I’m a busy educator and entrepreneur with a complicated mind. It’s a heavy combination. Thankfully, music is my therapy, and there are certain songs that boost my mood whenever I hear them. Here are some current songs that get me going. Hopefully, they’ll inspire you to be giddy, too.

Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke, Pharrell, and T.I.

This is my FAVORITE song of now (and perhaps all-time). It makes me want to sing, dance, smile, and paint pictures of puppies in my panties. (Hey! Hey! Hey!)

Radioactive by Imagine Dragons

This song definitely has dark undertones but for some reason, it gets me PUMPED! Using a stiff forearm, I intently pump one fist while blasting it extremely loud in my car.

Treasure by Bruno Mars

This song makes me smile so hard it doesn’t make any type of sense…I mean, like, an idiotic smile. Very sing-along-able, too.

Mirrors by Justin Timberlake

This song makes me smile…and cry…and wish that I really could sing. Good job, JT.

The Way by Ariana Grande and Mac Miller

I love this song because it makes me think of every sugary-sweet pop song I’ve ever heard in the best way possible. It makes me feel nostalgic and reminds me of the good ole’ times (whenever that may have been).

Crooked Smile by J. Cole and TLC

“Crooked smile, wicked style on em’.” Yup, that’s me! P.S. So glad to hear TLC again 🙂

Feds Watching by 2 Chainz and Pharrell

Wooooo-Weeeee! I love 2 Chainz and he has YET AGAIN reinforced all the reasons why. My goodness! What a delightful piece of ignorance mixed with “real.”

How Many Drinks? by Miguel and Kendrick Lamar – I don’t know what all the talk is about this song promoting rape culture, but I do know it comes on smoother than a baby’s ass. It makes me want to drop my imaginary top and cruise through the city as a warm breeze wafts over me.

Don’t Drop That Thun Thun by Finatticz

This is my three-year-old cousin’s favorite song. When I sing it, he says, “Hey! That’s my song!” and I retort, “No, it’s mines!” I’m sure we should both be ashamed.

*Stay tuned for “Mood-Boosting Music, Part II: Then”
