The original post

Posted by Clint W. on 09.11.2006 at 04:30
I had one of the worst feeling days I've had in a long time. Nothing seemed to be going right and I wasn't a big fan of anything exciting. I know, I know, it's the teenage angst. There are much worse situations in the world but it was a pretty bad day. Anyway, I just got out of the shower and I was listening to Bob Marley and like always his music seemed to make all of my troubles go away. There aren't many things that can do that these days. So what music makes you happiest these days?

Smooth, ambient, atmospheric and/or astral stuff usually does it for me, but also grindcore and death metal. It depends on what I'm feeling like exactly. If I'm pissed or bored then ambient or trip-hop helps very well. If I'm more like depressed or otherwise feeling empty/down I usually go for some catchy death metal / grindcore or even some "chaotic" electronic stuff like psytrance.

Carefully selected ambient or any other smooth music works within minutes for me in the first case. After like 5 minutes I feel much better already. Example artists: Bjørn Lynne, Nest, Jääportit, Carbon Based Lifeforms, Massive Attack, Morcheeba, Anna Nalick, Atman, Vangelis...

For the other case artists like these ought to do the job: Nile, Rotten Sound, Amoral, Nasum, To Separate the Flesh From the Bones...

Power/heavy/doom/black/progressive metal, hard rock etc. mostly just makes it worse in both of these cases for me. Also, even though I do like really dark/horror/noisy ambient stuff, I have to stay clear of those in these cases.

Shade Empire is pretty much the artist that does it for me. Particularly their instrumental "Ravine" and the song "Designed for Blood". When I'm angry or depressed, this helps.

If it's not Shade Empire, some death metal helps, particularly bands like Abysmal Torment and Origin. Other than that, I find myself becoming calmer when listening to stuff such as The Doobie Brothers, Boston, Tom Petty, The White Stripes, Jouney, etc...

Nothing makes me relax and forget about my problems better than the most fucking brutal music you can imagine. If I'm not under any stress, then pre-WWII blues and Alcest make me happy, but listening to simple music tends to make me think about my problems though, so generally I like to listen to something distracting.

ergh music never cheers me up when im sad.

if im angry or pissed off i listen to something fast and agressive, if im sad i just lie under a quilt silently, music makes me worse especially when something depressing comes onto my mp3 player i just cry even more

What kind of music that puts me in a good mood? Hm...that can variey greatly. However, I do have some music that i play for specific events.

When I'm about to run a cross-country race, I usually put on Aryeon's day 11: love. I know it sounds extremely cheesy, but it actually makes me very motivated adn in a good mood.

But if you're completly under the ice and/or extremly ashamed of oneself, grindcore is usually the only solution.

also... a friend is showing me some drum n' bass, anyone heard of it. it's really upbeat, uptempo, and fast, makes you want to move and all, hehe. this has cheered me up the last few minutes. try this online radio site that plays drum n' bass 24/7, see if it cheers you up or something!

Folk Metal and folk in general makes me feel happy almost always
IMO also hard rock is good (AC/DC, Van Halen...)

At the moment Fear Factory played at excessive volumes cheers me up. Well, probably doesn't exactly 'cheer' me up but because its so loud it helps distract me from my thoughts.

In general though, the music that makes me happiest is anything from Opeth, Metallica or Ministry. The music brings back lots of good memories which usually helps with taking my mind off whatever is getting me down

I'd say Folk/Celtic music works very good for me, specially Omnia. Their sound is not quite the "happiest tune" but surely gives me strenght and makes me realise something that must be valued (life), and that my problems are nothing, compared to what's going on with the world. Relaxing and quality sound, from a very talented band.
Also try Faun and Lumsk.

Dope song man I like it.

My feel good music, honestly like Stand Up and Shout by Dio, High Roller by White Wizzard, Redemption Song by Bob Marley, those are a few. Oh, and Binge and Grab by Buckethead.



Basically musical happiness, favourite song ever.

Rush and Pink Floyd most of the time do the job for me. They don't really make me happy, they just make me feel at easy and let me calm down.

I've been listening to Fleet Foxes' new album Helplessness Blues a lot recently. I find it pretty comforting. It's acoustic folk type music. It's not overly happy or sad - it's pretty balanced as far as the mood.

Some 80's pop (Erasure, Pet Shop Boys, etc.) has done quite well for cheering me up in the past. Some 80's stuff can be obnoxious though.

Hope you have some better days, my friend.

I approve. Not a huge Fleet Foxes fan myself, but folk or folky pop is probably the best feel-good music out there. Pretty vocal harmonies have like a physical effect on me. I've been playing the new First Aid Kit over and over again, for example. Chamber pop violinist Owen Pallett, Paul Simon (and Simon & Garfunkel, of course), the Finnish pop-punk band PMMP etc. really put me in a good mood.

Nobody melts my heart quite like Regina Spektor, though. Can't feel down when you listen to her, she's way too wonderful for that.
