song/music recommendations?

<p>i was looking for three types of songs:</p>

<h1>1- something gentle, soothing, acoustic, like</h1>

<p>"waiting for an angel" by ben harper
or "into dust" by mazzy star</p>

<h1>2- some good, bouncy pop songs</h1>

<p>i know there are people who roll their eyes at such bubblegum pop, but believe me,
there's nothing else like it during workouts or crappy mornings
well, for me, anyways </p>

<h1>3- classic/orchestral pieces</h1>

<p>any suggestion would be much appreciated
don't be afraid to mention songs that you secretly love but am afraid to post :P
i listen to miley during my morning runs, so yeah.
you get my point.
any song that you think is good will be

<p>#1 would be anything by the Postal Service (specifically, 'Such Great Heights', 'Nothing Better', 'Sleeping In'). And 'Mouthwash' by Kate Nash; 'Parentheses' and 'True Affection' by the Blow; 'Chinese' by Lily Allen; '100 Years' by Five for Fighting. You may or may not like 'One' by Epik High. 'Reason' by Hoobastank, maybe.</p>

<p>#2 check out Yelle (French singer) but don't look up the lyrics if you prefer PG-13 lyrics; 'Pack of Cards' by Social Studies is an excellent workout song; 'I Get Around' by Dragonette'; 'Tribute to Ms. Lonely' by Milkman is a pretty awesome mashup.</p>

<p>#3 just one: 'Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence', Ryuichi Sakamoto. Kind of. It's along the same lines as what you were asking, I think.</p>

<p>No Weezer is life</p>

<p>1) I would recommend a multitude of Michael Wong/Kong Leung's songs (Thank you Ilikeyou for the recommendation). The songs are in Chinese, but I've found them to be soothing. Here are a few that I'm fond of:</p>

<p>-Fairy Tale
-Never Apart</p>

<p>Aside from that I think that you should consider listening to some of Celine Dion's songs.</p>

<p>2) I'll just list some artists:</p>

-Taylor Swift (If you're fond of that type of upbeat music)
-The Killers
-Bon Jovi

<p>3) Here are some classical songs that I find preferable:</p>

<p>-Kiss the Rain
-Moonlight Sonata
-Swan Lake</p>
