What’s YOUR Favorite Happy Song?

Listen to the Music

I have a friend whom I consider my musical soulmate, and sometimes we’ll randomly share a tune with each other to either bring back memories (we’re around the same age, so we were going through some of life’s common milestones around the same time) or just see what the other thinks of it.

A few months ago, he asked me about my favorite go-to happy song, and without hesitation I answered “Listen to the Music” by The Doobie Brothers.

(I don’t know why, but there’s just always been something about that song that plucks my serotonin, even when I was a child.)

15 Songs for Hope, Motivation, and Good Moods

A few days ago, while sitting at a red light beside the hospital where we learned my father’s final option was hospice, I was feeling pretty — well, shitty — about life, and as if on cue, “Listen to the Music” came on the radio. Suddenly, I felt better.

I felt as if Dad and the universe at large didn’t want me sitting there feeling sorry for myself.

I felt happy.

Later, it occurred to me that although I’ve written numerous music-related posts here at Celebrity Psychings (from songs about misery to relaxation to recovery), I’ve never asked YOU, readers, about your favorite HAPPY SONGS.

So share with us in the comments below. What is your go-to song when you need to feel happy? Be sure to check out everyone else’s, too; you might find one or two that you hadn’t thought of before 🙂
