On a bad day, all it takes is one song to make everything better or wallow in self-pitying misery, and the 'Emotional Bag Check' website lets you do both.

Think of it as a social networking site for your mood. The site's slogan states "Secretly a Music Site," and that's exactly what it is. After logging in, you simply share with others how you're feeling and users will recommend songs for your mood.

The Emotional Bag Check website is actually quite a friendly concept. Users can also recommend songs to people with the 'Carry It' option that states, "I'm really loving life right now...let me lighten your load."

In the 'Check It' option, the site encourages you to "[t]ake a minute to unload whatever’s been bringing you down. Big or small, doesn’t matter. Sometimes it just helps to get it out there and know someone heard it." Stats for Good Samaritan Song Suggestions Trending: Older & Chilly
