I know we have a lot of music fans here.  I am putting together an Apple Music playlist for chemo and looking for song suggestions (fighting songs or soothing songs).  Any suggestions?

Hi Mary Beth,

sorry that such a list is needed.

the first song on the list is one of my favorite bands.  It’s not a very long list as I only gave you stuff I actually like. 

Foo Fighters – “Times Like These

Simon & Garfunkel – “The Boxer

Bob Marley – “Redemption Song

Eye of  The Tiger’ by Survivor

We are the Champions – Queen

Girl on Fire – Alicia Keys

I’m Still Standing – Elton John

Don’t Stop Believin’ – Journey

However @Mary Bethif a list of bands is not really as helpful as songs, let me know and I will name a song from each band to make your playlist easier to create.

@Kylie

You are so sweet!  I added all the songs from your list that were song & artist.

 

I haven’t looked at the suggested artists/bands yet so if you give me a specific song from those artists/bands that would be very helpful!

 

I am glad I did this because now I am getting VERY excited to listen to this list next Monday during my first chemo day!

 

Thank you my friend!

Thank you everyone  for your well wishes.  I appreciate it very much.

 

Isn’t it just amazing that many of the recommended songs in the playlist have been recommended by CI users?!  I am so happy that many of us enjoy music with our CIs!  A very special gift indeed.

Wishing you all the best for the chemo, @Mary Beth!

I do listen to music a fair bit, but last time I shared my Spotify playlist in a CI community it wasn't well liked by the fellow CI users. 😅

From the top of my head I can recommend two songs that are about hope and going through things, maybe you will like them:

Rie Fu - Life is Like a Boat - half of the song is in Japanese, but there are translations in the internet and the artist has a nice, soothing voice.

Kristen Bell - The Next Right Thing - it's from Frozen II, my favourite song from that movie.
