Remembering 9/11 – Songs That Helped The Healing Process [VIDEOS]

Twin Tower Lights
Daniel Berehulak

Today (September 11, 2012) marks 11 years since that tragic day that shook the whole world.  And even with so much time passed,  I can honestly say I’m still shocked about the events of that day, and sadness still overcomes me.  I remember a lot about that fateful day, but one of the things I remember the most, was all of the music I heard during that time. Whether they were tribute songs played on the radio, or songs that I threw in my CD player, these are the songs I remember the most during that horrible time that may have helped the healing process.

Enya ‘Only Time’

I remember this song the most because it was played over and over again. At the time, I worked for a station called KISS FM, and we played it all the time even before 9/11. In fact, I couldn’t stand this song when it did come out, but after 9/11 I connected to this song and will forever associate it with September 11th, 2001.


Styx ‘Show Me The Way’

Once again, this was a song I never really liked – until after 9/11.  Don’t get me wrong, I like Styx, just didn’t really care for this song. But, it was definitely one that impacted several people.


Megadeth ‘Angry Again’

Although I don’t agree with some of Dave Mustaine’s antics, when you pop a Megadeth song in, you can’t help but get a little angry – and that’s one of many emotions that ran through me during the whole process.


Lee Greenwood ‘God Bless the USA’

In my opinion, this song, more than any other song, connected with everybody. Regardless of anyone’s religious belief, this song warmed the hearts of Americans everwhere.


Metallica ‘Seek and Destroy’

As a huge fan of rock and metal, obviously, I turned to the music I could relate to the most. I popped this song in my CD player and thoughts of bombing Iraq flowed freely through my head. Yeah, I was angry at this point. This video has war footage, as well as footage from 9/11.


So, those were just some of the songs I remember the most around 9/11.  What songs do you remember hearing that may have helped the healing process or had an impact on you?
