Give me motivating/lift your mood music!

I'm really struggling with my mood lately and despite trying different things to drag myself out of my shitty funk, I can't do it. Is anyone willing to give me a few songs that I can listen to to put a spark back in my spirit.
I appreciate any pearls of wisdom to go along with it.
Thank you MNers.

Normally 80s electro cheese does it for me; Karma Chameleon, Every breath you take, Jump for my love etc. I was an 80s baby though and have often wondered whether the earliest music you can remember always subconciously remains a little special. That may be a good place to start though, with the earliest songs you can remember...

A bit cheesy but always gets me going!

Dua Lipa be the one gets me energised for some reason??

Heard toots and the maytals was my number for the first time the other day and that had me dancing around and alarming the cat (it's reggae).

and i quite like a few sugababes tracks. Cough. Ahem

Stef, you may be into something there! I was born in the early 70s, so I was brought up with that era of music. I'll give it a go, thank you for that.

Tazmum01 Tue 21-Nov-17 10:41:01

Lady, what a cracking song! How can anyone feel down with that playing!! Thank you x

Tazmum01 Tue 21-Nov-17 10:41:54

Bullet, I'll get them up on YouTube x

Tazmum01 Tue 21-Nov-17 10:44:41

Maras2, some great songs in there.

I've got 'heatwave' running round my head, but I need the whoopi Goldberg version from sister act, Martha and her vandellas aren't doing it for me.
Thank you for your replies. I'm struggling, but I'll get there.

Hollowtree, I went through all my old favourite rock bands. It amazed me how many songs I used to love and still do. Motley crue, whitesnake, quireboys, skid row and of course, because I'm from their home town, def Leppard.
Chucked some motown in there too.
Thanks everyone

I’m partial to listening to Heart 80’s (or Heeeaaart aaayyyy-teeeeeeeees), usually in the car - proper crank up the volume sing along tunes. My dc love the cheesy announcements - they say it’s like Car Share
