The Ultimate Feel Good Songs
 
Hi there,
I host a not for profit radio show and have started a discussion with listeners to select their all time Feel Good songs. Strikes me we need such music at this time. Love to know what classic pop songs you'd select in this category. You can nominate your Top 10 if you like. Here's mine:
That's When The Music Takes Me - Neil Sedaka
You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet - Bachman Turner
You Are The Sunshine Of My Life - Stevie Wonder
We Are The Champions - Queen
Let's Stay Together - Al Green
It's Now Or Never - Elvis Presley
No Regrets - Walker Brothers
Magic - Pilot
Every Little Thing - Police
With A Little Luck - Wings

...what songs make you happy?

These usually will give me one (1) molecule of serotonin (though I also always listen to them when in a chaotic/slightly manic mindframe because I apparently don't ever want to feel TOO good, yknow) :

Spoiler for .:

^ this is my go-to "I haven't slept in 2.5 days and am about to do something very impulsive and stupid right after i finish checking out my cart full of things I don't need on ebay" song.


An obvious choice.


Robyn is also ALWAYS an obvious choice. This one, Dancing On My Own, Honey and Missing U are my favorites.




This whole album (along with circus) because duh. I like to listen to Blackout after I've had a daquiri on a thursday night or something while taking artsy nudes.


I love Charli's newer stuff so much (as well as her very first album). It's PERFECT when you're in a very specific, discombobulated state of being.









I'm sure I've forgotten better/more important ones but oh well.

^ftfy
I had this sneaking suspicion you were holding back on your "feel good" songs so I had to "ftfy" for you. I'm sure these songs definitely turn that "Frown" upside-down. :rolleyes:
