My Playlist #2 - The Most Beautiful Songs

Updated on June 20, 2014

According to Joboda & Juslin (2001), "The structural features of music not only help convey an emotional message to the listener, but also may create emotion in the listener. These emotions can be completely new feelings or may be an extension of previous emotional events. Empirical research has shown how listeners can absorb the piece's expression as their own emotion, as well as invoke a unique response based on their personal experiences."

So, I here present you with a list of songs that are particularly good for creating a particular emotion in you. It can be sad, happy, nostalgic, or something else. I suggest putting these songs in a playlist according to the appropriate emotion, sitting back and closing your eyes as the music fills your soul. Cry, swoon, sing, hum, or whatever else you may feel like doing. Enjoy the magic of music.


If you know any other songs that you feel belong in this list, feel free to add them below under "Comments". I'll be sure to take a listen and might extend the list with your suggestion.

In the future, you may also expect me to extend the list with new songs!
