I’ve recently realised that I spend an awful lot of time in the car with my children.
This means we spend an awful lot of time negotiating what we listen to on the radio. Well, except perhaps for the 16-going-on-25-year-old who has her headphones plugged in her ears for the majority of the trip.
There are some songs however, I notice that she will reluctantly remove them for. And then, without even meaning to, finds herself singing along to with the rest of us.

Plus, I’m all about the ‘uplifting’ song. The ones that we can sing along to that won’t necessarily require me explaining what ‘a disco stick’ is to a nine-year-old. Not only that, I myself have now learnt that I need some fun, feel-good music to get me over that 3:30 slump at work. You know the one? The time in the day where you fall into a deep pit of despair and realise you’ve got at least two hours left until you can ever START to pack up and go home?
So to get you through (like me) the morning commute and (perhaps also like me) get you motivated enough to get through the day, let me present you with 11 of the most uplifting and fun songs to sing along to:
Because if I jump out of bed and listen to this song, I have a better chance of convincing myself I will be. (Happy that is!)

Best played when you are knee deep in making school lunches or when jumping in the shower before work. A positive attitude is everything and my mood is certainly improved by this song.
This ironically has the calming effect you need when the traffic is a nightmare and you start to feel the blood pressure rising.
I like to save this one for when I’m on the treadmill on my lunch hour. Seems to just fit perfectly and get me going. #fitspo
