News editor Adriana Briscoe covered in her personal column “Lyrics produce negative emotions, negative reactions” how slow, melancholy songs can illicit depressing feelings in oneself. In contrast to this, Adriana feels that it is important to mix in those songs that create a more upbeat feeling in its listeners. In light of this, her and I have compiled a playlist of those very songs.

  1. Pon de Replay– Rihanna
  2. Treasure– Bruno Mars
