Here are five ‘back-in-the-day’ uplifting bangers to get you to the weekend!
1. Garage fave: Battle – Wookie feat. Lain.
Now some of you might be a little young to know this song, but this is a straight garage classic! From God never failing and Him sending the word [you need] to be restored, this track is sure to encourage you during ‘one of those days’ at school or work; reminding you to always have faith regardless of the situation. It also helps that this tune will get you in the dancing mood!
2. I Will Bless The Lord – Byron Cage
If you’re a big Gospel head, then you’ll love this one! I Will Bless The Lord is one of those songs that make you feel super empowered! The vocals, the message, the Rhythm are sure to make you want to declare the goodness of God!
3. I Miss You – Tommy Vercetti
Whilst this isn’t a ‘back-in-the-day’ track, it is most definitely a track re-winded to the beginning of the year. If you love house music then this big House tune is an absolute banger! The hard-core piano heard throughout is everything! Bringing back that 90’s vibe, I Miss You is definitely in my top 10 songs of this year!
4. Roses Are Red – Mac Band feat. McCampbell Brothers
Who doesn’t love this song?! Heard at BBQ’s, parties or most likely out of your parent’s stereo, we all know this absolute classic– well if you didn’t you do now! This song is that one song that gets everybody up on their feet, smiling and grooving. What a timeless classic!
5. Happy – Pharrell Williams
‘Can’t nothing bring me down… because I’m happy.’ Released last year, this song had the whole world clapping, dancing and as it rightly says still making us happy! We love this because even though we’re not happy all of the time, when happiness does occur it is the truth!
