Songs that put me in an instant Good Mood

One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to “Find 5 songs that will put me in a good mood, instantly” and be able to have access to them wherever I am, so that I could have a “switch” to lift my mood within minutes if I happen to get a little sensitive or negative about life’s little tests.

I’m not talking about my “fave” songs, but tunes that can make me crack a smile or get me up and moving, no matter how I might be feeling :)

Here’s the list I came up with so far:

  • Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke (Lyrics are a little dodgy but love the beat!)1
  • Swing (Joel Fletcher Remix) by Savage and Joel Fletcher2
  • Fuck You by Cee Lo Green (Love this song, so groovy)3
  • One More Night by Maroon 54
  • Shooting Stars by Bag Raiders (because it instantly reminds me of the #SaltyRain performance which gets me smiling immediately)5

Just added these to my ipod as well cos they make me feel good:
