The Top 10 Feel Good Songs of the Last 50 Years

Everyone knows that music can make us happy. You might think it’s because you associate fond memories with certain songs or it’s the “happy” lyrics. And there’s probably truth in that. But fond memories or not, it turns out music with a certain tempo and key actually stimulates the “happy” cells in the brain.

The neuroscientist who figured this out studied songs from the past 50 years and came up with this top 10 list of feel good songs. It seems the sixties, seventies and eighties were the decades that produced the happiest songs. I guess it’s true they don’t make them like they used to any more – at least when it comes to happy music.

So when you need a lift, listen to these songs for an instant boost.
