Feel-good songs?
 
With my life going to hell in in a shopping cart pointed downhill at the moment, I've been clinging to a few songs that make me feel good.

No idea why, but the Breakup Song makes me feel better.

As well as Get On The Bus.

I make no secret of still being a huge Earthbound fan 17 years after its release and, while most of the music brings nostalgia and a feeling like there are friends happy to see you as only that game could bring, the bus music just sounds like you're moving. Eager to go somewhere. Making progress. Even if I'm not, for those two minutes, I feel better about myself.

My go to song is Travis Tritt's "Great day to be alive"

I Got Rice cooking in the microwave
Got a three day beard I don't plan to shave
And its a goofy thing but I just gotta say
Hey I'm doing alright.
Yeah I think I'll make me some homemade soup
Feelin' pretty good and that's the truth
It's neither drink nor drug induced
No Im just doin' alright

And it's a great day to be alive
I know the suns still shinin' when I close my eyes
There's some hard times in the neigborhood
But why can't every day be just this good?

It's been 15 years since I left home
Said good luck to every seed I'd sown,
Give it my best and then I left it alone
Ohhh I hope their doin' alright.
Now I look in the mirror and what do I see?
A lone wolf there ... starin' back at me,
Long in the tooth but harmless as can be,
Lord I guess he's doin' alright

And it's a great day to be alive
I know the suns still shinin' when I close my eyes
There's some hard times in the neigborhood
But why can't every day be just this good?

Sometimes its lonely
Sometimes its only me and
The shadows that fill this room,
Sometimes I'm fallin' desperately callin'
Howlin' at the moon

Ahhhwwoooooo! Ahhhwooooooo!

Well I might go get me a new tatoo or
Take my old Harley for a three day cruise
Might even grow me a fu man chu...

Ahhhwwoooooo! Ahhhwooooooo!

And it's a great day to be alive
I know the suns still shinin' when I close my eyes
There's some hard times in the neigborhood
But why can't every day be just this good?

And it's a great day to be alive
I know the sun's still shinin' when I close my eyes
There's some hard times in the neigborhood
But why can't every day be just this good?

Whenever I get real stressed out this song always makes me feel better. It's a real mellow song. Sort of ominous.

Most of the songs that fit the bill dont have lyrics so just have a listen, and they almost all belong to The Seatbelts.

This isnt a feel good one exactly, but I always throw it on when I find a particularly good pilot on IL2 to fight with.

For me it would have to be the whole Bouncing Souls album Maniacal Laughter.
