7Just Like a Woman - Bob Dylan

Depressed to "happy"? Do you know this song?
"It was rainin from fhe first and I was shim of thirst so I came in here /. And your long time curse hurts but what's worse is this pain in here / I can't stay in here / Ain't it clear that I just don't fit / I believe it's time for us to quit / When we meet again, introduced as friends / Please don't let on that you knew me when / I was hungry and it was your world /... but she breaks just like a little girl". Joyous! 😜 - Billyv

Well I love the song and it's one of my favorites to sing. And I am happy to hear it but... Maybe the list title should be "songs that make ME happy..."? 😜😹👍🏼 - Billyv

8The Year of the Cat - Al Stewart
9I'd Really Love to See You Tonight - England Dan and John Ford Coley
10Path of Glory - Demons & Wizards

This amazing song is exactly about that - the character turns from depressed to strong and happy.
You can feel that in the music and lyrics.

"So many times it's hopeless, dark and gray
No way out
And other times, it's hope that saves the day"

"The way out
A sea of life so peaceful and serene
The path of life lies open wide for me

Come join the path of glory
Leave all your fear behind" - Metal_Treasure
