Happiness comes from so many things, probably friends being the biggest source, the a feeling of moving towards achieving a goal. But for a quick fix, there’s chocolate, wine, and … MUSIC!
I personally love miserable music – all my favourite tracks are depressing – but I know it’s not good for me. If I listened to The Blue Nile and Del Amitri all the time I’d probably never get out of bed, or never leave the house. I’d be living on Solid Air….
And lots of cheerful music is twee or annoying. For example, here are three tracks which I find irritating (but which I would concede that some people find cheerful):
- Uptown Girl – Billy Joel
- Chain Reaction – Diana Ross
- Good Vibrations – The Beachboys
So it’s taken me a while to compile this list of happy music that’s also good, and I hope you like it; maybe you’ll discover some good new stuff from reading the list:
I have put it all into a youtube playlist so you can listen and enjoy:
