Music is magical people. I'm serious. It never fails to change my mood. The music I typically listen to everyday is not mainstream, but every once in a while I get into a mood where I just need some happy jams, and I switch it up for a day. So let's not confuse this list as one of my favorite songs, they aren't necessarily my favorite, but they never fail to make me smile. So whether you're having a solo dance party in an empty house, or cruising back roads with the windows down, sometimes you really just need to belt out lyrics like no other, and these are some of the songs I choose in those moments.
1. Cecilia and the Satellite - Andrew McMahon In the Wilderness
This is my favorite one at the moment. I listen to it when I get ready in the mornings. I'm really not sure why, but it always lightens my mood and makes me want to really live a little!
2. Marvin Gaye - Charlie Puth
This is just a great song to blast and sing your little heart out. It just makes you feel good!
3. John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16
You know, the John song
4. Shut Up and Dance - Walk the Moon
Funny story about this one; for the most part, this list will change within the next few months. My "happy songs" come in phases. (Don't worry I'll keep you guys updated ) This song came out towards the end of my senior year of high school and I instantly loved it. It is one of the only songs that has stuck around for this long, and it still has yet to get old! One of my favorite dance songs!
5. Summer Girl - Leighton Meester
If you haven't heard this one girls, listen to it. Now. It is such a feel good song, it makes me feel very empowered.
6. Sweet Serendipity - Lee DeWyze
Another confidence booster. This is one that definitely makes me feel like I can do absolutely anything.
7. Boomerang - The Summer Set
Check out this band, a lot of their songs are fun! This is just one of my favorites :)
8. Best Day of My Life - American Authors
Really no explanation needed, the title says it all.
9. Dancing Queen - Abba
I was a dancer for 15+ years. This has always been such a fitting song for me, and come on, we're all dancing queens at heart aren't we?
10. Beautiful Day - Michael Buble
This was my alarm the entire summer before junior year, and nothing could've started the day on a better note.
So these are my ten go-to's at the moment!
