    Yes music can make you happy and incredibly sad. Pink Floyd is my all time fave. band. One of the band members has mental illness and they have several songs that they sing about like Comfortably Numb and Dark Side of the Moon. They have a long version of Dark Side in 1973 that is fantastic. Also like Moody Blues ( that shows my age!) Coldplay, PearlJam, Crash Test Dummies, and Elton John is good.

    I love a wide variety of music and I remember as a young teen, a friend commented that listening to my music was as good as a popular local radio station at the time. I was hugely flattered lol!
    I don’t care for rap music or heavy metal for the most part but I like everything from: Uncle Kracker, Pat Benatar, Linda Ronstadt, Rod Stewart, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Tina Turner, Queen, Foreigner, Elton John, Coldplay, Faith Hill, the soundtracks from Grease, Dirty Dancing, Rent, Godspell etc., gospel and contemporary Christian such as by Natalie Grant, Mandisa, Laura Story. I like Ed Sheeran, Laura Branigan, Heart, Chuck Berry, Indigo Girls, Annie Lennox, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts etc.
    I love how certain songs can remind me of where I was and what I was doing at that time in my life–but as you point out, there are some places you’d rather not go!
