So what better way to celebrate being stuck inside than losing yourself to any one of these 10 fantastic songs!
Bridge Over Troubled Water – Simon & Garfunkel
Odds are you’ve heard this song somewhere. Either at a wedding reception, in a movie or just getting thrown around radio stations every now and then.
Slow, methodic and haunting. This song captures lyrical beauty at its very best, accompanied by masterful composition and perfect delivery.
It may not give you the happiest feeling at first, but stick around to the end and you’ll struggle to not smile as wide as you can!
My Way – Frank Sinatra
Powerful and awesome in every sense of the word. Frank Sinatra’s signature finishing song is a great way to remind yourself of how awesome we all can be.
Featuring some of the best lines in a song about self empowerment, and with Frank’s silky smooth voice it’s a great combination.
Till I Collapse – Eminem (Explicit)
If My Way is the signature “don’t take any sh*t” of the 60’s, then this is the equivalent of the 2000s.
Eminem is at his very best and no-holds-barred aggressive in this song. If you ever need a song that convinces you that you can get up and do whatever you want, this is at the top of that pile.
Besides all of the great reasons, it also is one of the best workout songs. Trust me, it works really well.
Hallowed Be Thy Name – Iron Maiden
In case you can’t tell, we’re going very broad with the genres in this list. Hallowed Be Thy Name is one of Iron Maiden’s very best songs out of their whole discography.
With a badass guitar solo, terrific melody and that signature Iron Maiden sound, this is one of the most overlooked songs. Definitely a song worth listening to and enjoying, despite a runtime of 6 minutes, it can be a commitment.
Astronomy – Blue Oyster Cult
You may have heard of their stronger classics like Godzilla, Don’t Fear the Reaper or Burnin’ For You. Odds are, you have not heard this particular song by them.
Which is a real shame because it is one of their best, most haunting and beautiful songs ever.
Tremendous composition, addictive chorus, a stellar ending, amazing lyricism and catchy as all hell. Astronomy will quickly make its way into your heart as one of the most enjoyable rock songs.
I Don’t Like Mondays – The Boomtown Rats
Infectiously upbeat, dark subject matter and addictive writing. This is basically the Pumped Up Kicks of the late 70s.
If you don’t look too far past the surface at the lyrics it just sounds like a crazy fun UK rock song. However, you might enjoy this song more if you do choose to just believe that it’s about not liking Mondays.
Nonetheless, this song has quickly become one of my go to songs to cheer myself up and start dancing around my house. It may not sound like a pretty sight but I have fun.
Stronger – Kelly Clarkson
Look, just because I’m a guy doesn’t mean I’ll deny how stupidly fun this song is to sing when you’re having a bad day.
Aggressive, strong and all about becoming, well stronger. Kelly Clarkson is all about making you feel like you can take on the world in this fantastic song!
Freaky Friday – Lil Dicky (Explicit)
Part parody part awesome pop/rap song. Freaky Friday is by far Lil dicky’s best song and one of the most infectious good times tunes you’ll ever hear.
I mean come on, it’s a song about swapping bodies with Chris Brown. When that story is attached to Brown and Dicky’s amazing lyricism and pitch perfect chorus, it’s really hard not to join in.
Dreamer – K’Naan (Explicit)
One of the most overlooked artists, K’Naan may mostly be known for his work on the Olympics songs, but he has great work.
Dreamer is K’Naan at his very best. With uplifting lyrics, a strong story of perseverance and K’Naan’s signature vocal strengths.
Give Dreamer a listen and we think it’ll quickly make it into one of your playlists!
Tubthumping – Chumbawumba
Come on, did you really think this wasn’t going to find its way into this list at some point?
Tubthumping is seriously one of the greatest pump up and dance like no one’s watching songs of all time.
If you haven’t heard it, then you’re either way too young to know music or you somehow avoided the internet for 40 years.
