12 of My Favorite Feel Good Songs

Happy Monday Morning!

I gotta’ admit – getting back into the swing of the school year and being back in the classroom is a big transition for me. Oh, it’s all going well, but with so many in the house back to school, and one daughter packed up and off to Denmark – it feels as though we have hit the ground running without much space to breathe.

That is until this last weekend. Where I officially took time off  – no school work and no blogging. Nada. Zip. None. Just some time spent at the beach, a nice Sunday nap, time soaking in the hot tub. and a good movie via Netflix. This past weekend was quiet time at it’s best. We all need time to recharge our batteries, and I know that this time spent away from all things work related has served me well.

But now it is Monday morning. Early Monday morning, and I need to get my groove on – so to speak. The best way I know how to start the day is a morning filled with feel good music. You cannot help but smile when you hear these songs! In no particular order, her are:

  1. Lot’s of really fun songs! Great list!

  2. Don’t Stop Believin’ is one of my favorites, this is a really great list, I bet it would almost make me feel excited enough to go on a run!

  3. Who doesn’t love Don’t Stop Believing?!? Love this list and will have to download some that I don’t have!

  4. These are awesome! I think you’ve covered most of my favorites in this post!

  5. Yes, Cyndi Lauper!….Which brings me to “13 going on 30”—a feel good girly movie and a batch of homemade cookies! ha!

  6. Love the song list 🙂 I just took a entire week off from blogging and everything in between, and it was lovely!!

  7. Viva la Vida makes me think of my old job! But it’s such a great song!!

  8. It’s funny that I am seeing this because the other day, my nephew and I were singing ‘Don’t Worry, Be Happy’ and he kept adding ‘Just Be Happy’ into the song. I don’t know why that cracked me up so much, but it did. ‘Dancin’ in the Streets’ is a really fun song to dance to when cleaning.

  9. Cyndi Lauper! I also love Shiny Happy People from REM.

  12. Wow, you picked some really good songs, Stacey! When I am feeling really down or stressed, I pick some fun music to help me get back to a good place. I love these songs and will have to add them to my play list.

  13. Oh how awesome. I hadn’t heard of a few of these but listened to them and they are for sure feel good songs. Definitely what I needed today!

  14. Now that is just an awesome playlist!!! Definitely picks up my spirits!

  15. Great list! I love all of these songs 🙂

  16. Thanks for jumpstarting my Monday morning. I just dropped BOTH my daughters off at the airport for a GAP year abroad as was feeling sad and lonely — Happy by The Stones really cheers me up!
