Rock music is basically a hopeful medium, despite all the lyrics about personal woes and the messes and miseries of the world. When we need a boost, nothing is quite as effective as putting on a pounding rock song and joining in the defiant and hopeful chorus. To see what we mean, listen to these anthems of hope: "I Can See Clearly Now" by Johnny Nash, "You Can Make It If You Try" by Sly and the Family Stone, "I Shall Be Released" by Bob Dylan, and "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor Stevens.
