The “Getting Lucky” Playlist

St. Patrick’s Day is steadily approaching and is known for being a celebratory day to bring people luck.

At the very least, these songs will get you pumped up and excited for the day because sometimes we have to make our own luck. That being said, this playlist could be the extra push that you need.

2. “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing” – Tori Kelly

Kelly’s rendition of this Stevie Wonder classic is an absolute masterpiece. Not only do her strong vocals carry the song over a powerful melody, but this song also acts as a simple reminder to listeners that it’s ok to let loose and not ‘worry about a thing.’

5. “Home Alone” – Ansel Elgort

Here’s another hype song to get you through the night. Elgort’s lyrics speak to what every person is thinking at the end of a night out; that they don’t want to go home alone and according to the song,, if you’ve played your cards right, you won’t run into that problem.

6. “Lucky Strike” – Troye Sivan
