The purpose of this thread is to post some songs that you deeply identify with.

It could be the lyrics, the beat, or tone. Whatever suits you.

(I wouldn't post all the links if you have 10+ songs in mind).



For example, these are mine:

https://soundcloud.com/auroraaksnes%2Fawakening
https://soundcloud.com/the-speaker-box-below%2Femeli-sande-heaven
https://soundcloud.com/laleh%2Fcolors
https://soundcloud.com/fosterthepeoplemusic%2Fhoudini


Just pick a few songs that you relate to and post them for others to see!

And post explanations if you wish!

This is one of the main songs I think that really encompasses me as a person. A lot of what I have experienced. I think it could be an Fi song, but eh. I like it and relate to it anyway.

Thank you for making this topic! I think it is one that a few of us will enjoy.

It has always been this one (in all aspects, I mean, sound, structure, lyrics. Everything.)

I don't relate to any songs; the song merely becomes my mood at the moment, and I mostly prefer instrumental music without any words beaten into my head. There are some few songs I recoil to *very* often for no particularly ground breaking reason, like August Rain by Trance to the Sun.. it's not all that memorable, and follows a pretty formulaic pattern, but it gives me peace.

When I'm feeling down I identify with this song.

When I'm feeling really Ne-heavy I like this song:

Here we go

Lyrics:
 

I can see it all tonight underneath a perfect sky
Where the universe revolves around the pupil of an eye
And infinities stretch out from infinities within
And I'm a part of everything, I'm a part of everything

Am I falling asleep? Is it all just a dream?
Well, the cars are like water and the road is like a stream
Rolling down through the city, flowing out into the sea
Going nowhere like me, going nowhere like me

When the morning starts to glow out in the corners of the sky
All the people come and go, and the time just passes by
Then I'm only gonna see it from the corner of my eye
When the planet spins, it sings like the wings of a dragonfly

I can see it all tonight

Thoughts:
 
I relate to this song because it talks about the realization that I'm incurably subjective and I will never know, even if it paradoxically makes me feel enlightened like that's the truth I was looking for and I am seeing it all. It also talks about how everything is connected and I'm a part of it. It also talks about the meaninglessness of life, that for the most part we are roaming aimlessly through life just trying to pass by and it's reassuring instead of frightening. Just a stream of consciousness. It makes me feel aware.

Lyrics:
 
When I was dead asleep
behind towering walls
They built a world outside
and I missed the wake-up call

My stony breath crawled
to glory heavens be
there was a sea of sound
but it was silence that stole my sleep

When I was dead asleep
behind towering walls
They built a world outside
and I missed the wake-up call

When I break cripple legs
Through long winding streets
Fill me with suffering
And the people would see right through me

Thoughts:
 
I relate to both the video and the song. I'll start with the song. I relate to it, because I feel like waking up to life. My life has been pretty uneventful. I feel like I have been living under a rock for years. I feel out of it and I want to be part of this world. I feel like catching up to life, missing out on a lot of stuff. And it is my responsibility. I was so cautious, so guarded, so comfortable. I still am. "There was a sea of sound but it was silence that stole my sleep". The silence that is my life. About the imagery, I relate to the pace of the video. And also the scenery. Quiet, abandoned, like frozen in time. There's also a lot of imagery that I relate to. Paths that symbolize the transition, the unknown future, the endless roaming. I feel like an spectator of life, like those watching the group of friends having fun and bonding. How separate each individual is at the beginning of the video despite of how much it happens when we mix up together. The city at the end of the video, like representing life, bustle, noise, something to long for. I am watching over it, wanting to be part of it. And the motocyclist, a one man journey, the realization that I'm on my own. I want to cross life on my own, I want to submerge myself into it. And also the escapism. It is a relatable video for a relatable song.

Lyrics:
 
Like sinking ships drowning in the night
There's nothing wrong with you, then nothing's right
Casting baggage, throw it overboard
Though with nothing left you still fall on your sword
Does it hurt?

Line you up, blindfolded against the wall
This will be the last time that you feel the fall
Godspeed with you, may he have mercy on us
The crowd has come to thirst
But before these heads roll, I guess mine comes first

And it's hard to tell what takes me away
And/But I know for years I've lived ashamed
And I think about the wasted years
As I fall into myself

Thoughts:
 
A big part of my life can be summed up by the last paragraph. I wouldn't change a word. The first part is difficult to explain, because I don't know if I relate a lot to it or if I am interpreting it correctly. I usually talk to myself, so it could pass off as a conversation with myself. It sounds like someone judging someone else, reassessing things, in(tro)specting, grounding them, making them realize something must be done and things gotta change. I am self-critical and that's how I see it. Me putting me in place.

Thoughts:
 
I think someone could be singing this for me. This sums up a lot of things I mentioned in this post. There's a theme for burning bridges but still yearning for company and feeling afraid of being alone. I'm a ghost. I'm maybe too resigned and fatalist/nihilist for my own good. I don't think I can claim it and own it though. It paints me as something, it defines me and I don't think I should do it. But it's a recurrent theme. It's where my darkness resides. At least from the glimpses I've caught from it.

Lyrics:
 
Gravity on me, never let me down gently
Gravity with me, never let me go
No, no
Gravity

[Incomprehensible]

I don't pull me down
I don't pull me down on me
I don't pull me down
I don't pull me down on you

Thoughts:
 
I decided to post this one because I love this song. It's my favorite from the first album of Gorillaz, my favorite band, and possibly my favorite song. I remember listening to this when I got the CD and feeling connected to this song. I can try to explain why. I think this song talks about wanting to be resilient, tenacious, enduring the falls and doing it gracefully. Not that I think my life is a bumpy road and I keep on falling and standing up. For better or for worse, as I said, my life has been pretty uneventful. Gravity is the natural force that keeps us grounded. It draws us to the floor. I value that. Being able to reality check yourself, avoiding floating to keep things real. It's the disillusion. Trying to avoid escaping and forcing me to face reality. It's also something else. If I am going to fall, I'm going to do it alone, not making others fall with me just because they love me or care for me. I won't be a burden. I will carry my weight. It talks about that feeling as well. That honor. Self-respect.

I need laughter and love
Some special drug
I need cigarettes
There's killers behind us
Devils ahead, send protection


This town don't want drunkards
Or singers of bad poetry
They want dancing and drugs and laughter
And we don't have them



No one cares for me
I keep no company
I have minimal needs
And now they are through with me



Darling you will always be around
Whether my mood's up or if it's down
In dreams I try to take you far away
But you never stay



Baby in your cradle look at me
Baby you speak in rhythms now you're three
Ride your German Shepherd 'til you're five
Baby you think the TV is alive
Baby you spend the night out you're thirteen
Bending for a wish your candles lean
Baby you bang erasers and wash the board
Think just yesterday you wore a sword



There's banging on the wall
It's 5am I've got no sleep at all
Just thoughts of how I might struggle through tomorrow
Too much time in one day
Too much time to occupy
Boring thoughts
And boring moods
And boring bedtimes
Won't tell a single soul that my soul's gone
It's hard to write this song
It's all a joke
It's all been wrote down by someone who's probably dead


There's laughter from below
It's 1am how could you have known?
The thoughts of silence that had me
From going back to sleep that night
Wish I could call someone I love
To stop thinking of myself
Long look in the mirror
Just looks back so blankly
You were right: I can't do this
I'm going crazy, it's gone by me and you can't see
How much I think I'm empty

This song should be an INTJ anthem, it really is what it is like to be an INTJ. The sense of confidence and ecstasy in understanding the universe and being highly competent. But clueless about people.
If we were feelers we would quite likely be depressed, but the excitement and confidence that comes from Ni and Te makes that uncommon.


Alone, twenty millions years from my place.
A slide, on the starlight.
Watch out, a new planet right on my trail!
The space, oh oh it's mine!
Oh oh!

I'm lost, in an infinite night trip.
The sun, could make me blind.
I wish, I could bring a girl to my ship.
And fly, her hand in mine!
Oh oh!

Alone, twenty million years from my place
(Is the dream over?)
The space, oh oh it's mine!

Brings up all kinds of emotions. That's important in a song imo.
