Last weekend, we shared 14 soul-soothing songs: the tracks that lift us up and help tune out all the negative. The Jackson 5, Gladys Knight and Alexi Murdoch trumped our list among 11 other seasoned musicians and groups who've perfected the art of melting away stress with a single, soulful note.

We asked what songs YOU rock when in need of some lightness.

Below are your suggestions. What have we missed? Let us know in the comments section below, on Facebook and @GPSforSoul on twitter (#soulsongs) and we'll keep adding.
