Top 10 Feel Good Songs

Feeling a little low? Never fear - music is here! For centuries, music has been a great way of fighting off the blues...or at least documenting them in a melodic way. When you need a quick pick-me-up, check out the top 10 feel good songs below.

10. Queen - We Are the Champions

Corny? Em...absolutely not!

9. Fleetwood Mac - Don't Stop Thinking about Tomorrow

Who is more beautiful than Stevie Nicks? No one.

8. Johnny Nash - I Can See Clearly Now

If this one doesn't make you feel good, you need a hospital!

7. My Girl - The Temptations

"He needs his glasses. He can't see without his glasses!" - Oh...the point was to feel GOOD. Nevermind.

6. Survivor - Eye of the Tiger

For the record, I absolutely KILL this song on Guitar Hero. ;-)

5. Van Morrison - Brown Eyed Girl

Try not to sing along. Go ahead.

4. Natasha Bedingfield - Pocket Full of Sunshine

Great melody...toe tapper.

3. Mista - Blackberry Molasses

Sigh - Brings back memories!

2. Jackson 5 - I Want You Back


Drumroll, please...

And my choice for #1 Feel Good Song of all time...
