50 Songs to Instantly Put You in a Good Mood

50 Songs to Instantly Put You in a Good Mood


I am a HUGE believer in the power of sound—the power of music. And if I had to guess, I’d bet you are, too. It’s no surprise—music accompanies the events of our lives: birthdays, weddings, funerals, parties, days at home, days spent at coffee shops and other eateries, driving, while working, etc.

But music isn’t just the background of our lives—it invites us to feel something, whether or not it makes us cry or it makes us smile.

Sometimes, though, we really depend on music to make us smile; to inspire our hearts and pump joy into our lives. For that reason, I’ve created a list of the top 50 songs—in no particular order, from Bruce Springsteen to Cardi B—that I believe will instantly put you in a good mood! If you like ‘em and this list helped make your day, let me know in the comments! Want to find these all in one place? You can find this playlist on Spotify under Top 50 Songs for Instant Happiness.
