You'll Never Walk Alone is the title but the song's meaning is most important.

The song I sing to myself when I'm struggling is "When You Walk Through A Storm".  I first heard it in middle school choir and have used it to bring peace to my heart ever since.

I have a Crosley record player that plays 78s, 45s, and 33and1/3 long play vinyls. it looks and sounds like ones I had in the 1950s. I've had it a few years and paid maybe 60-70 dollars for it. there are different retro players available. I have alot of old vinyls in speeds mentioned above. vinyl albums ,oldies, are readily available although not for $5 like years ago. My old records are somewhat scratchy but I really enjoy listening to them on my retro-look record player. I am forgiving of the lack of high quality sound as it pretty much sounds like it did back then. No remotes, you set the needle on the record by hand. Just like you used to change the tv channel by hand!

Yes music does make life better!  "STAYING ALIVE" by the Bee Gees was my favorite song during cancer treatment.

I have a few. I once bought an entire CD for one song: Louis Armstrong, "It's a Wonderful World." 

"How Great Thou Art" has been a favorite since I was very young.

 

Also "The River" by Garth Brooks, "Life's a Dance" by John Michael Montgomery....and above all these is

 

"Imagine" by John Lennon.

 

I could not exist without music!

I like the Eagles "Take it Easy" and "Hotel California" among many others

Does anyone remember Brry Sadler's Ballad of the Green Berets ? It isn't just for our generation, but for all who served.
