Five songs to counter the feeling of despair from listening to 'Ultraviolence'

Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey has a way of making people feel depressed ... yet still hooked to her music.

Here are five tracks that will lift your spirits up after one too many spins of Lana Del Rey's melancholic Ultraviolence

1. Best Day Of My Life by American Authors

An over-abundance of enthusiasm found in this infectious ebullient affair.

2. You Make My Dreams by Hall and Oates

That scene where Joseph Gordon-Levitt parades around town to this 1981 track in (500) Days Of Summer will light up anyone’s day.

3. New Soul by Yael Naim

It’s hard not to smile and sing along to the track’s breezy chorus.

4. 1963 by Rachael Yamagata

The summery tone of this love song makes it a worthy addition to the weekend joyride playlist.

5. Happy by Pharrell Williams

The self-explanatory title pretty much says it all.
