Monday Melodies: Happy Mix

This Monday’s post is a bit different then previous ones.  Today I’m sharing multiple songs.  I’ve been making mixes since I was young and made mixed tapes for friends.  I’m sure many of you did that as well.  It was a lot of work and I didn’t make them often but now that we have mp3’s they are a lot easier to do.  I like to make mixes with themes and have made a few based off of tv characters or movies but the other night I decided I needed a “Happy Mix”.  I realized that I was listening to a lot of random songs in iTunes that simply made me happy.  It wasn’t necessarily the lyrics that were happy but the music itself.  They are all up beat and make me want to get up and dance (of course if you know me you know that’s not hard to do.). It makes all the trouble of rearranging my room worth the trouble.  Much more room to dance.

Here is my mix and I hope it gives you some inspiration to make one of your own.
