    Arrow Your favorite song and what it means to you

    This song is very E4. I feel that it describes me to a T. It also reminds me of the Mentor Archetype in that the songwriter has been where I am and has transcended others judgements and also their own.

    I think Eminem's older songs were just awesome. This one's about obsession and how it can quickly take a turn for the worse. Not that it's ever happened to me.

    It's so hard to pick a favorite, but here's one that's way way way at the top:



    You push and push a people, what are they to do?
    Soon this corporate run government will be through
    See, it doesn't represent the people anymore
    Big business are the pimps and governments' their whores
    We don't need more time to talk over a solution
    We know what we need, we need a fucking revolution

    We don't need your war machine, or your filthy blood stained dollars
    Weve got one thing you aint got
    Weve got, we've got, we've got... got the numbers!

    To you the masses are not even human beings
    Were dogs that will be grateful for any scraps you leave
    But even dogs will only put up with so much abuse
    Keep stealing from us like you are we're gonna let loose
    We don't need more time to talk over a solution
    We know what we need, we need a fucking revolution

    We don't need your war machine, or your filthy blood stained dollars
    Weve got one thing you don't have
    Weve got, we've got, we've got... got the numbers!
    Weve got...we have... we've got the numbers!

    We don't need more time to talk over a solution
    We know what we need, we need a fucking revolution!!!

    We don't need your war machine, or your filthy blood stained dollars
    Weve got one thing you aint got
    Weve got, we've got, we've got... got the numbers!


    The song itself sounds absolutely massive, and the lyrics! Aside from me being with the ideals and all, the whole idea of laws, and the words they consist of, just being vibrations in air and ink on paper, and money just being more paper with ink on it, in the face of a large, physical mass of flesh-and-blood people with their hearts, minds, and wills in the right place... very inspiring and freeing and totally my thing...

    Yes to both. I don't want to go into the details though.

    Wow thanks

    I used to write music and lyrics a lot more, but I found it tough to get them all to fit right into a cohesive whole... I want to start writing again, I'll probably do it while on my bike rides once I get the waterproof bags (I can keep books in there too and read in the woods)...

    I posted a different track as my "favorite of all time" in my older music thread, but I'm gonna go with Bump of Chicken's "K"



    The story is that there's a black cat. He's feared by all the children around him, and he gets rocks thrown at him. As such, the cat becomes a recluse and avoids all human contact, yet still longs for it. An artist comes along and tries to befriend the cat, saying "hey there little guy, we two are a lot alike you know." Terrified, the cat initially runs away from him, although he eventually succumbs to the artist's offer of friendship and decides lives with him.

    Winter, two years later. The artist and the cat have become best friends, and they now live in a cabin in the middle of the woods. He's given the cat a name, "Holy Night," in reference to the cold, Christmas-like night. For the entire two years the artist has drawn nothing but the cat, and since nobody wants a picture of a bad luck cat none of his drawings sold. In his poverty he's fallen deathly ill without any way of affording medication. He writes his final letter to his lover back in the town, and the cat runs off into the snow to deliver the message of the man who gave him his first taste of compassion and kindness.

    Running through the woods, the cat runs across a bunch of kids who once again throw rocks at the "spawn of Satan." Bloody and fatigued, he refuses to give up. He sees delivering this message as his purpose on Earth, the reason for his existence, so he pushes on at hard as he can. Covered in scars, he runs back to the artist's hometown and arrives at his lover's house, where he falls dead at her feet. The woman buries the cat in her yard, adding the letter K to his name for "Holy Knight."



    This song strikes me deeply at my E6 core. I find that I have a self-conception as a holy knight of sorts, like a man who exists for some divine purpose although he doesn't know what that purpose is yet. He's waiting for a cause to fight for, and once he finds it he will devote the entirety of his being to fulfilling that purpose.

    Favourite songs change constantly.... but:



    At noon the wind comes through
    Across the bay on a clear day
    And I can watch the boats come in and set their anchors
    And my folks are away at the store
    So I don't have to listen
    To anyone
    Say anything

    And I swim out as far as I can
    And float on my back
    Just waiting for nothing

    I hope they never come back to this house
    It's a lot more fun alone
    I can do anything I want
    And so I'm swimming
    More like floating
    And I'll just stay out here
    Until the night comes crashing down

    And I swim
    Out as far as I can
    And float on my back
    Just waiting for nothing
    They always come home
    At the wrong time
    Like when I'm alright
    And don't need no one at all

    The "exists for some divine purpose" is E6 for sure. God, I wish my cat would do something nice for me instead of licking his balls all day long, lol.

    I don't think I have a favorite, so I'll just post a meaningful one I like.

    Really? Sounds more like 3/4 axis to me: being better by being special and visa versa.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    It doesn't sound like he's asking to be special to me, or to be better. He's focusing on fullfilling a meaningful role, not on being the one and only in that role who will always do it perfectly. The point is having the role and striving to fill it, not what the role will do to the metaphorical knight's qualities.
    Reason is a whore.

    This song and I have a number of things in common, for instance we're both awesome.

    That's not the driving purpose behind it though. The premise isn't to be better or special for the sake of feeling better about my own identity. Rather it's about being assured that there is something out there so worth defending that I must do whatever it takes to ensure the thing's validity. So the attachment isn't towards an externally-based identity as much as it is an externally-based conviction.

    I have "current fixations" instead of favourites. These come about because the sound of a song tickles something, and I listen to them repeatedly for a while. Then they either get forgotten, kept somewhere in the bookmarks or, rarely, graduate to the next group.

    Then I have "affecting songs" which stay in the group for however long. These tickle emotional bones more than a year after discovery, they leave me feeling fuller. I try not to play those too often, keeps them fresh.

    Anyone else usually not listen/pay attention to lyrics?

    A current affecting song:



    Life is beautiful (x3)

    Alone in my room, a normal day
    I learn in the newspapers that I'm in the axis of evil
    I read between the lines and I understand they want to kill me
    I lock things up so I can be a little calmer

    Outside, it's war, and I believe it's coming towards me
    Despite the demonstrators who'll live, who'll see it
    I put some sandbags in my living room
    Some bastards want to shoot me
    Like in football, the goalee wants to shoot the ball

    On the TV I hear that I'm the worst of the guys
    Long life to non-violents -- the propaganda is flawless
    I flip: some special B52 troops
    I regret what I did, I believe I could've done better

    But mistakes are human, I swear I've made mistakes
    Taking a position is just asking for a rain(1) of terror
    In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and the Imam and the Rabi
    Let this never be again.

    REFRAIN:- (x2)
    Like a bird without wings
    I fly towards heaven
    But I know that life is beautiful

    Me, I'm a missile
    I can't be blamed
    They guide me via satellite
    To do a flawless job
    All the technologies are put at my service
    In the goal of hunting evil
    And so that I act for a world of peace

    I'm in a carrier plane and I do what they ask me to
    Tonight I need to hit a guy who's all alone in his room
    I'm a bird without a wing: a suppository of fire
    500 km to go, and then it's Hell for him

    There it is, I've left, and I fly towards his home
    And I preserve the country while committing homicides
    I pierce the clouds towards the abscess and the ordered
    My objective memorised, I know the coordinates

    I'm made of fire, he's made of flesh. I arrive at the improvised protest
    I fly over the demonstrations of these millions of pacifists
    In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and the Imam and the Rabi
    Let this never be again.

    (REFRAIN)

    And through the chain of information I learn that a missile is coming
    It invites itself to my home, although I don't welcome it
    It bombards my city, my quarter, my building
    "Tonight you're going to die; such is my resentment."

    Calmly I tidy up my room and then I see the photos
    Of myself, of my ex, of vacations in Colorado
    Of walks in the mountains with our backpacks
    There I had conversations with all these youths

    I see my father and then my mother on black-and-white plates
    I, who found them difficult -- I did the same to my children
    They sleep peacefully... they must have been counting sheep
    Or maybe having dreams, when there was an explosion

    They killed my family without even knowing them
    Me, my wife and my kids seem to be added to the casualties
    The missiles kill -- in the civilisation, kill --
    docile babies; the world is hostile.

    I didn't do anything, the babies didn't do anything, and they wouldn't have done anything.
    They talk about benefits but all I see are misdeeds
    ... that is, to burst the abscess.
    If only they weren't around! It's all thanks to your excess.

    I call upon the synagogues, the mosques and the temples
    The Church, the chapels, military men and women
    In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and the Imam and the Rabi
    Let this never be again.

    I fly towards heaven, but I know life is beautiful. (x2)

    In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and the Imam and the Rabbi,
    Let this never be again.

    same, it's analogous to people and archetypal value. per your falsetto...


    the guitar solo of this song needs to be playing when america collapses:

    I can't isolate a song that expresses my ever-loving-essence. moods are eternal.

    I don't really know what it it is that makes me love this song so much, but even though I change what type of music I listen to as often as I change my clothes, this song has remained as my number one favorite. Maybe it's the simplicity of the melody and Cohens voice, maybe it's that the lyrics align with an idea of some perceived self or something.

    Since people drop Etypes like napalm in nam, I've tested E7, even though I don't subscribe to the theory...

    lol, funny you say that. I just switched back to a 5w4. I guess it's harder to realize your Etype then your sociotype because of the directional theory and just the complexities of human life as a whole.

    Heavyweight has always seemed like a unique song to me. I've never heard anything like it, it's like a truly different kind of noise.

    This would be my theme music if I were a pirate


    This, when I'm taking over ships and having swashbuckling battles


    This, when my crew and I are pulling into a cove and plundering it


    This, when three sheets are to the wind


    This would be my theme music if I were a buddhist


    This would be my theme music if I lived in a snowy cottage


    Or if I was having a love affair in a snowy cottage


    This would be my theme music if I was having a love affair on a moonlit river


    This would be my theme music if I rode on a pterodactyl to work every day


    This would be my theme music if I was a wanderer


    This would be my theme music once I trained hard enough


    This would be my theme music if I were riding my horse in the wind


    This would be my theme music if I was tanning on a tropical island


    This would be my theme music if I explored Jupiter of 60359 AC (which would be impossible because of the volitodes)


    This would be my theme music if I was an elf and lived in a forest village


    This would be my theme music if I was an elf and lived in a EPIC FOREST KINGDOM


    These would be my theme musics if I went on an EPIC ADVENTURE (which is what it already is)




    This would be my theme music if I were a merman or a fish


    This would be my theme music if I were madly in love


    This would be my theme music if I could get some sleep once in a while


    This would be my theme music if I were a Jew


    This would be my theme music if I went on a nature hike


    This would be my theme music if I were all mystical and sentimental (omg I am, weird)


    OMG I AM ALL OF THESE THINGS

    More to come, kids.

    This one of my favorite songs, it reminds me that even though life has sometimes put me through hell I can still try to build something constructive.

    warning: mild nudity




    I want to fly into your sun
    Need faith to make me numb
    Live like a teenage christ
    Im a saint, got a date with suicide

    Oh Mary, Mary
    To be this young is oh so scary
    Mary, Mary
    To be this young im oh so scared
    I wanna live, I wanna love
    But its a long hard road, out of hell
    I wanna live, I wanna love
    But its a long hard road, out of hell

    You never said forever, could ever hurt like this
    You never said forever, could ever hurt like this

    Spin my way out of hell, theres nothing left this soul to sell

    Live fast and die fast too
    How many times to do this for you?
    How many times to do this for you?

    Mary, Mary
    To be this young im oh so scared
    I wanna live, I wanna love
    But its a long hard road, out of hell
    I wanna live, I wanna love
    But its a long hard road, out of hell

    You never said forever, could ever hurt like this
    You never said forever, could ever hurt like this

    I wanna live, I wanna love
    But its a long hard road, out of hell

    Long hard road, out of hell

    I wanna live, I wanna love
    But its a long hard road, out of hell

    Sell my soul for anything, anything but you
    Sell my soul for anything, anything but you

    Love this one from Blur, coffee & t.v's another favourite.


    Where's the love song to set us free
    Too many people down
    Everything turning the wrong way round
    And I don't know what life would be
    If we stop dreaming now
    Lord knows we'd never clear the clouds.

    And you've been so busy lately that you haven't found the time
    To open up your mind
    And watch the world spinning gently out of time.

    Feel the sunshine on your face
    It's in a computer now
    Gone to the future way out in space.

    And you've been so busy lately that you haven't found the time
    To open up your mind
    And watch the world spinning gently out of time.

    And you've been so busy lately that you haven't found the time
    To open up your mind
    And watch the world spinning gently out of time.

    Tell me I'm not dreaming
    But are we out of time
    We're out of time
    Out of time

    I dunno what my favorite song is. But people are awfully earnest in this thread. I like "Joy Inside My Tears" which indicates that I'm self-involved. And I like "Our Love Is Easy" because it's tragic and romantic, and I'm sure that means something blah blah blah enneagram.

    But really, the reason I love songs has more to do with the songs', like, musical qualities than the deep and powerful association with my soul or whatever. I like "All That's Known" from Spring Awakening. That's nice. I like how it's all iconoclastic and "I'm gonna be famous and awesome 'cause I believe in life and not the anterior forms" but I'd rather get that from a poem than from a song, really.
    Not a rule, just a trend.

    IEI. Probably Fe subtype. Pretty sure I'm E4, sexual instinctual type, fairly confident that I'm a 3 wing now, so: IEI-Fe E4w3 sx/so. Considering 3w4 now, but pretty sure that 4 fits the best.

    Yes 'a ma'am that's pretty music...

    I am grateful for the mystery of the soul, because without it, there could be no contemplation, except of the mysteries of divinity, which are far more dangerous to get wrong.

    yeah, there is some absurdity in an actor claiming music brought tragic bliss, after the scene was over. not downplaying anything, but you either catch a wave or see it peak from a distance.

    this is where I think tool has the right idea in building an interpretation from the most basic sounds.

    indeed

    My genial spirits fail;
    And what can these avail
    To lift the smothering weight from off my breast?
    It were a vain endeavor,
    Though I should gaze forever
    On that green light that lingers in the west:
    I may not hope from outward forms to win
    The passion and the life, whose fountains are within.

    Yes.

    Also, Dejection (and its sister-ode, and most of those conversation poems) at least appears to present experience in real-time, which is more like catching the wave than reflecting on it in solitude.

    right, and yet only in solitude could they be created, whereas improvised music tends to have the same effect. instruments embed a person in their feelings, and pens suspend the two, in the same way a piece of paper does the composer and symphony.

    oh GOD GALEN YOU LIKE BUMP OF CHICKEN TOO?

    <3
    She is wise
    beyond words
    beautiful within
    her soul
    brighter than
    the sun
    lovelier than
    love
    dreams larger
    than life
    and does not
    understand the
    meaning of no.
    Because everything
    through her, and in her, is
    "Yes, it will be done."

    I love music so much it is hard to pick a favorite. I asked myself if I were only allowed to listen to one song, the rest of my life, what would I choose. This one won, hand's down. It reminds me of all the tragic or lost loves I have experienced, not just in this lifetime but many lives, throughout history and beyond (yes I do remember) and how they made me stronger. It reminds me to appreciate and never forget what I received from them during the time we spent together. Sometimes it is the same person different body, different time. I wonder if they remember me too. Every time I listen to it I get an intense, inner sensation, of mind, body, and soul expansion. It also gives me goosebumps. Omg, I sound so sentimental right now. :/


    @Bluebird I love your selection too.

    Are you going to Scarborough Fayre
    Parsley Sage Rosemary and Thyme
    Remember me to one who lives there
    He was once a true love of mine

    Have him find me an acre of land
    Parsley Sage Rosemary and Thyme
    Between the sea and oe'r the sand
    Then he'll be a true love of mine

    Love imposes impossible tasks
    Parsley Sage Rosemary and Thyme
    Although not more than any heart asks
    And I must know he's a true love of mine

    Have you been to Scarborough Fayre
    Parsley Sage Rosemary and Thyme
    Remember me to one who lives there
    He was once a true love of mine

     

    "In Simon and Garfunkel’s song, Scarborough Fair, they make reference to 4 herbs: parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme. Have you ever wondered at the meaning of this line in the song, or why it was even included? It was the second line in every stanza; therefore, we have to assume it had some significance. But what was it?
    In early times, herbs and flowers were often used as symbols of what someone wanted to say or how they felt about someone or something. Each of these herbs have a meaning. Let’s look at these meanings in reference to the song.

    These herbs could symbolize virtues that the singer wishes his true love and he had – past, present and future. If they had had them in the past, they would perhaps still be lovers. They will need them in the present to overcome the obstacles they have each laid out for each other. And they will need them in the future, should they once again find their way back to each other.

    In the song, each of the lovers ask impossible tasks of the other as a prerequisite of becoming lovers once more. This seems to indicate a bitterness – asking the impossible to gain merit … as a form of punishment or repentance. The very impossibility of the tasks would torment the soul of the one wishing to complete them.

    Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme

    Parsley is said to remove bitterness, physically as well as spiritually. It is also used to represent merriment. Once the lovers overcome the bitterness they feel, they then can look forward to their reunion should they find a way to complete the impossible tasks they have laid out for each other.

    Sage symbolizes a long life, wisdom, and domestic virtue. This herb therefore represents what they once had as lovers – a domestic virtue; and what they need to accomplish the tasks each have laid out for the other – wisdom and a long life. In some cases, sage has also been used to symbolize strength, another virtue they will need if they are ever to be reunited.

    Rosemary symbolizes faithfulness and remembrance. The lovers must remain faithful to themselves and to each other if they are to have a future together. Rosemary also helps them remember what they had so that they do not become discouraged by the impossible tasks they must now accomplish. By remembering what they had, they know what they are working towards.

    Thyme represents courage, daring and activity. All of these virtues point to what it will take in order to complete the tasks so that they may once again be lovers. It will take courage and daring to face the tasks, along with much activity to complete them."

    there are a handful I love, but this one is definitely the purest, and on some level is so archetypally singular that I feel somewhat pretentious calling it a favorite, but whatever. to me it resides in the divine realm (if you could imagine a state of mind produced by acid, shrooms and dmt without any artificial undertones), not just because you can hear a very mild, light, high-pitched, ethereal vocal in the background during the chorus; there's just something about it that extends beyond the realm of music. like some songs you can listen to over and over again without them getting old, but this constitutes an almost completely self-contained experience, and almost seems to get more original and refined with each listen. it also perfectly juxtaposes and connects the themes of battle, death and victory: the beginning implies a death with a potential victory as it leads into battle; the battle culminates in a death that becomes transcendent in its very trailing off and brings victory into resolute question; and the victory becomes something distinct from yet connected to the battle, while testifying back to the death. it's also an exemplary encapsulation of the beta quadra cycle: the j-sub rationals bring in the fallen wist and melodic gravity, which the j-sub irrationals then translate into a more mobile, uplifting melody, which leads to the p-sub rationals' meditative entrance into battle and descent into the flames, and the p-sub irrationals ascend at the point where the guitar solo takes off. the latter part of the chorus then constitutes a kind of platonic phase, where each segment is contained and something emergent is created. good stuff.

    I have to admit I was a little bit skeptical but it delivered on the transcendental. I remember seeing it posted before but this time I heard it on a whole different level. I am not sure when I will listen again but I will and I am sure it will manage to take me even beyond the experience I had this time. I got lots of visuals and colors with my eyes closed. Things that morphed into other things with some quasi-Giger-ish imagery from my own imagination. Colors were deeper, yet somewhat subdued, but still vivid. I know myself well enough that I need to be in a certain state of mind and free of outer distractions to listen again. Thanks.

    Why? Because I know what trauma is. I know what it means to come undone.

    Here is another:

    C'mon, do I really need a reason to love this song? Its a video of people drinking milk till they puke. Also, I love the complexity of the rhythms of this song. If you think its hard to listen to, you are weak.
