Top Ten Songs that Make Me Happy

It’s no secret that I love music, if my summer ‘o concerts hasn’t tipped you off, perhaps I can refer you to my Music Monday library. So when life gets a little crazy, or off kilter, it only makes sense that music can set me straight and lighten my mood. And here are the songs that work best:

  1. This Year’s Love | David Gray (a no-brainer for me)
  2. Dancing in the Moonlight | Toploader (because the boys both love it so much and request it all the time)
  3. Stand By Me | Ben E. King (I’ve always loved this song but it also gives me fond memories of the summer I took guitar lessons and learned to play it and then had to play it in front of a room full of people and was expected to sing; thankfully someone else sang for me and yet I was pretty near the most nervous I’ve ever been in my life.)
  4. Open Skies | David Crowder Band (a song we sang in small group and that was played when we lit the unity candle in our wedding)
  5. A Page Is Turned | Bebo Norman (a love song about a how God brought a couple together – so sweet; I also emailed Bebo Norman before I knew who he was and asked him to play the song at my roommate’s wedding. Oddly, he never responded.)
  6. Linger | The Cranberries (you can’t hear this song and not sing along, at least I can’t)
  7. Free Fallin’ | Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers (cliché but true)
  8. Under the Bridge | Red Hot Chili Peppers
  9. Fields of Gold | Sting (this song was my favorite song for a very long time – even if Sting is kind of creepy)
  10. In My Life | The Beatles (melancholy, but happy making, none-the-less)

  1. ok….I think I’m a song nerd. I only know #’s 2 and 6-10. I agree…Sting is kinda creepy.

  2. Field of Gold is a great song. Free Falling is great too. You have great taste in songs.
