    Dream Theater at the moment... their lyrics SEEM sad but when u look again they actually mean a lot more than u first think.

    I never really was much into the uplifting stuff, I have a playlist on my iPod of songs that I listened to when I was feeling down...haven't listened to it in a while now, thankfully...Linkin Park, Eminem...but then I guess there were some uplifting songs too, sort of. "Rain" by Dana Glover, that's a good one...umm, and then there's "I Shall Believe" by Sheryl Crow, which is really...made me cry a good few times. And then I guess there's the cliche, "Everybody Hurts" by REM, too.

    If I'm in a bad mood everyone knows it, cos Tchaivoksky's 1812 overture gets played at full volume :laugh: :laugh: Works a treat:biggrin:

    Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 in D Major is just brilliantly uplifting. I never get tired of hearing it!

    Classic rock like The Doors, Beatles, and classic funk/soul James Brown all have tons of great upbeat tracks. Fat Boy Slim's remixes of old James Brown material on a nice stereo system is so great it's impossible not to feel like dancing.

    Those are a few of my recommendations, but you can find a lot of classic Electronica, Jungle, etc. from the 90s that is great club music, saturated with pure, positive energy.

    One thing that I used to listen to a lot when I was low, was Keane.
    Good band they are :)

    Then again, my music tastes didn't really change that much, I don't think when I was down...

    One thing I *do* love now, is Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1 ...
    ever since I heard it at the concert I loved it, especially when I got to play it last year in the orchestra at school ... exhilerating to play!! :)

    But I don't really make a habit of listening to classical music ;)

    Yeah, cheery and upbeat music can kinda make me feel a bit better, but not always, but even a little better is a plus :wink: :headphone: :wootrock:

    One for you anime fans - Beethoven's 9th.

    "Singing is good, singing brings joy and revitalizes the soul. I think that Song is the greatest achievement of the Lilim culture don't you agree?" - Kaoru

    Personally I think the 7th is better with the 5th limping in a poor third.
