    What songs do listen to when you need a bit of a "self worth" boost?
    you know, those days when you feel blah and fat and ugly?..

    1. Just the way you are - Bruno Mars

    I thought you meant workout music. I was about to reply Metallica, cause the drum demands I try and keep up!

    I don't think I have a "cheer up" song. I just listen to lots of happy sounding pop punk! :) Or if I want a good cry some old fashioned Smashing Pumpkins, just like when I was a depressed teenager!!!!

    I have a cheer-up piece of music - Bernstein's Candide Overture. It just gets faster and faster and is great fun.

    Oh just remembered the wonderful song that is Sunscreen!! Sorry had to post the lyrics!!

    Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of ’99
    If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be
    it. The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by
    scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable
    than my own meandering
    experience…I will dispense this advice now.

    Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not
    understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded.
    But trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and
    recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before
    you and how fabulous you really looked….You’re not as fat as you
    imagine.

    Don’t worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as
    effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing
    bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that
    never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm
    on some idle Tuesday.

    Do one thing everyday that scares you

    Sing

    Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, don’t put up with
    people who are reckless with yours.

    Floss

    Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes
    you’re behind…the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with
    yourself.

    Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you
    succeed in doing this, tell me how.

    Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.

    Stretch

    Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your
    life…the most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they
    wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year
    olds I know still don’t.

    Get plenty of calcium.

    Be kind to your knees, you’ll miss them when they’re gone.

    Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll have children,maybe
    you won’t, maybe you’ll divorce at 40, maybe you’ll dance the funky
    chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary…what ever you do, don’t
    congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either – your
    choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s. Enjoy your body,
    use it every way you can…don’t be afraid of it, or what other people
    think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever
    own..

    Dance…even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.

    Read the directions, even if you don’t follow them.

    Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.

    Get to know your parents, you never know when they’ll be gone for
    good.

    Be nice to your siblings; they are the best link to your past and the
    people most likely to stick with you in the future.

    Understand that friends come and go,but for the precious few you
    should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and
    lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you
    knew when you were young.

    Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard; live
    in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.

    Travel.

    Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will
    philander, you too will get old, and when you do you’ll fantasize
    that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were
    noble and children respected their elders.

    Respect your elders.

    Don’t expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund,
    maybe you have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one
    might run out.

    Don’t mess too much with your hair, or by the time you're 40, it will
    look 85.

    Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who
    supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of
    fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the
    ugly parts and recycling it for more than
    it’s worth.

    But trust me on the sunscreen…

    Paolo Nutini makes me smile especially having seen him at the Eden Sessions last year - I love driving to him, sunroof open, windows down, music loud!

    Stevie Wonder makes me smile and can't beat a bit of Micky Bubbles! xx

    Mine is Drops of Jupiter by Train, no reason other than it's quite uplifting and reminds me of when I was younger!

    Christina Aguilera - Beautiful

    "I am beautiful .. no matter what they say ... words can't bring me down"

    I remember in an old episode of Ali McBeal (showing my age here) they said every person should have an affirmation song and this in mine.

    Hmmm, I don't really have a cheer me up song! I just tend to listen to lots of Bon Jovi and Queen at very loud volumes. Or Poets of the Fall - again, at ear-splitting volume! I'm also partial to Bryan Adams' Summer of 69.

    I do have to agree with aisling though - Pat Benatar is fab! :D Love is a Battlefield and We Belong are fabulous songs!

    More of a "get your f*t bum in gear"-song than a "pick me up"-song for me: It's My Life (Bon Jovi)
