6 Songs To Stop You From Crying
Sometimes you just need a little help to turn your frown upside down after a long day of slogging through exams, or work. Here is a list of a few songs that are guaranteed to make you happy again!
Shake Your Tail Feather - The Blues Brothers Version
If this song doesn't get you up and dancing then you're probably a vampire- it's virtually impossible to be sad when you hear Ray Charles. This song is particularly great for dancing in front of the mirror and playing air trumpet/saxophone.
TNT - AC/DC
It's one of Australia's honorary anthems- and truth be told more people probably know the words to this than the actual national anthem. I once saw Anthrax cover this live and the atmosphere was incredible. A true happy song no matter who is played by.
Happy - Andrew Winton
If you haven't heard this track- you need to. The brother of writer Tim Winton released this track as the opener on his newest album 'Happy' and I don't know if it's just the repetition of the word 'happy' a billion times or his incredible voice and skill but goddammit that man knows how to make someone smile.
Smells like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
A true classic that is bound to get you moshing around on your lonesome and destroying your neatly made bed. There's a reason this track was so groundbreaking at the time and that's because it's awesome. So stop being sad you sadface and go practice your head banging.
Africa - Toto
You can't listen to this song and not either sing, or pretend you're in an epic video clip, or both. This song is excellent for pretending you actually know how to sign harmonies and will get you out of your funk quicker than you can sing "I bless the rains".
By the Way- Red Hot Chili Peppers
No one does insanity like the Peppers and I'm not even talking about their lyrics. Go dye your hair an awesome colour, rip your shirt off and go crazy. This song will make you feel much much better, although you will need to have a lie down after your energetic performance. ;)
SMILE! Life is too short to be a grumble. Tweet me your happy songs! @perthsoundchic and @isolated nation will keep you entertained. Until next time!
