Basically I have been listening to the same three bands for years: Bayside, Brand New and Zebrahead I have come to realise that the music I listen to is just plain angry about relationships and in some cases life. It didn't bother me until recently when I started to understand what the lyrics where fully about and now I realise the music I am into has just controlled my emotions and outlook on life to some degree.
I now have a girlfriend and I think it is time to move on from such bands because it is doing no good for my thoughts. Not all women are going to cheat, lie and are crazy (despite what these bands have to say). I need to become a more laid back happy person again (the person who my girlfriend supposedly fell in love with) see I am doing it again 'supposedly' is me doubting she loves me -_-

I am turning 20 soon and I need a new outlook on life. I need to listen to something else for a change. Nothing about relationships, maybe not even any lyrics. Does anybody have idea? And ideas on how to relax, stop being serious and just enjoy life?

There just tunes fella , not meant to control your thoughts or dictate your lifestyle , meant to be enjoyed . The majority of songs are written about life , loves and loses as it happens to us all.. all that springs to mind is some dumb happy hardcore dance naff , but if you enjoy bands that actually strum a guitar i think in the main your shit outta luck..lol


chill out my friend ..

Looking for upbeat, carefree, happy songs? I can do that.
Some of these videos may be blocked in countries other than the US.
If so, you can circumvent that with ProxTube.

(I've never seen this video before tonight . Kinda freaky. But the song is appropriate for your situation.
Leave all your love and your loathing behind. You can't carry it with you if you want to survive.")

Just because I assume most people here are younger than me, I have to throw in some oldies.

Primus
(This is known as "rock-a-billy" music. Give it a chance. Pay more attention to the lyrics than the visuals. They're crazy.)

Honestly this sounds stupid, but listen to some oldies. The music is just so fun and it's easy to get caught up. It's hard not to be in an upbeat mood by it. Some songs I recommend is:

Elvis Presley - Blue Suede Shoes
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4QmuMD634vU

Elvis Presley - Promised Land
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_HR_-hsAIRA

BTO - Let it Ride
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j83xviHVmGg

I'm too lazy to look for more.
