  One song, or rather tune, brings back all my bad memories. That's Taps.

One from my Armydays always makes my mouth water--Mess call/


Soupy, soupy, soupy,
without any beans
Coffee, coffee, coffee,
without any cream.

I can hear it now---wonder wants in the fridge?

Just when you thought it was over.

I had this song on my mind so I went looking for it on youtube. I clicked on the first one that popped up. While the song itself isn't all that sad, when I saw the video, and my mind twisted around what I was seeing and made up a story about it, it tugged at the heart strings.

So this guy makes a montage of the one he loves. Puts the message he wants to get across in song form. Posts it on youtube, and sits and watches it over and over. If you watch this you will understand. Think of a pimply faced teen and notice who the montage is about and listen to the words.



Then he could be a stalker...  shocked

Artie Shaw's "Gloomy Sunday".   Lost both my parents in 2005.  I lost my father in Jan and then my mother in Oct.  My mother passed from brain cancer and was in and out of lucidness.  A few days after we buried her this song kept popping up for no apparent reason, it kinda let me know everthing was alright.

I thought there would be a better turn out here. Seems no one wants to play. Make me feel like Janis Ian at seventeen

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CziYn0n6zkI&feature=related


I am ready to play. I don't know why this wonderful post you have started slipped through my fingertips, as I am, believe it or not Cindi! sentimental.

These songs at this moment come to mind, I am sure I can think of more, but this is a start:

You started it Jerry so here is my tearjerker.

My best friend at the time, I was 13, died of an aneurysm. We tried to get together after 8th grade graduation and kept missing each other, playing phone tag. He was a good friend, we used to get into trouble together, fish, and he had a dirt bike, which was cool. His younger brother found him in their swimming pool.

This song I remember hearing it for the first time right after he passed. I still get choked up now when I hear it. The family was very loving and close nit, and were crushed as we all were.


This song gives me goosebumps everytime I hear it, and I think of my father.


This is a song that did something to me when I was a kid and it still fills me.


I couldn't find my absolute favorite version of this one which was an mtv, unplugged version, but this will do, even though the quality of the video is not 100%

Actually she does a little of both, heehee. If she's having a bad day she may call me and say, sing it, and so I do. It seems to help, she says.

How about Red Sovine's "I'm Only Sixteen." 
Red put music to the words about a 16 year old killed in a car accident to music.  Most people gave credit to Dear Abbie for the work but it was actually written by a Police Officer in Colfax, Washington.  He wrote it after investigatin 3 fatal traffic accidents one prom night.  Colfax is a small town in the Palouse area of SE Washington.  The writers name is Scott Hendrickson, and a few years after than he became my Police Chief in Burlington, Washington.  It was while Burlington Police Chief that he had to supply the copy right info in order to get credit and royalties for the lyrics to the song.

Little Jo is a good one too. The Mini Pearl addition to Giddy Up go goes back to the point of view of a waitress from a truckstop. Its been so long, I dont recall if the father and son reunite in the first song or not. If

ok, I have read this enough and its time to post mine.
Oh a few years back I guess now I lost my mother. (March of 94) Cancer. Came out of the blue and she was gone in a flash. One day at the family dinner with my new bride my mother said she felt like her leg was asleep and she could not get it to wake up. That was sunday afternoon. Monday her arm started to feel numb and so off to the doc she went. The rest is history. We found out shortly after that my new bride was pregnant with a baby girl.  We were supposed to have a hard time having kids, but we were taking birth control anyway, so we thought that was kind of a miracle to begin with. So in the same year that I lost my mother we had our beautiful first, unexpected and unplanned but beautiful.  My daughter Madison Kathleen. My mother was Kathleen. Well one year after my mother passed away, a wonderful neighbor knocked on our door and handed me an enveloped. It was a letter that my mother had written about two months before she died. She wanted us kids to have them a year after she died. I am the oldest of 4. My mother talked of the beautiful baby girl that was about to bless my wife and I's life. She talked of her spunk and her spirit. That even though this daughter was our baby she was an old soul. We of course were floored with this. As we did not know at the time my mother died that we were having a girl. We thought of course this was a miracle, even more so when we realized that the letter had been written in Jan. We did not find out we were pregnant until late Feb. Definately a miracle in our minds.
In that year, one angel closed her eyes for the last time, and one angel opened her eyes for first time.
A few years later I heard this song for the first time. It is so hard for me to raise my family without my mother being involved, but when I see her again, I know that she will tell my family and I that she was with us all along.
Love you mom,
She was 45 when she died. I turn 40 next year.

God bless you all.

Frantz,

That is one of the most beautiful stories I have ever read. You mother was an amazing women, and passed on so young. You were given a blessing in your life.

I admit I have never heard this song before, but it was so sweet. When my mother passed away, it took me a full 5 years to even think about her without crying. I know what it is like to lose someone like that.

Take care and thank you for sharing this wonderful experience.

Annette

Frantz, a beautiful story that struck me deep to the bottom of my very soul.  I had those goosebumps that slowly covered my entire body, and made me feel icey cold.  Your Mother was a light in your life, I know that you miss her terribly and that she cannot see her Grandchildren and be part of their lives, but I know that she is looking on, from somewhere, I believe in something after death, not just sure what.  I lost my Mother when I was 28, she was only 49.  Like so many, we feel your pain, know your pain.  Beautiful and wonderful wishes for this day, Cindi
