Positive Songs (help me make a mix CD)


#1

I’m trying to curate a selection of songs for a friend of mine who could do with a healthy dose of positivity in their life (though couldn’t we all to an extent). I’ve gotten so far…but it’s always best to ask DiS.

Pretty much everything I listen to is miserable but there’s definitely some very moving positivity / hope in here.


#3

Oh and “The Middle”


#4

#5

#6

#7

alive with the glory of love by say anything


#8

steal my sunshine


#9

#10

Pretty much my go to song when I need a dose of positivity:


#11

Or this one:


#12

#13

Zwan was actually really, really good at this (I suppose to a fault). I think it’s the only positive music in my collection that isn’t of that Eels-esque “everything is horrible but I’d still do it again” variety.

#18

Say what you will, but 311 is a positive band.


#19

Not strictly a positive song but when I need something upbeat to sing through gritted teeth it doesn’t get any better than, “I am gonna make it through this year if it kills me.”
