My Favorite Feel Good Songs Playlist


Music has always been a huge love of mine. I love how by simply playing one song your whole entire mood can change. I spend a lot of time listening to music throughout my day. Whether it’s when I’m getting ready in the morning, in the car, or to de-stress in the evenings, there’s always something playing. My favorite kinds of songs are ones that put me in the best mood, and make me want to dance around singing them at the top of my lungs. So I decided to put together a list of my favorite feel good songs at the moment, to share with you and hopefully they’ll put you in the best mood too!


Be sure to click each song title if you want to listen to them on YouTube!

Paradise: George Ezra

Now George Ezra’s whole new album is absolutely amazing, so if you haven’t listened to it I highly recommend you do! But I thought I’d mention my favorite songs from it that put in the best mood. When I first heard the song Paradise it wasn’t my favorite, but after listening to it a few times I really like it. The build up in the bridge of the song is my favorite part, as well as the upbeat drums and guitar.

Shotgun: George Ezra

This songs make me want take a long road trip.

The Beautiful Dream: George Ezra

The feeling this song gives me is hard to put into words. It just warms my soul and makes me want to sit out in nature and appreciate the beauty around me.

Hold My Girl: George Ezra

A good, sweet love song.

Happy With Me: Holychild 

This song is from the Me Before You movie soundtrack, and I’ve loved it ever since I heard it about a year ago. For this song it really is more the music and less the words that puts me in a good mood.

All My Life: Honors

I discovered this song a few months ago and haven’t stopped listening to it since.

Take Me Home: Cash Cash

This song came out in 2013, and I still love it all these years later. I think it’s the mix of nostalgia and upbeat music that keeps me coming back to it.

Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go

The best classic 80’s pop song.

Roaring 20’s: Panic! At The Disco

I’m not a huge fan of some of the lyrics of this song, but the theatrical style of the music is just too good for me not to love.

Not Over You & Compromise: Molly Kate Kestner 

I’ve been listening to Molly’s music for about a year or so now, and she’s one of the most talented artists I’ve ever heard. Although I love most of her songs, my two favorites would have to be Not Over You, which is one of the best breakup style songs I’ve heard, and Compromise, which is the perfect motivational song.

Send My Love (To Your New Lover): Adele

I love Adele’s music, but this song is one of my favorite because of its more upbeat music.

Wearing: Polka Dot Midi Dress: Who What Wear at Target | Bandana: Madewell | Backpack Purse: Amazon

And those are my favorite feel good songs! There are many more but these are the ones that I don’t think I’ll ever stop listening to. I’d love to know if you like any of these songs, or what songs do you love listening to that put you in a good mood?!

  5. omg all the George Ezra! George Ezra was my first live concert :’) I’ve been listening to Shotgun a lot lately :3 // I’ve been having a huge Panic! At The Disco phase this summer!! I love the whole album, but especially for an upbeat summer mood, I’ve been enjoying Dancing Is Not A Crime. That song in particular isn’t the kind of music I usually listen to, but it’s been good for the mood ^-^ // Will be listening to the rest of your recommendations as I catch up with blogs, and I’m really excited to go through it since we already have so many songs and artists in common! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

      You’re so lucky you got to see George Ezra in concert! I’m hoping at some point he’ll play somewhere closer to where I live so I can go. I haven’t listened to Dancing Is Not A Crime that much so I’ll have to give that one another listen. I hope you enjoy listening to the rest of the songs! x
