Ο Bono των U2 είχε πει κάποτε ότι η μουσική μπορεί να αλλάξει τον κόσμο επειδή έχει τη δύναμη να αλλάξει τους ανθρώπους.
Δημοσιογράφοι της Huffington post ζήτησαν από τους αναγνώστες τους να τους στείλουν τους στίχους τραγουδιών που άλλαξαν τη ζωή τους και εξακολουθούν να τους προκαλούν έντονη συγκίνηση.
Ιδού η λίστα των τραγουδιών όπως προέκυψε:
"Landslide" by Fleetwood Mac
Well, I've been afraid of changing
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I'm getting older too
"The Greatest Love of All" by Whitney Houston
I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone's shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I'll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignity
"He Went to Paris" by Jimmy Buffett
Some of it's magic
Some of it's tragic
But I had a good life all the way
"Don't Stop Believin" by Journey
Some will win, some will lose
Some were born to sing the blues
Oh, the movie never ends
It goes on and on and on and on
"Oh! You Pretty Things!" by David Bowie
Look at your children
See their faces in golden rays
Don't kid yourself they belong to you
They're the start of a coming race
"Stairway to Heaven" by Led Zeppelin
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on
And it makes me wonder
"I Am Woman" by Helen Reddy
You can bend but never break me
'Cause it only serves to make me
More determined to achieve my final goal
And I come back even stronger
Not a novice any longer
"Poems, Prayers, and Promises" by John Denver
How sweet it is to love someone, how right it is to care.
How long it's been since yesterday, what about tomorrow
and what about our dreams and all the memories we share?
"Up on the Roof" by James Taylor
When this old world starts a getting me down,
and people are just too much for me to face.
I'll climb way up to the top of the stairs and all my cares just drift right into space.
On the roof, it's peaceful as can be and there the world below don't bother me, no, no.
"Lights" by Journey
So you think you're lonely
Well my friend I'm lonely too
I want to get back to my City by the bay
"You're The Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me" by Gladys Knight and The Pips
Oh, there have been times when times were hard
But always somehow I made it, I made it through
'Cause for every moment that I've spent hurting
There was a moment that I've spent, ah, just loving you, yeah
