The end of the year can be a tough time: the weather is often cold, the days are shorts and the nights are long. Students are going through exams and many people are still looking for jobs. If most people are getting ready to celebrate Christmas, open gifts and see their loved one, for some others, the end of 2020 will be a lonely time away from their families.
One thing that can improve someone’s mood is music. With the right song, everything can feel alright for a couple of minutes, and one feels ready to tackle anything coming their way. Music is powerful, and even though tastes in music cannot be commanded, some songs can unite people.
With this in mind, we wanted to share 15 motivating songs that keep us happy.
High Hopes – Panic at the Disco for Sol
Say Goodbye – Hiroshi Sato for Chris
Walking On Sunshine – Katrina & The Waves for Julia
Lights Up – Harry Styles for Keara
Funkytown – Lipps Inc for Katy
