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”


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


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


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


Fountains of Wayne - red dragon tattoo


“Brian Wilson presents SMiLE” is all you need.


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


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


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



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


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.
