Lucky enough to see Arthur Lee at the Royal Festival Hall in 2003 - a great musician who had a somewhat troubled life...

I guess that I am not wired up the same way as the rest of the population There are a couple of tracks that I've been watching / listening to that raise my mood that I guess most people would not understand.
First of all, is Johnny Cash's supremely judged and presented cover of Nine Inch Nails' "Hurt".
The lyrics lay out the understanding that we are all here only temporarily and it is up to the individual to make the best of the hand they are dealt through their own efforts the video only helps to demonstrate the temporary nature of life and possessions. Most powerful of all is Mr. Cash's voice, full of a lifetime's experiences and sadly like June in the video, not long for the world, but the absolutely indominatable willpower demonstrated at the final crescendo of the track.
Secondly is Van Halen;s "Right Now"
This is more visual for the on-screen commentary and there's little more powerful than the commentary accompanying the golden retriever about 45 seconds in.

We are all connected, we are all responsible for how our own individual actions impact others and we have a personal responsibility to be the best we can be to the betterment of ourselves and our fellow creatures irrespective of race, creed, colour or species.
I'm not saying be nice to each other, I'm saying we should behave to each others as we'd want others to behave towards us.

artee,

as balm for the soul there is no greater music than that. No one could top it. Game over!

The Tallis Scholars brought Miserere to me in the 80s and Iíve taken every opportunity to hear it live since. I could only dream of being at their Sistine Chapel performance 😢

Bit more time on my hands (don't worry, washed AND sanytised ) but as a jazz freak , ANYTHING by Pat Metheny with fabbo Lyle Mays on board takes me beyond V1. Double Jack & coke with lots of ice and we are V2 + 15 !

Dan Dare,

You said it so much more eloquently than me, I agree with your sentiments entirely. That treble descant is sublime.
