Ten Good Songs For Anyones Playlist

Do you ever get in to your friends car and they start playing songs off their playlist and you wish you had a good list of music like that to listen to while you're at the gym or going for that early morning run? Well what I have created here for you is a list of quality songs full of throwbacks and current music or even hip hop and disco. These are songs with a great beat that will get you in a good mood and songs that you will probably recognize but just couldn't remember the names of. I present now the first bunch of some of my favourite songs.

All Star - Smash Mouth

The first time you might have heard this was in the first Shrek movie right in the opening scenes. I credit that movie with having one of the best music soundtracks ever with it also featuring songs such as "I'm a Believer" and "Hallelujah" amongst many others. However out of them all All Star by Smash Mouth was my personal favourite. Every time it comes on in the car it always gets turned up to full volume. It will forever be one of those jams from my childhood.

Angel - Shaggy ft Rayvon

Shaggy must have one of the most recognizable voices around and its so catchy. Angel is no different. This is one of those songs that when Shaggy starts singing you can't help but try and keep up and sing along. This is the type of song you'll keep playing on repeat all the time. This one is right up there with his other big hit "It wasn't me" which I also highly recommend. Both very deserving number 1 hits back in their day.

Danza Kuduro - Don Omar & Lucenzo

This has to be the best summer beach party song that there ever was. Mostly all the lyrics are... yes, in spanish but it does not compromise the beat and groove of this song. I guarantee that you will like this song and if you play it at a party everyone will think you're the man! This song was a number 1 Billboard hot latin song, and a remake of it was featured in FastFive.

Down the Road - C2C

Now out of all the songs on this list, this may be the on that stands out as the one you do not recognize. This song has flown under the radar but it is one I picked especially for this list as one to surprise all readers. It could be possibly the catchiest songs on this list, give it a chance.

Hey Ya! - Outkast

"Shake it like a Polaroid picture!"

Outkast produces some great music, but none of their songs are as good as Hey Ya!. I'm sure a lot of you have heard this one before but if you haven't it is a must have for everyones playlist. All and all a great song for anyone and everyone.

Ignition (Remix) - R. Kelly

Hot and fresh out the kitchen, Ignition by R. Kelly is the type of song that can get anyone in a feel good mood. Between this and "I believe I can fly" R. Kelly is certainly an artist to look in to. Certainly a throwback to 2003.

Rather Be - Clean Bandit ft. Jess Glynne

Part of Clean Bandit's album "New Eyes", Rather be is defiantly my favourite song from 2014. This song only peaked as high as number 10 on Billboards Hot 100 but it definitely in my opinion should have been a number 1 hit. The lyrics are great, the instrumentals are great and come the summer this will definitely be a song to blast and roll your windows down to.

Sexual Healing - Maxamillion

This is a remix of a popular song from none other then Marvin Gaye. Now not many people have heard of this remix because Marvin Gaye's (I am a huge fan as well over Marvin Gaye) version is still a hit to this day, and Max-A-Million didn't produce to many singles. However I certainly recommend going and listening to this remix, it is unbelievably catchy.

Turn Me On - Kevin Lyttle

Turn Me On, is another throwback to 2003 and another top 10 hit back in its day. Not really to much to say about this one but certainly a great song a top R&B hit.

Wake Me Up - Avicii

Avicii never fails. He is a swedish DJ, and has produced a ton of great songs in the last couple years,  "Levels and "Hey Brother" just to name a few. Released back in 2013 Wake Me Up was a hit then and is still a hit today. This will be another great song for summer car rides and I certainly look for Avicii to produce more greats singles in the near future.

These are some of my personal favourites and I am sure there are some in this short list that will be a winner between you and your friends. Hope you enjoy!
