After all the time at home over the past few months, the house has collected some dust and randomness, and some songs will motivate us to get after it more than others.  Not every good cleaning song has to be upbeat!

The key to a good cleaning song must be its ability to put our minds on something besides the task at hand.  If a song can trigger happy thoughts about your last hot date or help you daydream about an upcoming vacation, it's like you're not even holding a dust mop.  You're on a tropical island with your sig other and it's almost time for happy hour.  Or at least music helps.

The best songs to clean while dusting, according to Wren Kitchens, are by Lady Gaga, Dua Lipa, and Ed Sheeran.  But nobody tops Dolly Parton.  Feel free to add your own!
