Feel free to add as many songs as you want to, I won't be skipping any song and it'll be playing in order.

Rules: Add as many songs as you want. Any type, genre/mood. Please take it seriously. It's for a psych experiment / assignment. I'll post the results of the experiment here.

What I'm looking to experiment: Mood changes. My mood. Sensations. Feelings (anxiety, calmness, etc).

Thanks in advance fellow redditors

Great idea! I've chucked a handful in there that make me feel very strong emotions - And very different from one another!

I won't start the project until next week to allow people to add songs but I was taking a look at some of the songs and i think it's really interesting to see how the songs some users added are so different to other users and how I can make a vague idea of what kind of music people like.

This is awesome! I'm gonna add a few songs!

Added like 8 songs from heard em say to wicked hope you like the flow and the different genre's

26 years ago today, Nirvana released the album "Nevermind".

Nevermind is the second studio album by American rock band Nirvana, released on September 24, 1991 by DGC Records. Produced by Butch Vig, Nevermind was the band's first release on DGC. It was also their first album to feature drummer Dave Grohl.

It dropped the same week as “Blood Sugar Sex Magik” and “The Low End Theory.”

In retrospect, 1991 was a pretty good year for rock, pop, metal, and rap. Aside from Nevermind, Blood Sugar Sex Magik, and The Low End Theory, I remember Metallica's self-titled album (known as the Black Album), Pearl Jam's Ten, Soundgarden with Badmotorfinger, the two Use Your Illusion albums from Guns N' Roses, Michael Jackson's Dangerous, U2's Achtung Baby, R.E.M. coming out with Out of Time, Lenny Kravitz with Mama Said, Ozzy's No More Tears, and also 2Pac's debut 2Pacalypse Now.

In general, no.

Overnight. Hair metal disappeared completely, and literally everything was grunge a year later.

It felt like the future history of music was being rewritten, like this one album forced everything off-plan.

This album came out before I was born. For anyone who was around then, could you answer a few questions I have:

did people know who they were before this album?

how quickly did this album make grunge popular?

did you feel like you were watching music history unfold before your eyes or did it take awhile to sink in?

edit: I appreciate the many replies I've received. There are too many to answer to but I will post something here in response--

For context I was born in 1994 about a month before Cobain died. I found out about Nirvana when I was 10 so grunge was obviously gone by then. I grew up listening to nu metal, post grunge and pop punk because that was what was popular on rock/alt rock radio when I was a kid.

The anecdotes many of you have shared are just fascinating to me. I don't believe my generation had the chance to experience a cultural & musical movement the way you did w/ Nirvana & grunge. I've practically watched mainstream rock music die before my eyes during the course of my life. IMO the closest thing we had to a frontman like Cobain was Chester Bennington. Not saying Bennington is Cobain's equal -- but in terms of impact on a group of fans/people, my generation really doesn't have a defining frontman or rock star, & Bennington would be the closest.

Why is it so hard? ... to make it in America? :(

Last year at Bonnaroo, I walked back to Tent City in the dim morning light and a random pocket of cell reception informed me about the tragedy of the Pulse Nightclub shooting. I incredulously shared the news with my friend.

Later that day, I woke with what felt like a surreal cloud over the proceedings. Charles Bradley was the first act I saw that day, if I remember correctly, and he had such a beautiful and sincere message of love and acceptance for the crowd that brought me and many others to tears.

What a wonderful human being. May he rest in peace.

The first time I saw Charles Bradley live was the first time I've shed tears at a concert. I had never listened to him before, I went after reading an article about him in the paper the day of the show.

He opened with Heartaches and Pain. I could feel everything he was saying, his whole life pouring out on me, and I was overcome. I'd never felt anything like him before.

I'm so happy he finally made it, and had such a wonderful run so late in his life. His love and warmth touched everyone at his shows. I'm going to miss him.

Changes is the best cover of all time. RIP to the voice of love.

I just watched this anime for the first time this year. I've seen a couple popular anime like Death Note and Attack on Titan, but I'm not a huge anime fan by any means. However I heard this show was incredible so I took a chance and bought the DVD set. Now I'm just upset that I didn't dish out the extra cash to buy it on Blu-Ray.

There is such a quality and care in this show that you just can't find in more modern Anime. The Dub is phenomenal, the characters are fantastic, even something as small as the sound effects are great.

And the music. My God, the damn music. This song is my number 1 song in the whole show, but is a very close second.

If you haven't watched this show. Go watch it. Right now.

Check out Samurai Champloo next.

May the gods bless Yoko Kanno

Seconding this. It's an amazing, amazing show. Gorgeous, and the hip hop aesthetic is so well done.

The Killers have released their new album "Wonderful Wonderful"

The Killers have released their new album "Wonderful Wonderful"

Available everywhere. Pretty chill record. Was hoping for a little more of a Sam's Town feel but this is cool too. "Tyson vs Douglas" is my favorite.

Their style has changed quite a bit since hot fuss.

Tyson Vs Douglas is one of the best songs ever made

I feel like a bad killers fan since I havent really cared for anything since "Sam's Town." Hot Fuss is one of my absolute favorite records though...

I wanna like their newer stuff, but I just cant seem to get into it :(

The Killers are constantly citing bands like The Cars, Depeche Mode and Pet Shop Boys as influences and no one saw this shift in sound coming? I think it works for them, not for people waiting for another Hot Fuss

Dion Francis DiMucci (b July 18, 1939), better known as Dion, is an Italian-American singer-songwriter now widely recognized as one of the top vocalists of his era, blending the best elements of doo-wop, traditional pop, and rnb styles, as well as a forerunner in the development of rock and roll.

Early years

Dion was born to an Italian-American family in the Bronx borough of New York City. As a child, he used to accompany his father, a vaudeville entertainer, on tour, and developed a love of country music – particularly Hank Williams – and the blues and doo-wop stars he heard in local bars and on the radio. His singing abilities were honed on the street corners of Crotona Avenue, where he rounded up other local singers inventing acapella licks, and in local clubs.

In early 1957 he auditioned for Bob and Gene Schwartz, who had just formed Mohawk Records. They recorded him with a vocal group, The Timberlanes, and released a single "The Chosen Few", arranged by Hugo Montenegro, which became a minor regional hit.

With the Belmonts, 1957-1960

Schwartz also signed up Dion's friends, The Belmonts, named after nearby Belmont Avenue. Their breakthrough together came in early 1958, when "I Wonder Why" made # 22 on the national US charts, followed up with "No One Knows" and "Don’t Pity Me" which were also chart hits.

This success won Dion and the Belmonts a place on the "Winter Dance Party" tour with Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper. On 2 February 1959, after playing at Clear Lake, Iowa, Dion decided that he could not afford the $36 cost of a flight to the next venue [1]. The plane crashed, and Holly and the other stars were killed.

In March 1959, Dion and the Belmonts’ next single, "A Teenager In Love", was released, making # 5 in the US pop charts and # 28 in the UK. Their biggest hit, "Where or When", was released in November 1959, and reached #3 on the US charts. However, in early 1960, Dion checked in to hospital for heroin addiction, a problem he had had since his mid-teens. Further single releases for the group that year were less successful, there were musical and financial differences between Dion and members of the Belmonts, and in October 1960 Dion decided to quit for a solo career.

Solo stardom, 1960-1964


1961 album coverBy the end of 1960, Dion had recorded and released his first solo album, Alone With Dion, and the single "Lonely Teenager", which rose to # 12 in the US charts. Follow-ups "Havin’ Fun" and "Kissin’ Game" had less success, and the signs were that Dion would drift onto the cabaret circuit. However, he then recorded, with new vocal group the Del-Satins, an up-tempo number co-written with Ernie Maresca. The record, "Runaround Sue", stormed up the charts, reaching # 1 in the US charts in September 1961, and # 11 in the UK, where he also toured.


For the next single, the record company promoted the A-side, "The Majestic", but it was the B-side, Maresca’s song "The Wanderer", which received the radio plays and again rose swiftly up the charts, reaching # 2 in the US charts in December 1961 and # 10 in the UK. As a classic oldie, it made the UK top twenty again in 1976.

By the end of 1961, Dion was a major star, with a worldwide touring schedule, and he followed up with a string of hit singles – "Lovers Who Wander" (# 3), "Little Diane" (# 8), "Love Came To Me" (# 10) and "Ruby Baby" (# 2) all making the top ten in 1962. Several of these were written or co-written by Dion. He also had successful albums with Runaround Sue and Lovers Who Wander.

At the end of 1962, Dion moved from Laurie to Columbia Records, the first rock and roll artist ever signed to that label. Although the first single, Leiber and Stoller’s "Ruby Baby", was a big hit, reaching # 2, several follow-ups were less so, although "Donna the Prima Donna" and "Drip Drop" both reached # 6 in the charts in late 1963. Nevertheless, problems with his addiction and changing public tastes did cause him to enter a period of commercial decline.

Changing fortunes, 1964-1968
Following a European tour, Dion returned to the USA and was introduced to classic blues music by Columbia’s John Hammond. To the consternation of his management, he began recording more blues-oriented material, including Willie Dixon’s "Hoochie Coochie Man" and "Spoonful", but these releases – some produced by Tom Wilson, with Al Kooper on keyboards - were not commercially successful.

In 1966, Dion briefly reunited with the Belmonts for the album Together Again on ABC Records. Again, this bombed, despite one classic self-penned song, "My Girl The Month Of May". Although by this stage Dion’s career appeared to be nearing an end, he retained enough credibility to be, along with Bob Dylan, the only pop artist featured on the album cover of The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band in 1967.

In April 1968, Dion had a powerful religious experience. After getting clean from drug use, he approached Laurie Records for a new contract, and they agreed on condition that he record the song "Abraham, Martin and John", written by Dick Holler (also the writer of The Royal Guardsmen’s "Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron") in response to the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert F Kennedy during the summer of 1968. The success of this song – later recorded by many others including Marvin Gaye – which reached # 4 in the US charts, resuscitated Dion’s career.

The mature period, 1968-1986


Born To Be With You, 1975For the next few years, Dion’s music became radically different, moving to more contemplative and mature material. He released several albums essentially as a singer-songwriter, to critical acclaim but moderate sales, moving to the Warner Brothers label in 1969.


There followed a one-off live reunion show with the Belmonts at Madison Square Garden in 1972, released on album. This was followed in 1975 by the album Born To Be With You, eccentrically produced by Phil Spector. The album was a commercial failure, but has been subsequently praised by such artists as Jason Pierce of Spiritualized and Pete Townshend of The Who.

In 1978 Dion released an album drawing on many of his teenage influences, Return of the Wanderer, another critical success and commercial failure. In December 1979 he experienced a life-changing religious experience, documented in this article [1]. Thereafter, his recordings for several years were in a contemporary Christian music vein, in which he released a number of albums on the Dayspring label reflecting his religious convictions.

Recent work
In 1987 Dion agreed to do a concert of his old hits at Radio City Music Hall in New York. This helped free him to celebrate both his past and his future, and led to a series of special appearances, including a fundraiser for homeless medical relief. There he shared the stage with fans such as Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon and Lou Reed, all of whom cited Dion as one of their prime influences.

In 1988 Dion's autobiography (co-authored by Davin Seay) titled The Wanderer: Dion's Story was published. In the following year, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the induction speech being given by Lou Reed.

In 1989 he returned to secular rock music with the album Yo Frankie, and since then has released several albums with contemporary rock artists. His Déjà Nu album in 2000 found him covering Bruce Springsteen, a major follower over the years.

He joined Scott Kempner of the Del-Lords and Mike Mesaros of The Smithereens in a short-lived band called Little Kings. A live album was later released, but not widely circulated or promoted.

In January 2006 he released Bronx in Blue, an album of blues and country standards, which was critically acclaimed and nominated for a Grammy. As a practicing Catholic, Dion pursues prison ministry and reaches out to men going through addiction recovery.

Man, I love this song. There's just something about it that's so catchy.

When I was a kid, my parents had a few rock n roll classics compliations, and this song was on my favourite tape. It still gives me warm fuzzies, 30 years later.

You thought it was jazz, but it was me, Dion!
