Music for "Tough Times"

When you're feeling lousy, or maybe just had a tough day, what one LP, CD, tape, etc. do you play to make you feel better? In my case it's Cowboy Junkies CD "The Caution Horses". Margo Timmins voice is at once soft and soothing, but also haunting and immediate. This is music that I can get lost in. What music do others use on occasions like this?
I like to match my blue mood and gradually goto something brighter and happier. I start with a slow section of a symphony like Mahler or Bruckner, and end with Mozart to cheer me up.
During the tough times--of which there have been a few lately--I find myself retreating into the music of Badfinger. It's my solace and my shelter.
Dionne Warwick singing thoese Hal David, Burt Bachrach penned tunes from the 60s when Dionne's voice was so so so precious. Also the soundtrack music from the 'RED VIOLIN' and any Lightnin' Hopkins or Sigur Ros lp. In blue times they all help keep me together.
