On July 19, 2001, I was diagnosed suddenly with cancer. The only time in my life when music stopped playing was the few months’ time period following my cancer surgery and after all my treatments were complete — a time when I was supposed to be ‘picking up the pieces’ and getting on with my life — but I could barely even find the pieces. I had lost over 50 pounds, was still in a lot of pain and an absolute mess physically, mentally and emotionally. Everything took tremendous effort. Then one night God’s grace pointed me to something he knew I could relate to as a jump start. Amid some old cassette tapes in the basement, I found The Psychedelic Furs 1981 release TALK TALK TALK. The first song on side ‘B’ was brand new to me and provided a small spark I needed to slowly begin a long journey of recovery. I forced myself into a nightly exercise routine to get moving again and used an ongoing soundtrack of many, many songs and artists to help energize me and drown out the doubts, fear and anxiety going on continually inside me. Fifteen years later, and with much gratitude to the man upstairs for so many blessings, here’s the lead-off song from that soundtrack.

I want to hear what song has made an incredible difference in your life and why. Send an email: greatsongsneverdie@gmail.com; tweet @greatsongsND or post on Facebook group page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1534489830100513/ (Please request to join group first if not already a member).
