    This song always does it for me, despite the fact that I only spent eight years of my life living in the country.

    My dad LOVES Johnny Cash. All caps because that's how much he loved Johnny. He'd pick up the broom and pretend he was playing the guitar, and roared along for "MY NAME IS SUE! HOW DO YOU DO!!?"

    Fleetwood Mac's "Hold me" is a song like that. I first heard it when I was dating my high school girlfriend, and I really liked the song.

    Then, I shipped off to boot camp, and my reality changed forever. But, while I was in boot camp, a really cool thing happened. During Work Week, I was assigned to the galley for cleanup and dish duty. And, every afternoon, it seemed like it always happened just as I had time to stop for a break, that song would come on, and I wouldn't be homesick or wondering what I'd just done to myself. I was able to lose myself in the song for a bit, and then the rest of my day was just a bit brighter from having listened to the song. Yeah, it's one of my main comfort songs.
