Songs of Solace Here is the list of songs recommended by Entertainment Weekly: by Chris Willman ''All My Tears,'' Emmylou Harris Covering a Julie Miller tune, Harris -- who's no stranger to laments about passing on, and those left behind -- offers consolation to survivors with a promise that, in heaven, there won't be a wet eye in the house. Bach's ''Cantata BWV 199: Mein Herze schwimmt im Blut,'' With Dawn Upshaw A world-class soprano, Upshaw takes us through that journey from despair' to redemption in 24 incredibly solace-filled minutes. ''Full Force Gale,'' Van Morrison This jaunty, horn-propelled gospel likens the Lord to a delightful sudden gust -- the kind needed to begin to live again. ''Give a Man a Home,'' The Blind Boys of Alabama Even gospel singers looking toward the next world need a place to hang their hats in this one. They find it in this prayer for rest and peace. ''How I Got Over,'' Aretha Franklin In this clap-happy track from ''Amazing Grace,'' one of the defining gospel albums, Lady Soul enthuses to a live audience about her own bridge over troubled waters. ''If I Should Fall Behind,'' Bruce Springsteen Bruce meant it figuratively, we figure, but his ballad picks up almost unbearable poignance in the wake of so many tales of ordinary heroes who went back to assist the fallen. There could be no more beautiful promise for firefighters, lovers, and other survivors. ''If It Be Your Will,'' Leonard Cohen Jeff Buckley's cover of Cohen's ''Hallelujah'' has become an unofficial anthem for the tragedy's aftermath on VH1 and public radio, but this is a more hopeful prayer from the cynical psalmist: ''Let your mercy spill on all these burning hearts in hell, if it be your will to make us well.'' ''I Won't Back Down,'' Tom Petty Or, as Dan Rather said in an even less fearsome time: courage. ''It's a Wonderful Life,'' The Williams Brothers The Williams duo use their verses to catalog a litany of earthly evils, then, in the chorus, abruptly reverse course and conclude: ''When I look in your eyes/It's a wonderful life.'' When we listen to their euphoric harmonies, we just about believe it. ''Little Bird,'' Annie Lennox Walking city streets ''dark with rage and fear,'' Lennox envies a passing bird for its ability to fly away...then realizes it might not have taken flight without a nice, firm push out of the nest. Having been rudely shoved out of our comfort zone, we can relate. ''Love and Mercy,'' Brian Wilson Wilson puts away childish things and despairs over the world's overwhelming violence and lonesomeness on behalf of everyone who just wasn't made for these times. ''Love Is the Answer,'' Todd Rundgren It was some 20 years ago, in this heavenly slice of Philly-soul-gone-gospel, that Rundgren offered the answer. It might not have been until the atrocities of this year that we really understood the question. ''My Love Will Follow You,'' Buddy Miller Is this the tender promise of a late lover to always watch over his beloved? God, haunting fickle humanity like a ghost? Or just a simple vow of faithfulness between separated sweethearts? Any way you look at it, it's the kind of commitment we all long to be pledged, now more than ever. ''Rhapsody in Blue,'' New York Philharmonic Put this Gershwin masterpiece on as a promise of the time when we'll be able to stroll through a Manhattan as idealized as the one witnessed in Woody Allen's famous montage. ''This World Is Not My Home,'' The Monroe Brothers Bill and Charlie Monroe offer perhaps the definitive take on this country-gospel standard in their 1936 recording, finding plenty of reason to celebrate in the idea that the world we know is just a way station. ''These Are Days,'' 10,000 Maniacs Natalie Merchant's celebration of carpe diem is as outrageously joyful a pop song as any ever written. Is it premature, in these dark times, to listen to a song that says these are the good old days? Maybe, but her ode to joy strikes just the right triumphal tone. ''Treasure of the Broken Land,'' Mark Heard The late singer-songwriter's dream of those who've gone on before him. Rarely has the tenuous wall between life and death inspired such a rousing rocker. ''Walk On,'' U2 ''Beautiful Day'' is an especially powerful look through rose-colored glasses, but for pure, bittersweet inspiration, ''Walk On'' is just the balm for weary soles. ''Wonder of Birds,'' The Innocence Mission Singer Karen Peris, who was ethereal before ethereal was in, makes the best case for flying away this side of, well, ''I'll Fly Away.'' If only we could.
Here is our OWN Boomers International List : 1) "Only Time" - Enya "Angel" - Sarah MacLachlan 2) "Hands" - Jewel "I Hope You Dance" - LeeAnn Rimes 3) "Bridge Over Troubled Waters" - Simon & Garfunkel 4) "Lean On Me" - Bill Withers 5) "Imagine" - John Lennon 6) "Titanic Theme Song" - Celine Dion 7) "Let's The Sunshine - Aquarius" - The Fifth Dimension 8) "What's Goin' On?" - Marvin Gaye 9) "You Got Friends" - The Carpenters - Carole King 10) "What A Wonderful World" - Louis Armstrong

MUSIC

What people say about music:

I love all kind of music, ever since I was young. My taste changed over time but music always remain a truly effective mood altering system. When I was alone, a lonely little scrawny and skinny kid in London, I used to listen to the Brit's classical music (London Phiharmonica ) on my record player late at night. Sometimes, I would run out of electricity and I had to put more coins (10p) in the meter. Can you imagine finding coins and meter in the dark! I have learned to appreciate and enjoy more romantic, upbeat music in the last few years. BUT when I feel the BLUES, I would delve and dig deep into my feeling .. and my sadness, that is when "Whiter Shade of Pale" and "Diamonds and Rust" or the Moody Blues get to dance with my inner soul. Although I like oldies but I also like contemporary music. I never get tired of listening to Kenny G.'s "The Joy Of Life" and "Forever In Love". I would prefer that they are the themes for my comtemporary life. by Jeri


I am in my late 40's and I loved Motown as well as the harmony of the groups back in the 50's. You could understand the words and dance close to the person that you liked - or keep your distance from one that you did not. The music made me feel young, and still does, whenever I hear it. It was a great time because things were simpler. There were drugs, but not as prevalent as it is today. You could go to bars at 18, and drink legally. The music made me feel happy, and reflected my sadness as well. If I was in a relationship and was having problems, the music would sometimes cheer me up because it would tell me that my problems were universal. If the relationship was going well, the music would make me feel that I was lucky - and some of the music would make me feel happy. All in all, the music was simpler than it is today, but then, so was life.
As a young man just back from vietnam i purchased an album " THE TEMPTATIONS IN A MELLOW MOOD'" this had to be one of their best. among the many great songs was " to dream the impossible dream". they sang it with so much soul, and helped me through many sleepless nights. i will always hold The TEMPTATIONS near to my heart.................
