Does the idea of your nips reaching their destination two minutes before you bring you joy? Fuck no! We’re talking frigid temps and tight leggings, the spitting image of sausage casings. Lack of gingerbread and booze typically gives us the blues.
But not this year.
I refuse to let the gloom seep in. I choose JOY and so should you! Our post-holiday survival strategy includes a playlist of boogie tunes, a big ‘ol procrastinator To-Do list, and a chance to dance like no one’s watching [’cause we’re all hunkered down at home].
1. Lizzo ✦ Good As Hell
Lizzo is the hip happenin’ embodiment of girl power. Favourite Lizzo lyric “Thick thighs save lives”
2. Jonas Brothers ✦ Cool
Didn’t think I was a JoBro fan until the new Happiness Begins album proved otherwise. Fave line “Woke up feelin’ like a new James Dean”
3. Grace ft. G. Eazy ✦ You Don’t Own Me
A great remake of a powerful song. Fave line “So just let me be myself, that’s all I ask of you”
4. Michael Kiwanuka ✦ Cold Little Heart
Fans of Big Little Lies will recognize this hauntingly beautiful tune. Fave line “I believe if I just try, you believe in you and I”
5. The Highwomen ✦ Redesigning Women
Impossible to choose only one line from this female supergroup, so listen closely to them all! “Redesigning women – running the world while we’re cleaning up the kitchen – and breaking every Jell-O mold”
6. The Revivalists ✦ All My Friends
An ode to my friends! Fave line “It’s a brand new world, I got a brand new heart, and everyday I make a brand new start”
7. Lindsay Ell ✦ Waiting On You
A Calgary girl, Lindsay was nominated for a 2019 CMA award. Fave line “Like a sailboat wishing for the wind to blow, like a fast car looking for the green to go”
8. Jason Mraz ✦ Have It All
The epitome of a happy song! Fave line “May you know the meaning of the word happiness, may you always lead from the beating in your chest”
9. Caitlin Crosby ✦ Just Another Day
Fave line “Just a little bit dirtier, just a little bit flirtier, just a little bit skinnier, just a little messed up”
10. Imagine Dragons ✦ On Top Of The World
YOLO! Fave line “And I know it’s hard when you’re falling down, and it’s a long way up when you hit the ground, get up now, get up, get up now”
11. The Mynabirds ✦ Numbers Don’t Lie
“Don’t mean nothing, just a bad dream – even if you think it’s more”
12. Zac Brown Band ✦ Someone I Used To Know
“When you keep on losin’ with the path you’re choosin’ and it’s time to let go”
13. Scissor Sisters ✦ Take Your Mama Out
“Gonna take your mama out all night, yeah we’ll show her what it’s all about, we’ll get her jacked up on some cheap champagne, we’ll let the good times all roll out”
14. P!nk ✦ Hustle
“Bitch, please, don’t try to hustle me”
15. for KING & COUNTRY ✦ Joy
“Yeah, I choose joy, let it move you, let it move, let it move you”
