While it's not something you'd listen to to calm yourself down, it is definitely a song that I can relate to & it helps me through my struggle, realizing that I'm in a pit & there's no other way but up from here:

Normally I listen to a lot of progressive rock, like Radiohead, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, also a lot of downtempo & psybient, especially Emancipator & Ott, I am mostly into new sounds & experimental music, it helps me get in a state of trance, every time I listen to a new song I lay down in my bed with my eyes closed & let it take me on a journey & see what comes of it, music is one of the few things still keeping me optimistic in this world.

I like to listen to all different types of music. When I'm feeling depressed or if my anxiety is playing up, I tend to listen to:
The Fray                     Sleeping with Sirens
I the Mighty                Hands Like Houses
Demi Lovato               Early Rise
Avicii                           Chase & Status
Paramore                    Mayday Parade
Mallory Knox               Tonight Alive
You Me At Six              The 1975

My favourite songs right now are:
Issues - Never Lose Your Flames
Tori Kelly - Rocket
The Ending To This Story - Oh Winter
Five For Fighting - What If

Lately if I'm feeling rather moody, I find a Mozart opera can be helpful. It's hard to frown when listening to Mozart opera music.

Mozart and opera. Is there anything better? True, there is Verdi and Puccini and Offenbach and The Pearl Fishers, perhaps a favorite, after The Tales of Hoffmann.

These days we can get them on DVD from the library. How marvelous.

This one is probably a bit on the fast side, but it seems to help calm me down.

The messages are the best,

Be good to yourself
No regrets
Forgive
Life is walking a high wire

And if the tempo gets us moving, well, that's good too. Blood gets circulating and the brain rewards us with feel good charges. Very nice, thank you.

I listen to a band called The Green Children, and their music never fails to put me in a good mood. It's sort of soft elctro-pop-ish, but it sounds very earthy and soulful. Plus the singer's voice is simply stunning. Their music always has a positive message, and most of their proceeds go to charity. Check them out if you ever get the chance. You can find some of their songs on Youtube.  ;)

^I'm new as well and I couldn't help but reply to this.

I am really into a pop-punk band called The Wonder Years and they write a lot about anxiety/depression. Would definitely recommend checking them out. One of my favorite songs currently: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAuImdGn5Pc

I love listening to music, I take headphones everywhere and use music when I'm feeling panicky (like on motorway trips!)

My favourites are:-

Anything by Jack Johnson (he is so calming), Chase Coy - New Love, Olly Murs - Busy, Coby Grant - I wanna be the one, anything by Colbie Caillat, Alexander - Truth (from a Breaking Bad episode), Hellogoodbye - Here in your arms.

its funny just the other day I was looking for music to lift your mood and be calming on youtube...like there is a certain megahertz or something that is calming....but then I started to think I cant give up my normal sometimes depressive music that i love..
so even if im anxious or depressed I still listen to stuff i normally do even if it makes me emotional.  Lately I have been listening to a lot of Silversun Pickups. they are great

I listen to the chill out station on Pandora. I also subscribe to many chillout channels on youtube. My favorite is Sheepy. He has the best chillout music. I also enjoy classical, jazz, and folk music (like Irish jigs!). Anything upbeat that helps my brain forget my problems.
