I've been having a bit of a crap time recently but when I put on certain songs I can't help but sing and shimmy!
A few favourites are:
Frank turner: reasons not to be an idiot
Beyonce: run the world
Madonna: express yourself
Gaga: born this way

Any more suggestions? I'd love to build an hour long playlist I can just whack on and sing and dance the blues away, TIA

Dance Your Pain Away by Agnetha Faltskog - you can get a good shimmy going on the "he got nothing on you" bit grin

I know it’s obvious but “Happy” by Pharrel always makes me smile and sing along, (however grumpy I am) as soon as it comes on the radio.
A couple of older ones that work on me are - The Carpenters - Close to you, and... The Monkees - Daydream Believer. 😍
