So at this time it’s been storming for over 3 hours now thus keeping me awake in the process. I feel like I may have a slight Pluviophobia. And my nerves are keeping me awake. So I want to ask: What song(s) either calms YOU down or cheers YOU up?
NOTE: This question isn’t just for fears/phobias. This question is for other situations as well (sadness, rage, boredom, brokenheartedness, stress, etc)
TO CLARIFY: “Pluviophobia” is a fear (or a phobia) of weather relating to rain which includes: storms, rain, wind, thunder, lightning, etc.

For me I would have to go with Adele or Cher Lloyd or pink I know how cliche is that that’s just for starters I have so many others that is just so hard to name them all and take them all off the top of your head

I have 3 playlists on my phone that I use for “relaxing music”. Basically ballads, soft rock , slow jazz, plus instrumentals with flute and piano. And yes, I still have “heaps” on casestte and the means to play them.
Artists such as Carole King, Linda Rondstadt, Diana Krall, Judith Durham, Roberta Flack etc etc are my go to females. With males (yes I’m an oldie) Tony Bennett, Ronan Keating, Don McLean, etc.
Instrumentals James Galway on flute and almost anything by that the vastly underrated 90’s and early 00″s Canadian singer /songwriter Richard Samuels.OK he’s still around, but not as popular as he once was.
Do any other CDH “Canuks” remember Richard?? I “knew someone” very well, “who knew Richard” and I got to meet him and see him perform
CHEER UP MUSIC
This broken down rocker guitaist cant go past Hank Marvin and the Shadows, especially anything by Hank “Solo”.
Happy dressing (and listening)

I have the same problem as Val’Sheril but my problem is Insomnia due to the Side effects of Medication!
When i like to relax(and USA Girls might not of heard of this artist)but mine for my pains is Jean-Michel Jarre to relax,anything by him really but when i get angry i’m afraid it’s the Dickies!
Now,most of you US Girls will think what the hell is a limey girl doing listening to them?
You see,at my age i can remember them way back in the 70’s before Anna found me!
I can also relax to ABBA as Classical Music doesn’t appeal!!!!
So,a quite crazy mix of listening material and so i expect no Thanks whatsoever for my choices!
Apologies to you all darlings!!!!
Love & Hugs

You can’t go wrong with a good jazz record for both calming down and cheering up. I recommend Billy Cobham’s Art of Five.
That said, my main mental ailment is insomnia, so no music is better than any music for getting me to sleep. Or failing that a good classical piece.
Though when I really need that endorphin rush, something heavy but intricate and melodic gets me going. Mars Volta, Finch, and the Used to name a few.
Hope that helps!

Me,i don’t like it but Sleep Well later darling!
Myself,it is time to count sheep and slip in to my Chemise and Fluffy Slippers!
It is nearly 10PM here and it’s gonna be a rough old night in these temperatures as it’s quite warm here in Northern England!

Any kind of triumphant or epic anthem, such as Finish Line by Skillet. Or anything upbeat and “poppy,” like Momoland music. I know just named off 2 wildly different groups from two completely different genres.

lol No worries. Most who see my playlists on YT would think I’m insanely complicated just by how mixed up my various genres, musical vibes, etc really was. Some have even told me “You have no taste in music” because of how mixed up my tastes are. XD So you’re not the only one with convoluted genres.

Interesting music choices. But what about “Little Bitty” by Alan Jackson for those “need a pick-me-up” kind of moments? Or “Don’t Take The Girl” by Tim McGraw for those moments when you just need to let out some tears? (let’s face it… everyone has those moments when they just need to cry without any real reason for it sometimes)
I’m the type who tends to pay attention to the words of songs sometimes. So “Don’t Take The Girl” by Tim McGraw and “When I’m Gone” by Eminem both are pretty emotional to me because of the meaning behind the songs. But it’s been a while since “When I’m Gone” by Eminem has worked on me (guess it’s time to find a replacement for those “need to cry just because” moments in place of Eminem’s “When I’m Gone”)

I love the piano, one of the most beautiful music instruments ever invented, in my humble opinion. And one of the most enjoyable pianists, and my personal favorite, is Brian Crain. His compositions are very relaxing and, for me, very emotional, so they often bring me to tears. Just type his name into google and you will find lots of enjoyable music to listen to.

I was wondering when someone would mention Enya. I love her music. I have all my her CDs. My wife would tell her friends that I listen to her, it would embarrass me. None of my crowd would even think of her. I also like piano music and anything in the easy listening category.

That’s a really good question, Malody.
I have a nice CD collection, and I’m a movie buff so I enjoy listening to soundtracks.
A real calming (but sad) one is titled “Evenstar” featuring Isabel Bayrakdarian from the LOTR: The Two Towers soundtrack, or when I feel like I need to “Rev Up” I may listen to 80s songs like “I Love Rock N’ Roll” by Joan Jett, or “America” by Neil Diamond. I also love listening to Shania Twain songs to cheer me up, and while I’m putting on makeup as well. ♥️
