Sobriety songs


Hey everyone,

I've had a few songs banging around in my head for the past few weeks, and am wondering if anyone else has songs they've listened to a lot during their early sobriety? I am really into anything with an acoustic guitar lately ... Here are my three:

YouTube - Kate Nash - Foundations Official Music Video (Kate Nash, Foundations)

YouTube - Elliott Smith - Between The Bars (Elliott Smith, Between the Bars)

YouTube - Indigo Girls w/ Brandi Carlile - KID FEARS - Little Rock (Indigo Girls/Brandi Carlise, Kid Fears)

PL

I'm an old f*rt with a penchance for loud rock, so my kids and I turn it up way too loud in the car. Not exactly recovery-related songs, but they sure wake me up!

YouTube - Skillet - "Monster" (and I just learned they're a Christian band. Wow!)

YouTube - 300 Music Video (Breaking Benjamin - Blow Me Away)

YouTube - Shinedown - If you only knew - W/ Lyrics

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Snow (Hey Oh)

When will I know that I really can't go
To the well once more time to decide on

When it's killing me
When will I really see
All that I need to look inside

Come to believe that I better not leave
Before I get my chance to ride

Skillet isn't a christian band so to say, they are christians in a band. They don't sing about God or preach in their songs. I heard them talking about that on XM.
