Default Encouraging songs

Are there any specific songs that have helped you get through a really tough time? Im looking for songs with lyrics that make you feel like there is hope as well as beautiful delivery. Thanks so much!

This song helped me get out of a long spout of self pity after I had lost 2 people that were very close to me.
This is the last song on the Eels 2nd album called Electro-shock Blues and considering Mark Everett wrote the album while his mother died of lung cancer and his sister had just committed suicide it is a very sad album, but all the better that this is the last song on the album... In fact I had bought the album to indulge my self pity and what a surprise it was when this song came on. It will always remind me of the day I began to pick up my pieces hope you like it, it's not the best recording but it's all I could find...

"Right Here, Right Now" by Jesus Jones helped me through a really tough time when I was in my early teens. The lyrics are about the fall of the Berlin wall but somehow they also really work in a more general uplifting way for me.

"Hoover Dam" by Sugar is another one that's helped me through some tough times. I don't know what it is about that song exactly but I just find it incredibly uplifting.
