Hi! Since the world is finally ending, I was curious to know what songs you've been listening to as a way to brighten your day, improve your mood, and/or comfort you. I'm not asking for your favorite songs, per se, although there could be some overlap. I'm asking for songs that, no matter the circumstances surrounding you, do your mental health a service.
 
I rarely listen to happy, upbeat music, so when I do, I consider it remarkable. Last night, I put some thought into it and compiled an 80 minute digital mixtape on Spotify of songs that even I find hopeful and enjoyable... tunes that always lift my spirits! I even arranged the damn track order, so it sort of flows from one song to the next. Some of the songs are even in Rock Band, be it RBN or customs, and more will be available as customs in the future (be it the specific song or artist). Hopefully somebody finds something comforting among the selections. My brain constantly associates everything with songs, and I'm trying to pay that forward! Here's a handy link to the playlist, and here are the songs and artists:

 

  1. Guster - Architects & Engineers
  2. The Henry Clay People - End of an Empire
  3. Sam Roberts Band - Where Have All The Good People Gone?
  4. William Elliott Whitmore- Hard Times
  5. Cracker - I See The Light
  6. Noah And The Whale - L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
  7. Ben Folds Five - Underground
  8. Damon Albarn - Mr Tembo
  9. Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros - 40 Day Dream
  10. Gogol Bordello - It IS The Other Side of Rainbow
  11. Roman Candle - Eden Was a Garden
  12. Sam Roberts - Without A Map
  13. White Denim - Let It Feel Good (My Eagles)
  14. Joel Plaskett Emergency - Extraordinary
  15. Dawes - Hey Lover
  16. Arkells - Cynical Bastards
  17. The Fratellis - Acid Jazz Singer
  18. Delta Spirit - People, Turn Around!
  19. Tim Bluhm - Sorta Surviving
  20. Ike Reilly - The War On The Terror And Drugs
  21. The Interrupters - On A Turntable
  22. Boots Electric - Swallowed by the Night 

 

I hope if you're reading this you'll post a song below that contributes to your personal mental well-being, and might do the same for others! (a lot of people responding are apparently not reading this part and just saying what they're listening to in general)

 

P.S. I'm gonna try to release two upbeat Mowgli's songs soon, San Francisco and I'm Good, if anybody wants to contribute drums!

I'm listening to the entire discography an obscure hair metal band called Skull, featuring Bob Kulick.

 

Said discography consists of two albums, one released in the early '90s and another released in 2018 with a bunch of songs that didn't make the cut.

Most likely Rush - Natural Science, The Camera Eye, New World Man, Far Cry, Hemispheres, The Anarchist, A Farewell to Kings, Cygnus X-1, 2112 ... other than that Stockhausen's Michaels Reise.

I've been hitting 70/80's classic/hard rock and heavy metal. I think there's just an unique vibe to them not found in any other decades or genre.

Is it even necessary for me to say it's Deftones?

As you're, like, the only person who followed the original post's request and put some thought into placing all your bets on one song, I gave this a very close listen and it has my stamp of approval. I'm glad it does you good! Nice to see it in the database, as well! Thanks for responding :)

Well, it was more of a joke than a sincere response. "4th of July" is one of the most apocalyptic songs I've ever heard, so if I actually did listen to it over and over again, I'd probably lose my mind...lol. It is a fantastic song though.

I don't know if I've ever heard this, but I can totally understand why you dig it! Oddly (or not), I can also totally see it being used by Quentin Tarantino in one of his movies as awful and criminal things happen in a three-minute montage...

 

That video is... awesome. Nice to see you and Spindoctor charted it, too!

I'm listening to normal fare, and music that I've gotten over the past few months, as if nothing's really changed.

Show tunes, show tunes, show tunes. Mostly centering around Beetlejuice and Groundhog Day. The song "Hope" can be rather uplifting if you ignore the context.
