Thread Name: Cathartic Songs: yours?
Subject: RE: Cathartic Songs: yours?
Turning Towrd the Morning, betcha.

Stan Rogers' "Lies" ... When I'm really feeling the song, I have to put anger in my voice to sing the last chorus, as if angry at the mirror, to cover up being near-to-tears over 'loves hers line for line'.

Topic being cathartic songs -- don't have to make you happy when you're sad or v-v, necessarily, just bring forth strong feelings from wherever inside they are buried (or unburied), and provide a discharge/resolution. No?
