You have very good taste in music. :p

I don't usually listen to one song but rather a cd(s) of a favorite artist when I'm anxious/depressed. I have many but I find myself usually listening to Linda Perry (her solo stuff or with 4 Non Blondes), I love her voice. Also Crooked Fingers, Alanis Morissette or Ani Difranco.
thanks toad licker. By the way, what is it like to lick a toad? I here the ones down south are pretty wild! I like a little alanis morrisette and some sheryl crowas well.
Some good tunes guys. Hey, how do you post a song from youtube on here?

This performance of it is amazing, gives me goosebumps every time, Trent Reznor has suffered with social anxiety and depression himself. I love the way his voice cracks during it

great tune, but i like the cover better, check it out:

When anxious, I like to listen to either of these to get the healthy kind of adrenaline flowing:

When I was depressed, which I fortunatly haven't been in a long time, I liked to listen (and sing along) to these a lot:
Good stuff man. Good lookin' out postin' the don't approach me video. been awhile since i've seen that. it always helps to give me a little boost when i need it. I've kind of got myself off track and am trying my best to get outta the gutter. It's tough.

I wanna thank everybody for posting in this thread and sharing your music! Not everybody has that same love for music that we all seem to share. Here's one that I haven't heard in awhile and will listen to as I'm posting it:
Whoops. Here's the song: Ozzy and Em:
