If you know me personally then you may know I’m in love with music. I feel that music connects people in a way that communication cannot. Feeling happy? Listen to music. Feeling down? Listen to music.
Music for me has always been an escape route. I connected with music from a very young age. My dad has a brilliant taste in music and he is definitely where I picked it up from. He introduced me to so many different bands and musicians. Such as The Beatles, David Bowie, Prince, Dire Straits, Pink Floyd, Creedence Clearwater Revival.. The list goes on for days. Or even years.
My music taste can vary. One day I could be listening to Etta James and the next day I could be listening to Miley Cyrus. There’s no boundaries when it comes to music.
Anyway, I’ll be doing more posts about Music but for now, here’s my top 10 Songs I listen to when I’m happy. Or when I need a bit of a lift. In no particular order –
1. David Bowie – Rebel Rebel
2. Rusted Root – Send Me On My Way
3. Chuck Berry – You Never Can Tell
4. Toto – Africa
5. Billy Idol – Dancing With Myself
6. Walking On Sunshine
7. Paolo Nutini – New Shoes
8. Florence + The Machine – Shake It Out
9. The Killers – Mr Brightside
10. Stereophonics – Dakota
All of these songs have a different meaning and connection with me but all of them do the job. After listening to these songs I always get a boost to get up again and do something. Or if not, it just makes me feel a little bit more comfortable.
If you haven’t yet listened to some of these songs or heard of the artists. Please check them out below! I have created a playlist on my Spotify so you can all check the songs out. I am pretty confident in saying that you will not be disappointed.
Thanks for reading and happy listening!
