We all have days like that. Sucks, doesn't it?
But what seems to help me in the morning is a good song. I think it's the best pick me up you can find. A good song lifts up my spirits, calms me down and gets me ready for the day. It mellows me out and talks to me. It's never too busy or in it's own funky mood like people get. These songs are good friends to me.
I was in that funky mood today and after a few good songs it was like a fresh restart. I thought I would share some of those with you. These are my personal happy songs, not found on some chart or list online based on what is cool right now. Some of these you may have never heard on the radio.
Hey Mama by Mat Kearney
This song is just happiness in a bottle. It's upbeat and peppy and so far I love all of this album I have heard.
American Girl by Tom Petty
If you don't love one song from Tom Petty (even if it's not this one), we just can't be friends.
It's classic, simple and good. Enough said. And it talks to all us girls that don't have blue eyes. Mine are hazel, but close enough!
Restless Heart by Matt Hires
When I first heard this song I could not get enough of it. It's still wonderful and it's been over a year.
Brave by Sarah Bareilles
This is a new happy song. It is empowering and strong. It will knock the bad feelings out.
I don't wanna be by Gavin Degraw
This is just about being who you are. Sometimes if you focus more on being you, that morning stress caused by others just melts away.
Sweetness by Jimmy Eat World
It might be the guitar that wakes me up. It is so full of energy and then add to it that great outcry of Wooooooah!
Have you got any favorite Happy songs? And, no I don't mean anything by Pharell.
