7 Uplifting Songs to Listen to when You Are in a Bad Mood ...


When you're having one of those days that makes you want to spend the rest of your life living under your duvet, listening to uplifting songs can be a real soul saver.

Now, we all have completely subjective versions of what makes uplifting songs uplifting.

I've been told that some of mine are just downright depressing lyrics wise.

Many have also been covered to hell and back, which means there are several versions you can enjoy.

1. Boys of Summer

This is one of those uplifting songs that has been covered quite a bit.

The original was sung by Don Henley, but my favorite version is by The Ataris.

The line "Those days are gone forever" is a little on the sad side.

Still, there is an underlying optimism to this song.

It's a great track to remind you of years gone by.

2. Hallelujah

Okay, this is one of those songs I was talking about.

The one that is really a little bit depressing.

Despite this, I actually feel quite positive after listening to it.

The original was by Leonard Cohen, but my favorite version is by Jeff Buckley.

There is also a great version by a singer named Katie Vogel.

3. Hey Jude

I practically love ALL of The Beatles' songs, but 'Hey Jude' is probably my favorite.

At the time of its release, it was the fastest selling debut release for a record label.

It is all about taking sadness and turning it into something positive.

I don't watch Glee, but I do enjoy the version that was on it!

Sadly, The Beatles aren't on Spotify, but I am pretty sure the Paul McCartney version is.2

4. We Are Young

Okay, I am taking my head out of the 20th century and coming into the 21st.

'We Are Young' is all about owning your mistakes, getting over it, and then going out and having more fun anyway.

I have to admit, I am not a fan of Fun's other songs.

This one, however, remains firmly on my uplifting list.2

I just can't seem to tire it out!
