7 Songs to Inspire a Better Day (or at least put a smile on your face)

Okay, here’s a few songs to inspire you to have a better day … or to just get you moving with a smile on your face.

We’ve listed 7 … What songs would you recommend?

1. Walk On by U2

And if the darkness is to keep us apart/And if the daylight feels like it’s a long way off/And if your glass heart should crack/Before the second you turn back
Oh no, be strong/Oh, oh, walk on, walk on/What you got, they can’t steal it/No, they can’t even feel it/Walk on, walk on

2. Soak up the Sun by Sheryl Crow

It’s not having what you want/It’s wanting what you’ve got/I’m gonna soak up the sun/Gonna tell everyone/To lighten up/I’ve got no one to blame/For every time I feel lame/I’m looking up

3. Ho Hey by the Lumineers

So show me family/All the blood that I would bleed/I don’t know where I belong/I don’t know where I went wrong/But I can write a song/I belong with you, you belong with me, you’re my sweetheart

4. Hey, Soul Sister by Train

You’re the only one I’m dreaming of/ You see, I can be myself now finally/ In fact there’s nothing I can’t be/ I want the world to see you’ll be with me

(Hard to get those “hey, hey’s” and the ukulele out of your head; this song is one my daughter loves to dance to.)

5. Sowing the Seeds of Love by Tears for Fears

And I believe in lovepower, love power, love power/Sowing the Seeds/An end to need/And the Politics of Greed/With love

6. Dig In by Lenny Kravitz

If you ain’t part of the game then how can you find a solution/Nobody said that it would be fair/When the mountain is high/Just look up to the sky/Ask God to teach you/Then persevere with a smile

And no list would be complete without this song (just try to watch the video without a smile on your face and a little tap in your toes) …

7. Happy by Pharrell Williams

Bring me down/Can’t nothing bring me down/My level’s too high/Bring me down/Can’t nothing bring me down/Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth/Because I’m happy/Clap along if you know what happiness is to you/Because I’m happy/Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do
