Susan Silver again brings us a fantabulously cheery post to mark our second installment in The Happy Friday Series. She shares the top five cheery songs to change your mood, and let’s see which ones she picks.
Susan Silver Says:
I have always been a pretty empathic kid, which means that I often internalize the emotions of the world around me. When the dark clouds start gathering, there is a friend who will always comfort me. I simply turn to the nearest internet radio and play my feel good playlist. These are my Top 6 in no particular order. You only need a hit of one of these to get you through the dreariest of days.
You Might Just be the One – The Monkees
I was initiated at a young age and this song has remained a favorite ever since.
I Love You More Today than Yesterday – Spiral Staircase
I can never get this song out of my head when I hear it on the radio, but the truth is I don’t want to.
Listen to the Music- Doobie Brothers
I started listening to a greatest hits album on Spotify and become hooked on their unique sound.
Commandante – Mountain Goats
This comes from John Darnielle’s Lofi period when he couldn’t afford to record in a studio.
Late in the Evening – Simon and Garfunkel
From the concert in Central Park, the album I grew up with.
Sure, these are not represented by many modern songs nor do they represent how diverse people’s tastes really are. I chose these songs because they have universal appeal. The positive energy drips from the musical notes and gives you a fine injection of positivity. The next time you are feeling rundown, close your eyes and drift away on a song.
What does your feel good playlist look like?
