Music to mend your mood
It's proven music therapy works to boost your happiness...so let's do this!
With a contentious election & a pandemic, couldn’t we all use a little feel-good music? According to Psychology Today, music therapy has been proven “as an independent treatment for reducing depression, anxiety and chronic pain.” Check out USA Today’s list of “100 Songs to Help Lift your Spirits During a Pandemic” which is just as timely – and needed - now as it was earlier this year.
Here are your quick links to the Top 5!
1. Pharrell Williams "Happy" (it doesn't get any happier than this music video)
2. Tina Turner "Better Be Good to Me"
3. Elton John "Blessed"
4. The Pointer Sisters "Neutron Dance" (added bonus: Eddie Murphy movie clips!)
5. Bruno Mars "24K Magic" (a fun live version from the American Music Awards)
We all have those days in 2020 when very little makes us feel better…but hopefully the message of this famously happy song will! Search “songs that make you laugh” on YouTube and you’ll find this gem…In the classic “Singin’ in the Rain,” Gene Kelly’s down in the dumps & Donald O’Connor has to pull out all the stops to cheer him up. Feel the infectious happiness in this “Make ‘Em Laugh” song & dance clip – it’s hard to watch without smiling. We know who was likely smiling watching it – his chiropractor, imagining his bill after seeing all those crazy pratfalls!
