Works For Me

These songs work best among all happy, motivational, live your dream songs out there. I don't know why, but they do. For some reason other songs that should make the list didn't, because they just don't motivate me. It could also be that I listened to them when I did something that just wasn't working out. That's why these songs are "Magic".

  1. Don't Stop Believin'
  2. Don't Stop Me Now

  5. Xanadu

  8. Eagle Fly Free
  9. Dreams = Van Halen
  10. It Can Happen
  11. Hold On
  12. Daydream
  13. Everything Is Awesome
  14. What a Feeling
  15. Mr. Blue Sky






Doesn't this intro sound like the Van Halen song you just heard?

13 Just kidding?

Alex from "Steeltown" spun, oh how she spun. She spun her way into our hearts, and into that dance school. She reached up & grabbed that chain to nowhere and ju

    The work he did with Tom Petty and others deserves more recognition. When Roy Orbison heard his final draft of "You Got It", he was moved to tears by what Jeff had done with it. The timpanis, the piano part, all the extras were all Jeff.

    I created a reddit post on why I think Mr. Blue Sky is the perfect song. Among the many reasons, it's the only song featuring a fire-extinguisher as a percussive instrument, the coolest use of the vocoder ever, captures what it was like to tune in a station on an analogue radio, ends with instructions to "please turn me over" capturing how cool records really were. I never tire of that song, though I can't listen to it if I'm unhappy, seems wrong to do so. That song pretty much defines what happiness is to me, a modern Ode to Joy.

    He co-wrote Runnin' down a dream with Tom Petty which is probably why I like it so much.

    Honestly,I feel like I could write an essay on why I like each of the ELO famous hits. Indeed, possibly my favourite song of all time is Mr Blue Sky-it's an absolute musical masterstroke and it's so life-affirming...

    People LOVED his Hyde Park performance-I know I'm a tad biased but it genuinely received full marks from critics.One of me parent's friends who went to the Festival In A Day said Lynne absolutely stole the show.

    Brilliant list.

    I especially like Runnin' down a dream-it's my favourite song to listen to when I go jogging :))
