Happy Playlist

Mostly when I want to hear music, I hit Pandora.  They tend to have the right mix to get me in whatever groove I'm looking for.  But I also have a wide variety of music on my hard drive.  It's all from either CDs I have on hand or from music files I've purchased. 

Of that, I have certain songs that are grouped together (I mean other than by artist or album), and one of my playlists is simply called 'Happy' .  It's comprised of songs that just make me smile.  Here's what's on it...

Sometimes I start at the beginning and go down the list. Other times, I put it on shuffle.  Sometimes, like this morning, I pull out a particular song and just listen to that*.

If you had a Happy Playlist what would be on it?  

*This morning's song was Biggest Man in Los Angeles by Andy Grammer.


  1. Okay, I'm not surprised to see we have a large number of recording artists in common. I must check out Darius Rucker though. Somehow, he hasn't popped up on my radar that I know of. A few on my happy list:

    Sail Away - Enya
    Bottoms Up - Brantley Gilbert
    She's Got the Look - Roxette

    I think it's time to turn off the TV and switch on the music! :D

    1. I don't know if you remember, Silver, but Darius Rucker used to be the lead singer for Hootie and the Blowfish. Years later, he started his solo country/western career. I really like that one album. =o)

      Ooo, good songs, too!

      Heh. I just switched on the TV. Dark Passage with Bogart and Bacall is on.

    2. I didn't realize that but I'll certainly track him down now! Thanks. :)

  2. Lots of great songs and artists! I'm a huge country music fan. HUGE. Also a Bare Naked Ladies fan! I love that you have a playlist titled Happy. Everyone should have one of those :D

    1. I never was a huge country music fan, Karyn (except for that year I spent hanging out in a place called The Wagon Wheel), but every once in a while, some band or artist or song will strike me. Love the BNL. They're so fun. And yes, everyone should have a Happy playlist. (But I also have one called Bummed - for THOSE days.)
