Anywhere But Here. It tells the best story and when I really needed it that song pulled me out of a funk. It was inspired by the short story "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge". I had a lot of fun connecting the story to the song.

But I love all of the songs, I'm a fanboy. Lol
:argh:

Pretender. I have many reasons but it speaks volumes to my pessimistic view on life.

White Balloons. I've never felt more connected to a song before in my life. The first time I listened to it I was hooked. I posted about it under appreciate. But long story short, it got me through one of the toughest and happiest times of my life and now it's mine and my daughters favorite. :smile:

It really truly depends on my day. I could never pick just one. I've always loved Cancer. Its my favorite live. Anywhere But Here is great too. I love the lyrics to Connect. White Balloons is tattooed on me... The lyrics to Should've Known Better are a bit too relevant sometimes. I CANT CHOOSE. TOO MUCH PRESSURE.

Nah, its probably Cancer.

I think mine is a tossup between Anywhere But Here and Too Many Words but if I was forced to pick one it would probably be Anywhere But Here.

This is such a hard question but I love it!! Let's see... it would have to be a tie between 'White Balloons' and 'Maybe'.
More specifically, the version of 'Maybe' where there is the cool breathing/blowing wind at the beginning. I know that's oddly specific, but something about that intro just makes me take a deep breath myself and then the music starts and the message hits me just a little harder than the radio edit. It makes the song a lot more powerful for me, and the message in it is really relevant to me right now. This song was one of the first I heard by the Pups (first was 'My World') and it has stuck with me ever since.

As for White Balloons, I'm currently designing a tattoo around it. It's one of those songs that makes your heart try to soar out of your body when you hear it, you know? The Polar Opposite version of it is my all time favorite and I listen to it at least once a day!

Third place tie: What Are You Looking For? and Healing Now :smile:

Anywhere But Here.. Has always been my fav since the first time I heard it. Although Better Waste of Time is competing with it at the moment.

That is a really tough one! Even though I love all of them I would definitely have to say All the Same because that song was what made me fall in love with this band. Every time I listen to it I always feel a sense of relief rush over me whether I'm having a good or bad day! :music:

I haven't posted here because I just couldn't choose....actually I still can't! My World is the song that I first heard and made me a fan, so that's definitely a fav. You're Going Down is a fav....Die To Save You.....Should've Known Better.....There's No Going Back...so many!

Now I know which song is my favorite. Don't Walk Away is truely my fav. I chose this song for a simple reason. It reminds me of my boyfriend and me. So often we were about to give up everything we have built. But every time we had a fight, I had to think about this song and how often you run away from problems instead of talking about it and eliminate them. We both are not people who just give up because it's easier. Rather we seek the confrontation and resolve the problems. To talk about everything is not easy. But to me this man is incredibly important. Therefore, it is worth any exertion. And I know that he feels the same way.

Each song speaks to a different feeling or moment. Decisions! Decisions! White Balloons? Maybe? We're Going Down? Connect? I think I'll go with Riptide for one simple reason . . .

I, I won't justify
The way I live my life
'Cause I'm the one livin' it
Feelin' it, tastin' it
And you're just wasting your time
Trying to throw me a line
When you're the one drowning
I like where I'm at on my back
Floating down in my own riptide
The water is fine


. . . just my fuel for my fire.
