Pick-Me-Up Song #3

Should an artist manage to merge funky riffs, groovy bass-lines and an addictive beat into one, they would have undoubtedly have found the recipe for the perfect good-mood song.


Listen here.

Jerk It Out by Caesars is probably the most accurate example of said recipe. For ten years this little piece has been the source of countless hours of fun – most notably in the video game industry, where it has appeared in at least five different games.

The thing I enjoy most  about this Swedish group is the fact that their sound is so reminiscent of that funky, ‘old school’ feel.

Cheers to the bright side!

Pick-Me-Up Song #2

There are certain songs that never cease to lift the mood. Songs that seem to command your body to move, boogey down and simply sing your goddarn heart out. Midnight City easily fits this jolly category.

Listen here.

 M83 has always amazed me. When describing their music, the word that springs to mind is ‘epic’, and by epic I mean epic in its rawest and truest form – not today’s worn out edition used by kids.

“Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who could not hear the music.”– Angela Monet. Indeed they were. Now, if you’ll please excuse me, my limbs scream to dance. Or have a seizure. In my case, it doesn’t matter, they both are all-too similar.

 Cheers to the bright side of things!

Pick-me-up Song #1

“Always laugh when you can. It’s cheap medicine.”

– Lord Byron

Oh, how so very true. It may be hard sometimes to remember the good when one is drowning in that (all-to-familliar) sea named Sorrow, but in order to move on it is vitally important that we do not let these small ‘slips’ bring us down. Everyone can use a little pick-me-up every now and then, and it is for exactly that purpose I set up these posts.

There’s nothing like a good, cheerful  song to get you up ‘n’ running again.

U2 – Beautiful Day

Cheers to the bright side of things!
