Woke up on the wrong side of bed this morning? Let T-Swift remind you to just shake it off! Aced a super hard exam? Clap your hands and let everyone know exactly how happy you are! Saw your ex with a new girl today? Put on your earphones and forget him with some Cee Lo!

Whether it's to make yourself feel better after a long and tiring day, or to celebrate the best day ever, put on these tunes and let the good vibrations begin!

  1. "Rather Be" by Clean Bandit
    We all have that one person who serves as our inspiration (it doesn't even have to be romantic. It could be your BFF or your sister ). When you're with that person, you feel like you can do anything and that nothing can stop the two of you, so let this song remind you of him or her! 

  2. "Shake It Off" by Taylor Swift
    It was so right (or the right move?) for Taylor Swift to release this track as the first single of her new album! We all need a song like this to remind us that no matter what challenges life throws at us, we should always just get up and move forward. No one is perfect and it's totally okay to make mistakes, so don’t let other people judge you and don't let their nasty words affect you!

  3. "Happy" by Pharrell
     How can this not put you in a good mood? It's literally telling you to get up and be happy and forget your problems because sulking and feeling down will get you nowhere. Every girl needs to be reminded that, as Pharrell says himself, nothing can bring you down. Bonus: this was part of the soundtrack of Despicable Me 2–most adorable movie ever!

  4. "Good Time" by Owl City ft. Carly Rae Jepsen
    It's quite impossible to wake up on the right side of bed every single morning, but just because your day didn’t start out well doesn't mean you should ruin it for yourself. Let this song put you right back in a great mood–make every time a good time!

  5. "Treasure" by Bruno Mars
    Bruno Mars's suave voice telling you that he wants to treasure you, how feel good can it get? This is just a really nice song to play for every girl cause it's a really simple and sweet love song! 

  6. "Forget You" by Cee Lo Green
    This feel good song is for those girls who have long moved on from those guys who brought them down. It doesn't matter if he's flaunting his new girl at you, you're still prettier, stronger, and more fabulous anyway, and you know that you're better off without him.

  7. "I Don't Care, I Love It" by Icona Pop
    After forgetting about your ex, grab all your girl friends and party to this song! Worries? Problems? Stress? Turn up the volume for this and sing along at the top of your lungs, because sometimes it’s best to just let lose and well, stop caring at least for a short while.

  8. "Party In The USA" by Miley Cyrus
    A feel good playlist is incomplete without this song. Remember in Pitch Perfect, when they were on the bus and then they just busted out to this song? It's got a really chill but fun vibe and it just makes you feel like you’re living the good life. Nothing beats old-school Miley!

  9. "All About The Bass" by Meghan Trainor
    This one is for all the girls who are insecure about their bodies. Some people weren't born looking like silicon-stick-figure-Barbie-dolls, and it’s way better to just accept the body you were born with, own it and work it, than spend so much time and effort trying to get a totally unattainable figure. Love yourself and your body, because every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top! 

  10. "Live While We're Young" by One Direction
    What better way to end a feel good playlist than with a song that's all about just having fun! There's no better time to enjoy your youth than now, right? You're young, beautiful and just deserve to have a good time. Stop letting all the bad vibes in! Life is for living after all.
