What? A blog post the very next day after the other one? Yes, I am getting back into the swing of things now so no fear, I am a bad blogger no more. Today I wanted to do something different and make a list of the Top 5 Songs That Make Me Happy. I was prompted to do this while sat in the kitchen of our university block listening to one of my house-mates iPod play-lists and also because, I think everyone can do with some music to cheer them up when life's feeling a bit sucky.
So without further ado, here are my Top 5 Songs That Make Me Happy.
1. New Radicals - You Get What You Give
This song always puts a smile on my face every time I hear it. The lyrics are really uplifting and funny and it's also a really summery song for me too. It's the kind of song that as soon as it starts playing on my MP3 Player I instantly brighten up, I walk taller and faster and I start smiling. Plus it's got one of the best tunes!
2. Royksopp - Happy Up Here
3. Sugar Ray - Into Yesterday
This is a song which always makes me happy. Yes it's from a kid's animated film but I couldn't care less. It's summery, beachy and seriously upbeat. The ultimate happy song in my eyes, or should that be ears?
4. Bad Before Good - Day One
Another great song which I discovered through Skins, the only thing it was worth watching for really was the music, and this one was seriously good. The lyrics and the tune go so well together and it always makes me happy, and it's a great song to get going to. The harmonica is my favourite thing about this song.
5. Robots In Disguise - I'm A Winner
The ultimate happy song. The lyrics are everything in this song. I love RID and their songs are always really varied but this is one of my personal favourites. Great if you need a boost and you're feeling hopeless, useless and low. Stick this on and you'll be back to your old self in no time :)
Enjoy and have a happy weekend!
