  1. What songs give you a hopeful feeling? Maybe just that pick-me-up you need, or even something that gives you a positive outlook in general. Share your songs and reasons why.

  2. The song 'Brave' by Sara Bareilles really gives me a pick me up. I'm not really articulate in real life, and I'm the kind of person who runs from conflicts as well as just take crap from people, staying quiet and just letting things fester inside.

    Something like that happened a few months ago, and then coincidentally I just randomly clicked on this song. I had never heard it before. When I did though, I felt like someone was singing it to me. So, I was brave, at least that time anyway, and I stood up for myself.

  3. This.

    Also Let it Go.

  4. 'Battle Scars' by Paradise Fears, I love the lyrics.
  5. This is normally what I go to when I want to make myself feel better. The song and the video together are just perfect, because that anime was beautiful to me.

    And some other songs:
    All My Best Friends are Metalheads - Less Than Jake
    Let's Kick it Up - Paul Gordon
    Ordinary Day- Great Big Sea
    Pretty much anything by Great Big Sea. They have such a fun time with their music that it is hard not to feel positive when listening to them.
    Like..how could someone not feel happy listening to this?
  6. Viva la Vida by Coldplay, because the lyrics are so amazing, IMO. Love the Violins in the background:

    And the Interstellar Main theme, because Interstellar was an amazing film, and this just makes me think about the future of humanity:

  7. This song makes me happy. Not sure why, but I love it.

    Also this one.
  8. This is a lovely happy song. 8D


  9. This song just makes me wanna get up and dance! ^_^ Or slay angels and devils!

    This reminds me of my tween years so it's very nostalgic to me :)

    Music from any Sonic game cheers me up :)
  10. For many people, music is everything - all the major events in my life, I have music I can relate to. Whether it be tragedy, love, friendship, loss, or introspection, there is a song / band for everything haha.

    Lately, my "hopeful" song is The Light by Disturbed.

    Depression is always a darkness looming at the corner of my mind, and this song just... It really, really gets me.

    Like an unsung melody
    The truth is waiting there for you to find it
    It's not a blight, but a remedy,
    A clear reminder of how it began
    Deep inside your memory
    Turned away as you struggled to find it
    You heard the call as you walked away
    A voice of calm from within the silence
    And for what seemed an eternity
    You wait and hoping it would call out again
    You heard the shadow beckoning
    Then your fears seemed to keep you blinded
    You held your guard as you walked away

    When you think all is forsaken,
    Listen to me now
    You need never feel broken again
    Sometimes darkness can show you the light

    An unforgivable tragedy
    The answer isn't where you think you'd find it
    Prepare yourself for the reckoning
    For when your world seems to crumble again
    Don't be afraid, don't turn away
    You're the one who can redefine it
    Don't let hope become a memory
    Let the shadow permeate your mind and
    Reveal the thoughts that were tucked away
    So that the door can be opened again
    Within your darkest memories
    Lies the answer if you dare to find it
    Don't let hope become a memory

    When you think all is forsaken,
    Listen to me now
    You need never feel broken again
    Sometimes darkness can show you the light

    Sickening, weakening
    Don't let another somber pariah consume your soul
    You need strengthening, toughening
    It takes an inner dark to rekindle the fire burning in you
    Ignite the fire within you

    When you think all is forsaken,
    Listen to me now
    You need never feel broken again
    Sometimes darkness can show you the light

    Don't ignore, listen to me now
    You need never feel broken again
    Sometimes darkness
    Can show you the light

  11. (this one is my secret weapon against depression. the original and other remixes vary wildly in terms of emotion impressions. this one is by far takes the happiest of self-acceptance. it's about accepting the absurdity of life with a smile on your face.)

    (Gala embodies the beautiful. It isn't blind optimism. She exposes the truth, and compels to action.)

    (wordless. this is the hope and feeling of triumph when you remain at the center, weathered by experience but never broken.)
  12. Bad mood? Nah bro, not me
  13. I absolutely love this song ^_^ I think the lyrics explain it all.

  14. Not sure if this really qualifies, but this kickass instrumental by Satch comes to mind. It's like a dream in musical form and always sets my mood right.

  15. Edit: Had to post and run so now I can get to the reasons. x'D

    Its my prime anti-depression song. The lyrics are very empowering.


    The pacing is just tons of fun to my brain.


    Another empowering song that brings a smile to my face when I think about the official video.


    I learned of this song in my early high school days so its all sorts of happy nostalgia about letting things go.


    Its Fight Song. Everyone and their cat probably has heard this by now. lol


    Lean On - Major Lazer & DJ Snake ft MØ Lyrics
    This song was really popular but I didn't really pay attention to it until the Youtube Rewind video came out. Then I became inspired and I use it as inspiration for writing. :)

  16. Arrival to Earth -Steve Jablonsky

    This just, it gets me to feel like there's a chance.

    Jump -Two Steps From Hell

    This is the fucking song that will be playing at the end of my life, when me and @Dervish bust down the gates of Hell, guns blazing, cutting through legions of demons and dethroning Satan himself.

    And just a goofy little song that has indeed prevented a suicide attempt a few years ago.
