What song always makes you feel better?

Asked by mowens (8264 points ) December 20th, 2009

Is there a song that you can listen to at any point of your life, and feel a little better? I have a couple, but the one that comes to mind is “The best is yet to come”

No particular song comes to mind, but I anything with a good dancing rythm to it will instantly make me want to dance and then I’m in a way better mood. Fast paced latin music will usually do it.

Or really romantic love songs. Then I miss my hubby till he comes home from work.
