Don’t think, don’t judge, don’t hate. Just enjoy these songs on the pure basis that they are fun and will make you happy.
Feeling down and need a boost? Need to get some energy? Adding to a running playlist? Just want to smile?
Well babycakes, have I got some songs for you!
1.) Don’t Call Me Madam by Olivia Ruiz
This spunky little tune always makes me feel better. Kind of beachy, kind of swing, and kind of pop. Its just great fun. Great song for in the shower when you just need to have a little pick me up. (go back and look at an earlier post called The Anti-Craziness Shower. This would be a great song for an Anti-Craziness Shower)

Ok Stop right there! I hear the moaning and groaning already! I know I know, you think this song was overplayed and annoying and you think that every annoying twat in the world likes this song BUT IT IS SOOO MUCH FUN! It really is! Just enjoy it because it seriously is amazing and a shit ton of fun!

3.) Doctor Jones by Aqua
There is only one thing better than Barbie Girl…. and that is Doctor Jones. Fun and bubbly song and fun music video (if you ever wonder where Katy Perry got the idea for the Roar video… it was probably Doctor Jones)

4.) Beauty In The World by Macy Gray
By far the best Macy Gray song ever. Fun, happy, optimistic, and soothing. When life gives you a sunburn, this song is the sweet sweet aloe to sooth the burns. You go Macy!

5.) SUPERMODEL by Jill Sobule
Yes, its “That song from Clueless“. But its sooooo much more! The music video is hilarious and ends in amazing Carrie-esque fashion. The song is fast-paced and fun. its everything you need on a down day…. plus, for real guys… it was the song from Clueless, like how totally perfect!
6.) Studio Hair Gel by Barcelona
Ok, Challenge. Play this song and try not to be happy and just want to get up and dance… I hate to say it, but I’m pretty sure that if this song doesn’t get you going, you’re soul has probably been lost long ago. Barcelona has tons of great songs. Try I Have The Password To Your Shell Account, and Everything Makes Me Think About Sex as well.

7.) One Big Love by Patty Griffin
Sunny day? Pull out the lawn chair, grab the ice tea, put this song on and get the hell outside! This is by far one of the ultimate summer songs for me. It is just pure perfection.

8.) Hello Seattle by Owl City
Ah, Seattle. One of the most beautiful cities I have ever been to. This is one of my favorite destination songs. Not to mention there is a shout out in it to my favorite animal, the Albatross. Its fun, its upbeat, and its got really great and fun imagery.

8.) See The Sun by Dido
I have literally cried to this song. its just so good. SO SO SO GOOD. Basically, this person loses the love of their life and Dido is the friend who comes over to help them get back to life again. I don’t know.. maybe its the idea of having a friend who would be there for me during a loss, or how beautifully the song is compose, or the lyrical imagery. I just find this song to be amazing and uplifting.
