your favourite pick me up songs?


Recommended Posts

i'm sure this has been discussed before, but i've got a few friends in the doldrums and i want to make them a nice uplifting mix, also a proactive measure for myself for fending off those winter blues!

i've been really enjoying a bunch of tracks from van morrison's 'his band and the street choir'. and currently listening to michael franti's 'say hey' - i've never listened to him but this song is so infectious! also vampire weekend has been doing it for me in the mornings.

what are those songs that put a big smile on your face??

Me 3. In fact I've heard that come over the PA after a lot of EPIC shows. Go figure...

Anyways; off the top of my head:

Time to Pretend - MGMT

Shakedown Street - GD

Jackson - Johnny Cash

Idioteque - Radiohead

Home Again - Disco Biscuits

Crosseyed and Painless - Talking Heads

That was tough, I think I have a fetish for melancholy tunes...

Polyphonic Spree - It's the Sun

Beta Band - Dry the Rain (this one is more mellow/peaceful than jump up and down)

Phish - Loving Cup

Cat Stevens - Morning has Broken

Fleetwood Mac - Second Hand News

Elvis Costello - What's So Funny 'bout Peace, Love and Understanding

Polyphonic Spree - It's the Sun (so appropriate for this list that it bears repeating)
