Music is a major part of life and an average person listens to music on a daily basis. Be it on your way to work or college, from intense workout sessions at the gym to the last activity of your day before you sleep. It is that not-so-silent companion of the day. Ever so often we find some songs echoing our thoughts and feelings while some songs have that instant rhythm in them to uplift your mood and make you feel better and your day a little brighter.
Let’s take a look at some songs that can instantly ignite that feeling of joy and positivity in you:
Love you zindagi- Dear Zindagi
“Jo dil na lage
Use keh do HI HI HI
Jo dil na lage
Use keh do Bye Bye Bye”
This song has the power to immediately turn your day around. It highlights the importance of prioritising in your life. You should not have to do something you don’t want to do and follow your heart.
Imagine- John Lennon
“You say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one”
Classics are classics for a reason. Even though the song was written as early as 1971 it is relevant even today. So who cares if you’re a dreamer and love making sandcastles in the air? As long as it is constructive, we suggest go ahead.
Happy- Pharrell Williams
“Huh, because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy”
We’ve all grown up to a slightly different version of this song but Pharrell Williams just made it relatable again. This song works on so many levels to make you feel better and if it doesn’t make you get up and dance, give it another hearing.
Sooraj ki baahon mein- Zindagi na Milegi Dobara
“Sooraj Ki Baahon Mein, Ab Hai Yeh Zindagi
Kirnay Hain Saanson Mein, Baaton Mein Roshni”
I get it when you say you’re not a morning person, I’m not either. Not everyone wakes up ready to conquer the world but this song is sure to get you there. The singers transport you to a sunny day and the music is the perfect cherry on the cake to make you feel better.
PS: The choreography of the song is the perfect jam for you and your friends.
Don’t worry be happy- Bob Marley
“In every life, we have some trouble
When you worry you make it double
Don’t worry be happy…”
Let’s face it Bob Marley can never go wrong and we have to listen to what he has to say in that bluesy voice of his. But he has a point you know, what’s the point of worrying? It’s not going to get you anywhere. Yogis say as long as the stress is below the neck it is fine but the second it moves upwards, you need to take a step back. So where’s your stress driving?
Congratulations- Post Malone ft. Quavo
“I dreamed it all ever since I was young
They said I wouldn’t be nothing
Now they always say congratulations”
This one’s for all the rap lovers out there. If you think Jay Z and Kendrick Lamar are your spirit animals, looks like Post Malone is next on the list. For all those dreaming of driving a Jaguar to work one day, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Listen to what Malone has to say,
“They was never friendly, yeah
Now I’m jumping out the Bentley, yeah”
Don’t you worry child- Swedish House Mafia
“I still remember how it all changed
My father said
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry child
See heaven’s got a plan for you”
Don’t for a second think that we forgot EDM lovers. And even if you’re not, this song is a sure shot stairway to instant therapy. Nothing is the end of the world and know that the tide will turn and you will see the sun again.
I will survive- Gloria Gaynor
“At first I was afraid, I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side
But then I spent so many nights thinking how you did me wrong
And I grew strong”
We know we are all going to survive the harsh realities but sometimes we all need a little reassurance and to some extent some validation as well. And if you’re a F.R.I.E.N.D.S. fan, just remember Chandler singing this song in a helium voice, that is sure to do the trick uplift your mood.
Counting Stars- One Republic
“Seek it out and ye shall find
The old, but I’m not that old
Young, but I’m not that bold
And I don’t think the world is sold”
This coming-of-age song is the perfect addition to the playlist. This song makes you take a walk down your reflective lane, the uplifting music strikes an instant chord to make you feel more positive. It doesn’t just hark back to the past but also gears you up for your future.
Roar- Katy Perry
“You hear my voice, you hear that sound
Like thunder, gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready ’cause I had enough”
No. This is not a song for only women. Katy Perry in her female Tarzan costume restores hope and gives you back that lost courage to get back up on your feet and conquer your dreams.”
Well, the list can go on and on. It’s safe to say that there is a nugget of wisdom in each one of these songs that can strike a chord with you. Regardless of whether its dying will-power, the fear of change or just ‘living in the moment’, these subjects are capable of affecting all of us. So the next time you’re looking for that light at the end of a tunnel, just give these tunes a listen!
