This boppy number from The Coasters was released in 1958 and became an instant hit with teenagers around the world. It’s good motivation for anyone reluctant to get the hoover out of the cupboard – if you don’t scrub that kitchen floor, you ain’t gonna rock and roll no more.
Walking on Sunshine
Surely one of the happiest songs out there, this 1985 hit by Katrina and the Waves is perfect to dance to when you’ve started your spring cleaning.
You Make My Dreams
Released in 1980 by American duo Hall & Oates, this is a fun and happy number to sing along with while you’re washing the winter grime from your windows.
Eye of the Tiger
Cleaned out the bedroom but just can’t face the rest of the house? If so, put this track on, be like Rocky, and power through the dust. This 1982 hit by Survivor was made for Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky III and has stood the test of time. Let it inspire you to show the cleaning that you’re the boss.
