    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.

    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
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Elvis Presley - Promised Land
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    BTO - Let it Ride
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I'm too lazy to look for more.

    Ugh, one band that I absolutely hate. Well I don't hate them, I just hate all of their songs. I seriously see no reason as to why everybody loves them so much.
