A !%&# day.
We are way too familiar with a day like that. Some days are so horrible that all we want to do is to run home, hide under the covers and sleep the bad feelings away. But being grown-ups, we know that we can't do that and most of us will just have to grit our teeth and endure the rest of the day, then drag our heavy bodies home in hopes of a good night rest.
Last Thursday was a fine example of a !%&# day and we would not have survived the week without our many playlists of uplifting and/or mood boosting songs. We love to sing, not that we are jolly good at it, but that's okay because some songs are just too catchy and contagious to ignore.
In this post, we have selected some of our favourite mood boosting songs to help you get through a rather !%&# work day. Some of the songs below immediately empower us while some are just so bad that we love them. These songs would not solve your problems, but hey, at least your spirits will be lighter, which should help you overcome the obstacles with cheer! So hit the playlist, take a break and sing like never before!
P.S. We at honey&gazelle Design Studio love our throwback songs.
Wilson Phillips - Hold On
"Don't you know things can change, things will go your way, if you hold on for one more day."
Chumbawamba - Tubthumping
"I get knocked down. But I get up again, you're never going to keep me down!"
Aretha Franklin - I Say a Little Prayer
"I say a little prayer for you..."
Monty Python - Always Look on the Bright Side of Life
"When you're chewing on life's gristle, don't grumble, give a whistle and this'll help things turn out for the best... And always look on the bright side of life!
Queen - Under Pressure
"Pressure pushing down on me, pressing down on you, no man ask for."
A1 - Same Old Brand New You
"Another night, another day. What can I say? You're still the same old brand new you."
The Scorpions - Wind of Change
"Take me to the magic of the moment - on a glory night, where the children of tomorrow dream away (dream away) in the wind of change."
Starship - Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now
"And we can build this dream together, standing strong forever, nothing's gonna stop us now!"
We absolutely love these songs and we hope that you do too! Chin up, you can surely overcome the toughest day as long as you keep the cheer in your heart! :)
