For me at the moment the song that makes me feel good is Mumford & his amzing musical sons - Sigh No More.

What about you guys.

    Sad But True - Metallica

    I wake up to that song every day because it makes me feel goooooooooooooooooood!

  • Depends on my mood.

    For a good rocking track there's Seether's Rise Above This.

    For a nice light and happy song there's always Missy Higgins' Scar or for a nice chillout song there's always her song Ten Days

    For an uplifting tune I find that Faithless' Insomnia hits the spot. Gotta love that synth!!!

  • Levellers - Far from Home. ALWAYS makes me smile

    Pretty much anything by Einaudi, but the one that just sends me to the land of Zen is Nuvole Bianche (White Clouds), or maybe Rose, or then again Divenire. Ahhhh crap.
