10 more songs to listen to when you’re sad

I found several more happy songs that I want to share in a new post. My last one was written a long time ago (I forgot to publish it) and several of my favorite songs didn’t make it because they hadn’t come out yet.

Song #1: ‘Uptown Funk’ by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars

This is a very upbeat, happy song. I’m really into it. I think just about everyone is. I just wish it didn’t have any bad language though.

Song #2: ‘Shut Up and Dance’ by Walk the Moon

I can’t help but get excited whenever I hear this song. It makes me grin and want to dance.

Song #3: ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’ by Marvin Gaye

This one is pretty peppy. It was suggested to me by someone. I don’t listen to it much, but it’s good.

Song #4: ‘When Can I See You Again’ by Owl City

This song is such a fun, catchy tune. I love it so much.

Song #5: ‘Happy’ by Pharrell Williams

Don’t pretend you didn’t see this one coming.

Song #6: ‘Twist and Shout’ by The Beatles

Suggested to me by a friend, it really is pretty peppy.

Song #7: ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey

It starts off slow, but ends up being amazingly catchy and upbeat by the end.

Song #8: ‘Roar’ by Katy Perry

You can’t deny how peppy it is. It’s got a pretty good beat too.

Song #9: ‘Mean’ by Taylor Swift

Not the peppiest song on the list, but it’s a good message to remember if bullies have you down.

Song #10: ‘Better Things’ by The Kinks

Recommended by a friend, it really is pretty upbeat. Inspirational too.

You can find part 1 here.


10 songs to listen to when you’re sad

These aren’t all necessarily uplifting in their message, but they’re bouncy, fun, catchy songs that I just can’t help but feel happy during, and maybe it’ll be the same for someone else.

SONG #1: ‘Good to be Alive’ by Skillet

This is a song I can’t help but like. It never fails to cheer me up–even when I’m already in high spirits. It’s a fun song to bob your head to.

SONG #2: ‘Zip-a-Dee-do-Dah’ from Disney’s ‘Song of the South’

This is just a cute song all around. I’ve included two versions, one with the original, one with a more modern, peppy feel to it.

SONG #3: ‘Me Without You’ by tobyMac

I love this song. It’s so upbeat and makes you want to bob your head.

SONG #4: ‘Istanbul (Not Constantinople)’

I’m not sure on who sang the original, but I like the version I included (by Jimmy Kennedy and Nat Simon), mostly because the video lines up with it, even though they’re completely unrelated (and the video is actually in German!).

SONG #5: ‘Everybody Talks’ by Neon Trees

This is a song I just want to dance to whenever I hear it. It’s so darn catchy.

SONG #6: ‘Sweeter than Fiction’ by Taylor Swift

This is such a sweet song. I’ll let you look up the backstory for yourself, but it’s a good one.

SONG #7: ‘Dance Forever’ by Allstar Weekend

This is just a song it’s way too tempting to bob my head to–and that’s when I’m around people. Not even including what I’d do if I was alone.

SONG #8: ‘The Safety Dance’ by Men Without Hats

It’s just one of those songs that’s got a peppy beat and you want to dance around a little.

SONG #9: ‘I Ran Over the Taco Bell Dog’ by Weird Al

It’s short but hilarious.

SONG #10: ‘Walking on Sunshine’ by Katrina & the Waves

I’ve never known anyone who can stay sad during this song. Ever. I dare you to prove me wrong.
