This time of year can sometimes get us lost in a daily rigmarole of winter blues, but today on The Tig we’re offering you a fresh dose of unbridled joy with a playlist that will perk you right up. Turn these tracks on as you’re getting ready in the morning, when you need a mid-afternoon pick-me-up, or during your next evening celebration. Because when the air is filled with positive vibes, there’s no winter cold that can block out the warmth of happy hearts.

Starting us off is the addictive and adorable Maggie Rogers. This song simply puts you in an easy-going and positive mood from the moment you press play. A happy-go-lucky ode to our beloved City of Angels, this track fulfills our daily requirement for some California dreamin’. This easy-as-pie tune provides the perfect background for any productivity session or reflective moment. Put it on to totally tune in or totally zone out (whatever the day calls for). Talk about a song that makes us want to get our groove on. This fun track is simply perfect for singing along and dancing in the living room like no one’s watching. We love ourselves some (multi-talented and beautiful) Janelle Monáe. We challenge you to listen to this tune without tapping your feet or turning up your speakers. Reminding us of the importance of just letting loose, this care-free song is the perfect anthem for the necessity of levity. “Just swing it like it’s tied by a string that you hold, and let it go.” Amen, baby.
