Needless to say, the mood a song conjures up differs from person to person. These are my own views and interpretations. I'll share my own selection of songs in the next post.
>Alchemist - ArrivalQuite good. Has a very confident, triumphant feel to it, as well as the vibe of a new dawn.
>Lettuce - The ForceQuite good. Slightly less 'muscular', but more joyful than the previous, with more of a mood that puts emphasis on the journey that led to the triumph, if that makes sense?
>Rjd2 - GhostwriterNot a bad tune, but didn't conjure up any feelings of succes at first. To me, the beginning (up until roughly the 1:30 mark) has more of a slightly melancholic, reminiscent or reflective feel to it. Something a Hollywood film would use to score some lightweight drinker with a regretful hangover. Then it picks up and for a while it does exude an atmosphere of victory-related elation.
>Good As Hell (Vintage '20s Style Lizzo Cover) feat. Ashley StroudI have a particular dislike for "quirky" covers of contemporary songs done in old-fashiony styles. So, with all the bias in the world, I say: awful and entirely not triumphant. Would rather listen to a hairdryer.
>Street Fighter Alpha 2 Sakura ThemeQuite gaudy and kitsch-sounding, which is to be expected of a videogame soundtrack. Not terrible, though and definitely has an air of having overcome a hurdle.
>The Stone Roses - I Am the ResurrectionQuite good, but I don't pick up any triumph vibes. It has a carefree, gleeful feel to it, though, which I suppose can be considered a victory in certain situations. The airy quality to it give off a vibe of new beginnings, as well.
>Talking Heads - Pulled UpQuite good. The guitar play which starts at 0:38 has a very irresistible feel-good factor to it. I'd place this more in the self-assuring category than victorious. However, it does have an "unshackled" undertone which can be considered triumphant.
>No Retreat,No Surrender - Hold On To The VisionSounds like the soundtrack to the montage segment of every 1980's action film. Don't particularly care for it, though I can see why this would embolden you (but only if you are sporting a mullet and have fanny pack with grenades in it wrapped round your waist).
>Pete Seeger - Tomorrow is a HighwayI'm picking up a little too much mournful, pensive tones to feel any victorious or triumphant moods. However, it does have an inspirational quality to it.
>Van Der Graaf Generator - Childlike Faith In Childhood's EndIt takes two minutes to kick in, but when it does it emits a bold, conquering atmosphere. I imagine this would work well in a dystopian setting where society has crumbled and mankind is ruled by marauding gangs of butch lesbians who have enslaved the handful of straight hot chicks left on the planet for breeding purposes. At night they go out and hunt down the smattering of virile men who survived the apocalypse and capture them to reproduce with the enslaved hot chicks. This song would play as I escape the clutches of the evil lesbiotronics and dwell the desert, thinking of all the hot poon tang I was forced to fornicate with. This moment inspires me to return to the caves where the nasty lesbians live and blow up their evil empire and free all the hot poon tang, after which I singlehandedly repopulate the world back to its 2020 population and an Eifel-tower size statue of my penis is erected (pun intended) to never forget what happened.
>Fear Not This Night - Asja KadricFlat, tedious, predictable. Sounds like it could have ended up mid-table on Eurovision. Would rather listen to a washing machine filled with bricks.
>The Velvet Underground - I'm Set FreeA little too delicate and sentimental to be considered as having a victorious or triumphant atmosphere.
>The 13th Floor Elevators - Thru The RhythmQuality song. However, I find it has more a frenetic, rousing atmosphere to it than one of victory. Definitely a great song if you need stimulating.
>Procol Harum - Quite Rightly SoDefinitely feeling this one. Has that distinct feel of elation and delight to it that one associates with a success.
>Love - You Set the SceneI love Love, but I find this works better as a breezy anthem for the insouciant, cheerful attitude one feels when life isn't kicking you in the testicles and you feel a wave of optimism and joy and opportunity flow through your veins.
>21 years of 3rd StrikeWhen this started playing I switched back to the tab because I thought a horrible advert for some sort of hi-tech sports shoe had started playing. Turns out it was the song. Not a fan, though I understand why people would feel triumphant listening to this. Personally, I'd rather listen to a thousands frogs being burnt alive.
>Adam York - Yakety SaxI would rather stick my head in the anus of an African elephant than ever listen to this again. A for awful. You should have at least gone for the original, buddy.
