30 Seconds To Mars - This Is War.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMAVLX…

It came to represent my life to me, and every time I hear it I feel at least a little bit empowered no matter how low I feel at the time.

Second up, "I'm so Sorry" by Imagine Dragons.

Interesting, I am not a fan of Lorde or anything they do. XD Psy I'm on the fence on, I'm not into dance music either. lol Different strokes for different folks I guess.

Recently, after watching a song re-arranged by a singer, it has become of my favorite songs:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YyBQF…  [모닥불 by 이세준, original songs is by 박인희]
It's like calming and just feels like you're in harmony with someone else or something. :heart: 

But for other motivations: I listen to something like these:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=z23NJS… [Still in Love by A-One] 
www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fbopcm… [Turbulence Turbine]
[Almost any Journey/John Denver song] 
It's really dependent on my mood and what I'm doing, since I can listen to just about anything at any point. The list would be too long, so I'll just leave it at that.

From Past to Present from Skyrim brings me a lot of peace of mind each time I hear it. Maybe it's because it always came up during times I was really struggling emotionally/mentally/life in general. It just reminds me to take a deep breath, exhale, and remember that despite everything there is still beauty in life and lots of mountains to climb along with lots of adventures to come. :)

I love that! :D

I have a few.
One is You Can't Take Me from the animation Spirit because it helped me cope with bullying in the past.

Then there is Savages by Marina and the Diamonds because it clearly shows how the world is now.

Then there is Surrender To Hop by Immeriate music. Which feels really strong as well to me.

And lastly there is Friends on the Otherside from Dr. Facilier. I do not really know why this one. But it just feels good. Like a strong song.

I love more.. But I can't really place my finger on it at the moment. I know it when I listen it though. XD

I've listened to worlds by porter robinson (It's an album, not a song) and it was the most magical experience I've ever experienced with music.

I somehow noticed that my high blood pressure (I have high blood pressure) went down immediately the day after sleeping to his music when I first discovered it. It was just so calming, but at the same time had the right level of energy. It was, everything he claimed it to be; beautiful, magical, uplifting, emotional, and kaleidoscopic as he called it.

I was just listening to it while doing homework. for saxophone, it's not too bad (considering I'm not a big fan of saxophone). Porter Robinson however is electronic (uhuh I'm one of those electronic music fans) although in some of the songs of Worlds (such as Fellow Feeling) there's string and piano.

If i wanted to go more natural or orchestral I listen to a duet  named llulatones or  someone named Marcus Warner (who also goes by the name Evening Star)
