- "Don't You Worry Child" - Swedish House Mafia
Okay, despite the fact that there may be a slither of romance in this one, you have to admit that the fantastic ambient music, along with the contagiously mystical chorus that this song has, leaves you absolutely optimistic about all that life has to offer.
- "Can't Stop" - Red Hot Chili Peppers
Probably one of RHCP's best songs ever. Dare to listen to this one without fighting the urge to bob your head, or break out into a random, but super cool dance number.
- "Titanium" - David Guetta
Love Pitch Perfect? Then recreate the shower scene in just about every location you can imagine. We assure you to have tons of fun, and no shortage of anyone to have the duet with, as there is no shortage of willing Pitch Perfect fans to sing it with you! Aca-Awesome!
- "Island in the Sun" - Weezer
Nothing prepares you for the summer than the chill beach vibe that comes with this song right here. Once you get it inside your head it's almost impossible to not think of that warm paradise away from home, especially when you're confined within the walls of your classroom.
- "Here Comes The Sun" - The Beatles
For the carefree and wonderful girl inside of you. Feel free to smile at each and every passing stranger and wish them a good day for the rest of the month, with all the good vibes that resonates from this one.
- "Barely Legal" - The Strokes
Every twist and turn of our journey to adulthood, this song pretty much sums it up.
- "You've Got A Friend In Me" - Randy Newman
Take a blast from the past and rediscover your childhood's anthem. The warm images of Woody, and perhaps even your first ever disney movie will have you forgetting all happy couples and go back to the time where things weren't so complicated.
- "Buffalo Soldier" - Bob Marley
Play this on your family stereo and bask in how your dad's face would light up just by the fact that you know this tune. Feel free to research and add Tears for Fears, Depeche Mode, Sade, and China Crisis on your playlist for an extra mind-blowing effect.
- "One Day More" - Les Misérables Cast
Alright, who doesn't love Les Misérables? Find that extra push to get through each and every day of February by listening to this one. Feel free to murder the replay button x infinity if you really need to—it's there for a reason.
- "Watch The World" - Box Car Racer
A helpful reminder that having someone (whom you're not necessarily romantically involved with) in times of utter disaster, is all you need to overcome it.
