The 14 Best Songs for People with Depression
I am thoroughly convinced that Bill Conti’s “Gonna Fly Now” (aka the theme song from the Rocky movie) is the best song ever created. I used to play this song very sparingly and only before difficult math tests (I didn’t want this amazing song to lose its potency by being overplayed ;)).
Every time without fail, this song would lift me up and motivate me like no other, so I invite you to play this song and see if it lights your fire too.
In addition, here are several more great songs for people with depression or maybe if you’re just having a bad day and need something to lift your spirits. Some are motivational and upbeat while others are a little slower and something to relate to when you’re feeling down.
You can listen to a lot of these songs on the go with a free 30 day trial of Amazon Music Unlimited.
And as a bonus, who can forget the amazing “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” from Mulan? Be sure to watch the music video for extra inspiration and motivation! 🙂 THIS IS A SING-ALONG VERSION YOU GUYS. !!!!

There are times when you want to listen to motivating, upbeat music, and there are other times when you want to a song that’s so full of pure emotion that it turns you inside out. Here are emotional songs that bring out all the feels (“feelings” in meme speak ;)). Some are a little slower or sad, but all are very emotional and powerful.
