"Good Life" OneRepublic
This month is a bit dreary with the change of weather, so there might be some mood swings and cranky people around.

"Don't Stop Believin'" - Journey
A 1981 classic rock anthem from the band's album Escape is a bit slower than the other tracks on the list but its message has been going strong for years.

"Give Me Everything" Pitbull ft. Ne-Yo, AfroJack & Nayer
Blazers, this may be your last chance to go out and just have fun before the heavier loads of work are brought on by the school year, so enjoy it while you can. "Give Me Everything" has an infectious vibe that makes you want to jump up and dance. Grab a group of friends or take a break from your study group and have some fun, but once you start dancing you may not want to stop.

"Twist and Shout" The Beatles
Let's add something a little funky and classic to this line up with The Beatles. John Lennon's vocals really wake you up and find enough energy to match that voice. Sometimes it's just fun to move around and go crazy to let out all the stress building up inside you. This song offers a great way to just let loose and just sing along. So go, shake it up, twist and shout!
