Every week we will be sharing new tunes for you to add to your work playlist. These are some of our favorite songs that speak to us; they have a meaningful and relevant message to what we do and believe is important here at TeamBonding, or simply just get us pumped up and motivated when we need that extra boost. Whether you are working from home or in the office, these songs are sure to liven up your mood and start your week on a good note.
Motivation & Team Building With Music
We have a theory that music can influence your mood, which in turn can influence your actions and the outcome of those actions. Music can inspire you to think differently; it can evoke emotions or thoughts, and promote creativity. On an individual level, music can give you the motivation to get up and get something done, or take charge – and on a collaborative level, it can make team building more effective.
So check us out every Monday for our song of the week – we know you could use that extra little push on a Monday morning, anyway!
Our song choice to start off the Music Monday series is the recent OneRepublic hit “Better Days.” The song was released in April 2020 and is an optimistic track during dark times. The lyrics say “Oh, I know that they’ll be better days/Oh, that sunshine ’bout to come my way. May we never ever shed another tear for today/’Cause oh, I know that they’ll be better days.” The song aims to give listeners a sense of hope for the uncertain future.
OneRepublic is an American pop rock band from Colorado Springs, Colorado. It consists of lead vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Ryan Tedder, guitarist Zach Filkins, guitarist Drew Brown, bassist and cellist Brent Kutzle, drummer Eddie Fisher, and keyboardist Brian Willett.
