The way of saying "cheer up you'll get over it" is translated in Italian “Canta che ti passa” (Sing and you’ll get over it). It is very common in colloquial Italian language because, as we know,  music has always had a positive effect on the way we feel and behave. The first who used this optimistic expression was an anonymous soldier during the First World War. He carved "Canta che ti passa" on a rock to give courage to other soldiers.
