Theme songs for the caregiver.

Started by

Music to express ourselves, music to inspire, songs you'd think one of us wrote. I thought of this one because, ironically, of praise I've received for my willingness to care for someone: "Superman (It's Not Easy)" by Five for Fighting. You can find it on YouTube via Google (Bing, etc.)

TRAIN - CALLING ALL ANGELS

I need a sign, to let me know you're here
All of these lines are being crossed over the atmosphere
I need to know, that things are gonna look up
'Cause I feel us drowning in a sea spilled from a cup

When there is no place safe and no safe place to put my head
When you can feel the world shake from the words that are said

And I'm, calling all Angels
And I'm, calling all you Angels

And I won't give up, if you don't give up
I won't give up, if you don't give up
I won't give up, if you don't give up
I won't give up, if you don't give up

I need a sign to let me know you're here
'Cause my TV set just keeps it all from being clear
I want a reason for the way things have to be
I need a hand to help build up some kind of hope inside of me

And I'm, calling all Angels
And I'm, calling all you Angels
I don't know if it is a theme song or not, but when I feel tattered, Gordon Lightfoot's "Don Quixote" puts me in a more noble frame of mind.
"They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!" by Napoleon XIV
Oh, Hank, why didn't I think of that one. It is the perfect theme song.
How about "Oh What a Night"
Or - I'm Only Human.
For many, including myself, a good one would be Diamond Rio's "What More Do You Want From Me."
Moving Pictures, "What About ME?" How could I forget that one. There needs to be a verse in there about a caregiver.
"We Gotta Get Outta This Place", by Eric Burden and The Animals.
I sing it frequently in many situations.
HowDidIGetHere, excellent choice. I watched the video. I hadn't heard that song in years and it really pulled at my heart.

Keep the conversation going (or start a new one)
