As a music lover, I love listening to and playing different kinds of music. Recently I’ve researched on the funniest songs on YouTube and Spotify and have shortlisted 47 funny and upbeat songs that will surely cheer you up!

A very cute song about becoming more elegant and look better to impress another person.

I could be brown I could be blue I could be violet sky
I could be hurtful I could be purple I could be anything you like

41. Don’t Stop Me Now – Queen

I think this is a very nice song to play (or sing) to someone if they’re trying to stop you from having a good time.

Don’t stop me now I’m having such a good time
I’m having a ball
Don’t stop me now
If you wanna have a good time just give me a call

42. Money Money Money – Abba

Funny but sad song about the reality…

I work all night, I work all day, to pay the bills I have to pay  Ain’t it sad
And still there never seems to be a single penny left for me  That’s too bad

Another song from Grease, the approach of trying to motivate the girl is quite funny.

Beauty school dropout, No graduation day for you.
Beauty school dropout, Missed your midterms and flunked shampoo!

The rap is cool, but we only remember the vanilla ice baby. Yes, our fault.

Ice ice baby, Vanilla
Ice ice baby, Vanilla

45. You Can’t Roller Skate In A Buffalo Herd – Roger Miller

The lyrics are just so cute about skating in different places!

Ya can’t roller skate in a buffalo herd  But you can be happy if you’ve a mind to
Ya can’t take a shower in a parakeet cage  But you can be happy if you’ve a mind to

46. YOLO – The Lonely Island, Adam Levine, Kendrick Lamar

#YOLO, the way the song’s telling people to live the moment is funny. I particularly like these lines:

Never go to loud clubs  ‘Cause it’s bad for your ears.
Your friends will all be sorry  When they can’t hear.

47. Axel F – Crazy Frog

Bing bing bing bing, bing bing, bing bing bing bing, bing bing bing…. BANG BANG… can you think of anything funnier and crazier than this?

Just follow and listen to the complete playlist here on Spotify:

Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

The ability to reinvent and redefine yourself is a bold, daring and purposeful choice. It doesn’t just happen. You have to make a conscious, intentional choice and then follow through.

If the thought of forging a new path, changing habits, thought patterns and your inner circle of friends scares you – you’re not alone. Change can be a very scary thing. It takes courage, fortitude and a bit of faith to decide to shed your old self and don a new persona. However, it is one of the most critical processes one must repeatedly endure in the pursuit of destiny. Change unlocks new levels of potential.

The Need for Change

Everyday when we wake up, we make a decision. We decide to follow our routine or we decide to go off script and shake things up a bit. For those who are creatures of habit, routine is comfortable, easy and produces very little stress. The problem with this is, after a while you stop growing.

We all reinvent ourselves at some point in our lives. It is absolutely necessary to achieve certain levels of success.

Reflect back on who you were as a teenager and then who you were at 25. Those are two very different people. Most of us are completely different. Your thought patterns changed, your appearance, job, level of education and even your friends– changed. We like to refer to this as “growing up” or maturing and consider it to be one of life’s natural progressions. However the changes you made were purposeful and deliberate.

This process must be a lifelong and continuous cycle. You are never too old to refresh yourself.

    Signs It’s Time to Redefine

    “Just as established products and brands need updating to stay alive and vibrant, you periodically need to refresh or reinvent yourself.”– Mireille Guiliano

    So how do you know when it’s time for a system upgrade? There are signs along the way that alert you that it is time for an overhaul. The first sign is the feeling of being stuck. If you feel like you are in a rut, you’re bored with life or you need some newness and excitement, a self reinvention may be in order. Re-evaluate your life vision and your goals. Is that vision still valid and are your goals consistent with your vision and–are they achievable? If you are off course, it’s time for a change. If you are not moving forward and making progress, it’s time for a change.

    In life, there’s no such thing as neutrality–you’re either moving forward or you are moving backward. Time constantly moves forward and if you are standing still, you are actually losing ground. No matter your age or stage in life– there is always room for improvement.

    “You’re never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream.” ~C. S. Lewis

    The second sign that you are due for a change is the occurrence of major life events in which change is forced upon you. Getting married, starting a new job, being promoted, ending a relationship, becoming a parenting or relocating are all prime opportunities to completely overhaul your life.

    Advertising

    When these major shifts occur in your life–you have to shift with them. You can’t have a single mentality and have a successful marriage. You can’t remain selfish and irresponsible, and raise a healthy, well-adjusted child. You can’t be promoted to a supervisory position and keep the same subordinate attitude. Each level of success requires something different from you.

    Aronld in Predator

      Consider, for a moment, Arnold Schwarzenegger. People may have different opinions about his character and some of his life choices, but he is a master at reinventing himself. He achieved the ultimate success as a professional body builder by earning the title “Mr. Universe” three times. He then earned a tremendous amount of fame and fortune in the entertainment industry making action/adventure films. And in his latest role, he served two terms as the Governor of California. He succeeded as a professional body builder, a film star and a politician. Each role required massive amounts of change, commitment, strength and hard work.

      And if Arnold can do it…so can you!
