    Yeah, I made a ridiculously long playlist about being trans, instead of doing homework one night. I just thought I'd share with you ladies and gentlemen.

    I Dare You - Shinedown
    Part of Your World - Carly Rae Jepsen
    Everything Has Changed - Taylor Swift ft. Ed Sheeran
    Never Too Late - Three Days Grace
    Fallen - Volbeat
    My Body - Young the Giant
    Wake Me Up - Avicii
    Spirits - The Strumbellas
    The Clincher - Chevelle
    In My Place - Coldplay
    Emotional Drought - Chevelle(They're my favorite band, so they're in here a lot!)
    Broken - Seether
    Animal I Have Become - Three Days Grace
    Bend The Bracket - Chevelle
    Rain - Breaking Benjamin
    Rise Above This - Seether
    Ready To Fall - Rise Against
    Dreams - The Cranberries
    I Don't Care - Apocalyptica ft. Adam Gontier
    Remember Everything - Five Finger Death Punch(probably the best song in this list)
    Pinch Me - Barenaked Ladies
    Unsteady - X Ambassadors
    Firework - Katy Perry
    Don't Speak - No Doubt
    Woman Woman - AWOLNATION(not really sure why, but the chorus makes me feel like a real woman I guess?)
    Jumper - Third Eye Blind
    Swallow The Knife - Story of the Year
    Whisper -Evanessence
    Bitter Sweet Symphony - The Verve
    Dirty Little Secret -The All-American Rejects
    Drones - Rise Against
    First - Cold War Kids
    Learn to Fly - Foo Fighters
    It Ends Tonight - The All-American Rejects
    Times like These - Foo Fighters
    Some Nights - Fun.
    Give Me a Sign - Breaking Benjamin
    Roar - Katy Perry
    Bones - Young Guns
    Second Chance - Shinedown
    In My Blood - Black Stone Cherry
    Skyscraper - Demi Lovato
    Wrong Side of Heaven - Five Finger Death Punch
    Fight Song - Rachel Platten
    Snuff - Slipknot
    Notion - Kings of Leon
    Away from the Sun - 3 Doors Down
    Serenity - Godsmack
    Breathe (2 AM) - Anna Nalick
    Closure - Chevelle
    Awake and Alive - Skillet
    Panic Prone - Chevelle
    Coming Down - Five Finger Death Punch
    Carry On - Fun.

    Some are depressing, some motivational, about being yourself, some probably don't fit, some about depression, and just having dangerous thoughts in your head, about change, fear(The Clincher). There's a few other songs I'm thinking of adding. But if nothing else it's a neat playlist. lol

    Fall to Pieces - Velvet Revolver
    Through Glass - Stone Sour

    Habits(Stay High) - Tove Lo
    Send The Pain Below - Chevelle
    Demons - Imagine Dragons
    State of Grace - Taylor Swift

    Bother - Stone Sour
    Event Horizon - Stitched Up Heart

    Zzyzx Rd. - Stone Sour
    Finally Free - Stitched Up Heart
    Die Trying - Art of Dying

    OK so it's not trans oriented but definitely describes me.

    I'd venture to say, most all of these were not written specifically with trans people and experiences behind being trans in mind.

    I actually have a copy of New Wave somewhere, but I haven't listened to any of their new stuff since they dropped off the face of the earth and Mark became Laura. Good suggestion though.

    I like it.

    I'll add some of these to my list, if I like the suggestion and can easily find it.

    Some I'm adding:

    The Light - Disturbed
    Safest Place - Echosmith
    Make It Stop(September's Children) - Rise Against(as soon as I put the CD on my computer. lol)

    I love this idea, I need to start building a playlist for genderqueer/ftm songs. I don't recognise a lot on your list (maybe I'm too old!) but I suppose many can speak to the trans experience in general?

    You should look them up!(Keep in mind though, a lot of them are hard rock/metal songs. I was trying to put together songs that I feel speak to the trans experience in general. So I think these could work regardless of where you fit.

    For instance "Remember Everything" is a song about not seeing eye to eye with your family, and that causing tension. The lead singer's mother still doesn't approve of him having a career in a heavy metal band.

    "The Clincher" was written about claustrophobia, and describes a general experience with paralyzing fear.

    Corey Taylor on "Snuff:" "This is the slow one. It's another personal one. Again, not naming names, it's about someone who helped me through a lot and I thought she felt the same way that I did and then she really let me down. At the same time, it was good that she did, because it was that final push to me figuring out myself. The lyrics are pretty self-explanatory"(Being let down by people we thought had our backs, sound familiar. :wink: )

    Adam Gontier on "Never Too Late:" "This song is about being in a very dark place, but being able to see a way out." "Feeling like you don't really belong here anymore, and it's about wanting to sort of end everything. But really, this song is about not giving up at all."

    My signature is actually part of the lyrics to "Second Chance."

    Thanks! I'm going to spend some time on Spotify checking out these songs, and it will probably inspire more for my own list. I'll post some here if I find anything interesting.

    Adding to the list:

    Radioactive - Imagine Dragons (it's about depression)

    I am honestly surprised "It's my life" by Bon Jovi isn't in the list somewhere.

    ---------- Post added 12th Dec 2016 at 11:28 PM ----------

    I really feel the lyric "It's my life! and it's now or never" right now applies to taking "the plunge" with starting therapy on Thursday.

    The lyrics are just so perfect for not just us, but in a way for anyone who is LGBT+ or otherwise been told they aren't allowed to be themselves because it's not "normal"

    Not sure what the song is actually about but it always reminds me of this topic...

    That's about orientation, not about trans experiences.

    I'm actually not even certain I'm bi anymore, I'm kinda leaning towards lesbian. :confused:

    ---------- Post added 13th Dec 2016 at 04:15 PM ----------

    Rephrase: I appreciate the suggestion, but I'd like to keep orientation out of this.
