Top 10 Most Uplifting Songs Determined By Science

You know that feeling when YOUR JAM, YOUR SONG comes on the radio, and you crank up the volume and just rock out to? It's a feeling that overwhelms you to the core and eliminates all the negativity and bad vibes around you. 

A neuroscientist did a study 3 years ago to determine what the 10 MOST UPLIFTING SONGS are. In his analysis, he studied and measured lyrical theme, musical keys, and the song's tempo.

 He said, "Holiday-themed lyrics naturally remind us of happy times, while a major third musical key sounds happy to our ears and something we associate with confidence.  A high tempo of 150 beats per minute also subconsciously triggers a sense of energy."

He only looked at songs from the last 50 years, dating from 2015 and before. And the majority of the songs he chose were from 1966-1986


1.  "Don't Stop Me Now" Queen, 1978 

2.  "Dancing Queen" ABBA, 1976 

3.  "Good Vibrations" The Beach Boys, 1966 

4.  "Uptown Girl", Billy Joel, 1983 

5.  "Eye of the Tiger", Survivor, 1982 

6.  "I'm a Believer"  The Monkees, 1966
