Username Post: Songs about moving on to better things        (Topic#144943)
07-07-08 06:17 PM - Post#477942    


I'm looking for a song or two or three, I don't care about the count, or genre as long not rap/hip-hop.

The topic I'm searching for is to tell someone stop living on the past and move on, forget the past and move on, future is good .. or something like this.

Only song came to my mind is this :

Thanks for taking the time to read this and much appreciated if you going to help, also I love the community in here you guys got a nice one !

I hope your week heading to a good start.

Hi Unseen, welcome to Songfacts

I'll start with:

Saw things so much clearer
once you... were in my

another one:

PS You Rock My World ~ Eels
maybe a bit too dark in it's theme, but it's definitely one of the best "moving on" songs that I know

I was at a funeral
the day I realised
I wanted to spend my life with you

sitting down on the steps
at the old post office
the flag was flying at half mast

and I was thinkin' 'bout how
everyone is dying
and maybe it's time to live...

Ever since it got stuck in my head some time ago I've been liking this song a lot... first one that came to mind without thinking too hard.

Times Like These -- Foo Fighters

If you want to be a little more blunt

50 Ways to Leave Your Lover -- Paul Simon

And then there's

Stop Crying Your Heart Out -- Oasis
I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky
For I know that the hypnotised never lie

Ummm... how about "You Can't Put Your Arms Round A Memory" - Johnny Thunders?
My grandad gave me some sound advice on his death-bed. "It's worth spending a bit extra for good quality speakers", he told me.

M People - Moving on Up

"'Cos I'm moving on up. You're moving on out.
Movin' on up. Nothing can stop me.
Moving on up. You're moving on out.
Time to break free. Nothing can stop me,
Blue on blue
Heartache on heartache
Blue on blue
Now that we are through.

Present Tense - Pearl Jam

You can spend your time alone
Redigesting past regrets, Oh
Or you can, come to terms and realize
You're the only one who cannot forgive yourself, Oh
Makes much more sense to live in the present tense

One of my favourites off No Code.. I think it fits here
Earthen trail of slimy goo
I smear it on your cheeks like rouge
Eyes of red and lips of blue
It's cold and safe inside of you

Don't Stop
Fleetwood Mac

If you wake up and don't want to smile
If it take just a little while
Open your eyes and look at the day
You'll see things in a different way
Don't stop thinking about tomorrow
Don't stop, it'll soon be here
It'll be, better than before,
Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone
Why not think about times to come
And not about the things that you've done
If your life was bad to you
Just think what tomorrow will do
Don't stop thinking about tomorrow
Don't stop, it'll soon be here
It'll be, better than before,
Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone
All I want is to see you smile
If it takes just a little while
I know you don't believe that it's true
I never meant any harm to you
Don't stop thinking about tomorrow
Don't stop, it'll soon be here
It'll be, better than before,
Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone
Don't you look back
Don't you look back

No more hurting people. Peace.

Does Billy Joel's Moving Out count?

  • Udo Said:

This was the first song that popped into my head.

Perhaps also Elton John's "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road."

Now that you guys brought up Goodbye Yellow Brick Road I thought about Someone Saved My Life Tonight

This song has one of my favourite lines:
And it's one more beer and I don't hear you anymore.

Then there's that "show some backbone" song by Don Henley & Glen Frey, "Get Over It."

I turn on the tube and what do I see
A whole lotta people cryin' "Don't blame me"
They point their crooked little fingers at everybody else
Spend all their time feelin' sorry for themselves
Victim of this, victim of that
Your momma's too thin; your daddy's too fat

Get over it
Get over it
All this whinin' and cryin' and pitchin' a fit
Get over it, get over it

You say you haven't been the same since you had your little crash
But you might feel better if they gave you some cash
The more I think about it, Old Billy was right
Let's kill all the lawyers -- kill 'em tonight
You don't want to work; you want to live like a king
But the big, bad world doesn't owe you a thing

Get over it
Get over it
If you don't want to play, then you might as well split
Get over it, get over it

It's like going to confession every time I hear you speak
You're makin' the most of your losin' streak
Some call it sick, but I call it weak

You drag it around like a ball and chain
You wallow in the guilt; you wallow in the pain
You wave it like a flag, you wear it like a crown
Got your mind in the gutter, bringin' everybody down
Complain about the present and blame it on the past
I'd like to find your inner child and kick its little ass
Then there's that "show a little backbone" song by Henley & Frey, "Get Over It"

Get over it
Get over it
All this bitchin' and moanin' and pitchin'a fit
Get over it, get over it

Get over it
Get over it
It's gotta stop sometime, so why don't you quit
Get over it, get over it

Judging by recent cultural and political events, people still don't get it.
Education can't be confiscated at the border.
