Some Music to Deal with Winter Melancholy

By Bhalachandra Sahaj

Hi everyone!

It’s the end of January outside, which means seasonal winter melancholy is probably at its peak for many people. Fortunately, there is one tested way to increase your mood instantly: good music! Today, instead of another portion of life-saving super-useful advice on writing, I’d rather like to share sunny energetic music with you. Enjoy!

Lively up yourself! Good words and a creed to live by for sure. Spring is coming, there’s one month left till spring, so cheer up and listen to reggae music.

I’ve found these guys recently, but I fell in love with their music—this song in particular—immediately. If there is an instant cure for melancholy, here it is.

I doubt Gogol Bordello needs any additional words of introduction. Pure energy, drive, and joy.

In my opinion, this one is pretty sad, but sad in a good way, if you know what I mean. Just listen to it anyways—I couldn’t leave it aside from this list.

I bet you know these chords even if you’ve lived your whole life in a jar of shoe polish.

It’s surprising how Blur managed to create such an energetic song, considering it lasts two minutes and has only a chorus and two couplets.

“Don’t worry, be happy.” You know the words, don’t you? And here is the source of this wisdom.

I heard this song in a commercial 10 years ago or so, but it still cheers me up sometimes—even though it’s performed by a boy band, haha.

This is not really my kind of music, but it’s unexpectedly good, and what is more important in January than being cheerful and inspiring? The major discovery of this winter for me for sure 🙂

Okay, that’s enough for now. Have fun, and be happy!
