What music do you listen to when you're going through a tough time in a relationship?

OK, not the brightest of subjects, but if you want you can post a reply saying 'Frankly, I'm doing just fine thank you very much, and here's the music I play to express that and here's the music I play when I'm getting it on'. And if that's what you want to post, go right ahead. Be my guest. There's a box or a button or some damn thing somewhere for you to do just that.

And that's all fine and dandy and, hopefully, the situation we're in most of the time, and no bad thing either. Mind you, my choices would still look odd even then. However, that isn't the topic of tonight's discussion.

So; what music do you play when things aren't working out? Because we all do - it's a way of expressing the feelings we can't articulate at the time, of letting some of the angst out. And having been in that place, having played that music, it sticks around, it *means* something (in an altogether perhaps-too-teenage-for-comfort way). You can't easily listen to it again without being back in that place, feeling those feelings, no matter how long the years between then and now.

Now I appreciate I'm probably in a minority of one here by listening to Peter Hammill's 'Over' and 'As close as this' at those times, but that doesn't make me a bad person. A little depressed at the time possibly, but that was my choice.

What did you choose?

(Still no 'quixotic' in the moods list. Perhaps I should argue for the inclusion of 'jejune' too).

If things are tough, and Im a bit fed up, I blast out meatloaf (well, i blast out meatloaf whatever mood Im in lol) status Quo, or anything with some life! moody love songs do nothing for me, after all most are about the end of a relationship which is NOT what you want when a bit down! In fact, why are most love songs sad? not all I know, Lady in red and power of love a couple that come to mind, but why can't love songs be fun and express the great fun of finding out about someone, those early days when its all about fun? Keep smilling peeps, luv n hugs xxxxxxxxxx

It depends on my mood at the time what I would listen to, but generally when working around the house it would be Beach Boys, Beatles, G4, Cliff Richard (easy listening). When I'm depressed I rarely listen to anything at all, but when I am feeling in the mood for love it is usually some heavy rock (e.g. Cream, Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Queen etc). It never fails to work and gives an incredible adrenalin rush.

When things aren't going too well for me.... I listen to Cold Play - "Fix You"..... it always makes me cry... but hey ho.. crying is an outlet of emotion and then you pick yourself up and get on with life ..... And put Santana on the stereo.... Really Loud!!!!

The answer to every question is ..........

I go for something to uplift me, get into, and completely lose myself in. Muse fits this bill for me. I can't abide music from my younger/teenage years, apart from U2.
