Post Your Favourite Cancer Anthem ♪♫•*¨*•.¸¸♫♪♪♫

It is our wedding anniversary today :)   Six years ago we wondered if we dare look into the future and this song helped us both through chemo at a scary time.

Nearly everyone has a 'special song' - Feel free to add yours and make this an uplifting playlist for the 'tough days'

Roger Hodgson (ex supertramp) Give Me Love, Give Me Life!

Hugs, G n' J

Lyrics -

GIVE ME LOVE, GIVE ME LIFE

It's feeling like it's time to ring the changes
It's feeling like it's time to be reborn
'Cause here we go again
Proclaiming it's the end
And reaching out for something
To bring it back again
We're living on a good fortune
We're cheating all our friends
So tell me, oh tell me
Now where's it going to end.

I hope it's not too late to see the danger
I'd really like to wake and see the dawn
'Cause here we go again
We're trying to pretend
We're blaming one another
For what is ours to mend
We're fighting for the future
We're ringing out the past
It feels good, it feels good
But is it going to last?

Give me love,
Give me love, give me joy, give me pain
Give me light, give me starting again
Give me hope,
Give me hope, give me sun, give me rain
Get me up, get me dancing again
Give me life,
Give me life, give me high, give me low
Give me truth, give me something to know
Give me time,
Give me time, give me room, give me rope
Give me sign, give me reason to hope

'Cause everything is a turn up, turnaround
And everything is just upside, upside-down
Well, everything is not like you'd like it to be
Everything is a two-bit, two-bit town
And everybody's just out to drag you down
Well nothing is as you'd like it to be

Well everything is a turn up, turnaround
And everything is just upside, upside-down
Well nothing is as you'd like it to be
And everything is a two-bit, two-bit town
And everybody's just out to drag you down
Well nothing is as you'd like it, like it to be
I may not love you, but I can't stop thinking 'bout you

Give me reason to hope

I see just what I want to see
Just what I want to be
I can be anytime, anyplace, anywhere
I go just where I want to go
Just when I want to know
I can go anytime, anyplace, anywhere

Things just ain't what they used to be
Ain't what they ought to be
Ain't what they've got to be, gonna be probably

Things just ain't gonna get to me
Ain't gonna bother me
Ain't gonna worry me, hurry me, let'em be

Give me love,
Give me love, give me joy, give me pain
Give me light, give me starting again
Give me hope,
Give me hope, give me sun, give me rain
Get me up, get me dancing again
Give me life,
Give me life, give me high, give me low
Give me truth, give me something to know
Give me time,
Give me time, give me room, give me rope
Give me sign, give me reason to hope
GIVE ME LIFE

  • Happy by Pharrell Wiilliams was released when I was going through treatment first time around in 2013/4. It was always on the radio in the car when I was going to and from treatment and never failed to lift the spirits!!! 

    Happy Anniversary - here's to many more!! 

    Best wishes

    my somg was a new release when I was diagnosed Nov last year so was played copiously on the radio at the time.

    Rita Ora “Anywhere”

    its very catchy and it would help stop th tears when I was alone in the car ( worst thinking time). I’d sing top volume and dream of being anywhere else. It also made me plan away trips for end of treatment so something to look forward to.

    and the freakiest coincidence was that it played on the radio again whilst I was receiving my last radiotherapy zap!  I did cry then as just felt overwhelmed but all good!

    Have a good weekend all

  • Not sure I have a specific song but one that makes me smile through this cr**py mess and seems fitting is  "get back up again"

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=IFuFm0m2wj0

    The other song which we have been hearing constantly lately is Jess Glynne, which has become my song for my mum.  She always seems to come on when she is with me and is exactly how I feel for her.  My amazing brave strong dad passed away the other day after a very short battle with this horrid disease.  He was only in his early 60s and was so fit and well.  They were married for such a long time, there is just a huge hole we can't fill. It still seems very unfair and am not enjoying 2018 much.  Anyway, I'm rambling!  These words are very fitting at the moment

    m.youtube.com/watch

    When all the tears are rolling down your face
    And it feels like yours was the only heart to break
    When you come back home and all the lights are out, ooh
    And you're getting used to no one else being around
    Oh, oh, I'll be there
    When you need a little love, I got a little love to share
    Yeah, I'm gonna, I'm gonna, I'm gonna come through
    You'll never be alone, I'll be there for you
    I'll be there, I'll be there for you
    I'll be there, I'll be there for you
    Oh, I swear, I got enough love for two, ooh, ooh, ooh
    You'll never be alone, I'll be there for you
    When it's Friday night and the drink don't work the same
    You're alone with yourself and there's no one else to blame
    When you still can't feel the rhythm of your heart
    And you see your spirit fading in the dark
    Oh, oh, I'll be there
    When you need a little love, I got a little love to share
    Yeah, I'm gonna, I'm gonna, I'm gonna come through
    You'll never be alone, I'll be there for you
    I'll be there, I'll be there for you
    I'll be there, I'll be there for you (I'll be there for you)
    Oh, I swear, I got enough love for two, ooh, ooh, ooh
    You'll never be alone, I'll be there for you
    When you're lost down the river bed, I'll be there
    When you're lost in the darkness, I'll be there
    I'll be there when your heart is breaking
    You'll never be alone, I'll be there for you
    I'll be there
    I'll be there, I'll be there for you (I'll be there)
    I'll be there, I'll be there for you (ooh, ooh, I'll be there)
    Oh, I swear, I got enough love for two, ooh, ooh, ooh
    You'll never be alone, I'll be there for you, oh
    I'll be there, I'll be there for you (I'll be there when your tears are falling)
    I'll be there, I'll be there for you (I'll be there, can't you hear me calling?)
    Oh, I swear, I got enough love for two, ooh, ooh, ooh
    (When your heart is breaking)
    You'll never be alone, I'll be there for you, ooh
    I'll be there for you, ooh
    I'll be there for you, ooh
    You'll never be alone, I'll be there for you
    I'll be there for you, ooh
    I'll be there for you, ooh
    You'll never be alone, I'll be there for you

  • Get Back Up Again
    I really hope I can do it
    'Cause they're all depending on me
    I know that I must leave the only home I've ever known
    And brave the dangers of the forest
    Saving them before they're eaten
    I mean, how hard can that be?
    Looking up at a sunny sky, so shiny and blue and there's a butterfly
    Well, isn't that a super fantastic sign
    It's gonna be a fantastic day
    Such marvelousness
    It's gonna bring, got a pocket full of songs that I'm gonna sing
    And I'm ready to take on anything
    Hooray!
    Some super fun surprise around each corner
    Just riding on a rainbow, I'm gonna be okay
    Hey!
    I'm not giving up today
    There's nothing getting in my way
    And if you knock knock me over
    I will get back up again, oh
    If something goes a little wrong
    Well you can go ahead and bring it on
    'Cause if you knock knock me over, I will get back up again
    Whoa oh oh oh oh, get back up again, whoa oh oh oh oh oh
    I'm marching along I got confidence
    I'm cooler than a pack of peppermints
    And I haven't been this excited since
    I can't remember when!
    I'm off on this remarkable adventure
    Just riding on a rainbow
    What if it's all a big mistake
    What if it's more than I can take
    No I can't think that way 'cause I know that
    I'm really, really, really gonna be okay
    Hey!
    I'm not giving up today
    There's nothing getting in my way
    And if you knock knock me over
    I will get back up again, oh
    If something goes a little wrong
    Well you can go ahead and bring it on
    'Cause if you knock knock me over, I will get back up again
    Whoa oh oh oh oh, get back up again, whoa oh oh oh oh oh (I'm okay)
    Whoa oh oh oh oh
    And if you knock knock me over, you knock knock me over
    I will get back up again
