Welcome to our Friday music thread! Our theme today are songs that you play to reflect, enhance or improve your mood. What are the songs that cheer you up? What music gets you revved up? What songs put you “in the mood”? What songs make you reflective?
Serve ’em up, a song and when you like playing it for what mood!
This song by Neil Young was my anti-Bush anthem (even before Michael Moore used it for the end credits of Fahrenheit 911), when I was pissed off at what he was doing to us and the world, I’d sing this pretty damn loud!
Rockin’ in the Free World
Along those lines, when life sometimes seems to be trying to hammer me, this Tom Petty song says it all for me:
Nothing cheers me up or gets me slamming along than this Joey Ramone cover:
What a Wonderful World

Lastly, in honor of the holiday season, two very different songs that put me in the Christmas mood. The first reflects the proper holiday spirit all consumers should share:
The Kinks – Father Christmas
John Lennon – Happy Xmas (War is Over)
What songs are your mood enhancers?
