Get dancing! The ultimate positive playlist to listen to when youre feeling down

Sometimes, it's okay to not feel okay. We all have our bad days where we don't feel ourselves and we feel like we've lost the pep in our step.

However, one thing that never fails to cheer us up is music. The power of it can never be underestimated - putting a few of our favourite songs on repeat and blasting them through our ears is always an instant boost of serotonin.

To help keep the good vibes flowing, have analysed Spotify data to reveal the ultimate positive playlist. The data was collected by analysing playlists with ‘Feel good’ in the title. The top songs and artists from these playlists were than analysed and collated.

Modern artists grab the top spots with American electro-pop duo Surfaces’ coming 1st with their hit ‘Sunday Best,’ and Dua Lipa coming in at number 2 with ‘Don’t Start Now.’ Meanwhile, timeless classics ‘I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me) by Whitney Houston, TOTO’s ‘Africa,’ and ‘Take on Me’ by a-ha all make it into the top 10.
