1. American Authors – Best Day Of My Life

Singing along is required.


2. Smash Mouth – All Star

Is there a more motivational song out there?


3. MIKA – Grace Kelly

Go on… try and hit that high note.


4. Destiny’s Child – Survivor

I’m not gonna give up, I’m not gonna stop, I’m gonna work harder.


5. Jason Mraz – I’m Yours

Put your laptop down, put your feet up and relax for a second.


6. Imagine Dragons – On Top Of The World

Even sat in a busy library, you won’t be able to resist having a little boogie to this one.


7. Katrina & The Waves – Walking On Sunshine

Walking on sunshine (…all the way to the kettle).


8. Wham! – Wake Me Up Before You Go Go

Dancing with housemates is strongly encouraged. For an extended study break recreate the whole of this music video in your kitchen.


9. Bonnie Tyler – Holding Out For A Hero

I’m holding out for a hero… or even just a housemate to make me a cup of tea.


10. Pharrell Williams – Happy

*claps along*
