Top 7 Tunes That Elicit Strong Feelings

People naturally react to music. It behaves as a powerful drug on the rest of us too. It activates similar areas of our body that are activated during highly pleasurable experiences about food, sex, or illicit drugs and has a deep connection to our feelings. It has the sheer power to evoke emotions and memories that are frequently much more powerful than words ever could be. We have compiled a list of 7 songs that will help you feel something – good or bad!

1. Happy-“I Feel It Coming” (Cover) by DSharp

This song has been everywhere. It’s infectious and will make you want to get up and dance, even if it is only in your mind! The cover version by DSharp (whose actual name is Donovan Sharpe) is perfect for this list because he managed to take an already popular song and make it his own.

He also manages to evoke a sense of happiness that is difficult to do. The cover is also very aesthetically pleasing, and the song itself has a nice instrumental to it. It’s like what I imagine happiness sounding like!

2. Sad- “River Flows In You” by Yiruma

This song evokes a sense of sadness and longing, just as its title suggests. Yiruma is an artist from South Korea who has been known to create music that makes you feel something – good or bad! This slow piano ballad will have you feeling all sorts of things, so be forewarned before putting on the headphones.

It tells the story of someone wanting to be with their lover again, despite knowing they cannot be together physically anymore – like how rivers flow into each other but never meet or mix ever again! A truly moving experience for all those who listen (and watch) carefully enough.

3. Stressed -“We Are The Champions” By Queen

The anthem for anyone who’s ever felt overwhelmed with the pressure of life. We all go through particularly challenging times where we feel like it just isn’t worth it anymore and that there is no point in what you’re doing, but this song will help motivate you! It was even sung by a group of astronauts on the International Space Station when they were feeling stressed – which says something about its power over us mere mortals. If Freddie Mercury could belt out these lyrics while in space, you can do anything here on Earth!

The song doesn’t just motivate you; it will also help pump you up and give your confidence a boost. It’s the perfect pick-me-up for when you’re feeling stressed out!

4. Focused-“Nocturne op. 9 №2” by Frederic Chopin

The song starts slowly with light notes being played on the piano before building into something more grandiose – much akin to how our attention span grows when we focus intently on something!

This piece of music is a beautiful melody that will have you feeling a sense of focus and serenity. Chopin was well known for his Nocturnes, which were pieces written for the solo piano. Still, this particular one has been used as background music in various TV shows to induce feelings of calmness and tranquillity. It’s no wonder why because you’ll feel like anything is possible after listening to it once or twice!

5. Motivation-” Fix You” By Coldplay

This song is a classic and is featured in many different TV shows, movies, and even video games. It’s an emotional piece of music written after the band had experienced significant loss from Hurricane Katrina, which devastated their hometown city of New Orleans. The lyrics make this particularly motivating, though – it talks about how there will be times when things don’t run according to your plan, but you have to pick yourself up and carry on because life goes on!

There’s a certain sense of perseverance within these words that help remind us why we do everything we do – it can all seem pointless sometimes until you take a step back and look where you’re going and then realize just how far you’ve come already!

6. Sleepy/Tired — “Starlight” by Michel Simone

This track was created specifically for babies to help them fall asleep, but it also helps adults relax. It has a remote, otherworldly quality to it, which is why we think you’d go out into space and drift off listening to this song.
There’s something about the soothing instrumental and voices within that makes you want to close your eyes and have sweet dreams, so hopefully, whatever burden weighing down on you will disappear by morning time.

This piece definitely makes us feel drowsy and ready for a good night’s sleep. The song is also very easy on the ears, so there aren’t any harsh or jarring sounds that will keep you awake. Make sure to check out this tune before going to bed tonight, and we promise you’ll be out like a light.

7. To get pumped up – “Immigrant Song” by Led Zeppelin

This song is the perfect choice to get you ready for anything in life. It’s a high-energy track that happens to be about Vikings pillaging and plundering, but these lyrics will inspire you no matter what your profession or lifestyle!
It’s an epic rock anthem with all the qualities of great music – it has a fantastic beat to it, the guitars are rousing and energetic, the vocals sound amazing, and Robert Plant certainly knows how to rock out!

This song is synonymous with being a badass because nothing can stop you after listening to it. Go forth now, conquer your day/night/whatever else you have planned for yourself.


Each of these tracks gives us a reason to feel something. Whether it is nostalgia, happiness, or sadness, they are here for that exact purpose. Without them, we would not have the full package of music and emotion – so get familiar with your feelings because you may be feeling some more than you think!
