    Omg I actually love most of these songs! What a great playlist – I absolutely adore the ready set but they’re not really well heard of x

    Ooh! I love this!!

    I love everything Avril Lavigne. She’s part of my childhood! She got me thru my surgeries, my roommate and I used to jam to “Sk8er Boi” and sing the songs of her first album on our way to trips. ♥

    I also think these songs help bring out motivation too; they’re “happy” songs. A lot of people create these types of playlists and include songs that are gloomy and dark, which isn’t bad or anything (I have a few myself!) but like “Shut Up And Dance” and “Gives You Hell” are energetic and can bring out happy feelings! Oh, and “Dancing On My Own” is my favorite song by Robyn. I’m STILL obsessed with it. Ever since I saw the remake by Callum Scott? I’ve been listening to it again. Lol

    Such a great list of motivation/fight songs. It’s what we need sometimes when days aren’t going as we hoped

    This is so great! I have a massive playlist filled with happy songs (including Shut Up And Dance, Classic, and Gives You Hell) and they make all the difference in the world.

    Gives You Hell is such a good song for a bad day, it just motivates me to prove myself to anyone that’s ever annoyed me like. Ever.

    I’ve got a little playlist on spotify called ‘happy thoughts’ for when things get a little bit bad. I’ll definitely be having a listen to these, although there’s a few on here I’ve already got in the playlist!

    Oh I love this, nothing better than a motivational playlist to brighten up a bad day! My favourite song for bad days is On Top Of The World by Imagine Dragons. That has to be on full volume! x

    Irrelevant to the post but I absolutely love your header Hun! ‘Dancing on my own’ brings back so many memories for me, it’s such a feel good song😊 X

    Only liked 2 of those songs! 😂. I’m fussy when it comes to music but the bad day playlist seems a good idea as I may need to consider this!🙂
