Justin Timberlake – “Can’t Stop the Feeling”

From the family favorite move “Trolls,” Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling” is guaranteed to lift your spirits. It’s the perfect tune to get up and dance when you and your family need a pick me up. 

Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars – “Uptown Funk” 

This 2014 classic is the confidence-boosting anthem of the 2010s. Try dancing along to Bruno Mars’ cool moves in the video and you’re destined to have your whole family having the time of their lives. 

Katrina & The Waves – “Walking on Sunshine”

Based on this song’s title, there’s no doubt it would serve as a tune that’d lift your spirits. The singer in the song “feels the love” all while walking on sunshine. Does it get any better than that? This one calls for some jumping around in the yard with the kiddos for sure. 

Stevie Wonder – “Signed, Sealed, Delivered”

This Stevie Wonder classic is a sweet love song wrapped up in a blissful melody your family will most likely recognize from the get go. If you’re looking to put on a song to get the grandparents and the kids up and moving with some pep in their step, this is the one.  

Shakira – Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)

This song, partly written in Swahili was released in 2010 as the 2010 FIFA World Cup song. As a call to unite the whole world and celebrate everyone and their differences, this song and its message is one that will lift your mood no matter what.
