10 Songs that would set your mood right

While Listening to Perfume by Britney Spears

Helo. Life is very interesting. it has its own ups and downs moments. this article will share some of my personal song lists that would set my mood right when i'm in THE down state. these are very subjective, because these are my own collections. but maybe you will agree with some of these songs. here they are, starting from number 10. 

10. Pink - Try

Pink is one of my favorite performer. i've been listening to her song since 2001 (get the party started). This particular song released not too long ago. It has that essence which telling you to never give up and just try. 

9. Adele - Set Fire to the Rain

Have you ever felt that down and angry then you just wanna scream at the top of your lungs? Well, singing this song could satisfy that needs. Adele reached her top of singing carrier from releasing '21' titled album. That album was famous for its break up songs (lyric-wise). But it doesn't mean that this song only apply to broken-hearted situation. It's all about reviving and just to bounce back to track.

8. The Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Part.1

I've read somewhere that this song was dedicated to one of their (the Flaming Lips) friends. it was told that this particular friend has suffered from cancer and she's been struggling in a huge battle. Yoshimi (maybe not a real name) was the name of that friend and Pink Robots is an analogy for Cancer disease. This song tells us that no matter what, we'd still have people that cares a lot about us and support us.

7. Monkey Majik - Open Happiness

First time i heard this song was in 2010. It's late, i know. but i remember my first impression of this song. it was a complete joy. even its music video was delightful to watch. dogs, cute dogs were everywhere.

6. Sheila On 7 - Pagi Yang Menakjubkan

This local (Indonesia) song just has that x factor in setting your mood right. lyrics, melody and beat. it feels like when you're not in that good mood for waking up in the morning or starting your day with such optimism, i suggest you to listen to this track. and plus, i'm a huge fan of Sheila on 7 :)

5. The Strokes - Someday

This, is one of my all time favorite songs from one of my most favorite bands. This song always sets my mood in its rightful place. it's like having this massive raid of warm breeze into your heart and just making you grateful for even survive the day. The intro, guitar riffs and Julian's voice, it all just feels right.

4. Travis - Flowers in the Windows

First time hearing this song was in my middle school period of time. Same with The Strokes - Someday, this song just has that warm and peace feeling bursting into your soul, especially the intro. Lyric-wise, this song tells a story about a man in doubt. i'm just talking from a very board perspective, but there were flowers in the window that day. it's growing and it makes the day brighter and more beautiful. This song makes you believe once more in the good side of life. At least that's my opinion.

3. Coldplay - Fix You

Do you know the background of the song? Chris Martin was comforting his ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow when her dad passed away. he said "when you're too in love to let it go, lights will guide you home" it's like telling us to just stay strong, this problem called life and you still have people that love you no matter what. 

2. The Beatles - Let It Be

Who doesn't know this famous band? The Beatles was known for their amazing tracks. One of my favorite track is Let It Be. The music, the piano intro, Paul's voice. they're just perfect. This song is telling us that in bad of the baddest situation you're still have God. You need to turn to God and just let it be. God knows what best for you and there will be an answer.

1. Oasis - Stop Crying Your Heart Out

"Cos all of the stars are fading away just try not to worry you'll see them some day. Take what you need and be on your way and stop crying your heart out". That's the chorus of this song. I think that's enough explaining, this song literally speaking to you to stop crying and being sad, everything is meant to fade away, but you don't have to worry because you'll see them again someday. Try listen to this and you'll know what i mean. Liam's voice just so mesmerizing. and personally, when i'm so so so sad about something, i will always listen to this piece from Oasis because this song works.
