We all experience those days when the ‘blues’ just kick in and we can’t help but feel down on ourselves. Whether it’s caused by a personal or work problem, the bottom line is that the feeling is not welcome in our lives, and we just want a way to turn our frowns upside down, right?

Luckily, music is here to help all of us. It can make us feel a variety of emotions, including happiness. So when you’re experiencing one of your “off” days, keep scrolling down for the ultimate pick-me-up playlist that is guaranteed to make you smile every time!


Love on Top by Beyoncé

If Queen Bey can get us to dislike “Becky with the good hair” in Lemonade, she can surely make us feel happy too with this upbeat song about being in love!

Girl Almighty by One Direction

Who can resist the voices of Harry, Louis, Liam, Niall, and Zayn? Plus, when it’s combined with a happy beat like this one, you’ll forget about your ‘blues’ in no time!

Roar by Katy Perry

A song about self-empowerment and standing up for one’s self? Yes, please!

Brave by Sara Bareilles

With the moral of the song being to speak up, just like “Roar,” not only will its tune give your day a pick-me-up, it will also encourage you to stand up for what you believe in!

Love Today by Mika

Mika’s high-pitched voice combined with the song’s happy-go-lucky tune will erase all the negative energy you’re feeling; making this 3-minute song a must-have in all playlists!
