How about Erik Satie's gymnopedies and gnossiennes?
Simple and extremely melancholic piano pieces.

Here is a link to the first gymnopedie.

If you like it you should listen to the others, most of them are equally melancholic.

Depends on if I want to feel melancholy(like if I'm writing a sad story or drawing a sad picture)or if I want to feel happier again.

If I want to feel sad then maybe something like Nocturne in E flat. That piece kills me.

If I want to feel happy then maybe something like Bach's Cello Suite No. 1.
Or possibly Canon in D.

If I'm sad, I usually listen to sad music (I know that makes no sense) XD But yeah, I listen to Bach's Ciaconna from his Partita No. 2 in d-minor for unaccompanied violin. Or I listen to Walton's or Gubaidalina's Viola concerto (although that one's more creepy than sad).

Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings is timeless. The fourth movement from Mahler's 5th symphony is also very emotional:
