Motivating Songs by the Babylon Radio team

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 


Happy Now – Pentatonix for Michaela 


When the Levee Breaks – Led Zeppelin for Mark 


White Winter Hymnal – Fleet Foxes for Tami 


Have You Ever Seen The Rain – Creedence Clearwater Revival for Laura 


Heroes – David Bowie for Clíona 


Sun Is Shining – Axwell & Ingrosso for Sukhman 


Pacific Coast Highway In The Movies – Awolnation for Belin 


Shotgun – George Ezra for Alexiane


Proud – Craig Cooney Ft Danny Byrne for Colm


Weight in Gold – Omonoko for Colm

We all have those few songs that always get to us, no matter the mood we are in or the time of the day. Hopefully, you will be able to add a few of those songs to the list.
