Default Music That Makes You Feel Good

What are the types of music that are festive and make you feel good? I like Cajun, German October Fest, Folk Hootnanny Style, Dixieland Jazz, Irish, Marichi, and some classical including a bit of Wagner. I have these on vinyl, cassette, CD's and even a few old 8 tracks.

I absolutely hate any type of music especially smooth jazz and cool soul, 60's Motown, 50's doo-wop, 60's oldies but goodies and British Invasion, 70's funk and Duke Ellington..I find my eclectic pallet distracts from my cruise experience so I try at all cost never to mix the two

Whenever I feel the need for something "soothing" I always put on the Bee Gees! Here is my all-time favourite:

I also love jazz . I've been to jazz concerts in New York ,Texas and Rhode Island .

My father was a jazz enthusiast .In the 1920's and 1930's ,he saw some of the alltime greats .

What makes me feel good is classic rock. Led Zeppelin, Bad Company, Cheap Trick, Rod Stewart, Bruce Springsteen and the list goes on and on.

Take care,

LOVE all the Great American "Standards"and "Big Band". Also, Dixiland Jazz makes me feel GREAT, as well as "Doo-Wop". Actually, other than "Rap", I love most all music.

I like Rap, Country, Classic Rock, R&B, Soul, Jazz, showtunes, Classical, Disco, Heavy Metal, ETC. To feel good and dance it's Disco. The only music I don't like seems to be Folk music I found it whinny.
