Recovery Playlist

I’m not doing much running these days, but I am doing a lot of physical therapy. Running is more fun, obviously, but the PT has to happen to get back to running. So a few weeks ago, I asked my friends at the Sub-30 FaceBook group to give me some suggestions for music. I said I was particularly interested in songs that had helped people get through a recovery process. Here’s the list of the suggestions I got. I know some of the stories behind these songs, but I’d love to hear more. How did music inspire you to get through a rough patch? Is there a song you’d like to add? Share your song’s story if you want to.
