Most of us will encounter periods or days where we could use a hug from the universe and a couple of encouraging words. Sound is a very powerful sense and there is magic in music. When the world has you down and you could use a pick me up, here are 25 songs to help you turn those blues around.

Don’t pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found

Shine bright, tonight you and I
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Oh, I will bring their beauty home
The colors of my love

And then the sun came crashing in

No limits just epiphanies

15. “NEXT TO ME” – EMELI SANDE
When the skies are gray and all the doors are closing
And the rising pressure makes it hard to breathe
When all I need is a hand to stop the tears from falling
I will find him, I’ll find him next to me

14. “GOOD TO BE ALIVE (HALLELUJAH)” – ANDY GRAMMAR

You’re my golden sunshine

In every single way
Yes, words can’t bring you down
Oh, no
So don’t you bring me down today–

11. “CAN’T STOP THE FEELING!” – JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE
I got this feeling inside my bones
It goes electric, wavey when I turn it on
All through my city, all through my home
We’re flying up, no ceiling, when we’re in our zone

But when the night is falling
You cannot find the light
You feel your dreams are dying
Hold tight
You’ve got the music in you

Like a small boat
On the ocean
Sending big waves
Into motion
Like how a single word
Can make a heart open
I might only have one match
But I can make an explosion

8. “EMPIRE STATE OF MIND” – JAY Z & ALICIA KEYS
In New York,
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothin’ you can’t do

These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let’s hear it for New York, New York, New York

You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime

I owned every second that this world could give
I saw so many places, the things that I did
With every broken bone, I swear I lived

It’s like I got this music in my body saying it’s gonna be alright

Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you

Why I should never make a change
