Uplifting songs

Postby gsb » Sun Apr 15, 2018 12:22 pm

Listening to music makes me feel better at the worst of times. What songs lift your mood? Here are a few of my faves to start the list ....

Tunnel by Third Day
Healing Begins by Tenth Avenue North
Lift Up Your Face by Third Day
Song 2 by Blur (I call it the woo-hoo song)
Tubthumping by Chumbawamba
The Words I Would Say by Sidewalk Prophets
Before the morning by Josh Wilson
The Other side by Colton Dixon (about bereavement *trig*)
Can't keep a good man down by NewSong
Sour Puss by The Mission

There's a variety there, please add to it ...

The Light House Family - Goodbye Heart Break.
the best bit for me is:
Do you remember as a girl,
You had a picture of the world
And you'd think about the great things you would find?
The thing is 9 to 5
And a struggle to survive
Ain't exactly what you had in mind.
But that's the beauty of life,
It takes a while to find,
And you can't have things your own way all the time

Hey, you know you're gonna live
To find another day,
It's just today things ain't so good.
Get yourself back again,
You've got so much love
That you can't afford to lose

Dear gsb,
your post prompted me to go and look up songs that I like. I don't play music much at home, tend to have the talk stations on, however, in the last few days I have had radio 2 on and I must say it has helped to lift my mood a bit.

My husband found me singing along to Natalie Cole singing 'Route 66'.
I love the 60's and 60's music.
and the music of the musicals.

very mood lifting.

I have to say,
'I'm still standing'
has helped my survivie many a depressive episode.
and I think it helps that as well as being an uplifting anthem, Elton kn ows what he
is singing about and can chanel that in the music.

The song Keep smiling, keep shining (will find the official name)
with Elton, Dione Warwick, e.t.c
has helped me along too.

didn't know until now that Elton suffered from depression. maybe that explains his legendary temper and diva like behaviour :) :)

a bit of a cliché but "I will survive" is another uplifter
