside

    keep moving way up high
    you see the light
    it shines forever
    sail through the crimson skies
    the purest light
    the light that sets you free
    if time will set u free.

    written by DARREN HAYES, i poet of the millenium.

    i think this song says it all.

    tracy

    i was sat talking to my sister today about songs that affect us in some way, or make us think about loved ones that have passed on!

    this song came to mind after talking about this post. its a song called “A HEARTBEAT AWAY”, by MARK McGANN.

    i know you are in heaven,
    i know you’re only a heartbeat away,
    i know that you can here me,
    many things i have wanted to say,
    how i understand you,
    more and more each day
    your words are spoken through me
    in your way
    and although you cannot be with me
    you’re never far away
    you are in the air i breathe today.

    i know you are in heaven
    i feel that you are watching me now
    i wonder what your thinking, i wonder if i still furrow your brow,
    and though the words would fail you
    the times you tried to say
    just how much i meant to you those days
    i will not forget the kindness
    the debt i can’t repay
    i know you would have wanted it that way
    .
    i know you are in heaven,
    i know i must keep moving along
    the path to greater meaning
    till i find where i truley belong,
    but there’s one persistent question
    that keeps me coming back to you
    was there really nothing i could do,
    while i try to find the answer
    in every phase that i pass through
    you know it’s strange
    but i grow more and more like you,

    Great song, Dawn! Perfect. I especially like the line:

    “I wonder what your thinking, I wonder if i still furrow your brow…”

    I had to search for Mark McGann, since his music isn’t heard over here. Interesting man, (and cute!)

    (Sigh) Another great talent who hasn’t “crossed over” to the States. Gotta find me a good U.K. CD/video site.

    The song from the movie “Harry and The Hendersons”
    I have found it to be a comfort when I’m feeling
    lonely and missing my loved ones. The words remind
    that they are watching over me.

    Love Lives On
    By: Joe Cocker

    You touched my life
    You turned my heart around
    Seems when I found you
    It was me I really found
    You opened my eyes and
    Now my soul can see
    A moment maybe over
    But you’re still here with me

    Love lives on.
    Beyond good-bye
    The truth of us will never die
    Our spirits will shine
    Long after we’re gone
    And so, our love lives on

    There was so much
    I didn’t understand and
    Then you brought me here
    Far from where we all began
    The change you made
    In my life will never end
    I looked across the distance
    I know I have a Friend

    Love lives on.
    Beyond good-bye
    The truth of us will never die
    Our spirits will shine
    Long after we’re gone
    And so, our love lives on

    I was travlin in the dark
    Never sure what to do
    I didn’t know that I was lost
    Till I found myself in you

    Love lives on.
    Beyond good-bye
    The truth of us will never die
    Our spirits will shine
    Long after we’re gone
    And so, our love lives on
