I love music. I have always been passionate about music and I believe it can make anyone, even on the lowest of low days, feel better. I’ve put together a list of songs that inspire me and make me feel happy, motivated and pumped for the day! Songs that make you want to climb Mt. Everest and be like, ‘Psh that shit was a PIECE of CAKE.’ It’s quite an eclectic mix of artists from around the world; Australia, Austria, England, Australia, Germany and America!
If you want to listen to the whole playlist just click play on Happy Mountain at the bottom of the post.
Before scrolling down to my wondrous list of inspirational ‘pump-up’ songs, I want to share this music video by Prince Ea. This rapper is so unique. His songs are about saving the environment, loving one another for who we are as individuals. This is such a great message, definitely worth 2 minutes of your time.
The ultimate ‘you can do it!’ song. English electronic music duo composed ‘Blind Faith’ and became number 5 in UK singles chart. The “sweet sensation” line is sampled by Loretta Holloway’s 1980 disco hit ‘Love Sensation.’
How can you listen to this and not want to jump around? English drum and bass band of four members topped the chart in the UK with this hit.
FlicFlac is where it’s at! This remix makes this one hit wonder even better. Original version is by Vance Joy, Australian singer-songwriter, his song “Riptide” was voted number 1 on the 2013 Triple J Hottest 100.
Original song by recording artist Robin S. in the early 90’s, but has now been deliciously remixed by Sam Feldt.
A classic that is sure to make you smile! A fun remixed version as well. Bobby Hebb (1938-2010) was an American R&B/soul singer, musician, songwriter, recording artist, and performer known for his 1966 hit entitled “Sunny.”
This 27 year old musician from Fort Worth, Texas has stirred up the music scene with his soulful mid to late 60’s sound.
This is more of a summer tune, but it makes me happy every time I listen to it! James Hersey is an electropop singer-songwriter, producer, and recording artist from Vienna, Austria.
Originally a hip hop head, this has been my favourite for a very long time now, it’s a bit slower than the rest but is a great song for cruisin’ in your car with the windows down. Zion I is a Hip Hop duo from Oakland, California (near my hometown), this song was on their album called ‘The Takeover’ which won Best Bay Area Hip-Hop Record.
This is a bit different but I love it. This kid, Adio Marchant, was previously co-vocalist with Kid British in Manchester, but has since broken out into solo artist Bipolar Sunshine.
The chorus on this song makes me hap-pay! Milky Chance is a German folk duo with reggae and electronic music. FlicFlac remix to add some spice.
This is the most adorable song ever. Love the back and forth duet. Written and recorded by American group Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes. It was released in January 2010 as the second single from the album, Up from Below.
