There's a logical discrepancy there I think, Osburger...
Anyway. Listening to music is a valid way to remove depression possibly up and unto the very pinnacle of which might cause a person to make the Ultimate Decision. However I think cheerful music when you're depressed is only likely to seriously piss you off, and therefore recommend highly Tom Waits' "Misery Is The River of The World" - if he has managed not to reach for the cheesegrater, you can surely avoid it also.
R.E.M - everybody hurts. Duh, it's saved thousands of lives since the early nineties. Bill Berry should be given a nobel peace prize or at least a sainthood (Although an R.E.M fan this is not anywhere near my top 20 of favourite R.E.M songs).
Huey Lewis and the News - Power of Love
Autograph - Turn up the Radio
Prince - Sign O the times
Prince - Little red corvette
Rush - Red Barchetta
Jethro Tull - Aqualung
Queen - Don't stop me now
ELP - The Sheriff
ELP - Fanfare for a common man
Moody Blues - Nights in white satin
[i:9398994bc3]"Kill Yourself" - Stromtroopers Of Death[/i:9398994bc3]
Pantera - Cowboys From Hell [live] - well most Pantera apart from "...Trendkill"
Metallica/Diamond Head - "Its Electric" [either bands version]
Def Leppard - "Rocks Off" or "Rock Brigade"
Megadeth - "My Last Words"
Skid Row - anything off the first 2 albums.
Bad Religon - "I Wanna Conquer The World"
Suidical Tendencies - "You Can't Bring Me Down"
Daft Punk - "Robot Rock" - just makes me wanna dance!
