sunshine

This mix was inspired by two different conversations this week. One friend recently ended a long relationship. Rather than wallow in the blues, or play Marvin Gaye’s Here my Dear over and over again, he’s decided to listen to unabashedly happy music. Another is suffering the effects of too much sunshine.

Heavy Makes You Happy – Staple Singers

Bang the Drum All Day – Todd Rundgren

I Missed The Bus Again – Skankin’ Pickle

Mr. E’s Beautiful Blues – The Eels

Punchdrunk – Béla Fleck

The Golden Road – The Bobs

note: there’s also this awesome live version by Yo La Tengo

Wooly Bully – Sam The Sham And The Pharaohs

Woo Hoo – Five Six Seven Eights

Sunshine on My Shoulder (Superpose Remix) – John Denver
