Oops almost hijacked a thread there. Sorry.
Some of my favorite artists are Dave Matthews Band, Train, Matchbox Twenty, Evan's Blue.
But the song I like the best when I am down is Granny by DMB. I also like to listen to Unwell by Matchbox Twenty too. These two keep my grounded.
An old one that I like is the Pina Colada song by that Rupert guy.
It was interesting reading all of your responses. Really neat how different we all are but yet similar.
When I'm down = "Love Hurts" by REM
When I'm manic = "Welcome to the jungle" by Guns N Roses
When I'm at my best = Can't think of one particular song but I'll listen to a variety of music; Classic rock, Old School Motown, and Standards like, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Tony Bennet, Glenn Miller Band and oh I like Natile Merchant and Pearl Jam too.
