11 Catchy or Feel Good Songs

All this post is about, is feel good , and catchy, songs. As a music junkie, I come across them quite often, and I even have a playlist of them on my iPod that’s 150-ish songs deep.

What makes a song catchy? A nice beat, of course, with some­times clever lyrics. The same thing goes for the feel good songs, which will prob­a­bly have some more mean­ing­ful lyrics.

I fig­ured some of you might enjoy some songs on this Sat­ur­day morn­ing. Here are some of the bet­ter ones, after the break…

1. Imo­gen Heap — Good­night and Go — Pop

This really is a dic­tio­nary def­i­n­i­tion of a “feel good song”, in my opin­ion. Imo­gen is bloody talented.

2. David Guetta — Deliri­ous — Pop / Dance

David Guetta always churns out great songs that would fit best at a party. There is a build up to the cho­rus in this song, which makes a great impact when this is turned up loud.

3. MGMT — Time to Pre­tend — Alternative

When I heard this a while ago, I knew I had heard it before. I had heard it from the movie 21 (a great movie), and lis­ten­ing to the lyrics is almost a story in itself.

4. ATB — Let You Go — Dance / Trance

This is another song with great lyrics. “I’ve been run­ning like a sen­tence” — priceless!!

5. Chi­cane — Stoned in Love ft. Tom Jones — Dance / Trance

This is one of those songs that, for me, seem to impact you best in the morn­ing. This track deserved MUCH more recog­ni­tion than it’s got­ten. Tom Jones is a beast.

6. Jem — They — Pop

I hear that this song is sup­pos­edly a trib­ute to Cin­derella (that’s where the bum baa da bit comes from). I think it’s more of a trib­ute f***ing catchy music.

7. Kaskade — Sweet Love — Trance / Dance

Yes, this is another song that’s in the same class as Stoned in Love, that’s above. In addi­tion, this is a great night time song. Just close your eyes and lis­ten to the beat.

8. Flunk — Blue Mon­day - Indie

Here’s another, slow paced, ver­sion of the song Blue Mon­day, by New Order. You know, that old clas­sic with plenty of base? Yeah, that’s the one. But you know, I really like this ver­sion a lot more…

9. Dido — Here With Me — Pop / Lounge

Not sure why I included this… but you can’t deny that it’s some­what catchy.

10. Zaho — Dima — French Pop / Rap

You don’t need to under­stand what she’s say­ing to like the song.

11. Rob Dougan — Clubbed to Death — Instru­men­tal / Soundtrack

This one comes from the Blade Trin­ity sound­track, and it is a good instru­men­tal. I would throw it up there with Requiem for a Dream.

I tried to choose songs that [nor­mal] peo­ple prob­a­bly don’t already have on their iPods and stuff, yet. This post took a nice two hours to put together, so I can only hope you found some­thing you liked.

  1. Very nice post. dugg!

    I lis­ten to Imogen’s “Speak For Your­self” album 2–3 times a week. REALLY an entire catchy/feel good album!

    Cheers!

  2. Zaho is amaz­ing. I don’t under­stand a word she says but I love her. You should try Kif ‘n’ dir and la roue tourne.

  3. the sam­ple used in Jem — They is from the Swingle Singers, a vocal group from France in the 60s and later Eng­land in the 70s. AFAIK know it has never had any­thing to do with Cinderella.

  4. THANK U!!! I was search­ing for ‘Jem — They’ for a while now– but for­got the songs name! Such a relief~ :3 THANK U again!! :D
