The 10 Most 'Uplifting' Songs (According to a Scientist)

Three years ago, a smart cognitive neuroscientist guy named Dr Jacob Jolij conducted a study to determine the 10 most 'uplifting' songs, and it's making the rounds online again. Things he focused on for his were analysis were technical stuff such as lyrical theme, musical key, and tempo.

According to Mr. Jolij, "Holiday-themed lyrics naturally remind us of happy times, while a major third musical key sounds happy to our ears and something we associate with confidence. A high tempo of 150 beats per minute also subconsciously triggers a sense of energy."

Here's the list with Youtube linkage to the videos:

1.  "Don't Stop Me Now", Queen, 1978

2.  "Dancing Queen", ABBA, 1976

3.  "Good Vibrations", The Beach Boys, 1966

4.  "Uptown Girl", Billy Joel, 1983

5.  "Eye of the Tiger", Survivor, 1982

6.  "I'm a Believer", The Monkees, 1966

7.  "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun", Cyndi Lauper, 1983
