One great way to keep the positive vibes flowing in your home is to listen to upbeat music. While the widely panned celebrity attempt at singing John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ may not have done much to cheer you up, there are certainly many songs that will. Here are 15 great tunes we suggest playing to help improve your mood while you're in quarantine.
