Sometimes when I'm down, I look to music as a way to recover. Whether it's music for empathy, music for reminding me of what to focus on, music to help me cry and have a release of built up emotions, or music that sparks joy.
I'm curious to know what songs other people go for when they want to feel good. What's a song that you first think of when you want to feel positive and uplifted?
For me, this is a song that always makes me feel like I have a smile on the inside. I'm not sure why, but it really lifts my spirits when I listen to it.
Please share some songs with me, I'd love to hear them!
These are songs that encourage me, I've typed some of the lyrics from each song
When I feel afraid:
Fear - by Blue October "Today, I don't have to fall apart, I don't have to let the damage consume me, my shadows see through me"
When I feel pitiful and need a kick in the ass:
The sound of madness - by Shinedown "I created the sound of madness, wrote the book on pain, somehow I'm still here to explain, that the darkest hour never comes in the night, you can sleep with a gun, but when are you going to wake up and fight (for yourself)?"
When I need hope that things will get better:
The Light - by Disturbed
"You need never feel broken again, sometimes darkness can show you the light"
I don't know what it is about Nine In the Afternoon by Panic At the Disco that makes me so happy for some reason haha. It makes no sense, but hey, works for me
So that's my happy song! Has been ever since it came out.
