Whats your Diabetes song?


#1

So I have a few songs that I feel like describe my thoughts on diabetes well and I want to hear yours. One of mine is Mandisa's Stronger. It just fits the way I feel about fighting diabetes day in and day out. Another one is Plumb's Need you Now. I honestly don't think I'd ever connected that one to diabetes related stuff until one night last week when I woke up at 2:30am with a bg of 31. It took 30 mins to get it to 84 and while sitting there Need You Now was in my head.

What are the songs that help you?

Stand, by Rascal Flatts, when I need inspiration. Just about any Simple Plan song (especially Astronaut and Welcome to my Life) when I'm sad or just plain pissed off.

My choice is "Survival" by Muse.

Just listen to the lyrics:

Oh, and Carry On, by Fun.

"Rocky Road to Dublin" by the Dropkick Murphys,travelling, theft, brawling, sort of the life with diabetes. It would probably be useful to come up with some D-themed lyrics though...:

"46&2" by Tool, "Hooker with a P****" too, but the video has quite a few uh, colorful words in large, block-printed letters. Although it does talk about pointing fingers, which is certainly germane to diabetes...

"Ther'l be blue birds over the white cliffs of Dover". It was written by 2 Americans in 1940, when the Nazis were bombing Britain every night. It looked forward to peace, and of course, that came true. I was dx in Dec. 1942, and wasn't particularly aware of the song at that time, but have since realized the parallel to diabetes. We are still waiting for the cure, and the song provides me with the hope that I may still see the cure before I pass on. I'm 80, and hopefully have a few years left. By the way, blue birds are not native to England, so there have never been any at Dover, but I still like the idea.
