10 Songs That Will INSTANTLY Put You In A Good Mood

Because everyone can use a musical pick-me-up once in a while.



In need of a musical pick-me-up? These ten songs should do the trick.

1. Wham! - Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go




"You take the gray skies out of my way / You make the sun shine brighter than Doris Day / Turned a bright spark into a flame / My beats per minute never been the same"

Waking up to this extremely happy-go-lucky Wham! song is the ultimate energizing way to start your day. Even the band's name has an exclamation mark in it!

2. Katrina & the Waves - Walking On Sunshine




"I'm walking on sunshine / And it's starting to feel good, hey"

Walking on sunshine is a great metaphor for feeling on top of your game in the happiness department and this jam from the 80's is like musical sunshine.

3. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis - Thrift Shop



"I'm gonna pop some tags / Only got twenty dollars in my pocket"

Who doesn't love thrift shopping? You can find the most ridiculous, funny things and cool designer threads for cheap all in one store. Thinking of our second-hand store adventures instantly puts us in a good mood.

4. Cake - Short Skirt/Long Jacket




"I want a girl with a mind like a diamond / I want a girl who knows what's best / I want a girl with shoes that cut / And eyes that burn like cigarettes"

We challenge you to watch this music video and not crack a smile: it's impossible!

5. Bruno Mars - The Lazy Song



"I'll be lounging on the couch just chilling in my Snuggie / Click to MTV so they can teach me how to dougie"

Bruno has got chilling down to a science. Snuggies + television = awesome.

6. The Turtles - Happy Together



"I can't see me loving nobody but you for all my life / When you're with me, baby the skies will be blue for all my life"

I can't think of anyone who would find this song anything but happy (aside from these guys, I guess).

7. Barenaked Ladies - One Week




"I summon fish to the dish / Although I like the Chalet Swiss / I like the sushi 'cause it's never touched a frying pan"

These lyrics make very little sense, but somehow put us into a better mood!

8. Deee-Lite - Groove Is In The Heart




"Your groove, I do deeply dig,No walls, only the bridge,My supperdish, my succotash wish"

Is the dancefloor at your party empty? All you need is to turn up to volume and play this amazing song — people will dance.

9. U2 - Beautiful Day




"It's a beautiful day / Don't let it get away / It's a beautiful day"

There's something to be said for lyrical simplicity.

10. Jackson 5 - I Want You Back




"Oh baby, give me one more chance / To show you that I love you / Won't you please let me / Back in your heart"

The Jackson 5 are problably the most happy-go-lucky band to ever exist, and young Michael Jackson had an amazing voice for such a little kid.
