Song thread 🎵

Hi everyone!

I'm sure most of us have music playlists depending on our moods. I think we should start a thread with songs that make us feel happy - this could be because of the lyrics, the beat, the memories you have, things you associate with the song etc.

I'll start. A song that lifts my mood is 'The Way Life Goes' by Lil Uzi Vert and Oh Wonder. The lyrics are really quite powerful and i believe it's something we all need to remember.

"I know it hurts sometimes but you'll get over it
You'll find another life to live
I swear that you'll get over it
I know you're sad and tired
You've got nothing left to give
You'll find another life to live
I know that you'll get over it"

Reply with a song that lifts your mood!

    I love the song 'Whistle' by Flo Rida. It just brings back the best memories back when I was at primary school. My classmates and I always used to sing our hearts out when the teachers put this song for us.

    Roar - Katy Perry. Reminded me of Year 2 where we would annoy the boys by singing this together

    There's a part of me I can't get back.  A little girl grew up too fast. All it took was once. I'll never be the same.

    Great idea @rainskye :)

    For me it's 'I'll Make a Man Out of You' from Mulan. Firstly, Disney makes everything better. Secondly, it reminds me of living with my friends at uni and the nights-in where we always ended up crying with laughter. We used to sing Disney tunes very passionately :blush:

    Damn, this just reminded me of a time my phone kept randomly playing this song (just the main whistling bit). I assumed it was a virus but never did get to the bottom of it. 🤔

    Loud Places by Jamie XX always puts me in a great mood:



    I think partly because the album as a whole is so uplifting, because I was at quite an outgoing stage of life when it was released, and also because I remember watching Jamie XX's Glastonbury set on TV in 2017 and being absolutely blown away by it. He used this song to close out his set, and even though I wasn't there, I still listen to the whole thing sometimes.
    All behaviour is a need trying to be met.

    Another song that puts me in a great mood is Vegas Lights by Panic! At The Disco. I think because when I was really into P!ATD I was at a good point in my life :)

    Recently I've found the song A-O-K by Tai Verdes and it's getting me through a difficult time in my life. Also though, anything upbeat from musicals usually does the trick and cheers me up, haha! =):p

    I love listening to Footloose. It makes me want to dance along.

    All of me by John Legend makes me cry but at the same time it makes me happy too

    I would have to say that a happy song at the moment is 'rainbow' by Dodie. It's a quieter one but also so adorable.

    Soo....
    Mango by Sevana - A happy Jamaican song about love! Everything about it is <3

    Michael Jackson songs:
    Blame It On the Boogie
    Rock My World

    Voulez-Vouz by ABBA - I've danced to this song way too many times. It's so old but it feels so new.

    I think I’m okay - Machine Gun Kelly, Yungblud, Travis Barker
    By far my favourite song! I can relate to every single lyric in that song, which is pretty rare lmao. It’s honestly incredible

    ‘I hurt myself sometimes is that too scary for you’
    ‘Up all week wasting time on people I don’t like’

    I could go on... 😂
    •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

    Forget me too - machine gun Kelly, Halsey
    The lyrics describe me and boyfriends relationship perfectly - They’d be better off alone but they can’t resist each other

    Him: ‘I’m keeping you waiting, but I won’t wait on you
    You want me to forget you, okay forget me too

    Her: ‘We’d both be better off alone, still think I’d get you on the phone
    With one last breath in me, I’d die before I let you leave’.

    Happier- Ed Sheeran, ugh this song gets me in my feelings
  • ApolloApollo Teenage Dirtbag ScotlandPosts: 647 Incredible Poster
    This about to be the babiest thing I've ever said on this site but Island Song actually never fails to make me feel like I'm gonna god damn cry.

    Its the outro song from Adventure Time but if anyone's spoken to me it should be no surprise that I never even watched that show (I have seen nothing), I remember it came on sometimes but it was never something I watched a lot. I don't know why the song makes me feel so emotional

    The song:


    I dunno, maybe its because I don't want to grow up

    Dominique is a great song (especially the French version.) It just sounds so comforting and I was listening to it on repeat yesterday.

    I don't think your song choice was childish or anything like that @Apollo Adventure Time might be a kids cartoon but it has a lot of very sweet and emotional songs. One of my personal favourites from it is Everything Stays, it's a beautiful song about the passage of time and forgotten things from childhood.

  • ApolloApollo Teenage Dirtbag ScotlandPosts: 647 Incredible Poster
    @Riley I really like this. I know as you said Adventure Time is a kids cartoon but from what I've seen of it it's always seemed kind of an emotionally intelligent show, and the character designs are nice. I'd like to watch it some day

    I am LOVING the Glee version of Damn It, Janet (Rocky Horror Picture Show) atm - it just is so easy to sing along to even if you can't sing well (which is certainly an accurate description of me haha).
