Best blues for when you're, well, feeling blue

Howlin' Wolf is pretty awesome, and Chulahoma by The Black Keys is pretty sweet as well. I've been meaning to get more blues though.

funny thing is, I find alot of blues music to be quite happy

Blues is triumph over adversity, so I don't put blues on when I'm down at all. Very few musical genres are so refreshingly honest. Blues is.

T-bone Walker-Stormy monday Blues
Billie Gibbons-Blue Jean Blues
Robin Trower-Bridge of Sighs

And Then to make me feel better...
Jimi Hendrix-Red House
(I know her sister will)

Of Course, You can Always just play your own blues. thats the best

Stevie Ray Vaughan, BB King, Ry Cooder .. many have songs that really make me feel better.

I don't put on blues when I have the blues either.

I try:
Thom Yorke/Radiohead or Tori Amos - To let the blues overwhelm me.
The Mars Volta - To turn the blues into an angry/meloncholy kind of mood.

I don't normally try to change my mood with music, I try to further it. A little destructive at times but that's the way I like it.

A couple of Thom Yorke songs that get me a little blue:
The Tourist - Radiohead
Rabbit In Your Headlights - Unkle
How to disappear completely - Radiohead

I agree with jackhammer, frances, arivolk.....I don't put on the blues when im feeling blue or down. I play and listen to the blues because I'm excited about the blues lol. Puts a smile on my face every time. And Chumb good call on the black keys, I freakin love that band.

Yeah, enjoy Blues much!!!
Although I only listen to chinese Blues but I think there's no border for music, right? I enjoy Blues so much especially during rainy day. David Tao, Z-Chen, Yanzi... they are some my favourite singers!!!

well for me it's pretty obvious, Miles Davis' Kind of Blue.
