Web Extra: Best Gratitude Songs from Natalie Merchant, The Beatles, Lou Reed...

Gratitude /ˈɡradəˌt(y)o͞od/ (n): the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.

Expression of gratitude are so important in life. When everything seems to be going wrong in your world, it's difficult to focus on what's good, but that's where gratitude becomes vital to happiness. There are lots of articles on reasons to practice and focus on gratitude, including this one. 

I'm not a psychologist, but in order to get you in a grateful mood, I've collected all the songs we can think of about "GRATITUDE" (thanks for your submissions on social media!) as the first in our "WYEP Presents" restorative playlists. In the future, we'll focus on other positive aspects of life like patience, kindness and humilty. If you have a suggestion, please let me know! I'll say putting this playlist made me feel more grateful and happy. Hope you find listening to it brings you the same joy.
