Music helped get me through the tough times of my cancer treatments. I listen to everything from Pitbull to Perry Como. (This is what iTunes and Google was invented for––at least for me). So instead of a post about the good and bad times of chemo, needles and radiation, let me spit out a partial list that kept me in a good place. And helped me get out of the bad places.
Numb--Jay-Z & Linkin Park
Cause We Ended As Lovers––Jeff Beck
I Would Die 4 U––Prince
I Wanna Be Sedated––The Ramones
Mama Loves Mambo--Perry Como
It's My Life––No Doubt
Give Up The Funk (Tear The Roof Of The Mutha Sucka)––Parliament
This Is Not A Love Song––Public Image Ltd
Going To California––Led Zeppelin
I Walk Alone––Los Lobos
Until It Sleeps––Metallica
Working For The Clampdown––The Clash
(The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes--Elvis Costello
A Little Less Conversation––Elvis Presley
I Like The Way You Move––Outkast
Pet You And Hold You––Rockpile
No One To Depend On––Santana
Would it make a good "mix tape"? Who knows. But I do believe that music did at least one thing for me.
It gave me life.
