10 Uplifting Songs To Listen To When You’re Feeling The Blues

Music helps lift up our spirits on when the world is crashing down on us. It reminds us we’re not alone and speaks to our souls. Warning: don’t listen to depressing music if you’re upset. Listen to these uplifting songs instead when you’re feeling blue.

1) “So don’t be afraid to let them show

Your true colors

True colors are beautiful

Like a rainbow.

Show me a smile then

Don’t be unhappy, can’t remember

When I last saw you laughing

If this world makes you crazy

And you’ve taken all you can bear

You call me up

Because you know I’ll be there”

True Colors – Anne Kendrick & Justin Timberlake

2) “It’s time to get the chains out

Is your tongue tied up?

‘Cause this is my ground

And I’m dangerous

And you can get out

But it’s all about me tonight

So you say I’m complicated

That I must be outta my mind

But you had me underrated

Rated, rated

What’s wrong with being, what’s wrong with being

What’s wrong with being confident?”

Confident – Demi Lovato

3) “Like the air you can

Rise from the rubble with your mind, you can hover

You can rise like the tide, like the heat it in the summer

Yes, I know there are those who will wanna bring you down

But you can rise with your mind and make your higher power proud

You can rise

Like the air you can


Rise – Selena Gomez

4) “See the line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me

And no one knows, how far it goes

If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me

One day I’ll know, if I go there’s just no telling how far I’ll go”

How far I’ll go – Moana (Auli’i Cravalho)

5) “There’s always gonna be another mountain

I’m always gonna wanna make it move

Always gonna be an uphill battle

Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose

Ain’t about how fast I get there

Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side

It’s the climb

Keep on moving

Keep climbing

Keep the faith baby

It’s all about

It’s all about

The climb

Keep the faith”

The Climb – Miley Cyrus

6) “When the sun shines, we shine together

Told you I’ll be here forever

Said I’ll always be your friend

Took an oath that I’m a stick it out till the end

Now that it’s raining more than ever

Know that we still have each other

You can stand under my umbrella

You can stand under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh”

Umbrella – Rihanna

7) “Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shootin’ stars

I could really use a wish right now, wish right now, wish right now

Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shootin’ stars

I could really use a wish right now, wish right now, wish right now”

Airplanes – B.O.B ft Hayley Williams

8) “When I see your face

There’s not a thing that I would change ’cause you’re amazing

Just the way you are

And when you smile

The whole world stops and stares for a while

‘Cause girl you’re amazing

Just the way you are


Just The Way You Are – Bruno Mars

9) “I’m still getting to the good part

The breaking down

Learning how to write my story

And I’m in the middle of the madness

The live and lose

Finding who I’m gonna be

From the start till the end

I’m still learning the road between

I’m gonna need to borrow patience

A shot of courage for letting go

Rent a little wisdom

Until I can afford my own”

Road Between – Lucy Hale

10) “Walking around

My little rain cloud

Hanging over my head

And it ain’t coming down

Where do I go?

Gimme some sort of sign

You hit me with lightning!

Maybe I’ll come alive”

Hard Time – Paramore
