    Just post 1 or two of each. It doesn't have to be your all time favorite; your choice for best ever; just great songs!

    I know the Op said 1 of each, I'll allow myself to post 2 of each of though:

    This The Smiths cover by Low, as my sad song:



    Or this Coil song, one of my all time favorite songs:



    And this Dinosaur Jr, song, which also happens to be one of my all time favorite songs, upbeat while not exactly happy:



    Or this Syd Barrett song, which is definitely on the happier side of things:



    So many great ones by Syd, it could have been Octopus, No Good Trying or even Wolfpack or from his time with Pink Floyd Bike, for a sad song by Syd definitely Dominoes!
