We all have those days when we just want to crawl under the covers and sleep for a hundred years. Our roommates and friends beg us to go out because it’s Arbor Day or some other holiday to go out and get drunk for and all we want to do it stay in and have a hot date with our Netflix queue. If you’re like me, you cannot stay in while the rest of your friends go out because you will get a bad case of ‘FOMO’ (the Fear of Missing Out). I put on some of the best pump up jams we can find and fake it ’till I make it!
Everyone needs to a go-to playlist for when they need a little pick me up and there’s no Redbull nearby. Not only do these songs work for when you’re tired, but they’ll also bust you out of the crabass mood you’re in! If you failed a test, got dumped, got fired, got a bad case of the Mondays, these songs will do the trick and help snap you out of the dumps you’re down in. From Rihanna to Bon Jovi, I have compiled a list of songs that are perky, positive and upbeat. I will guarantee that you will be nodding your head and tapping your foot or booty poppin’ somewhere during this playlist!
This was so hard to narrow down to just 20 songs, but I did my best. Happy listening!
