  1. When I am feeling down or feeling happy I love to listen to Gospel Music and Country Music. I especially love to listen to those singers that I personally know that have made recordings. I also enjoying listening to the oldies but goodies 94.5 out of Kansas City.

  2. Michael Jackson’s songs always lift my spirit when I’m low; when I’m high, his music makes me soar. The rythmn and the lyrics combine to move me, body and soul. Can’t help “getting down with my bad self now and then!” Learned that from my 24-year-old daughter, the professional dancer.

  3. Olá,é uma resposta difícil, mas vou responder, quando fico triste ou com raiva, eu choro, e ouço o cantor Luciano Pavarotti que adoro, resultado choro mais e vem mais tristesa. Mas depois passa.
    Abraços Mina!!!

  4. I don’t really listen to any special kind of music when I’m sad…
    And hurrah for me, I’ve decided to start participating in Post A Day 2011 πŸ˜€
    Here’s the first of my Post A Day posts: http://wp.me/p18cIY-ac
    I was blogging before too (but not daily), so there is some non-music related topics in it too πŸ™‚

  5. Woah! I haven’t really been keeping up with the Daily Posts because I chose to post daily about things more directly related to my theme, or just about me, but yesterday I posted exactly this without knowing it was the suggested topic for the day…
    Spooky… πŸ˜›

  6. Emmylou Harris. Her voice can make any day better even as she is singing songs of grief and longing. I also find guitar shredding Neil Young music to be a good pick me up.

    When I am happy – world music especially Arab Pop and South American Garage Rock. Plus the Stones and Lady Gaga.
    Go figure.

  7. I think we’ve been here before with what would you take to a desert island but hey ho, my choices are all fairly current ex chart type sounds.

    When I had my Bang & Olufsen shop customers would ask to hear Songbird by Eva Cassidy, although a beautiful tune it always prompted my sales assistant son to mime slashing his wrist. It was that kind of a song.
    Happy days.
