1. I Got You (I Feel Good) – James Brown
No feel good playlist would be complete without James Brown’s signature tune.
2. Relax, Take It Easy – Mika
Let the chilled out verse lull you, the upbeat chorus will remind you to relax.
3. Beggin’ – Madcon
Originally made popular by the Four Seasons, wonderfully reinvented by Madcon.
4. Let The Good Times Roll – BB King
A rambunctious, joyous live performance and BB doing what he does best – cool guitar solos.
5. Generator – The Holloways
The Holloways remind us of the good things in life.
6. My Girls – Animal Collective
Every music critic’s favourite song of last year, “My Girls” is a shimmering, joyous affirmation of life and rejection of empty consumerism.
7. Clothes Off! – Gym Class Heroes
An overdose of self confidence perhaps, but the Gym Class Heroes are doing what they do best – danceable mashups.
8. Idlewild Blues – OutKast

9. Kids – MGMT

10. The Sex Has Made Me Stupid – Robots in Disguise
DoS: “So, I see you’re predicted a third for this term…”
