When you’re feeling down, what music cheers you up?

I think that if I am sad, I play sad music and just roll with it. Joni Mitchell said that some of the most beautiful music is the saddest.

Bonus: why do you think this music has that effect? What music do you prefer when you’re very happy?

It’s all about the chord progressions, they evoke feeling, and so sad music is soothing to the corresponding mood, or at least that’s my theory.

When I’m feeling up, I am much more likely to play something louder and faster, whereas in an off-mood, it would be pretty grating on the nerves!
