Hands down, the best feeling in the world is driving with the windows down singing at the top of your lungs. Even if you’re by yourself jamming out, you know those songs that make you feel like your life is a movie? All of them are making your serotonin levels skyrocket. I have spent the last few months on a search for the ultimate perfection playlists that are filled to the brim with nothing but serotonin boosting songs. Trust me, there are a lot of people out there making these types of playlists (myself included), but they always have a few duds that kill the vibe. Good news is, my days of trying to perfect my own playlist for this feeling are over because I have found the ten best spotify playlists guaranteed to boost your serotonin levels immediately.
1. “My Life Is A Movie”- Spotify
This playlist is exactly as it sounds, like a movie album. Turn this on with the windows down and some ligloss on and get ready to feel like you can take over the world. This playlist does exactly as the title says, reminds you that your life is a movie and you, baby, are the main character. You’ll be filled with serotonin pushing you to go out and live your dream life.
2. “Seretonin”- NoelTroyer
This playlist perfectly encapsulates the feeling you get when youre with your best friends in the middle of summer jumping from beach to beach with a drink in your hand and no cares in the world. This playlist is filled with songs all of your bffs will know the words to so that you can sing together all night long and have the time of your life.
3. “Let’s Makeout”- The Mayfair Group
The Mayfair Group is perfect at curating playlists for specific moments. Their playlist, “Let’s Makeout” will fill your head with steamy makeout sessions from movies, tv, or maybe your own real life and you’ll be left daydreaming about you and your love interest. (Because every main character has a love interest, duh.). My personal favorite is to listen to this playlist right after I spend time with the guy I like. I then spend the next few hours of my life with a head full of serotonin and am ready to take on the world.
4. “Song’s To Sing In The Shower”- Spotify
Don’t be fooled by the title, this playlist is perfect for moments in and outside the shower. You are guaranteed to want to belt your heart out to these classic songs. I like the fact that this playlist is filled with some older classic songs as well as new and trendy ones. It always hits the sweet spot when I’m feeling like just singing it all out. (When I listen to this playlist I usually find myself in the shower for way too long.).
5. “Serotonin Booster”- Anoushka Zena
User, Anoushka Zena absolutely nailed the perfect serotonin playlist. This one is filled with classic songs AND songs I had never heard before adding the playlist. Now, those new songs are some of my go-to serotonin booster songs. That alone is a main reason this playlist made my list, all too often serotonin playlists have the same old songs on them but this time, it’s totally different. If you’re on the hunt for new mood booster songs, this is a must see playlist.
6. “MAIN CHARACTER”- Lonely Ghost
I love this playlsit curated by Lonely Ghost because it has a little bit of sass to it. The songs on here not only feel good roof off the car vibes but also some bad bitch vibes that make you remember exactly who you are.
7. “Songs To Scream at The Top Of Your Lungs”- Rangers3030113
Even reading the name of this playlist gets me hyped up. “Songs to Scream At The Top Of Your Lungs” gets me hyped up and well, makes me want to sing at the top of my lungs. You will not only want to dance it out to these songs but you’ll be ready to get all your feelings out in one jam sesh.
8. “Main. Character.”- David Welch
Baby, you are the main character. Sometimes we all need a reminder of that. This playlist is perfect for those moments. When you forget who the fuck you are, come looking for this one.
9. “We Are In a Coming of Age Movie”- Keanawoods66
I like the twist on this playlist because it is more background songs for the movie of your life. Rather than just sitting in your car and singing along, you’ll find yourself pondering life and clearing your head with these jams playing in the background. They perfectly create an album for all of life’s ups and downs.
10. ‘That Scene In A Coming Of Age Film Where The Main Character Realizes They’re At The Peak Of Their Life”- Kendall Moore
Had to finish off with this playlist because it is arguably the most motivating playlist here. It will make you want to get up and show everyone who’s boss because baby, you are not meant to be walked all over. This is YOUR life, YOUR story, don’t let anyone else steal the spotlight.
Listen to any of these ten serotonin-boosting playlists and I guarantee your day can go from 0 to 100 real quick. Don’t forget, you’re the main character and it’s okay to need to remind yourself of that from time to time. Listen to music that makes you feel good, always!
