Last week's FridayFive about music

Music & You!
What artist-song describes your: [Bonus points if you linky to a Youtube video.]






Love: Um, no track as such. Nothing that "describes my love" as the original question asks and nothing that I play when I am in love. Nothing comes to mind. Perhaps I am always in love.

Anger: When I am angry I have a bunch of tracks/music that I listen to that help me feel defiant and strong. Same when I am depressed because anger and defiance has always been my main coping mechanism for those emotions. Thinking about it, though, the same music tends to be my go-to playlist for many other emotions as well. One that does seem to fit Anger, however, is as seen on taibhse_fiach's reply to this Friday Five:
Depeche Mode - Walking In My Shoes (Remastered Video)

Hope: These questions are strange. I do not have music that describes my emotions. Maybe I am odd.

Happy: Ditto.

Sad: Ditto.

Not part of the original question, I use this next track to calm me and help me get sleepy:
David Sylvian - The Healing Place (Remastered edition) from the album "Gone To Earth"

It's funny, because while I can think of a few pieces that are very emotional for me, I couldn't put a satisfying word on them. They're not "sad" pieces or "love" pieces, yet they seem to represent very real emotions. Sometimes I feel like it's the other way around: I feel something and instead of having a name for the emotion, I start to play the song in my head instead, as if some feelings were just plainly too complex for words.

I don't know if that makes any sense...

Yeah, that Friday Five gets music all wrong. Listening to music, good music at any rate, reshapes your moods, so you can't really pin any of them to the wall.

Sylvian is good, I've got Let The Happiness In on many a playlist.
