Listen to Gaja's top 10 mood-setters!

1. The Mountain – Faouzia

I found this song totally by accident, and it's stuck with me ever since. It really boosts my motivation and makes me feel like anything is possible.

2. Rita Ora – Let You Love Me

It's just one of those songs you end up listening to, even though you heard it 1,000 times already. I also see myself in the lyrics, so I guess that helped as well. :)

3. Cigarettes After Sex – Cry

Motivational songs are great, but every playlist needs a breath of fresh air. This is definitely a song I play when I feel like relaxing after a long day and it always delivers. Oh, and the lyrics are wonderful!

4. Paul Kalkbrenner – No Goodbye

The first time I heard this song was live at a musical festival and just as the sun was rising, so you can imagine it has a special place in my heart.

5. Wicked Game – Chris Isaak

Despite all the "breakup" comments on YouTube, I find this song to be pretty mystical and erotic, so naturally I fell in love with it. It's a must have for me!

6. Lady Gaga – Always Remember Us This Way

When I first saw A Star is Born at the cinema and heard this song, I cried like a baby. I'm pretty sure this is one of those songs that stay with you forever, even if everyone says it's such a cliché.

7. Sam Smith – How Do You Sleep?

I've been a fan of Sam Smith since 2012 because he always seemed like such a genuine guy, and I was absolutely ecstatic when he released this song. It is just so unfiltered and he really shows his true self, I love it!

8. Billie Eilish – Bad Guy

The weirder it gets, the more I like it. And that's what I love about "Bad Guy" and Billie Eilish! It's also a great motivational song for when I hit the gym.

9. Rihanna – Love on the Brain

It's not your typical turn it up song, but it is Rihanna and really does make an impact. It's also one of the regular songs I cover at my performances, so it had to be here.

10. Selena Gomez – Lose You to Love Me

I've never been a real fan of Selena, but this song hits home and I wouldn't do it justice if I left it out of my top 10. Listen to it carefully, it's powerful!
