Songs that Celebrate Self-Love

Songs that Celebrate Self-Love

Music can change my mood instantly. That’s why whenever I’m feeling a little down, I turn up the tunes and dance around my room. It’s the quickest way to make myself feel better.

I’ve been working on building mood-specific playlists to be able to access at a moments notice. I’ll continue to share them here as I make more. This first one is pretty special.

Check out my Self-Love Playlist on Spotify. It’s perfect for those moments when you need a little boost of confidence, for those times you’re doubting your self worth and need a little reminder from Kelly Clarkson and RuPaul of how freaking awesome you are. From upbeat pop hits to strong ballads, you’ll find yourself grinning as you hum along at the gym, in the car, or at your desk.

Here are some highlights from the track list:

“I’m Coming Out” – Diana Ross

Regarded as a class LGBTQ+ anthem, this will always be my favorite Diana Ross song and it deserves a top spot on this playlist. It’s upbeat and breezy and can put a spring in your step. Walk down the streets to this disco beat and let the world know you’re here!

“You Gotta Be” – Des’ree

One of the chiller tracks on this list, this song encourages you to express yourself and know that you are strong for doing so. Love will save the day, indeed. Self-love, that is!

“Born This Way” – Lady Gaga

This dance hit quickly became a pride staple, and deservedly so. While I’m not a religion person, the sentiment is stronger than those particular lyrics in my opinion. This classic Gaga track makes a strong statement, and it’s a nice reminder that I, too, am on the right track.

“Don’t Stop Me Now” – Queen

This is the song that pops in my head whenever I’m on cloud nine. The fasttempo, the fun lyrics, and Freddie’s vocals all make this a upbeat track a great one to celebrate your inner power. Listen to it when you’re feeling low and psyche yourself out!

“Titanium” – David Guetta, featuring Sia

This is definitely one of those songs that I’ve belted out in the shower after a breakup. Listen to Sia, don’t let anyone tear you down. YOU ARE TITANIUM.

“Good As Hell” – Lizzo

Lizzo is the intersectional hero we all need, and all of her music clearly reflects this. I strive to be as confident as Lizzo seems. Play this track when you’re getting ready in the morning and you’ll feel good as hell about yourself too.

“Up From the Mud” – Boy Band

One of my favorite bands in the New York area, Boy Band is a group of three young women who make really empowering music. This track, a personal highlight on their first EP, encourages you to be the “strongest flower rising from the mud.”

    GREAT idea. It would be so helpful to have a playlist ready to go when you’re feeling down and need a pick me up. I am definitely stealing this idea! How about Abba?! I always think they boost my mood like crazy!
