Happiness Comes in All Kinds of Records

By: Lourdes Hernandez

There are countless studies done on the effect music has on the brain. One study conducted by researchers at McGill University found that listening to music does, in fact, cause our brains to release dopamine, generally known as the “feel-good” neurotransmitter!

Valerie Salimpoor is a neuroscientist who has studied the effects that music can have on our mentality. She said, “In one study we found that when people listen to intensely emotional music, they actually release dopamine in deep subcortical circuits that… have evolved to reinforce highly adaptive behavior like eating and sex.”

I surveyed about 20 people to figure out if there’s any song that is thought of as a go-to song to be put in a happy mood.

Of those 20, not one set of responses matched.

At first, I was disappointed because I figured I did something wrong. I wondered if the wording in my survey was off or if some questions were too open-ended.

But after I gave myself some time to think about it, I came to the understanding that it is kind of amazing how so many people have different songs that make them happy. Not everyone is going to have the same songs that get them in a happy mood.

Some of the responses I received were:

Fight Song by Rachel Platten

Faithfully by Journey

It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere by Jimmy Buffett and Alan Jackson

Wide Open Spaces by Dixie Chicks

Cyber Sex by Doja Cat

Sugar by Brockhampton

This Must Be the Place by Talking Heads

Obsessed by Dan + Shay

Won’t Bite by Doja Cat

Roll Away by Midland

Happy by Pharrell

Even though those who contributed to my survey didn’t have their “happiest songs” in common, there’s obviously a Spotify playlist that can help you discover some classic songs to get your mood to soar.

Have a Great Day by Spotify

  1. I Want to Hold Your Hand by the Beatles
  2. Tongue Tied by Grouplove
  3. Build Me Up Buttercup by the Foundations
  4. I Melt with You by Modern English
  5. You’re my Best Friend by Queen

Happy listening!
