* In ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', while Kyousuke is in hospital with an injured hand, Sayaka tries to cheer him up by getting him to listen to classical music. It has the opposite effect, because it reminds him that he can't play the violin any more. Later in the series, when [[spoiler:Sayaka becomes a witch out of despair after realising she can never be with Kyousuke, she has her familiars (who look like him) play music for her.]]

-->'''Danny T:''' Girl, music has the power to life you up when you're feelin' low. [[WellThisIsNotThatTrope But not this music.]] This music is a major downer.

* Davy Jones' music box, [[NostalgicMusicBox a memento of his long-lost love]], is like this in ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean''. The melody can lull him into sleep or drive him to tears. The aforementioned long-lost love also has one, and it seems to have the same function for her.

* In the ''LonelyWerewolfGirl'' books, Kalix likes to listen to the ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Runaways Runaways]]'' loudly when she is depressed or angsty (which is to say, often). Daniel does much the same with his Goth/Death Metal music whenever he feels angry or frustrated with Moonglow (again, often).

* The 1989 Tony Danza vehicle ''She's Out Of Control'' had the teen protagonist lock herself in her room playing her music at full volume after a fight with her father and a breakup with her boyfriend. When one of her friends comes looking for her, she is directed "up the stairs, follow the sad music".
