"One" reminds me of 9/11.....and I was playing Achtung Baby alot around that time, too, so I guess the whole album makes me think of 9/11 and days that followed.

Kite as well as many other U2 songs. It reminds me of loss.

Others: right now every song of Bruce Springsteen's The Rising.

One, which I played at 8:47 this morning after a small prayer. Sunday Bloody Sunday, Bullet the Blue Sky, Streets, MLK, and basically all of ATYCLB (especially Walk On, Kite, and Grace).

As for other songs: Fragile by Sting (duh, he wrote it for 9/11), Everyday by DMB, If I Could Change the World by Eric Clapton and Babyface. There are probably others but I can't think of them off hand.

"Fragile" actually wasn't written for 9/11... Sting was just all set to make a webcast on that very day and the reworked version of "Fragile" was the first song in the concert. It was kinda "rededicated," though, considering what had happened just hours earlier.

I hope you don't feel old because I didn't know about that song. I was 16 when it was written (if 10 years is right). I'm not (too) young, just ignorant. Hey, at least I know that Candle in the Wind was originally written for Marilyn Manson.

What? Why are you looking at me like that? ;->

"One," of course, got me through today... I'd posted it here on livejournal a few minutes before quarter of nine, but it wasn't until after the moment of silence, when VH1 began to play the "Smell the Flowers While You Can" version of the video, that I truly understood, truly felt the song. There was a time long ago when I thought I loved a girl; I actually forced myself to cry while thinking of her and playing "With or Without You," which I felt mirrored my sentiments. But, truly, I never cried to a U2 song like I cried to "One" today.

"Walk On" is another great one. I remember back when, at the top and bottom of every hour, MTV would play a World Trade Center montage video with "Walk On" in the background. Simply wonderful.

By other artists: I'm also beginning to get into Bruce Springstein's new album (my fiancée has been a fan of his work all her life).

Billy Joel - New York State Of Mind, can't go wrong with that song. And "Fragile" was written about John Lennon from what I hear. Bruce's new album is great and very emotional

For me, it has to be "Stuck in a Moment" and "Walk On". Having had a family member been involved in an act of terror (the OKC bombing in '95), I know how it feels. You do feel like you want to keep on going, but at the same time, you're stuck in that moment, and you can't get out of it no matter how hard you try. But all in all, ATYCLB is a good album to inspire us all to move past the events of 9/11.
