music for certain moods/feelings

Postby mitchellbravo » March 30th, 2016, 8:03 pm

So, when I'm working on my comic, and especially when I'm sketching/inking, I like to be listening to music that is harmonious with the type of mood I'm going for with the scene. So like a romantic scene I'll have a lot of mushy love songs playing, for an exciting scene I have a lot of upbeat, motivational, urgent music, et cetera.

Anyone have good recommendations for songs, bands, etc. for specific moods? In particular I'd love to get more "pissed off" type music, my selection for that is fairly paltry, especially since I'm staying away from stuff like metal/screamo :lol: I've been going off of a weird mix of some rap, classical, and a scattered handful of other genres' songs.

I have "heartbreak" songs pretty much covered, not hurting for that :lol: I'll post some playlist suggestions for that and other moods when I have a little more time.

Wait, you want songs that will piss you off?

No metal? What's left, Oompah? ;)

Here's a few I can think of off the top of my head:

Non-Metal Blood Pounding Adrenaline Music
*AFI - Silver and Cold (Okay, this song is special for me, it gets me excited because my brother and I used to sing it together)
*Dave Matthews Band - When The World Ends

*Usher - DJ Got Us Fallin' In Love
*The Fray - Never Say Never
*Van Morrison - Moon Dance
*The Platters - Only You
*Feist - Inside and Out (This one gets bonus points as one of the most erotic songs I've heard)
*Frank Ocean - Thinking About You
*The Platters - Twilight Time
*Toto - Africa

*Unwritten Law - Rest of My Life
*Everclear - Learning How to Smile
*Shelby Lynne - Wall in Your Heart
*Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Hysteric

Just Sad
*David Bowie - Young Americans
*Counting Crows - I Wish I Was A Girl
*Counting Crows - Round Here
*Everclear - Wonderful
*Live - Run Away

Sad Adrenaline
*Bush - Come Down
*Live - White, Discussion
*Staind - So Far Away

*Van Morrison - Into the Mystic
*Scorpions - Wind of Change

Trance music works really well during plane rides. "Saltwater" by Chicane simulates breaking through a thunderstorm cloud in a jet plane. It's that epic.
