Blue Monday, often considered the most depressing day of the year, can hit us hard with its combination of post-holiday blues, short weather, cold weather, and the return to routine. Lucky for us, some songs have the incredible power to uplift, energize and cheer us up.
To help you combat the Monday blues, here’s a playlist featuring some feel-good tunes that are sure to bring a smile to your face.
8. HANSON – “MMMBOP”
The upbeat and catchy tune of “MMMBop” by Hanson is a throwback to the ’90s that will add a dose of nostalgia to your Monday. Hopefully its carefree vibe will transport you to a more carefree time. If that doesn’t work, consider that an MMMBop is a reminder that time passes quickly so you need to reach for what is important and meaningful.
“A lot of people ask what ‘MMMBop’ means … Well ‘MMMBop’ as a word, it represents time. It represents the fact that time passes very quickly … And so in a story about reaching for what’s important and kind of driving towards the impossible dream, ‘MMMBop’ is telling you: go now, go now, go now, because in a moment, in an ‘MMMBop,’ life will be over and have passed you by.”
