Exactly what the title says- a playlist of songs to listen to during a sunny day, to keep you in a happy mood! It's sad just how long it took me to make this... most of the songs I listen to are of the "dying-of-a-broken-heart" variety (no, I am not a country girl. None of them involve trucks) so compiling this one took quite a few scrolls through my iPod. (Yes. I still have an iPod with a click wheel, and I hope it never breaks. Am I the only one?) However, I didn't mind because doing this made me feel like Charlie, putting together a mixtape. (Yes. I do think too much about characters who don't actually exist.)
So, without further ado... here are some happy songs! (Links to Youtube provided, so you have no excuse not to listen!)
1- 22, by Taylor Swift. (Even if you're not a fan of hers, you've got to admit that this is a great song for dancing around and generally acting like an idiot.)
2- Crazy in Love, by Emeli Sandé. (I just had to include something from the Great Gatsby!... and yes, it did fulfill all my wildest hopes and dreams, thanks for asking)
3- How to be a Heartbreaker, by Marina & the Diamonds. (I'm not certain if this is altogether good advice... but it's fun, and that's all that matters!)
4- Spaghetti, by Darelle London. (Too. Cute. Eating spaghetti, watching Breakfast at Tiffany's, and hang-gliding- which I don't know how to spell- must mean true love.)
5- Home, by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros.
(This song is just so bouncy! It just makes me want
to skip down the street... I wouldn't advise that.)
6- Stupid, by Brendan Maclean. (Let's face it, we all know people like this...)
7- I've Just Seen a Face, by Jim Sturgess- Beatles cover. (That accent. Swoon.)
8- B.C. Orienteering, by Said the Whale. (Who doesn't love a song about hiking?)
9- First Dance, by Never Shout Never. (Another one that'll make you feel like dancing.
Can't you just picture spinning round and round with a floaty skirt?...
or an otherwise nice outfit if you're a guy or don't like skirts,
I don't want to discriminate)
10- Skinny Genes, by Eliza Doolittle. (This is the one song that makes me wish I could
whistle so I could sing it properly...)
11- Summer Nights, by Florrie. (Ending with a super-energizing song- go out for a run!
Or tan, because it seems appropriately summery.)
Have you heard any of these songs? Did you like them?
