1. “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” – Israel Kamakawiwoʻole

High above the chimney tops
That’s where you’ll find me.”

 This is the perfect feel-good song for a rough day. The acoustic strings and Israel’s happy voice will pick you up from any crummy mood!


2. “What a Wonderful World” – Louis Armstrong

“I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day and the dark sacred night
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world.”

Ever thought the world is conspiring against you? Restore your faith in humanity (and yourself) with the soulful jazz tones and wonderful baritone of Louis’ greatest hit.



3. “Hey Soul Sister” – Train

“You see, I can be myself
now finally, in fact
there’s nothing I can’t be.”

Get up and dance away your blues with the happiest tune this year!


4. “Count on Me” – Bruno Mars

“If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea
I’ll sail the world to find you
If you ever find yourself lost in the dark and you can’t see
I’ll be the light to guide you.”

We are firm believers in the healing powers of Bruno Mars’ voice. There is not a single soul who can be sad whilst listening to this album, but if we HAD to choose one song to brighten your world, well, you can count on this one!


5. “Hakuna Matata” – Disney

“It means no worries for the rest of your days
It’s our problem free

Remember when you were a kid and life had no worries?  Well, go back to your carefree days of youth with Timon, Pumba and the latest animation by Disney.


6. “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” – Marvin Gaye

“No wind, no rain
Or winters cold can stop me baby, no no baby
‘Cause you are my goal
If you’re ever in trouble;
I’ll be there on the double.”

If you haven’t heard this inspirational ballad yet, we would ask you to take a nice, hard look at your life. Marvin Gaye takes a break from his signature sensual style to motivate you to scale every mountain and achieve dreams.

7. “Reality” – Lost Frequencies

“Make me feel the warm, make me feel the cold
It’s written in our story, it’s written on the walls
This is our call, we rise and we fall
Dancin’ in the moonlight, don’t we have it all?”

Embrace your inner hipster with this impeccably happy-soulful tune. Go dance in the moonlight NOW!



8. “Listen to the Man” – George Ezra

“Your world keeps spinning and you can’t jump off
But I will catch you if you fall, I can’t tell you enough.”

Even Sir Ian McKellan agrees with our pick here and there’s not much Gandalf gets wrong. George Ezra will sweep you off your feet with his deeply mesmerizing baritone in this song.


9. “A Sky Full of Stars” – Coldplay

“Go on and tear me apart
I don’t care if you do
Cause in a sky, a sky full of stars
I think I see you.”

This is the band that literally promised to ‘Fix You’. And if anything is to fix your bad day, it is this burst of energy the song will bring. Also, the carnivalesque video is sure to bring you a smile.



10. “Counting Stars” – One Republic

“In my faces flashing suns
Seek it out and ye shall find.”

If you’re the kind who looks for angsty-happy tunes, look no further. One Republic hits the perfect combination between ‘go get the stars!’ and ‘we’re too cool for school’ with this one.



11. “Sweet Home Alabama” – Lynyrd Skynyrd

“Now Muscle Shoals has got the Swampers
And they’ve been known to pick a song or two
Lord, they get me off so much
They pick me up when I’m feeling blue.”

Classic, old-school, country tunes for those who like to sit back and think of the good ol’ days.



12. “The Times They Are A-Changin” – Bob Dylan

“And there’s no telling who that it’s naming
For loser now will be later to win.”

The world may go round and round but nothing will change our love for this song.



13. “Beautiful Day” – U2

“It’s a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
It’s a beautiful day
Don’t let it get away.”

Dark, gloomy weather got you down? Let U2 make things better by telling you just how beautiful a day it could be.



15. “My Favorite Things” – The Sound of Music

“Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things”

When the dog bites, when the bee stings/When I’m feeling sad/I simply remember my favorite things/And then I don’t feel so bad.

‘Nuff said.


14. “All My Loving” – The Beatles

“And I’ll send all my loving to you.”

The Beatles are a gift to humanity and this song will bring you up from any low day. With upbeat vocals and lyrics to lift your heart, give this one a try if nothing else feels right.
