birds, stars and sunshine: songs to lift you

Music is one of my primary senses: I literally experience music physically. Music is an energy to me. It is an basic need I could NOT live without it.

To honor music and to celebrate YOU, I share my top 10 list of happy happiest uplifting songs with videos. When I need lifting, these songs are guaranteed to make me shine.  Turn up your speakers, listen, DANCE and experience the ultimate concert with some crazy good uplifting joyous music.

Gonzo, Free Range Strauss

Ben Harper

For this one, I share Ben’s lyrics containing a brilliant collection of life mantras:

One, two, one, two, three
I’m a living sunset Lightning in my bones Push me to the edge But my will is stone
‘Cause I believe in a better way
Fools will be fools And wise will be wise But I will look this world Straight in the eyes
I believe in a better way I believe there’s a better way
What good is a man Who won’t take a stand What good is a cynic With no better plan
I believe in a better way I believe in a better way
Hope these words feel pleasant As they rest upon your ears Hope these words feel pleasant As they rest upon your ears
Upon your ears, upon your ears Upon your ears, upon your ears
Reality is sharp It cuts at me like a knife Everyone I know Is in the fight of their life
And I believe there’s a better way
Take your face out of your hands And clear your eyes You have a right to your dream And don’t be denied
I believe in a better way I believe in a better way I believe in a better way
