The story behind the song:

My boyfriend and I had been together for nearly two years when we went on vacation to Amsterdam. He was my first love. We shared lots of interests, from the same taste in music to a love of the cinema. Before our vacation, we had been arguing more than usual. I was kind of hoping that our trip away would be quality time where we could relax and leave all the problems behind us. And we did, it was perfect, we were recapturing all the reasons we got together in the first place and acting like a couplke of teenagers in love. However, on the last day we had an almighty argument and at the end of it we broke up.

Within days I was regretting it. In the heat of the moment I'd just been so angry. But even when we were splitting up, I knew that deep down inside, I didn't really want it to end. So I asked him to take me back. He said no. I was heartbroken. I barely left the house and I spent all my time just wallowing in self pity.

A month later, and after a lot of tears, I felt strong enough to meet up with him. We organized to go to the cinema, just as friends, but I couldn't help it, I had to be sure. So I asked him if there was any chance of us getting back together again. Again he said no.

However, what suprised me was that instead of being upset I felt strangely liberated. For the first time in weeks I managed to hold my head up and I realized that life could go on.

We parted as friends and on the way home I turned on my mp3 player. This was the first track I heard. It automatically lifted me. And it gave me the strength to move on.

The story behind the song:

Growing up I knew I was different from all the other boys. I wasn't interested in playing football at all, instead I preferred to hang out with the girls. I used to get called names and beaten up, so I decided to learn martial arts. I wasn't bullied as much after that, but I started to realize I might be gay when I started to develop feelings for my instructor. Sadly though, he was strait and did not take to kindly to my attention. So much so, that he turned violent toward me. It was a wake up call and I decided to come out. I told my parents who reacted badly. They called me names and they threw me out of the house, which hurt me deeply. I felt awful. I didn't know where to go or who to turn to. I even felt like commiting suicide.

Then one day my dad came in to find me. He apologized for what they had done to me and he said that they wanted me to come back home, which I did.

Some people have an easier time coming out, others, like me, haven't. I just wanted to let people know, those who are thinking about coming out, yeah, it can disturb a family, but with a bit of time and patience, everything can be healed.

That's what this changing track is about.

green day

Name: Richard

Song that changed Richard's life:

Green Day - When September Ends(listen now) (lyrics)


The story behind the song:


I've always been unlucky in love and have had my heart broken alot. I've fallen for lots of people but I always ended up getting fed the dreaded line 'lets just be friends.'

I decided I would be better off giving up on love and concentrating on my work life. It was then that my employers decided to let me go. I felt like my life was worthless and I pretty much had no future. Eventually I found a job at a supermarket and focused again on my job. I got on with all my work mates except for one particular girl who barely spoke to me apart from the occassional brief chat about work. Slowly we began to speak more and I realized we had loads in comon.

Eventually we started to go out. We've had an amazing year and when we went on vacation we finally anounced our love for eachother. This woman completely turned my life around. However our fledgling love was under threat because she was going off to school after the summer and I knew how difficult it would be to carry on a long distance relationship with all that space between us.

Fortuanley our relationship was strong enough to survive and we are now more in love than ever. When we were driving back from that vacation we heard this track and now whenever I hear it I can't help but think of the night when we sat on the beach and confessed our love for eachother. I never wanted September to come at all...

thats just the way it is

Name: Jemma

Song that changed Jemma's life: 2Pac - Changes (listen now) (lyrics)


The story behind the song:

In October 2001 my dad died and my whole world shattered around me. I was absolutely devastated and I found it a massive effort just to function each day. As I am the eldest out of me and my sister I took it upon myself to be a rock for her and my mom. This enabled me to chanel all my pain into making sure my sister and my mom were both ok. I supported them through all the heart ache.

After a few months my mother and sister were coming to terms with our loss and beginning to just about function again. Then I heard this song as I was driving in my car. It made me realize that no matter how much I channel my pain into other things, it wasn't going to change the fact that my dad had died and I was never going to see him again.

I pulled over and I broke down.

It was finally my turn to grieve. The next few days were hell as I came to terms with what hapened to my dad. This song enabled me to move on with my life and to grieve for my dad who I still miss terribly. Not a day goes by when I don't think about him.

Dance to the music.

Name: Emma

Song that changed Emma's life: Madonna - Vouge (listen now) (lyrics)

The story behind the song:

I'd always been different from my sister. I was always the fat chubby one whereas she has always been skinny and perfect. I always used to resent her and as we got older we drifter apart.

When I was younger I used to dance around my room that would help me escape from my life. The opening line would always pop into my head when I was being picked on or bullied for being overweight. Just over a year ago I had the realization that I didn't want to be chubby and I decided that I needed to change on th inside before the out. I went on a diet and joined a gym and since that time I have lost four stone and I feel really happy in my body.

About two months ago I was at a club when that song came on and it gave me the confidence to approach a georgeous guy, which I would never have done before. We got chatting and we've been going out ever since. I also made more of an effort with my sister and we are now closer than we've ever been before. I can definately say that song has been a huge influence on my life.

I need you

Name: Mike

Song that changed Mike's life: Nelly - Dilemma (listen now) (lyrics)

The story behind the song:

Last summer a girl came to work with us during her vacation from college and the moment I saw her I knew that she was special. After working with her for a couple of weeks I thought we were getting along really well and there was a spark between us. But, by the time I worked up the courage to ask her out she had left for a vacation with her friends. I really missed her and for the next few weeks I kept an eye out for her whenever I was in town, just in case she happened to be there too. I blocked out my feelings for her and I tried to move on. Just when I thought I was over her, she stepped back into my life. It was a Monday Morning at 8 am and she had come back to work over the Easter holiday. All of a sudden all my feelings came back and I could not wait to talk to her again but I found out that she had found herself a boyfriend and I couldn't tell her how I felt in case she didn't reciprocate. She left again after a couple of weeks and I didn't have the chance to say goodbye. I'm now looking forward to the summer and wishing that she will come back so I can tell her exactly how I really feel. The one song I would listen to as I agonized over what to do still gives me hope that it will eventually work out for me

wear sunscreen

Name: Rosie

Song that changed her life: Baz Luhrmann - Everybody's Free To Wear Sunscreen (listen now) (lyrics)

The story behind the song:

Last September, I started a college course in healthcare and for the first time in my life I made some really good true friends. I found the course very tough and didn't see a future for myself working in that area. I started getting very depressed about my course and one day I came out of the class crying and saying I just didn't want to do it anymore. My friend Luke sat me down and told me I could do it if I put my mid to it and he really helped me have a positive outlook. We became a lot closer after that and we would often talk to eachother about other things that were bothering us.

One lunchtime we were talking about our dream jobs. He started talking about his and he said he was really determined to do it. When I told him mine I realized that if I did continue with my healthcare course then I wouldn't have any chance of doing my dream job. He helped convince me that I should switch courses and really have a go at living my dream. Although I was worried about what my parents would think, on his advice I went for it.

Next month I start a new course in radio and I'm hoping it will lead to my new job and I will be a lot happier in my career now thanks to Luke's support.

While I was struggling to decide what to do with my life I would listen to one song which made me realize that its my life and I could do what I wanted with it.

you're no good for me

Name: Anthony

Song that changed Anthony's life: Prodigy - No Good (listen now) (lyrics)

The story behind the song:

Four years ago I moved in with my dad because I wasn't getting along with my mom very well at all and I needed a bit of a change. At first I enjoyed living with my dad and things were going great but after a few months it all began to go a bit downhill. My dad would not let me go see my family and I wasn't allowed to spend time with a lot of my friends.

That summer I promised my sister that I would do something special for her birthday. I wanted to take my band to where she lives and play for her, but my dad told me that I couldn't do that. My sister and I had been so excited, but he stopped it from happening. I decided to disobey him and go anyway. My dad then turned up at my mom's doorstep with all my stuff and said that if I didnt come home now, that instant, then I couldn't come home at all. At that moment i decided that I couldn't continue to live that way and it convinced me that I should try again with my mom.

We get along really well now and we are very happy.

There has been one song which has always been able to help me when I've felt down over the past couple of years...

Do you want more?

Name: Samantha

Song that changed Samantha's life: Jay-Z,Linkin Park - Numb / Encore (listen now) (lyrics)

The story behind the song:

At 14 I made friends with the wrong group of people. I started using drugs and stayed out every night. I was basically ruining my life. When I turned 15 I got pregnant and also dropped out of school due to depression. Sadly I had a miscarriage and from then on it felt like my life wasn't worth living.

One day I was sitting in my room alone and this song came on the radio. It hit me so hard. I was struck by it's powerful lyrics and it made me realize there and then that I could pull myself back from the position I had gotten myself into.

With a lot of determination I managed to get myself into college and I know have a beautiful baby girl called nicole. Everytime I hear this song it makes me think and reminds me of how I got myself through such a rough part of my life. It makes me feel very proud of what I've achieved.

a cup of ambition

Name: Emily

Song that changed Emily's life: Dolly Parton - 9 To 5 (listen now) (lyrics)

The story behind the song:

Starting college last September was pretty daunting for me. I came from a small and very sheltered town and suddenly I was thrown into a great big city. What was even harder was that I was leaving my friends and the love of my life at home. First term was very difficult and I took every opportunity that I could to travel home and to try and make my relationship work. Just before christmas everything changed and we realized that it would be better for both of us if we were just friends. I felt quite sorry for myself, to be honest I felt I was going to burst and I spent a lot of time on my own at home. Then some of my classmates invited me out and a sog came on at a bar which made us all jump up and dance around.

That was the start of a brand new era. Since then I have really enjoyed my university life and I've made some great friends, and I'm simply having fun. If it wasn't for that night and that song I would probably be back home in my little town, instead of living the brilliant life that I now have.

Spinning Around

Name: Lee

Song that changed Lee's life: Kylie Minogue - Spining Around (listen now) (lyrics)

The story behind it:

Two years ago I was living with my fiance and I was miserable. I just felt that it wasn't going very well with him because he was lying about money and we argued a lot. I spent a lot of nights crying silently to myself in bed wondering what would happen if we split up. I was scared of having nowhere to live and being on my own again. It was just very daunting and I felt trapped. In the end I plucked up the courage and ended the three and a half year relationship. However that then caused more problems wondering about where I was going to live and I ended up on anti-depressents and felt very alone. My work suffered dramatically and I didn't want to speak to anyone or do anything accept bury my head in the sand.

As I lay in the bath one night listening to music, I actually thought about killing myself. It was a horrifying moment which really shocked me. Then came this song and the first few words really hit home. I wanted to be the person I used to be instead of this miserable boring recluse that I had become, and I knew I could do it.
I had another bought with depression since then but I always put this song on and it gives me hope. I'm getting better and I know there is a life out there for me somewhere.

Just A Day

Name: Kelly

The story behind it:

Four and a half years ago at college I was introduced to a guy named Tony who I just knew I had to get to know better. There was just something about him I needed to know more about and during our time at college we got closer. We ended up moving to different cities, but remained best friends. We saw eachother whenever we could and we cried, we laughed, and we smiled with eachother through many things.

We are both huge fans of the same bands and last year we went to see them together. It was brilliant and they played the song that we always danced to when we'd go out in town. Not long after that gig we were out one night and we had our first kiss. Straigt away that song was played and we knew it was the beginning of something very special.

Now we are together and I just cannot imagine my life without him. That song reminds me of the journey we've been through together to get to where we are now.

Ready To Go

Name: Tina

The story behind it:

I was 13 when my parents got divorced. My two younger brothers were too young to really know what was going on, but unfortunately for me, I understood everything. I heard my parents arguing at night and in the days before they told us I knew exactly what was coming. My mom left and me and my two brothers stayed with my dad. He was already a serious alcoholic and was unemployed. It was almost completely down to me to look after my brothers, who were still clueless as to what was happening around them. I also had to try and get on with my school work and exams, which was proving really difficult.

I missed my mom badly. I just felt like runing away from it all, but I didn't and I stuck with it. It was very tough, but I did pass my exams. Around the same time, my dad met somebody else. He then spent three months in rehab getting better.

When he got home I realized that although life would never go back to the way it once was, things were gonna be just fine.

This was the first song I heard after that realization. I'm so happy I didn't quit when the going got tough. Now I am as happy as could be.

Purple Rain

Name: Adam

The story behind it:

Last year my father was killed in a car accident. I was close to him, but I wish I had been even closer. I regret not taking the chance to be with him while he was alive. After his death, I was in pieces and my life was in a horrible place. I burried myself in my work which put a strain on my relationships with my girlfriend and family. I was constantly arguing with people over the most stupid things. Luckily, my brother, who is my closest and most valued friend, helped me through it and put me back on the right path.

We played a song at my dads funeral, and when I first heard it I just fell into my brother's arms and it broke my heart. Now though, I no longer cry tears of saddness when I hear it. Instead it fills me with joy because I'm able to remember all the best times my father and I spent together.

Champagne Supernova

Name: RJ

Song that changed your life: Oasis - Champagne Supernova(listen now) (lyrics)

The story behind it:

Not so long ago, walking into a room of more than 2 people would have made me physically sick. I would get so nervous and so self conscious at the thought of it, that my life was unbearable. Going to college became impossible because I couldn't walk into a class full of people if I was late. I'd always been known as the quiet one which was fine when I was younger, but it started getting in the way as I got older. I didn't know what to do about my shyness. I was fine with friends and family. But with any other group I was a wreck and it was crippling me.

Around the height of my anxiety I was watching comic relief and I remember crying when a song was preformed becaus it was so heartfelt. The next day it was the talking point at school and it gave me the opportunity to talk to someone properly. That someone was a teacher and she helped to change my entire outlook on life. She worked with me for months after our initial chat. Helping me to see I could be more confident and boosting my self esteem. If I had never chatted with her about the performance of that song, I would still be shy today. I can still be very quiet and I'm not great amongst crowds, but I'm now a lot more confident within myself.

Breath Me

Name: Erica

Song that changed your life: Sia - Breath Me (listen now)(download) (lyrics)

The story behind it:

This song evokes many emotions about my mom who passed away 8 years ago today.

My mom was a brilliant woman, with so much potential, so much passion, so much conviction. She could have done anything with her life. She was outwardly powerful, extremely opinionated, and could at times be somewhat intimidating. But in reality, she was scared. She was lost. She had all the tools to be this highly successful person, but she wanted coddling. She wanted to be held. She was scared to move forward. There would be times where it seemed she took strides forward, but then she would lose herself. She couldn't quite make it to the top. In reality, all she wanted was to be loved. She had so much love in her life, but she wanted more. She needed to be the focus, but was not willing to reciprocate that need. She tried so hard: she tried to be a good mother, and she was. She tried to be a good wife, she wanted to be a faithful friend. She tried to be the lifeof the party, the beautiful woman with the long blond hair. But when she couldn't be that person all the time, she turned into a little lost girl. In the end, she died thinking she was a lost cause. We, her family, know differently.

Breathe Me, to me, is about somoene who is lost. Someone who tries and tries, but gets knocked down everytime, no matter what. Somoene who is so fragile that any bad time or dip breaks her. Someone who tries to cope, tries to live, tries to thrive, but always ends up broken. Someone who just wants to be held and be told that everything will be alright.

This is a very special song for me on so many levels. There are many songs that evoke emotion, whether it's a song from my childhood or a song that played at my wedding, but this song is so powerful to me because it haunts me every single time I hear it.

My mom was an amazingly brave and talented woman, and she is extremely missed. Everytime I hear Breathe Me I think of her and her life and how much I love her.

Move Along

Name:

Song that changed your life:
All American Rejects - Move Along (listen now) (lyrics)


The story behind it:

Me and my boy...

Me and my boyfriend [ex now] broke up after 1 year and a half and we had a bad break up. We haven't spoken in 8 months now. After the break up, music was the only thing that could keep me quiet and it became a shrink for me in a way. I listened to The All-American Rejects 24/7 because they have amazing break up lyrics, confident lyrics and they are my favorite band.

I quote from the Move Along song "When all you've got to keep is strong, move along, move along, like I know you do, and even when your hope is gone, move along, move along, just to make it through" those words helped me.

I no longer think of my ex as that dumb guy who broke my heart I think of him as a big spike in the road and I jumped over it with scratches that were mended. Move Along is an amazing song and it speaks the most to me, and the whole All-American Reject CD's have the greatest songs I think for break ups or any "tragic" moment in your life.

If Your Girl Only Knew

Name: Annie

Song that changed your life: Aaliyah - If Your Girl Only Knew (listen now) (lyrics)

The story behind it:

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK You!

Oh my GOD, fuck you. What in the hell is wrong with you? Why do you look at me all night & say NOTHING. Why, when you literally run in to me by the restrooms, wouldn't you stop for even a second to to say something, anything more than "hi" as you rush past me? WORST yet...how can you make a point of coming over to I was dancing and make a huge deal of saying good bye to my friend & completely & utterly ignore my existence!!!? What the FUCK? Do I seriously turn invisible when she's around? I'm thinking not, considering how many times I saw your eyes glued to me on the dance floor. Are you that fucking scared of her actually grabbing a clue & kicking your sorry ass to the curb? 'Cause honestly? If she hasn't figured it out yet then she's not all that bright to begin with & she's never gonna catch on. And, since we're on the subject... wtf is her problem? All night with the sideways looks from her beady little eyes. You know what sugar? We're NOT friends! We've never BEEN friends! So get over the fact that your boyfriend crushed on some girl you don't know & she crushed right back. If you trust him (and I'm really sorry if you do) then GET OVER IT. If you don't, quit staring at me & point your icy glares in another direction. It is not now, nor has it ever been MY job to protect your relationship. And yes, I was ready to try to wipe the slate with you - if only because it's been getting awkward in certain situations, but you know what? I don't want to be your friend. Even if you turned out to be an amazing person (which from the way you look down on my friends & I can't really picture being the case) I STILL wouldn't want to be your friend, because really, why would I want to carry around that kind of guilt? I would, however, like you to see your sig-other grow a pair & maybe manage to say hi to me in front of you.

Tender

Name: Natasha

Song that changed your life: Blur - Tender (listen now) (lyrics)

The story behind it:

My brother has been going through a really rough patch in his life since his relationship with his girlfriend fell apart. Despite the fact that he would give his life and soul for those two kids. I didn't really know how to help him, so I just tried t be there for him. At night he would get through his lonliness with his music. One time, when I was around at his place, he was making a photo collage of his sons while he listened to the stereo. It was one of the most emotional moments I've ever witnessed. When one particular song came on I just held him and we cried together. It was the first time he had let all his emotions go and though the hard times are not over, I know that one day his sons will be able to appreciate how much love he has for them. I know that that song that we listened to that night wil help him get through it

Crazy For You

Name: Jenny

Song that changed your life: Madonna - Crazy For You (listen now) (lyrics)

The story behind it:

I just turned 18 and havent had the easiest time with relationships. All of them have ended in tears and one ended up so badly that I completely lost all my trust in men. At the time I felt very unlucky that I couldn't hold down a proper relationship and I became very depressed. I couldn't face school and so I dropped out. But then I couldn't get any work and because of that I had no money. One day I felt so rotten that something snapped inside me... I decided to get a job. Luckily I found one and after I had been working there for a few months I met a georgeous guy that I instantly felt attracted to. I didn't know what to do though and because my past relationships had ended so badly that I didn't want to make the first move. Until, that is, I heard this song, which made me want to just go for it. All I can say now is that we've been together ever since. I am happier than I've ever been, I'm in love, I've learned to trust again, and best of all on my birthday last year he proposed.

Love Story

Name: Emma

Song that changed your life: Layo And Bushwacka - Love Story (mp3 link) (lyrics)

The story behind it:

No matter what happened throughout my life I always believed that I would find my soul mate, but the end of a five year relationship meant that I had lost my faith in that. It got me down for a while but I managed to pull myself together and realize that life was there to be lived. I made a big effort to spend lots of time with my friends and we had some great weekends having loads of fun together. My sister was living abroad at the time and my new found freedom gave me the chance to go and visit her. While I was there I met an English guy who was out there working and we got along really well, immeadiately. I ended up spending a lot of time with him. One night we were on a beach, we lit a fire, we looked up at the stars, and we chatted right through until morning. It was the perfect romantic night. When my holiday came to an end we were both really gutted, but we did arrange to meet up when he came back. Obviously I really wanted that to happen, but I was quite realistic about it all and I didn't expect to hear from him again.

When I landed back home I turned my phone on to a text message that said, "I hope everything that we said comes true. I miss you already." We did get together and ultimately we traveled again and by the end of our next trip we were totally loved up. We got married a year ago and we now have a lovely daughter together.

My song reminds me of the vacation where I first met my soul mate.

Thumbing My Way

Name:

Song that changed your life: Pearl Jam - Thumbing My Way (mp3 link) (lyrics)

The story behind it:

I became a Pearl Jam fan in 2003. And when I fell in love with the music, I
fell hard.

In 2004, I started law school...and only a few months later, I learned that
I had cancer. It was something I knew I had to get through, but it was
overwhelming.

One song, in particular, was calming... The lyrics are "...no matter how cold
the winter, there's a springtime ahead."

Pearl Jam's music is full of inspiring lyrics and stellar tunes, but
Thumbing My Way has become the song in my head and my heart.
If you haven't heard it, change that...

The Gambler

Name: Melissa

Song that changed your life: Kenny Rogers - The Gambler (listen now) (lyrics)

The story behind it:

I used to listen to it over an over when I was living in my apt on the upper east side, after [my ex boyfriend] attacked me, it was the only thing i could do to calm myself down enough to go to sleep... I would sit up in bed looking at the door terrified that he was going to knock it down. Those were also the days I was doing a lot of drugs. So now when I listen to it, i get this sad feeling inside of how sad i was then, but then so grateful at how far my life has come since those days. Im not joking it still makes me cry when i hear it. Music moves our souls.

All I Need

Name: Meg

Song that changed your life: Air - All I Need (listen) (lyrics)

The story behind it:

About 10 years ago when I was 16, I came across this guy at school who was a couple of years older than me and I liked him as he was cool and just one of the school jokers. Fast forward to the summer of 2004 and I was getting married to that funy guy from school. The moment just before I walked down the isle was a wonderfully scary moment but I had a song playing which brought me a wave of calm and made me realize I was doing the right thing. It was a perfect song to send me down the isle on my wedding day. I know that I made the best and most amazing decision in marrying my husband on that day and now when I hear that song I just feel so happy!

Pride

Name: Sam

The story behind it:

A couple of years ago my brother was severely depressed and I tried my hardest to support him in any way possible. On his road to recovery we used to have really intimate long conversations about life and whatever was bothering him. One time we were chatting and somehow it turned into a really bad argument which resulted in us both saying some very mean things, and him storming out of the room. We didn't speak to eachother for a couple of days and we ignored eachother in the house. One time I sat down and thought about what happened between me and my brother and he came running down the stairs and told me that he had heard a song that had made him realize that he couldn't let something so trivial ruin our great friendship. We both forgave eachother instantly. That song now makes me realize how close we nearly came to giving up on eachother, but instead we are still supporting eachother and we're having a lot of fun together as well.
