If you’re in need of an instant mood booster, there’s nothing like music. Why do you think music therapy is a thing? Tunes have healing power. In addition to the innate ability of music to work wonders for body, mind and spirit, upbeat jams just make you feel GOOD.
Even in the age of Spotify and iTunes, how awesome is it when your favorite song comes on the radio? Best feeling ever.
So, here are 10 happy songs to brighten your mood rightthisminute (WARNING: this list spans many genres. If you’re not open-minded about music, you might hate it.).
Top of the post, YouTube videos for your enjoyment. Bottom of the post, the straight list. Enjoy. (P.S. I highly recommend freestyle dancing to these tunes. In your living room, on a street corner, in your car — whatever. Because we could all use more dance time.)
