Despite all the kidnappings, [[DealWithTheDevil deals with the Devil]] and general abuse, the Music/{{Gorillaz}} are capable of some heartwarming moments.

[[hardline]]

* "On Melancholy Hill". "'Cause you are my medicine, when you're close to me..." The music video that goes with it is a CMOH in itself: [[spoiler:Noodle's under attack by pirates, Murdoc has a PetTheDog moment and takes 2D and the cyborg to save her, and ''everyone'' who collaborated on the album goes with them. [[TearJerker Sadly they don't find her, and they fail to save the manatee]].]]
** At least Russell was able to find Noodle, though.
* Also, "To Binge." He loves a drug addict... but loves her... just loves her. "But I just have to tell you that I love you so much these days... have to tell you that I love you so much these days, it's true."
* "Every Planet We Reach is Dead" from ''Music/DemonDays'' also gives the warm fuzzies...
* Some Kind of Nature (It's Music/LouReed and he sounds ''happy!'') and Don't Get Lost In Heaven from ''Music/DemonDays" definitely count.
* In the otherwise unsettling "Rock It" video, there can be a moment of heartwarming found in that a sleepy Noodle [[PiggybackCute rides on 2D's back]] the entire video. You don't even have to see it as [[ShipTease shipping fuel;]] it really shows the bond between the band members despite [[IntergenerationalFriendship the ages gap.]]
* This clip with Murdoc and 2D. For once, they're actually getting along; Murdoc doesn't attack or even insult 2D. He even compliments him, and the two just happily work together on a song. It's a nice change from the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wnq3nm6ZtNc usual]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhsLyOnsToM hell]] 2D gets in interviews, and pretty heartwarming.
* In the story, there's something sweet about how 2D's dad had the family name [[UnfortunateNames "Tusspot"]] legally shortened to "Pot" before 2D's birth so that his son wouldn't go through the same crap that he did because of it.
* 2D checking up on Noodle in ''[="DoYaThing"=]'', especially the little smile they both get.
** It should also be noted that ever since the "El Maņana" incident, Noodle's life has been pure hell (figuratively and [[IncrediblyLamePun literally.]]) After she had escaped from there, she was almost always violent, angry, hurt, or a combination of all three throughout the Music/PlasticBeach saga. Fast forward to 2012, when we see what the Gorillaz are up to in their new (temporary) home. Noodle only appears briefly in "[=DoYaThing=]," but when we see her, she's taking a [[EarnYourHappyEnding long-deserved rest]] and looks content for the first time in years.
** Also, on a related note, the floating island returns.
** It's the first time we see 2D smile since ''Music/PlasticBeach'' too. [[spoiler: Pity Murdoc hits him with a shoe later.]]
** Also, the sign on her door. Way back in "DARE" she had a "Noodle's Room Keep Out" sign on her room, but in "[=DoYaThing=]" she now has one that reads "Keep In". They're not letting that girl get taken away again.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jvs1sPl67Tg "Highway (Under Construction)"]] from ''D-Sides''. A surprisingly soft and gentle song that sounds like a promise.
* "Empire Ants" off of ''Plastic Beach'' is [[SweetDreamsFuel absolutely beautiful]].
* After Jamie Hewlett posted new artwork on his instagram officially confirming the band's return, the fanbase noted how [[http://instagram.com/p/ytqJHWyvn-/?modal=true everyone]] [[http://instagram.com/p/yfXSDVyvgX/?modal=true appears to be]] [[http://instagram.com/p/ym3KZ-Svl8/?modal=true much]] [[http://instagram.com/p/yfPEvwSvjH/?modal=true happier]] in said artwork. Though we have no idea what the band might be in for, it's a nice thing to see after all they went through in phase 3.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fmJZRt3I9D4 The video played with the live performance of Broken]] has some low-key sweet moments of Noodle and Russel smiling at each other.
