I noticed I tend to listen to sad music when I'm feeling down which isn't really the best idea since it'll only make me feel worse. Time to put away the Joy Division records and listen to something new and uplifting. Post some of your favorite uplifting songs, thank you and remember to keep pushing on no matter what life throws at you :)

Black Rose by Volbeat

I Wish by Stevie Wonder

Three Little Birds by Bob Marley

Live and Die by The Avett Brothers

Weeds or Wildflowers by Parsonsfield

I love music and these are some of the songs I listen to when I’m stressed or sad. I tried to include some odd ball ones most people probably haven’t heard of but honestly you know I had to include Stevie Wonder and Bob Marley they’re like the kings of uplifting music. I specifically listen to Stevie Wonder before dates or after I meet a girl I had a connection with lol.

Hildegard von Bingen.. she was a long ago nun who composed some powerful, spiritual music. A lot of her stuff is on YouTube. It kinda reminds me of the Gregorian chants that got popular for a while in the '9os. peace.

I’ve gone through a lot of musical phases - hip hop, rap, musicals, 80’s and 90’s music - but none matched the feelings that classical gave me. Here are some pieces that always make me happy:
Beethoven Symphony No. 6
Ravel Bolero
Debussy Arabesques
Satie Je te veux
Rachmaninov piano concerto no. 2

Dance music with upbeat lyrics is what I listen to when I want to listen to music that's happy and positive.

And the Ruts, Mink DeVille, New Musik, Japan, and Big Audio Dynamite, although some of these groups are new wave.

I find that listening to music that was played a lot by radio stations during a good time in my life makes me feel happier and more positive.

For example, Will Smith's had a hit that was played a lot back in the summer of 1997 called Men In Black. The summer of 1997 was a good time in my life. So when I hear that song, it reminds me of that pleasant time in my life.

Peter, my favorite Tears For Fears song is Everybody Wants To Rule The World.

Cool song, in my opinion.

Not sure what your beliefs are but, Christian music is #1 on my list of uplifting music. Plus if you have access to YouTube.com you can just do a search for uplifting music. :)

They were just talking about Schumann's 1st Symphony on NPR today. That's pretty uplifting. It's Schumann though so it has some dark moments. Lively ending though.
