Sometimes songs depict various situations in life, or at least the emotions behind them. Some are by artists of faith and others are not. I know a lot of “broken” spirits right now. Some have lost partners. Some lost children. Some lost jobs and their homes, etc…Some lost their childhood. These are the top songs for various situations that can leave one “broken”. Some are going to be more familiar than others–and some are a tribute to those who love the broken just as they are–or those who know they will find their way…And I threw one on here for those who are hypocritical enough to judge the broken, yet have never walked in their shoes. Enjoy–and grab your Kleenex if you are broken…At least you will know you are not alone.

NOW FOR THE ONES THAT REALLY GET TO ME PERSONALLY:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_KhkXNF6-U “Mr. Perfect”–Pink (I love this song)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSjIz8oQuko “Family Portrait”–from a girl’s perspective–parental break ups are hell. So is living in WW3. I experienced the latter in a much different way.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MUfgAbFY4CA “Wonderful”–Everclear One of the best songs involving divorce from a kid’s perspective I have ever heard in my life. Parents should listen.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQ7oqmikZDQ “Untitled”–Simple Plan This video accurately depicts how driving drunk destroys a family. Watch it…
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MS91knuzoOA “Jeremy”–Pearl Jam Sometimes children break to the point that they kill themselves.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zPG1n1B0Ydw “Stay”–Sugarland Sometimes it is the other woman who is the stronger one when she realizes it’s best to walk the hell away.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1gmgwx77osw&list=FL5P37z_TMECOYMgJMs0RE6w “I Was Only 19“–Video from The Herds version of “I was only 19” with the music of the original by Redgum. This is the very best song about PTSD I have ever heard and the video kicks ass. This is an Australian video.
There…Pick and choose! Anyway these are a few of my favorite songs about various states of being.
