As cliché as it sounds, music has always been a passion of mine. I took piano and singing lessons as a child and even went on to study music and music technology at school and university. So I’ve always loved music and my personal taste has always been rather eclectic. And with it being another dreary start to the week, I thought to share my good mood music playlist! So listen on for songs guaranteed to perk you up on your morning commute or even when you’re already in the office.
Best Old School Tracks To Put You In A Good Mood
Sometimes you just can’t beat a classic. I personally love me some Reggae or R’n’B such as:
“Three Little Birds” by Bob Marley & The Wailers
“Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Marvin Gaye
“Superstition” by Stevie Wonder
“Stand By Me” by Ben E. King
Best Divas To Get You Dancing
When it comes to Divas, there’s really only one – Beyoncé. But I’ve listed a few other of my favourites to make it fair.
“Love On Top” and “Drunk in Love” by Beyoncé
“Send My Love (To Your New Lover)” by Adele
“The Greatest” by Sia
“Girl on Fire” by Alicia Keys
“Fighter” by Christina Aguilera
Fun fact: my obsession for Beyoncé is so extreme, I once travelled 10 hours (by coach) to Paris to see her in concert!
Best Chart Tracks To Start Your Day
There are some great pop, dance and even grime artists rocking the UK charts right now. Grime is also making waves stateside, with artists like Drake bringing Grime inspo to his work. So it’s no wonder it’s increased popularity has helped make it’s way into the charts.
“Blem” by Drake
“Symphony” by Clean Bandit ft. Zara Larsson
“Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran
“IDGAF” by Dua Lipa
“Rockstar” by Post Malone , 21 Savage
Music has always been a positive outlet for me. Whether I was playing an instrument, listening to a new album or even live at a gig. I always enjoy discovering new music, bands and artists. But nothing beats listening to some positive tunes to get you going on that cold, rainy commute to the office.
Even though I have an iPhone, I don’t actually use Apple Music and usually stream via Spotify. But I still invest in physical albums from my favourite artists, buying either CD or Vinyl. I’ve also got some old school vinyls from my parents that I’ve inherited, alongside my new ones, I’m racking up a nice collection.
Do you have any favourite tracks to get you in a good mood? What do you listen to on the train or at work?
