    It may sound weird but some days having the ability to listen to a song I recently discovered gives me a reason to keep me going. They are great for grounding as well, if I ever have flashbacks sometimes playing songs im very familiar with help a lot.
    Yes I understand what you mean, it's not weird at all! And if I listen to songs I used to listen to a few years ago, I can have flashbacks- some very good memories come back! I also love listening to songs with very meaningful lyrics

    Thankyou
    Is it there? If it is, this song I found whilst in a hospital and it got me through some good times. It was also a handy song to play to my mum who heard the chorus and was like YAY
    thx

    Another thing about music that I love is when you listen to a song you found a while back, and when you listen again you relive memories and feelings associated with that song. Sometimes its bad but I try to look on the bright side now

    I listen to songs from my childhood which makes me think of happier times

    The Defamation of Strickland Banks album from Plan B is always a good one

    The Fray = How To Save A Life
    Florence and the Machine = Dog Days Are Over
    Ivan Gough ft Feenixpawl and Georgi Kay = In My Mind
    Chase and Status ft Plan B = End Credits
    Birdy = Wings (Nu:Logic Remix)
    Awolnation = Sail

    Also, Azealia Banks = 212 is a brillliant song to listen to when you're angry

    To me it depends what sort of 'dark time it is. If I'm feeling depressed I find that I can pick myself up to a much better mood by listening to punk rock songs, sum41's fat lip especially. If I'm feeling overly angry, I tend to listen to S club 7, american authors, imagine dragons and the summer set. Otherwise, I like to listen to pretty much any sort of music except grime and so generally stick to listening to simple plan and fall out boy when I'm in a normal mood.

    Well, depending on what mood I'm in....

    Tomorrow Is Today - Billy Joel.
    He tried to kill himself at 19 years old and the song is an adaptation of his suicide note, very sad and the lyrics sum those feelings up perfectly.
    Or...
    You're Only Human (Second Wind) - Billy Joel.
    This is a much more upbeat one he wrote 15 years later, trying to help teenagers through depression and suicide.

    Sometimes I have to really let myself feel sad for it to be able to pass, but other times it helps more if I stick a happy song on. Either way I listen to one of these songs, picture 19 year old Billy Joel and what he almost did, and then think how 50 years later he's still here and how much he's achieved.
    Or I watch live concerts in stadiums or arenas. Even if I don't know the artist's songs I always feel a little their euphoria and sense of awe; watching someone in such a surreal situation is a great feeling in itself.

    Just lost everything I've written so let me try and remember...
    I'm pretty overwhelmed with how many people have responded, but it also saddens me how many people go through crap. On the positive side, at least music is here.
    Here are a few classical pieces I love:
    The Cinematic Orchestra- Transformation (3:40 gives me goosebumps everytime!!)
    Hans Zimmer- Time
    Hans Zimmer- Half Remembered Dream
    Alexandre Desplat- Lily's Theme
    Alexandre Desplat- The Imitation Game
    Dustin O'Halloran - Arrivals N2.

    I Love Mumford and Sons too! I know pretty much every songs lyrics.

    I am definitely going to have to listen to these! Yeah, it helps me a lot too to see people who struggled a lot but are still around and doing well.

    Hot Gates- Mumford and Sons, is a brilliant song, i think about depression/suicide. But sort of from a friends point of view, and trying to support them and rally them to put the thought of suicide aside and keep trying and fighting.
