10 Fun Sound Sites

The internet can be a wonderful tool in aiding depression. Positive messages, beautiful pictures, or laugh out loud jokes can be great distractions.

Isn't it amazing how sound can affect our mood? A favorite song from childhood can fill you with nostalgia. The beat of a popular dance tune can transport you to another place. And the hypnotic sound of drizzling rain can soothe a troubled mind.

The following websites use audio to affect your mood. Whether you're in the mood to laugh or cry, I'm sure you will find what you need in the comprehensive list below.
