Music has an interesting power to amplify whatever mood we find ourselves in. Sad songs feel good when we’re sad. Happy songs are fun to revel in when we’re happy. Love songs are best enjoyed by those who are in love. But the right music can also change our moods. Here are three albums that consistently put me in a good mood, no matter how I’m feeling.
Keep No Score by Sleeping at Last
Pretty much every Sleeping at Last song fills me with awe. This album in particular is special to me because it’s one of the first albums that Josh let me borrow back when we were just friends. Also, we walked back up the aisle together to the second verse of “Umbrellas” after being pronounced married! It’s difficult to choose favorites, but if I HAD to choose, I’d recommend “Tension & Thrill,” “Needle & Thread,” “Quicksand,” and “Umbrellas” (of course).
Air for Free by Relient K
All of Relient K’s albums put me in a good mood (especially Forget and Not Slow Down), but I’m particularly digging their newest one lately. My favorite songs are “Air for Free,” “God,” “Mountaintop,” and “Flower.”.
Pure Heroine by Lorde
I love Lorde’s voice SO MUCH. And I can’t help but dance when I hear the beats on this album. “Tennis Court,” “Buzzcut Season,” “Glory and Gore,” and “A World Alone” are the songs I love the most.
