I like songs that are upbeat and positive and exude exhilarating energy, at least in terms of secular songs. These would be songs like Zip ee Dee Doh Dah (from Song of the South), Oh, What a Beautiful Morning (from the musical Oklahoma), My Dog Blue, etc. For sacred music, I like the psalms, such as "The Lord is my strength and my salvation, of whom shall I be afraid". I'm a musician who sings and plays several instruments (off and on clarinet, trumpet, recorder, piano, violin and oboe plus sing tenor in the choir) so for me music is an ongoing catharsis to help prevent from going in the rut in the first place. I also like listening to classical music; it is very soothing and reassuring. You can listen to KXPR 88.9 in Sacramento or any classical National Public Radio (NPR) station in major cities. Also, good humor music like you hear on the Prarie Home Companion radio show on NPR helps you get out of a slump.
