Great shout, I’d nominate this…“When you punish a person for dreaming his dream
Don’t expect him to thank or forgive you
The best ever death metal band out of Denton
Will in time both outpace and outlive you”


#25

I’m drawing a blank and realizing what that says about the headspace I occupy 24/7.


#26

There are few things more uplifting than a good ol’ “HAIL SATAN!” singalong.


#27

Perhaps not totally positive…but singing this chorus was especially helpful when trying to overcome addiction issues:


#28

Fountains of Wayne - red dragon tattoo


#29

“Brian Wilson presents SMiLE” is all you need.


#30

Near enough anything Deerhoof have ever done could fit this tbf, especially the last two records. As a band they’re just joy incarnate


#31

This is always my go to “it’ll be alright” track, never fails to put a smile on my face


#32

The last two albums definitely make the idea of optimism sound subversive, like an alternate universe where punk is trying to assure us there is a future instead of all that “no future” stuff


#33

#34

Unusual to get such a happy upbeat song in a minor key.


#35

Nothing cheers up like Jeppo, especially when she’s telling Tom Hanks she’s preggers

Despite their rep as a depressing band, they have some really positive uplifting songs. I haven’t analyzed the lyrics too much, so if it turns out these are actually about suicide or something apologies.
