    Default I thought this would make for an interesting journey post...What do you think?

    I am a huge music buff, and I turn to music for a lot of things...it helps me find comfort, understanding, reflection etc. So, I thought maybe this would be a fun thread.

    If you were asked to pick a song that represented how you felt as a person before surgery, and then a song that represented how you felt as a person after surgery, what would those songs be?

    Apparently, you can only insert one video per post, so I will add my after surgery one in the reply.

    Here are mine, let me know yours!

    Before surgery:

    This picture was actually taken 20 days after my surgery, if you click it it will enlarge so you can see it better.

    I can't see the video, because I am on my work computer. I haven't had my surgery yet, so I can only tell you what my pre-surgery song is:

    Mad World: Gary Jules w/Michael Andrews.

    I love that song! And for those who have not had surgery yet, go a head and post your song for before surgery now, and I will keep a special look out for what you guys and girls post in the future. As for you not being able to see my videos: My pre-surgery song was Pompeii by Bastille, and post-surgery song was Roar by Katy Perry. I just thought it would be a fun post the forum members can participate in, and I am curious to see what songs are gonna be posted. Thanks for your reply!

    I love the songs Pompeii and Roar.. They both seem to be applicable to your pre and post surgery times!!! I can't wait till my body is yelling ROAR!!!

    Some other good ones will be:
    Hurt - J.Cash for PreSugery..
    Happy - Pharrell.W for PostSurgery..

    lol

    I figure there are so many that people have related to during their journey, I hope there are a lot of responses to this thread because I would love to see the difference in those that have had surgery from the song the chose before surgery, and the one they chose after. I think it might inspire some newbies that have not have surgery yet to see it. Ya know what I mean?

    For before surgery:

    this isn't so much literally the lyrics, but the overall vibe of the song, if that makes sense.

    I would have to go with Radiohead's Creep before surgery. The overall feel and the lyrics capture how I felt at times. Not that I felt this way all the time, but there were times when I did. Oh, sorry for the language to anyone that is offended.

    I think afterwards at first I thought about Katy Perry's Firework... only I would change the words to Baby, I'm a firework. But I like the roar song too.

    I just went through all the songs. What a great post. This was a great idea. I hope more people post their songs. BTW, love Mad World too. It always reminds me of Donnie Darko.
