Could be triumph over adversity, or, less dramatically, just "things totally sucked, now they don't suck nearly as much, yay!" Looking for generally upbeat in tone. The "things sucked prior" part doesn't necessarily have to be explicit in the song, I just want something you'd listen to when you get that feeling. Just as a brain-nudge, songs that might come to mind for me in answer to this question would be Wintersleep -- Weighty Ghost; Erin McKeown -- Born to Hum; Sleater-Kinney -- Everything*. Thanks all!
