Sad: Every Ernest movie I've seen makes me cry at one point or another. This song from "Ernest Goes to Camp" is the saddest one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IqjUC8tDH9s

Happy: Rapper's Delight Club. Daycare kids rapping. Bestest ever. http://www.myspace.com/rappersdelightclub

This is the answer I always give.

It's very sad and very hopeful at the same time.

It starts horribly sad, gets hopeful at 2:25, and by 3:07 it's a little angry and frantic.

My Dog is an Astronaut, Though by Pond



You, my friend, can go suck it. D':

Sad Song: Mr. Bojangles. A client came in and just said the name of that stupid song and I started blubbering on the spot.

Happy Song: I have so many! This is the most recent in my hit parade: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6gSSsCdFeA

Ooh have another one!

Happy: Modest Mouse - Dashboard http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erc40wCxRZo
Sad: Keren Ann - The ballade of Lady & Bird http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jYIuc2Oi ... re=related

Edit: And to anyone who likes the Charles Trenet song that was linked earlier down the page, totally check out his song 'L'Ame Des Poetes'. It's one of the most beautiful songs I've heard. The lyrics are worth checking out too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QjKXsLmtiqM

My flatmate and I used to always listen to this song, whether we were getting ready to go out, making dinner, or just lounging around doing uni work.



I love that song. :)

Happy songs- This Charming Man- The Smiths
It's my 2nd favourite Smiths song. The guitar riff is just so lovely and upbeat.

Cut Your Hair- Pavement
It has such a great message- "Darling, don't you go and cut your hair, do you think it's going to make him change?"

Rolo Tomassi- Party Wounds
Quite an aggressive sounding song, but it reminds me of all the great times I've had seeing them live.

Sad Songs
The Sea is a Good Place To Think of the Future- Los Campesinos!
Beautiful and haunting.

Kid A- Radiohead
This song messes with my head. It's so lovely though.

many years ago when my daughter was little, we were spending a lazy afternoon lounging in bed; this song came on so I jumped up and did an interpretive dance for her. I think she knew in that moment that she had a crazy mother. the look on her face was priceless
