36 Songs to Help Give 2017 the Fresh Start You Need


Another year has come and gone, and many people are probably totally okay with it. 2016 was a rather tough year in several respects: We lost some of the world’s biggest stars, saw tragedy strike multiple countries and witnessed an election that caused one of the biggest uproars in the United States' political history.

But with 2017 underway, the start of a new year gives us a chance to leave the hard times in the past and reset with a hopeful outlook on what’s to come — and music can provide just that.

Whether you need a pick-me-up, a way to get over someone, a message of hope, a confidence booster or even just a good cry, positive vibes are on the horizon if you start 2017 off with these tunes.
