What’s Your Happy Song?

I feel like we’ve finally reached a point in the year where I can safely say, “Look! Summer IS going to happen, after all!” It’s been the longest winter of my whole life (and that is NOT an exaggeration) and the combination of sunlight, clear skies, and warm temperatures can’t come soon enough.

Do your musical tastes vary with the seasons? Mine do.  What I want to listen to depends largely on whatever’s going on in my life, my general mood, and the season. Summertime always makes me turn up the upbeat songs–the anthems that beg to be listened to with the windows rolled down and my bare foot resting on the dashboard (because I’m basically the world’s safest driver).

I know a lot of people are getting sick of this song, but it THRILLS me that Pharrell Williams’s “Happy” is the number one song on iTunes right now. It just makes me happy that a feel-good song like this has struck such a chord with listeners. With that in mind, here are a few more songs that always put me in a good mood!



What about you? What songs are instant mood-lifters for you? I’m always looking for more!
