Best Songs can be anything that puts you in a good mood, makes all of your stress melt away and just makes you sing along. I listen to everything from country (don't laugh – it's only sometimes and only by myself) all the way to rap (I heart Eminem – come on, his best songs are better than most!) and all of it changes my mood. Below, I'm gonna talk about some of the best songs that have gotten me through some of the worst days!
1. Pocketful of Sunshine by Natasha Bedingfield
Easy A is honestly one of my favorite movies. Darling little Emma Stone – she's beautiful, witty and I love her characters in everything she does! She coined this song in Easy A and I love her for it! This is easily one of the best songs that get me in the mood to conquer the world and take on anything that hits me. Am I getting yelled at for 20 minutes by a Bridezilla? Take me away to better days – that line works every single time!
2. Inside out by Eve 6
Eve 6 is old-school right? I love them though! They are honestly one of the few punk bands that I still listen to all of the time and this song – oh, it still gives me chills every single time I hear it! I love the lyrics, love the tone and I love Max Collins. Even though they broke up – I'll always have a special place in my heart for this song and it always gets me in a great mood!
3. Lucky by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat
So I'm a Gleek. Kill me right? For all of you that don't watch Glee, first – I pity you, second, you should 'cause this song that Sam and Quinn redid was amazing! Personally though, I love the original version from Colbie Caillat and Jason Mraz. This song, it makes me think of, a field of daisies with Jason and Colbie singing to each other. It puts me in a spectacular mood every time I hear it!
4. Moves like Jagger by Maroon 5 Ft. Christina Aguilera
There is one thing that you should know about me – I am in love with Adam Levine. That being said, a girl in my office (who shall remain nameless but she knows who she is!) and I have a dance party to Moves like Jagger every single morning (no … seriously, we do … it's embarrassing and the youtube video will be out at a later date). It's a great song to get your day started right and I promise, whenever I am feeling down, this is a great pick-me-up!
5. Affirmation by Savage Garden
When this band broke up, it was honestly the saddest day in the world for me. I love Savage Garden but specifically, I love this song. Everything that the song says is true: the sun should never set on an argument, beauty magazines promote low self esteem, the grass is no more greener on the other side. These are just three lines out of a song that is honestly, so true, so honest and so raw. It's great for a bad and a good day!
6. Love Game by Lady Gaga
I love Lady Gaga – however, I love the old LG. The Fame and The Fame Monster were her glory days in my mind and I absolutely love Love Game. This song makes me get up and dance every single time I hear it! I swear, it's one of her best songs and have you seen the video? The dance moves are sick!
7. Animal by Neon Trees
The Neon Trees are a band that I hadn't heard of until they redid this song on Glee (I know – horrible right?). This song though, full of everything that I want out of a song. It's got a great beat, a kickass lead singer and I love the words! I think by far, this is one of the best songs by Neon Trees!
8. E.T by Katy Perry Ft. Kanye West
Oh little Katy Perry, she's made quite a come back hasn't she? I remember when 'I Kissed a Girl' came out and everyone thought she was a little weird. Now though, she's topping the charts and this song – oh, this song brightens up my day every time I hear it. I love the first line by Kanye, the beat and the sick lyrics. It's a keeper on my iPod playlist!
9. Empire State of Mind by Jay Z Ft. Alicia Keys
New York City is one of my favorite cities in the world. Just thinking about moving there, thinking about living there and thinking about all of the fashion and beauty there puts me in a great mood! Empire State of Mind evokes everything I love about New York City in a song! It's Sex and the City meets rap – a friggin' great combination!
10. I'm Yours by Jason Mraz
Wouldn't you want Jason Mraz claiming himself as yours every single day? I do, that's the reason why this is at the top of my play list. I love his folky voice that seems to speak just to me. He brightens my work day every single day and makes me feel better instantly!
Music is in my veins and in my blood, I love it. There are best songs for any mood and any type of day. Some of the best songs on my playlist right now, pull me up and bring me out of a bad mood instantly, which in my line of work, I need on a regular basis. I'm dying to know though, what songs brighten your day and can pull you up when the world feels like it's about to crash?
