Yeah, happy!
Boo, sad.

Now it's your turn to share. That's the way it works.

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

Lyrics (highlight to reveal):

You strapped the dog into a chair, she tried to lick your face.
Then you counted backwards and you launched her into space.
You made no provisions for bringing her back home,
High and all alone.

You can look into the sky—you might see a falling star.
If I get one wish I hope that Laika will go far
I hope she sails on and on across the universe,
Finds there…

Some new world where she'll be safe
From man's experiments that don't have come home parts,
Free from being bound by chains or left alone in cars.
I wonder if she'll think about a family back on Earth.

Laika, Laika.

My dog is an astronaut light years away from home.
She lives up in heaven,
Howling above the moon.

She's not coming down!
It takes more than you to keep a good dog on the ground.
She's not coming back!
It take more than you to keep a good dog down.
Every night I look out my window, I find the faintest star above.

How'd you ever pick a name that you're never gonna use enough?

Why'd you name her if that was your big plan?

I love this song so much! Plus, I just know drag queens in my hometown are wrecking this shiitake...probably on the daily.

Sad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NP869swP2po
I love Fiona because even with simplistic lyrics there is such heartfelt emotional truth. Sigh.

can we have other emotions?

like, Frustrated because its a great song and I like it a lot, but they reference the myth of Icarus INCORRECTLY and it bothers me enough that I can't just move past it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P084CYA_B1M

and it would probably be my all the time jam if it weren't for that one line.


or how about one that makes me like people as a whole for no particular reason: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3YUCngN ... re=related

Happy: Rent a Cop by Ben Folds
Sad: Talking in Code by Margot & The Nuclear So and So's

Rent a Cop never fails to make me shake my butt, and as we all know it is physiologically impossible to be sad while shaking your butt.

I adore Talking in Code, but it never fails to put me in a more melancholy state of mind, partly due to some particular nostalgic associations.

So very happy.
This song reminds me of dancing with my friends. I can't be sad when I hear this song.

Sad.
Classic Smiths - jangly and upbeat, incredibly depressing lyrics.

Happy: The Mountain Goats - Alibi
Trees were bending in the wind, you were forty miles away
and I was headed your direction
I've been waiting all day, I've been waiting all day.


Sad: LCD Soundsystem - Someone Great
You're smaller than my wife imagined.
Surprised
You were human.

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.

Also happy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAAuBkLAYMQ&ob=av2e
My ultimate wintery song. Makes me feel all snuggly and cozy inside.

Sad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rePcHxFJIuU
It's a good kind of sad though. Nostalgic. Makes me think of walking outside my old high school in autumn. Crunchy leaves and Dunkin' Donuts coffee.

The first is about a cat helping a depressed guy and the second is about the cat running away, but both are sung from the cat's point of view.

There are at least a hundred songs that make me happy, but this one makes me happiest-
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qy6sIBJ2YHY

This song makes me sad, but mostly because of the memories with it-

Happy! Anything by Squeeze makes me happy and reminds me of a friend! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3WngGeI9lnA

Sad. :( Reminds me of someone, also. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYjwS2EoLYs I let myself listen to a few seconds and sing along angrily. Bad idea.
