Basically any song that reminds you of your eating disorder. The song doesn't have to specifically be about an eating disorder. You can also write down the specific lyrics that make you relate to it. 

 

Personally, mine is The Most Important Part Of Your Body by The Paper Chase. 

 

Lyrics: 

 

"Gropin', gangly, unweave at your sleeve, fit your pasty face

And keep banging that fork on that plate, keep spitting down my spiral staircase
Your neckline is all mine, your jaw line, your lifeline has shortened some
And it's all mine, and it's all mine, good God almighty, look what you've done"

 

"The mind knows what the mouth wants"

 

"The most important part of your body is the one that currently hurts"

This one reminds me of my LW (aka hell) as I listened to it at my ~worst~

 

depending on my mood, it can really really make me melancholy because flashbacks

Heart Shaped Box by Nirvana makes me think of my ED because I interpret the lyrics being about being dependent on someone or something and not wanting to be but you are anyway because you have emotional trauma. I can't listen to Heart Shaped Box too often because that lonely, trapped feeling can get overwhelming and it takes me back to a dark, lonely time in my life.

I absolutely love this song and Nirvana. Now I can have an entirely new interpretation of it.

I also like Sonic Youth, as far as the other two songs go I'll check them out. So far I really like Death of Me by The Ramones.

dunno why but always the outsider by a perfect circle. think i just heard it at the right time in my life.
not about ED, but about addiction from the perspective of someone who doesn't get it. makes me think of the way I sometimes talk to myself tbh.
lyrics like "lying through your teeth again / suicidal imbecile / think about it, you're pounding on a fault line" etc.

this song reminds me of my demon days, my lowest weight, my lowest self esteem

 

it transports me to the days where all I did was restrict, crying myself to sleep in hopes of a better, thinner tomorrow

 

only listen to it if you really want to be triggered

So many. I could make a whole playlist really, but i'll just put this one

 

 

At Least I'm Not As Sad (As I Used To Be)~ by FUN.

 

 

the lyrics that hit home the most:

 

"C'mon, can you count all the notches in your belt?
I'd rather not, let's just say I'm starving myself.
Baby, put your name down on a piece of paper,
I don't want no savior baby, I just wanna have a good time
Oh, oh, At least I'm not as sad as I used to be"
 
Plus these lyrics here are so depressingly accurate and so fucking funny cos it's true:
"So I left, That is it. That's my life, nothing is sacred.
I don't keep friends, I keep acquainted, I'm not a prophet, But I'm here to profit.
That's all, I'm gone! That's my life, nothing is sacred.
I don't fall in love, I just fake it.

I don't fall in love. I don't fall in love"
