2. Country

Country music is brilliant. There's the country music that can lift you up and there's the country music than can make you feel lower than you felt before you put it on! In fact, an interesting article from the 1990s, actually explored the effect of country music on suicide rates and the study showed that the more airtime devoted to country music, the greater the suicide rate...Perhaps don't listen to it when you're feeling too low. With its origins in folk music, gospel and blues, (to name but a few genres of influence) country music is more popular now than ever with shows like Nashville and young and glamorous entertainers such as Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood bringing country music to the forefront of people's imagination again.
