A music full of good feelings and positive energy can make us feel happy.
There is a slight difference between a happy song and a piece of good feel music. Good feel music might be slow and low key, while happy songs are energetic most of the time. When we talk about a happy song we are referring to its lyrics, like the track “Happy” by “Pharrell Williams”, but in case of good feel music, we are referring to the mood of the song itself.
There is a lot of good feel music out there and a lot of playlists for good feel music and happy songs, but our recommendation is the music of the baroque era. There is no music more good feeling than the masterpieces of this great era.
Baroque music is the repertoire composed by European musicians in the years between 1600 and 1750. We should also mention that in many academic sources the baroque era is considered to be between 1599 and 1733. Many great composers have lived in this era. Among them we can name:
Johann Sebastian Bach
George Frideric Handel
Georg Philipp Telemann
But let’s go back to the good feel music. This kind of music, makes you feel relaxed while gives you positive energy. Not that kind of energy where you can get up and run or start working out, but the energy of living. It gives you the same feeling that a trip to nature can give you.
Good feel music has some special characteristics:
Clear and appealing melody
Steady common rhythm
Preferably with acoustic instruments
No usage of distortion in vocals or instruments
These qualities are just some of the few and each of them can have many sub-categories. But you get the point. In one word, the good feel music tries to imitate the lively part of nature through sound.
