Songs To Keep You Relaxed

The post-apocalypse will be very stressful for even the most emotionally stable individual, and high stress levels can overwhelm a person and impair his or her ability to make the right decisions – which is a very bad thing if you want to survive.

1. Weightless – Marconi Union
You can listen to one of the most relaxing tunes in existence: “Weightless” by Marconi Union to keep your stress in check. Scientists at the British Academy of Sound Therapy discovered through an experiment that it was able to induce “the greatest relaxation — higher than any of the other music tested.” While listening to the soothing guitar and piano sounds of “Weightless,” listeners experienced a 65 percent decline in overall anxiety. Part of its brilliance as a relaxing song is that it starts at 60 beats per minute then gradually slows to 50 beats per minute, urging the listener’s heartbeat to follow the gentler pace.

2. Mozart – Canzonetta Sull’aria
Classical music is fantastic at creating moods, which is why they are frequently used in films, TV shows and even advertisements. Certain tracks like Mozart’s “Canzonetta Sull’aria” are especially relaxing to hear, and can calm down a listener.

Songs To Make You Happy

The end of the world brings death and destruction that can make it hard for anyone to feel happy. But life needs to go on after the apocalypse, and what is the point of living if you cannot be happy. You can try listening to these upbeat songs that bring a smile to your face.

3. Happy – Pharrell Williams
The popular music app Spotify analyzed the playlists of its more than 40 million active users around the world, and it found that Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” perennially made it to their feel-good playlists. It’s hard not to starting grooving along and skipping your step while listening to this song’s joyful lyrics:

Sunshine, she’s here, you can take a break
I’m a hot air balloon that could go to space
With the air like I don’t care, baby, by the way

Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof / Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth / Because I’m happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you / Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do / Because I’m happy

4. Best Day of My Life – American Authors
Another surefire jubilation anthem is the American Authors’ “Best Day of My Life.” You may have lost everything because of the vicious terrorist attack, but listening to this upbeat track lets you imagine a brighter future.

Songs To Make You Think Positive

You must think positive if you want to continue living in the dark days of the post-apocalypse. Turn up the music when you hear these two tracks and feel the optimism flow through you like an energizer drink.

5. Stronger – Kelly Clarkson
There’s nothing like the battle cry of a powerful woman to jolt you back into a positive mindset. Grammy Award winner Kelly Clarkson might have originally sung the track as a way to get over a break-up, but its chorus can bring encouragement to doomsday survivors who feel miserably alone.

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn’t mean I’m over cause you’re gone

6. Walking On Sunshine – Katrina & the Waves
