definitely definitely radiohead - the bends. feeling bitter, feeling upset, feeling gutted, wrenched, or spitted.. this one always gives me exactly what I want to hear and in some weird way manages to make me feel better.

(nice to see some others pick this as well)

If I had to pick a song it would be
Talib Kweli - Get By
or
Of Montreal - Climb the Ladder

Talk Talk - Spirit of Eden.

most of you guys here must not have discovered it yet. no doubt there would be 10 threads about it a day otherwise. it is just that good, and feels inspired in much the same way as The Joshua Tree. though it's better.

the Smiths.. anything of theirs but I have this special mix cd of my favorites tunes by them on it and it brightens me up inside
but to be honest I always turn to U2's Joshua Tree and Unforgettable Fire when I feel low/contemplative/depressed.

Brilliant Album! Probably could easily become my go-to album in time. I chose the Bends because it's been with me through thick and thin.. I discovered Spirit of Eden late last year and it's now in my top 5 albums of all time.

This has got to be the most unoriginal uplifting song I could choose, but I can't help it. "Beautiful Day" always makes me feel better.
But besides that, there's also
Shine- Collective Soul
Interstate Love Song- Stone Temple Pilots
All Over You- Live
The Song Remains the Same- Led Zeppelin

Most uplifting U2 album altogether would have to be War. A lot of the songs have these upbeats that could make anyone happy.

This is going to echo the sentiments of a few people who posted before, but Disintegration by The Cure is the ultimate wallow-in-your-sadness record.

Damien Rice's O is also good for this, too. He's my fifth favorite Irishman.

ah yes, damien rice's O is good.

my "go to" music would be:
coldplay - parachutes
radiohead - the bends
the garden state soundtrack
the smiths
bjork

however, i find that i'm always listening to music all the time, regardless of my mood, that i'll be pretty much listening to anything so i never really have to "go to" my comfort music, i'm already probably listening to something.

and there's some music that i can't really listen to when i'm sad cuz i'll become even more depressed. for example, all radiohead after ok computer, inclusive. i love radiohead but i always feel crappier after listening to them. nirvana's quite depressing too.
