Recovery Anthems (songs that help you stay sober)


A couple of us were talking about songs that reminded us about sobriety and recovery. What are some songs that speak to you?

One of my favorites is Gavin Degraw's "Everything Will Change"

Here is Gavin on Live From Daryl's House (Daryl Hall). I hope it speaks to someone.

Well, it's a bunch of songs. Dream Theater did one recovery song per album for a while. This is just all those songs one right after the other.

Of course... it's Dream Theater, so each song is 10-15 minutes long

If you want just one, this one is my favorite:

I've listened to them all at some point. I think they are on the list of best recovery songs if you google it for good reasons.
