The post 'most emotional game you have played' has inspired me to do this. Write down a song that means alot to you and why Could be a song that makes you cry, could be a song that makes you happy, makes you angry, makes you feel invincible! For me its My Chemical Romance - Headfirst for Halos The lyrics i couldn't care much for but the jumpy tune and happy melody just makes me grin like a lunatic and sends me hyper as I sing along to it. Whenever I'm crazy and being insane this fits perfectly in the background.

My most meaningful song would defiantly have to be I was only 19 by Redgum

Its about Australias involvment in the Vietnam war. I dont know why, but this song just gets me thinking. The things some of the men would have seen, some as young or younger as 19. Our soilders went to hell and back, and on return to Australia, they where treated like crap, even though they where conscripted.

Just a few things: Canungra & Shoalwater = Australian training areas for Jungle warfare Slouch hat = Those funny hats worn by the Australian Army S.L.R = Self Loading Rifle V.B = Victorian Bitter, Australian beer

Spoiler: Show

Mum and Dad and Denny saw the Passing out Parade at Puckapunal (it was a long march from Cadets) The 6th Battalion was the next to tour, and it was me who drew the card We did Canungra - Shoalwater before we left

And Townsville lined the footpaths as we marched down to the Quay This clipping from the paper shows us young and strong and clean And there's me in me slouch hat with me S.L.R. and Greens God help me, I was only 19

From Vung tau riding Chinooks, to the dust at Nui Dat I'd been in and out of choppers now for months But we made our tents a home, V.B. and pin ups on the lockers And an Asian orange sunset through the scrub And can you tell me Doctor why I still can't get to sleep? And the night time's just a jungle dark and a barking M16 And what's this rash that comes and goes, can you tell me what it means? God help me, I was only 19

A four week operation, when each step can mean your last one on two legs It was a war within yourself But you wouldn't let your mates down 'til they had you dusted off So you closed your eyes and thought about something else

Then someone yelled out 'Contact' and the bloke behind me swore We hooked in there for hours, then a God Almighty roar Frankie kicked a mine the day that Mankind kicked the moon God help me, he was going home in June

I can still see Frankie drinking tinnies, in the Grand Hotel On a 36 hour Rec leave in Vung Tau And I can still hear Frankie, lying screaming in the jungle 'Til the morphine came and killed the bloody row

And the A.N.Z.A.C. legend didn't mention mud and blood and tears And the stories that my Father told me, never seemed quiet real I caught some pieces in my back that I didn't even feel God help me, I was only 19

And can you tell me Doctor why I still can't get to sleep? And why the Channel 7 chopper chills me to my feet? And what's this rash that comes and goes, can you tell me what it means? God help me, I was only 19.

now you people all think i'm a weirdo, and that is my kind of music. Well, it's not my favourite song, but even with the title of the song, it always make me happy for no reason. :) YouTube - No More - Suicide Commando

Or perhaps

The opening chords to Heart-Shaped Box send chills down my spine every time I hear them, I don't know quite why but that song just goes straight to my soul every time I hear it. It just covers so many bases in terms of what I've been through and what I'm going through, and in terms of what I find musically impressive.
