In response to kdt26417's Rush song...I can't imagine the depths of internal struggle a person who was raised Mormon might feel in wanting to live a polyamorous life, or what any person might feel when living a life that doesn't feel authentic to them....I can see why that song captivated you, especially, a Wordist such as yourself

Songs about internal struggles pull at my heart. I feel horrible for any person who's raised to feel like their completely normal, natural thoughts/desires are somehow *wrong*

I am going to make a playlist of all these ^.^ each is so interesting and I like all of them.

Now this next song is a bit hurtful, it's how I felt for the longest time for my best friend. We are still friends but went through a period where we really hurt each other a lot. This song pretty much was how I saw her at the time.

It does have a slow start but I always really felt the lyrics.

The poly part of my life actually kicked in several years after I got my name removed from the roles of the church. As it happens there are many things besides poly that the church will punish a misfit like me for.

The Rush song made me realize I was gambling my whole life -- the only life I know for sure I have -- on the church's unproven promises. I was "betting my life." When I looked at it that way, I realized it was time for me to start betting my life on stuff that made sense to me. Not on what "made sense" to the church.

If any are curious about what's involved in leaving the Mormon church, visit the following two posts:
And just to keep us on-topic, let me reference an Alan Parsons Project instrumental song. APP is the master of instrumental songs. This one is called "Pipeline."

Thumbs up

This is exactly what I'd hoped for in this post.....hearing music I never would have found on my own.....which leads to MORE newtome music.

Kinda funny side note. My husband, SuperDave924, plays the guitar and builds amps. *Just* a hobby, but anyway.....last night, he was playing and I went outside to sit on our porch to listen to some music in peace and quiet.... I was listening to the Misfits Thanks to ktd's "misfit" comments.

This led me to learning that Danzig was in The Misfits. Did. Not. Know that.

Anyway, random, but...

Default Another great vibe...

Here's another recent favorite of mine. The music has a great vibe, but the story is pretty grim.

Morcheeba - Blood Like Lemonade

Thanks to everyone for sharing.

How about something a little more serious.

This always struck me as a great non monogamous, open relationship/poly whatever you might be, song.
