My List:

Fake Plastic Trees by Radiohead- Saw them live when I was about 8. That in itself was life changing. I didn't know anything about them but this song moved me. I can't really describe what I feel when I listen to it, but it is my favorite song of all time.

Fast Car by Tracy Chapman- One of the most raw and moving songs.

Fix You by Coldplay- Something about this song gets me everytime.

Nessun Dorma by Pavarotti- My mom played me classical music as a child and this is the first song I remember listening to, probably because it's so powerful.

Not necessarily changed but it inspired me.

Saosin-They Perch On Stilts

The chorus is "I see a blank notebook page and it's my life. There is nothing I can think to write." That really touched me in high school when I was having to decide what I wanted to do with myself when I graduated.

2Pac - Dear Mama
When I have hard times with my mom, always gotta listen to this track to calm me down and just lay back and just be thankful, that I even have one and that she's there for me... And damn just the other day, she bought me this Black Cross with a Diamond on the middle from Peoples, and I ain't even give her shit...

And for that girl thats always on my homo here but,

Can I live -Jay-z, this song made me grind hard my first semester of college, and at work, and motivated me to buy the car I wanted. this is like a perfect "come up" soundtrack

The one liners in there like "i'd rather die enormous, than live dormant" are really powerful.

^ Man...

Common - The Light

This was my favorite song, best rap love song ever imo. And i cant stand to listen to it. I hate how memories can fuck up a great song.

Final Fantasy X - Besaid Island

Made me believe in God.

ya dillas production on that track was great. really simple and soothing
and ffx made me appreciate the piano

True his music open your ears, and after hearing Dilla, everything else is crap.

you must not listen to very much music

this song actually changed my life..if it werent for this song i wouldnt be going on the path i am in my life right now..i would probably have went through with suicide and i never wouldve been able to get through shit with my ex...this song truly changed my life and i am not kidding..

most of you people arent really looking at what the point songs that changed your entire life..not just good ass songs that you said oh shit i love this and you bop your head to it when you hear it...this song honestly makes me want to cry..

but im an e-thug..and e-thugs dont cry

and this

used to just vibe to that song off of blunts and wish i was dead

adding this song made me want to fuckin tear people up on the mic...definitely inspired me to start writing when i first heard it

hip hop saved my life.

As much as I hate to say it, i really don't think there's any one single song that I can say actually "changed my life". Some got me into things or made me realize certain things but I really don't believe that a single song has changed my life. Albums, yeah. Artists, yeah. But like single songs...nah man

All I do is smoke weed, blow lines, and listen to MF DOOM. And rap.

This song not only changed my life and the type of music I listened to, but I'd pinpoint it as the reason that trance is no longer heard in clubs in the US and house dominates.

Final Fantasy X - Besaid Island

I stopped playing the FF series in the middle of VII, so I never heard that track before. Wow... That is really dope.
