Hi - Could use some suggestions from ATS-ers as to some upbeat, happy, self-esteem raising, fun and high energy music I can download to my ipod.
You see, my ipod currently has some beautiful music on it -- such as May it Be and Into the West from LOTR soundtrack, celtic songs, etc., but I
realize that they can make me feel sad and down and tearful if I'm predisposed already.
I've been feeling very stressed from work, from my finances, from some hits that I've received lately, and just feeling crappy physically. So I need
some pick-me-up music, that energizes, makes me smile, makes me feel tough and strong -- and happy and in a good mood.
Looking for recommendations.
For example, first on my list will be The Verve's Bittersweet Symphony. Why? I know the words aren't uplifting on this song, but I tell you, the music
makes me feel like I can do anything and am a bit of a bad-ass!
Another song that is on my list to download is that silly "I Got A Feeling" by Black Eyed Peas -- because it always makes me feel a bit happier when I
hear it. Or that song "Heroes" (we can be heroes, for just one day...) And that Smashing Pumpkins' song which I can't remember the name of now --
(Impossible is possible tonight.....); and Marilyn Manson's Beautiful People - which for some reason gets me energized. Oh, and that sappy "Walking on
Sunshine" song -- I know, I know, but it makes me feel happy when I hear it.
Not looking for happy love songs, as I'm not in a relationship now and don't want to be reminded of that
I love all kinds of music -- mostly rock, some country and pop, can be 2010s, 2000s, 1990s (some of my favorites), 60s-70s-80s...not so much 50s...can
be Christian (although I am not religious), punk/new wave, grunge, can be "It's a Wonderful World"...showtunes, celtic, world, oh and some upbeat
reggae music would be grand.
I can't think of any more, so I'm hoping you all have great suggestions for toe-tapping, smile-making, you-can-do-it types of songs (words and/or
melody) that make you smile, roll down the car windows and crank up the volume, and feel like you are on top of the world!
To top it off, it's 11 a.m. here and as dark and rainy as can be, so send me some joyful tunes!!!!
Thanks in advance!
