Wow Easystreet,

That The Who song is pretty powerful. I remembered hearing something about a Pete Townsend scandal and looked him back up. Sounds like he was a victim of childhood sexual abuse. There is a lot of pain in his lyrics.

I also watched that Stanfields video. Looks like a very angry little boy. Can relate tho my anger is more of a teenager.

I’m sorry you have had so much pain. Felt so isolated. I can relate. Here to support you. I hope you find lots of healing.
Warmly,
Flifflo

I have one! And it’s positive!! Loud and a bit screamy and mad but positive. It’s like my anthem right now. It’s spot on for me.

Phil Collins - I Don’t Care Anymore

I could listen to it over and over right now. :D

Sorry for the edit but wanted to add. It feels powerful. I thought that was important to point out.

Love this topic! I come from a dance background so this is extra cool. For positive, I gotta go with anything Taylor Swift, and I'll now and then get the occasional Disney song stuck in my head.

For negative... thank goodness for my background in contemporary dance, so many feels and perfect for getting angst out. My go to negative, I need to feel I need to vent song has been the cover of "Wicked Game" by Ursine Vulpine. It's so dark and dramatic, it's a good output for angsty feelings.

Chiming in late, but Carlos Santana has told of his child sexual abuse in interviews many years ago.

I like songs of pain, conflict and destruction, which is clearly not a good thing. It is always black and white, and not nuanced at all.

I guess that music allows me to get catharsis on all the negativity My wife would say, "focus on something positive' , but that hasn't worked. at all.

All the best,
EasyStreet

A very powerful song like I like to listen to is

This is me from The Greatest Showman
Here are the lyrics but I would say go listen to is as is so powerful

I am not a stranger to the dark
Hide away, they say
'Cause we don't want your broken parts
I've learned to be ashamed of all my scars
Run away, they say
No one'll love you as you are

...

I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I'm meant to be, this is me
Look out 'cause here I come
And I'm marching on to the beat I drum
I'm not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me

Sherlocked, I like Taylor Swift too. My tastes are pretty wide. I love that dance is also an outlet for you. I really like this thread too. :D

Booklover, I think I remember hearing that song but I will listen to it again. I think I need to watch the movie. Powerful lyrics. I can understand why it speaks to you. Going to give it a listen.
