18 Songs I’m Not Afraid To Say Make Me Happy
My taste in music has always been eclectic, even in my skater girl and gothic days I still had a secret crush on dance and pop music, sometimes even rap or hip hop, despite head banging. I am being honest when I say I love every genre, especially classical, cheesy pop, hip hop, rock, dance and everything in between, I couldn’t pin point my favourite if I tried. The Nuns songs in Sister Act are amazing too!
As music has always been a huge part of my life and I have such an emotional connection with it, I thought I would share with you some of my happy songs. This did originally start out as 10, but it’s now ended up as 18 happy songs and I hope you love them too! These songs always bring me out of bad moods or depression as music really controls my brain, it makes me feel an array of emotions and I connect with it so well, not just from singing myself, but from listening and getting into a song.
Choosing this list was extremely hard for me as I love so many songs, I mean Elvis Presley, Queen, Abba, One Direction, Justin Bieber… I’m not ashamed to admit the latter 3, but these are some of my favourites when it comes to fun music that cheers me up. We all love and like what we like and whether that’s someone who is hated by many and frowned upon or not, I’m not afraid to really enjoy the music that I connect with. So if you’re feeling down, just listen to these songs and I’m sure you will end up happy after!
If you’re wondering what headphones I have on here, they are the new Sudio Earphones that are wireless in white and rose gold! Aren’t they cool? I’ve always loved their earphones (see here) but now I have a pair which connect to my phone or laptop via Bluetooth so I don’t have a wire restricting my movement, which is perfect. If you want to get your own pair from them (I honestly can’t recommend them for style and quality enough!) you can get 15% off with the code raindrops15 at the checkout! So don’t miss out! Now, enjoy these songs!

All of these songs hold a special place in my heart either from my childhood or more recently, they always touch me in ways that nothing else can and I’m glad I have music as that kind of outlet. Even Disney songs make me happy, I’ve got full albums of those songs too! If you thought the Dire Straits song was too long, that Alchemy live version is the best version of it, especially the solo towards the end, it gives me chills, so definitely persevere!
