Songs that make you happier or that comfort you thread

by kb103

doubt this post will get much attention but the goal here is to post some music that you find comforting or similar feelings, post as many songs as you’d like 🙂 (put song first then artist if possible)

mine would be:
the end is where we begin – thousand foot krutch
grey – good boy daisy
backbone – there for tomorrow
how to burn one night – season to attack
set me on fire – flyleaf

and that’s all I can get in before beginning to feel that I’ve already launched some very obscure and hard to find music, and this is the popular stuff, we didn’t even get INTO most show tunes, big band/swing, funk & soul, and I kept to not covering multiple artists doing the same song or sequel songs because if I had done them it would have easily taken me another five hours.

It also occurs to me that the premise is supposed to be that these help. They may or may not. They accurately reflect my philosophy and gut feelings, but only if you remember that I am a very silly and esoteric person; your immediate reaction is probably different than mine.

Blue Danube Waltz – Johann Strauss.
Let’s Go Dancing – Drivin’ n Cryin’

The former was used in 2001: A Space Odyssey, which I first saw at age 5. The movie is my favorite and the waltz fills me with hope. The latter is a song from the ’80’s that brings memories of a special night with an interesting lady.

in terms of classical piano i definately prefer Chopin myself

darkwillow 6/9/2021 - 4:18 pm

I didnt include chopin because I wanted a small list and I didnt think he really fit this post. For “music that makes you happier or comforts you”, I wanted to list more upbeat and happy feeling pieces. Chopin is mostly known for his minor key pieces and, from nocturnes to scherzos, they are emotional rides.

If there is any piece I would include on this list of his, it would be etude op.10 no.3
