I don't listen to music when I'm bummed. Having said that, I think the Allman Bros. "Not My Cross To Bear" would be a good number for "rising above it all". Blues, but so good it's got to make you smile!

Im going to have to agree with the majority of people in this thread...
I listen to the blues each and every day, despite how i am feeling at that given moment. That being said. The artists i enjoy most in the 'Blues' genre are; Robert Johnson (Come on in my kitchen, fav song of his) Mississippi John Hurt (Richland woman blues) and Huddie William Leadbetter, "Leadbelly" (Stewball).
Those are the three blues artists i have been listening to profusely for the past couple years. If anybody else enjoys early americana blues, head on over to youtube and check out (Aerosolchef) That is my profile on youtube. I have a collection of some good blues artists / songs, if you are interested.

Blue in Green from everybody's favorite jazz album Kind of Blue by Miles Davis will forever be my ultimate melancholy tune. It's all about Bill Evans' piano work, which is like Prozac for the ears.

i disagree. though kind of blue is a classic album, one of the best of all time, its not somewhere i would go for a really down home blues. maybe jimmy smith, or oscar peterson for something really swingin'

"Hard Time Killing Floor Blues", "Tupelo", "Death Letter Blues", "It's All Over/The Letter", "Alabama Blues" are just a few examples of how Blues is not always (not even close) triumph over adversity.

My guess is that it depends on the outcome that you're looking for. Do you want it to make you feel better or do you want immerse yourself in your lowdown?

Although this is not a discussion on "what exactly the blues is or is not", I have to agree with Aloz Eht. All due respect, Jackhammer, I don't hear anything triumphant about the blues, but just the opposite. I feel that some of the blues of recent time and today have blues riffs, blues chords and a blues format but are not so "blue". Then again, it's all in how you interpret the music. With a stretch you could call Adam Duritz a bluesman. I don't always know wtf he's talking about with elephants and bunny suits and raincoats n sh!t, but he sho iz blue 'bout it.

No, the blues aren't a plaything. They aren't just about breaking up with your girl. They aren't just about losing your job. They aren't just about just feeling 'blue'. What the blues are about is the near-constant struggle between good and evil that wages in the hearts and souls of every person. They are about the back and forth between angels and demons. They are about temptation, sin and redemption and the mad yowling in your heart of hearts. The true blues are not about trying to feel better. They are about bleeding off the pain of the human condition that builds in the very being of all of mankind. - Son House
