I get this a lot with music. I listen to a lot of instrumental music though, Porter Robinson - Language comes to mind, or Dominik Eulberg & Gabriel Ananda - The Space Between Us...
Kenji is an amazing song!!Songs which trigger negative emotions in a good way? Dunno if I follow you there... like it's so beautiful that it's overwhelming?
I have a few songs which choke me up, but they aren't uplifting. Some because they speak too close to the truth, others just engage my sympathy.
Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls is probably the closest to what you're talking about. So beautiful it's emotional.
Kenji by Fort Minor, one of those that engages my empathy.
My Best Friend by Misty Miller
Just generally emotional, Landfill by Daughter
And many more personal ones.
Yeah, I like that one!
I could keep going with all the songs I'd want to recommend of Shakey Graves. A modern blues-y vibe.
