Monday music from my Happy Playlist

I have been sharing with you some of the songs from my happy playlist. These are songs that, for me, really help to shift my mood from moping melancholy to jumping joy.

Music is a wonderful thing, but it is also intensely personal. What works for one person doesn’t for another, but here are two ‘Monday’ related songs that I find really good music to listen to, to help deal with any Monday blues.

The Bangles – Manic Monday.  This is a strange one because the lyrics are all about it being hell because it’s Monday, but the melody is upbeat and when you sing along to it, it helps to take you out of the Monday feeling that the words are all about.


Another MONDAY song that I have always loved is by the Mamas and the Papas – Monday Monday. It doesn’t have particularly positive lyrics or a particularly upbeat rhythm but the harmonies are gorgeous.


And while we’re on the subject of Mama Cass you can’t beat this track for a huge positive boost.  It’s getting better. (well let’s hope so 😉 ) This always makes me feel Cosy and comfortable.


Whatever your plans are for today, I hope you have a fantastic day.

Wet Monday – A thought for the day.

As I sit here looking out of the window at the rain splashing against it and with my head spinning, it feel for a moment like I have accidentally been put in the washing machine on a cold wash.

I’m sipping my morning cup of tea; that magical potion that turns the wild man-ape capable only of incoherent grunts into a human. It probably isn’t a thorough transformation, there are still wild bits around the edges. As the warmth of the tea seeps into my bones and the caffeine leeches into my bloodstream and penetrates my brain, I finally feel I am able to embrace the day. Embrace or arm wrestle, whichever the day brings….Hopefully the former, because I need a hug, but prepared for the latter if necessary.

Have a great Monday everyone.
