Tranquil Blue by the Levellers is the song that soothes my soul and helps calm my angst and anger when the whole SEN battle gets too much.

Don't know if it will have the same effect on others, but it certainly works for me. smile

True colours, prefer the glee version always makes me think of my two girls grin

moosemama Sat 06-Oct-12 21:05:02

I love that song as well Lisa, but I have the Cyndi Lauper version.

I remember singing it to ds1 when he was little.

I'd completely forgotten that until I read your post. smile sad smile

It's got to be 'chasing cars' by snow patrol for me. Just balances out shit LAs and useless NHS interventions..... soppy but slightly angry too grin

coff33pot Sat 06-Oct-12 21:16:54

Yep Chasing Cars is my favourite.

DS fav is Born this Way by Lady Gaga with amazing dance moves grin

appropriatelyemployed Sat 06-Oct-12 21:19:34

Oooh, not tried that one - DS would love that!

moosemama Sat 06-Oct-12 21:22:13

Never heard chasing cars - is it on YouTube at all?

(I am ancient and therefore only know songs of yore! grin)

Strongecoffeeismydrug Sat 06-Oct-12 21:32:04

Chasing cars sums up everything for me,DS sings it to me when we have a snuggle and I have to hold back tears

coff33pot Sat 06-Oct-12 21:35:53

There ya go Moosemama its the 2007 version I think smile I have worn the disc out in the car between that and Whats going on by 4 non blondes smile

appropriatelyemployed Sat 06-Oct-12 21:39:09

Beat me to it! That first bit always sets me off.....we do it all, everything, on our own.......

coff33pot Sat 06-Oct-12 21:40:05

<gulp> I know x

moosemama Sat 06-Oct-12 21:49:39

Ah - now I did know that song. Just didn't know the title or who it was by. blush

It's beautiful and when you listen to it from the perspective we are talking about here it does help to put things into perspective.

Actually, it's really helping me to listen to all these songs this evening, as I've been such a ranty old buzzard over the past couple of days for various reasons.

Thank you. smile

When DS1 was born Dh bought me Kate Bush's album, Aerial. I listened to it all the time whilst looking after him as a baby, and loved the song Bertie, which she wrote for her son.
As DS got older, he became more and more like Bertie as Kate Bush describes him, especially as his AS became more prevalent, and just thinking about the words bring a lump to my throat:

Here comes the sunshine
Here comes that son of mine
Here comes the everything
Here's a song and a song for him

Sweet kisses
Three wishes
Lovely bertie

The most willful
The most beautiful
The most truly fantastic smile
I've ever seen

Sweet kisses
Three wishes
Lovely bertie

You bring me so much joy
And then you bring me
More joy

I shall listen to that one. I love Kate Bush's early stuff.

Strongecoffeeismydrug Sat 06-Oct-12 21:56:36

And when I'm at the point that DS is irritating me i listen to
Through my eyes by Scott James sad
It just gives me a wake up call that DS isn't choosing to be like he is and gives me much more patience from the reserve tank

Buggering iPad doesn't support flash's one drawback!

appropriatelyemployed Sat 06-Oct-12 22:43:37

You can get youtube app on ipad if that helps.

I made a bit of a thing about Cheryl Coles 'I'm gonna fight fight fight fight fight for this love' when I was going through my hell.

The message was clear and I knew it was shite enough to disappear from radio playlists by the time the fight was over.
