    25 Songs That'll Give You That "Everything Will Be Okay" Feeling

    "It feels like the sonic version of someone giving you a hug and telling you it will all be okay."

    Recently, we asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which songs they listen to when they want to feel better. Here are some of their answers:

    1. "Breathin" by Ariana Grande

    Republic Records

    "It reminds me that even though I feel the weight of the world on my shoulders, I am alive and I just have to breathe and try not to let anxiety get the best of me."


    2. "Hard Feelings / Loveless" by Lorde


    "This song always makes me feel better because the beginning of it describes the ending of her relationship and her realizing she’ll eventually heal from it. After 'Hard Feelings', 'Loveless' starts playing and it’s more upbeat and basically an 'I’m over it' type of break up anthem."


    3. "24/7" by Kehlani

    Atlantic Records

    "It just reminds me that everything's gonna be alright and that everybody has bad times in their lives. The beat also helps calm me down."


    4. “Here Comes the Sun” by The Beatles


    "It just always makes me smile and reminds me that things can and will get better."


    5. "In My Blood" by Shawn Mendes

    Universal Island Records

    "It reminds me that even when I'm absolutely hating life and wanting to give up, it's not who I am to give into the depression I'm feeling. It makes me very determined to thrive as a person."


    6. "Rise Up" by Andra Day


    "I started my first listen with a good cry and ended it with a smile on my face. That's what this song does to me each and every time. It reminds me that we’re all human, and that if we have faith and work towards our goals, it’ll all be fine."


    7. "I'll Make a Man Out of You" from Mulan


    "It's so inspirational. It makes me feel strong and that I can do anything!"


    8. "I Am Not a Robot" by Marina

    Neon Gold Records

    "It helps me remember that it’s okay not to be okay all the time."


    9. "Epiphany" by BTS


    "I've struggled with self-love for a long time, but whenever I hear the lyric, 'I'm the one I should love in this world,' it reminds me to love myself first."


    10. "Landslide" by Fleetwood Mac

    Warner Bros. Records

    "It's a song I can listen to to get me through ANYTHING. It gives me hope when I'm feeling down, it makes me feel extra grateful when I'm happy, and it helps me bawl my eyes out when I need a good cry. Pure magic."


    11. "The Climb" by Miley Cyrus


    "I’ve been listening to that song since I was 10. Now I'm 19 and I still listen to it whenever I’m feeling really defeated and sad."


    12. "You’ll Be in My Heart" from Tarzan


    "It holds a special place in my heart and I sing it to my dog or to myself whenever one of us is sad."


    13. “Vienna” by Billy Joel

    "There’s a lot of comfort in the song for when you feel like you’re trying to do anything and everything, or when you feel like you’re falling behind. The soothing melody and generally quiet nature of 'Vienna' has brought me out of a panic attack several times."


    14. "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor

    "Best song ever for after a breakup, or any disappointment for that matter."


    15. "Day Is Done" by Peter, Paul and Mary

    Warner Bros. Records

    "The chorus says, 'All will be well when the day is done,' so it reminds me that there are things I can't control, and, at the end of the day, everything will be okay."


    16. "You Belong With Me" by Taylor Swift

    Big Machine Records

    "I don't know why — I guess it just reminds me of a simpler time where this song played on the radio and all I had to worry about was my crush not liking me back."


    17. “Upgrade U” by Beyoncé

    Parkwood Entertainment

    "It never fails to make me feel like a boss a$$ bitch ready to take on the world!"


    18. "Once Upon Another Time" by Sara Bareilles


    "It's a nice zone-out type of song. The tight harmonies help tune everything out."


    19. "Just Dance" by Lady Gaga

    Interscope Records

    "I blast it while crying and ALWAYS feel better after!"


    20. "The Middle" by Jimmy Eat World

    Interscope Records

    "Every time life hits me hard, I listen to it to remind myself that this is just the middle of the road and that better times are ahead."


    21. "Three Little Birds" by Bob Marley

    "I even got three little birds tattooed on my wrist to remind me that every little thing is gonna be alright!"


    22. "Tragedy + Time" by Rise Against

    Fat Wreck Chords

    "It feels like the sonic version of someone giving you a hug and telling you it will all be okay."


    23. "Try" by Colbie Caillat

    Republic Records

    "I’ve struggled a lot with body image issues and dermatillomania (compulsive skin-picking), so the first time I saw the music video for this song, I think I cried. I hadn’t listened to it in a while, but today it came on and I just felt the tension in my shoulders lessen. It was like a little voice whispering in my ear, 'You are enough.'"


    24. "What's Up" by 4 Non Blondes

    Interscope Records

    "It's so powerful and energetic, plus it gives me the sensation of a fresh start."


    25. "Clean" by Taylor Swift

    "I remember during one of her shows, before she played this song, Taylor said, 'I now believe that pain makes you stronger. And now, I believe that walking through a lot of rainstorms gets you…clean.' That really stuck with me."
