    Music with lyrics that speak to your journey

    Hi All
    I have been listening to music as part of my self-care routine and wondered if you had a favourite song that spoke to you and helped cheer you up or provided encouragement when things got tough?
    I have been listening to Audioslave?s ?Be yourself? - which has the repeated lyric / chorus that ?To be yourself is all that you can do...?
    There is also s song containing some dramatic piano parts by the Canadian singer / songwriter Chantal Kraviazuk ( might have messed up the spelling) - ?This is the way God made me?
    Kind of obvious, I know...
    Anyway, just wondered about others favourite songs for inspiration and affirmation?
    Thanks,
    Jenn

    Daphne - Change (Fathers of Sound Sunset Vocal Mix)
    Has the repeated refrains "Change, you can change your mind; you can walk away; You can change your mind, you don't have to stay" and "Change, you can change".

    Eddie and the Hot Rods - Do Anything You Wanna Do
    "Why don't you ask them what they expect from you?; Why don't you tell them what you are gonna do?; Do anything you wanna do".

    The Wedding Present - My Favourite Dress
    When you can work out what Gedge is singing about the song has nothing to do with our situation but it has the line "It was my favourite dress" which reminds me of my one and only Purge.

    Listening to La Villa Strangiato for inspiration and the ease of putting on make up while singing along with the lyrics.

    I write and record music as a hobby using four guitars, a bass, 24 track recorder, drum machine, and plenty of effects. My music is rock with distortion and fuzz along the lines of AC/DC, ZZ Top with a touch of Motorhead influence.

    I have written and recorded several songs about my crossdressing. One of them, "Voice in the Attic" is about finding my late step mothers clothes in the attic. Lyrics start out with "the voice in the attic is calling his name, if he goes up there he won't be the same, caught in a web, he can't get away, she follows him everywhere, because she wants him to stay".

    Either I am listening to music trying to come up with song ideas and riffs or I'm working on one of my own ideas. I do that more than I listen to other people's music but I do try to spend at least an hour each evening listening to other people's music.

    Pink Fairies -

    "I Wish I Was A Girl" from the Kings of Oblivion album

    Although "Do It" from the Never Neverland album might be more suitable

    Natasha Bedingfield’ Pocketful of Sunshine didn’t leave my car CD player for my first few years as Josie. I love the title song and “Freckles.” “A face without freckles is like a sky without the stars. Why waste one second not loving who you are?”

    I love the soundtrack to Josie and the Pussy cats. It has a lot of fun girly pop.

    “Rebel Rebel” by David Bowie. “You’ve got your mother in a whirl. She can’t tell if you’re a boy or a girl.”

    “Who Says” by Selena Gomez
    “You have every right to a beautiful life. ... I’m no beauty queen. I’m just beautiful me.”

    “Roar” by Katy Perry
    “Wide Awake” by Katy Perry

    “Skyscraper” by Demi Lovato

    “Perfect” AKA “****in’ Perfect” by Pink
    (A great self-esteem song)

    “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift
    Hugs and Kisses,
    Josie

    My femme side is not the rocker my male side is. En femme I like Enya?s ?May It Be? with its spirit of ?Believe and you will find your way.? I also like ?Let It Go? from Frozen. It starts from ?Kingdom of isolation and it looks like I?m the queen.? And finishes with ?Here I stand, and here I?ll stay?,

    Oh so many but hers a few that come to mind. 🥰

    Shakira - She Wolf

    ? There's a she-wolf in the closet
    Open up and set it free (Ah-ooh)
    There's a she-wolf in your closet
    Let it out so it can breathe?

    Selena Gomez - Good For You

    ? I'm on my marquise diamonds
    I'm a marquise diamond
    Could even make that Tiffany jealous?

    Spice Girls - Do It

    ? Come on and do it
    Don't care how you look, it's just how you feel
    Come on and do it
    You've gotta make it real
    Come on and do it
    It's time to free what's in your soul
    You've got to get it right, this time
    Come on, freak out lose control?

    Christina Aguilera - Glam

    ? Paint your face like a movie queen
    A naughty dream or a fantasy
    Anything goes, gotta be the scene
    Create your look, out a fashion book
    Ready, set, now go
    Let's get glam, don't let the clothes wear you
    Let's get glam, it's all in how you move
    Let's get glam, don't let the clothes wear you
    Let's get glam, it's all in attitude
    Now snap, now snap
    Here we go, blush on, lashes long, mascara strong (strong, strong)
    Lips, eyes, cheeks, face, give it style grace (grace)
    Better be ready for your photo op
    Step in the light for your perfect close up
    Be superficial it's your one shot
    Unleash the diva, deep inside?

    Shiny Toy Guns - Turn to Real Life

    ? Makes me feel like
    A girl in a fantasy
    Turned to real life
    I'm a believer
    For the first time
    I can be beautiful
    A girl in a fantasy
    Turned to real life?

    Goldfrap, Annabel:

    When you dream you only dream your Annabel.
    All the secrets there inside you Annabel.

    Bound beneath an emerald sky sing Annabel.
    Nothing that they did will stop you Annabel.

    Land of the lines, tangled there in porcelain.
    Under the stars you'll begin.

    When you dream you only dream your Annabel.
    Sleep reminds you takes you there, oh Annabel.

    Gentle whisper, endless winters, Annabel.
    Why they could have let you be both Annabel.

    Land of the lines, of the years below still lies.
    You are the truth they denied.

    Run like the sea, tangled there in porcelain.
    Under the stars you begin.
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh ah
    (Only a boy under that)
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh ah
    (Only a boy da da da)

    Kate Bush's Running Up That Hill has a section that hits the trans part of my mind -

    And if I only could
    I'd make a deal with God
    And I'd get him to swap our places

    Wildfire by Skylark, a few lines from the song.

    She's faced the hardest times you could imagine
    And many times her eyes fought back the tears
    And when her youthful world was about to fall in
    Each time her slender shoulders bore the weight of all her fears
    And a sorrow no one hears
    Still rings in midnight silence in her ears

    Let her cry, for she's a lady (She's a lady)
    Let her dream, for she's a child (Child)
    Let the rain fall down upon her
    She's a free and gentle flower growing wild
    Hiding in my room, safe within my womb.
    I touch no one and no one touches me.-S&G

    Years ago, while contemplating my absurd and pathetic existence as a crossdresser dreaming of being able to pass and wander out from the closet, I was listening to some old rock records and this song by the Velvet Underground jumped out and seemed to express my situation almost perfectly.

    All Tomorrow's Parties (Lou Reed)

    And what costume shall the poor girl wear
    To all tomorrow's parties?
    A hand-me-down dress from who knows where
    To all tomorrow's parties
    And where will she go and what shall she do
    When midnight comes around
    She'll turn once more to Sunday's clown
    And cry behind the door

    And what costume shall the poor girl wear
    To all tomorrow's parties?
    Why silks and linens of yesterday's gowns
    To all tomorrow's parties
    And what will she do with Thursday's rags
    When Monday comes around?
    She'll turn once more to Sunday's clown
    And cry behind the door

    And what costume shall the poor girl wear
    To all tomorrow's parties?
    For Thursday's child is Sunday's clown
    For whom none will go mourning
    A blackened shroud, a hand-me-down gown
    Of rags and silks, a costume
    Fit for one who sits and cries
    For all tomorrow's parties

    I've recently came across this song and it had amazing lyrics. It really speaks to me (and probably a lot of us)

    Parabol/Parabola by Tool

    “This body, this body holding me
    Be my reminder here that I am not alone in...
    This body, this body holding me
    Feeling eternal, this pain is an illusion
    Alive!”
    I am not a woman nor am I a man... I am an enby. Hi, I am Wren.

    What really speaks to me is the chorus from Isis by the Goo Goo Dolls.
    In search of muliebrity

    A number of songs by Todrick Hall on the visual albums "Straight Outta Oz" and "Forbidden".

    Little boys don't cry, little boys aren't shy
    Little boys are tough, they do stuff that little girls don't try
    Little boys don't dance, little boys wear pants,
    Little boys are bold, you've been told you don't hold little boys hands…

    If being a crossdresser obligates me to listen to pop music I would have to seriously consider purging. My last three concerts were my son-in-laws hard rock band, Queensryche and Dream Theater. No pop or country for me. LOL

    Here come Dick, he's wearing a skirt
    Here comes Jane, you know she's sporting a chain
    Same hair, revolution
    Same build, evolution
    Tomorrow who's gonna fuss
    And they love each other so
    Androgynous
    Closer than you know, love each other so
    Androgynous
    I am a vessel of the goddess. Let me express my calling to a feminine life through nurturing love and relatedness.
