Girls Just Wanna Have Fun – Cyndi Lauper. It always makes me jump up and dance. Fine at home, a little inappropriate in the dentist’s office.

Country Roads by John Denver. It’s about my state, WV, so I might be partial.

St. Louis Tickle. This exact version, played by Dave Van Ronk. I want this on a loop at my funeral, in between bouts of classical. I love classical music and opera, and when nobody’s listening I sing along with them, but there’s nothing in the repertoire that raises my mood like this one.

This changes over the years. Right now, there are two by Bruno Mars that can get me out of a funk. Mars is about fun. And that’s what I need when the world looks like shit. Life is short. Sometimes I need to remember to have some fun.

Uptown Funk

There is a genre that has always been my go-to music when I’m down. Classical Spanish guitar. It’s bright a beautiful with an undercurrent of Latin melancholy to make it real. It is festive, but also recognizes the hardness of life. And there is an urgency in it—an urgency that we either use it or lose it. It’s the perfect music for depression.

Asturias. This is repetitive and perfect for a meditative state, like a mantra. Just close your eyes.

I like Johnny Nash’s I can see clearly now

I also like Katrina and the Waves Walking on Sunshine


Maroon 5s Moves like Jagger

The Scissor Sisters I don’t feel like dancing, when I really do!

Bill Wither’s Lovely Day.

And this one.

Just to name a few entries on my favourite ‘feel good’ music.

I’ll go with ‘We Just Disagree’ by Dave Mason.

There ain’t no good guy
There ain’t no bad guy
There’s only you and me
And we just disagree

Into The Mystic by Van Morrison.
Something about this song just makes me feel good and chills me right out.

I was always a fan of Dean Martin, and one of my favorite songs by him was “That’s Amore”. Great, upbeat, happy tune. As was a lot of Dinos stuff.

“I feel good” by James Brown. This will really make you feel good but the effect will diminish the more repetition you have for the song.

Bad Romance-Lady Gaga

I want your love and I want your revenge.
What a great line. Makes me laugh every time I hear it.
