    Hey, I am a bit stuck with an assignment I've got.

    I've got individual therapy to help me deal with my emotions and anger and all. And now I've got this 'assignment': I have to make a CD with music on it; songs I associate with sadness, happiness, anger and fear.

    Well it took about 3 hours to make a selection of only 4 songs for sadness (there's way too many of them :laugh: ), but I've managed that. I've also managed the songs for happiness and for anger..

    But I need a few songs which I associate with fear, which is where I'm stuck.

    I've got like 2 songs, but I need another 2.
    (the ones I've got are "Deftones - Change (In the house of flies)" and "Andrew Lloyd Webber - Madame Giry's Tail/Fairground" -from Phantom Of The Opera-)

    anybody got any suggestions?
  2. "Hide in Your Shell" - by Supertramp. It's an oldie-moldy, but captures all our fears as well as compassion and empathy for those fears...

    (another later live version)

    Hide in Your Shell - Supertramp - 1997

    Hide in your shell cos the world is out to bleed you for a ride
    What will you gain making your life a little longer?
    Heaven or hell, was the journey cold that gave your eyes of steel?
    Shelter behind painting your mind and playing joker

    Too frightening to listen to a stranger
    Too beautiful to put your pride in danger
    Youre waiting for someone to understand you
    But youve got demons in your closet
    And youre screaming out to stop it
    Saying lifes begun to cheat you
    Friends are out to beat you
    Grab on to what you scramble for

    Dont let the tears linger on inside now
    Cos its sure time you gained control
    If I can help you, if I can help you
    If I can help you, just let me know
    Well, let me show you the nearest signpost
    To get your heartback and on the road
    If I can help you, if I can help you
    If I can help you, just let me know.

    All through the night as you like awake and hold yourself so tight
    What do you need, a second-hand-movie-star to tend you?
    I as a boy, I believed the saying the cure for pain was love
    How would it be if you could see the world through my eyes?

    Too frightening- the fires getting colder
    Too beautiful- to think youre getting older
    Youre looking for someone to give an answer.
    But what you see is just an illusion
    Youre surrounded by confusion
    Saying lifes begun to cheat you
    Friends are out to beat you
    Grab on to what you can scramble for
    Dont let teh tears...
    ... just let me know
    I wanna know...
    I wanna know you...
    Well let me know you
    I wanna feel you
    I wanna touch you
    Please let me near you
    Can you hear what Im saying?
    Well Im hoping, Im dreamin, Im prayin
    I know what youre thinkin
    See what youre seein
    Never ever let yourself go

    Hold yourself down, hold yourself down
    Why dya hold yourself down?
    Why dont you listen, you can
    Trust me,
    Theres a place I know the way to
    A place there is need to feel you
    Feel that youre alone
    Hear me
    I know exactly what youre feelin
    Cos all your troubles are whithin you
    Please begin to see that Im just bleeding to
    Love me, love you
    Loving is the way to
    Help me, help you
    - why must we be so cool, oh so cool,?
    Oh, were such damn fools...

    (Good luck with your assignment! Sounds like a great exercise!) :smile:

    Thanks FAL1 :smile:

    Though I do like the song, to be honest for me the music sounds too 'happy' for me to feel any association with fear..
    Thanks for the link though, I actually do like the song a lot :smile:
  4. You're welcome :smile: (once in a while, it's nice to be "old") :biggrin:

    "Happy"? That song used to make me cry everytime I heard it!

    Yeah I'm not sure if happy is the right word. The lyrics are sad, imo, don't get me wrong, it's just that the melody.. Well to me it feels like it could be the melody to a happy song about love or life or something...

    @danni, thanks hun. *goes to youtube some of the songs*
