MY MUST-LISTEN LIST: The Most Feel-Good Song In The World…Ever.

Story from: GOSSIP GUY

Hi sunshines,

Gossip Guy here, with my 5-step foolproof plan to make you, yes you, feel great.

And my plan works perfectly every time. You will need:

  1. A device to watch YouTube videos on [Computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone… um that’s about all the options – Ed.]
  2. An internet connection [We ‘heart’ free Wifi – Ed.]
  3. An open mind [But not so open that your grey matter falls out! – Ed.]

Why all the cryptic talk? Because we’re going to watch YouTube videos in an attempt to find the world’s most feel-goodest song ever written. Like, ever. No small task…

After a recent article on The Huffington Post detailed Queen’s 1978 hit song We Will Rock You as the most feel-goodliest song in the world ever, we wondered if their scientists weren’t high on sulphuric acid fumes. To get to their answer, a survey polled 2000 British adults, who presumably had never, ever heard this song from One Direction:

They also spoke to cognitive neuroscientist Dr Jacob Jolij, who crunched the numbers on the survey like a good little PriceWaterhouseCoopers lackey, and discovered that there’s actually a “feel-good formula” for music. It’s 3 things: fast tempo (roughly 150 beats per minute), a major key and happy lyrics. Fair enough. Sounds logical and pretty much rules out anything by Lana Del Rey and from Rent, the Broadway musical.

Now, listen to the Queen song and see if you agree that Don’t Stop Me Now is the most feel-good song in the world ever.


Gossip Guy would like to think otherwise. So here are my top 5 choices for music to always, no matter how awful your day might be, put a smile on your dial (in no particular order…)

Scissor Sister – I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’

Billy Joel – Uptown Girl

ABBA – Mamma Mia

Pharrell Williams – Happy

Taylor Swift – Shake It Off

Ok now your turn – agree? Disagree? Let me know in the comments section or tweet me @the_gossip_guy.

The happiest Gossip Guy…ever!
