Music for Smiling

I’m pretty sure it’s illegal to be unhappy in Wisconsin during the summer. We only get the sunshine for a few months and they seem to move double time. Today I took a moment to myself to realize that we’re almost halfway through July and wonder what the hell happened to June. What was I even doing in June? Did it really happen? Did I go outside?

I really don’t remember.

Anyway, when I’m outside enjoying this lovely, humid July, the sun pouring down on my Irish shoulders to incinerate them, little black bugs crawling on my legs and me trying to act chill about it, I love a good upbeat jam. There are a few songs that no matter how many times I hear them or no matter how doom and gloom I feel, they always make me smile a give a little shoulder shimmy. Just one though.

These are those songs.
