Spring is here!

Well, once again, I’ve fallen off the “I’m going to blog everyday” wagon!  And, no, I haven’t been crafting every day either.  Lately, an early Spring has sprung here in New England, and I’ve used every one of my few free moments to be outside enjoying it.  Yesterday, I spent 2 hours on the back deck with a good book, it was luxurious!  Finished the book, too!  Conquistadora by Esmeralda Santiago.  Not my favorite book, but about a subject I knew very little about, which is always a good reason to read a book.  It dragged at times, but overall was a good read.

So, to get me back into the swing of things, I’m going to go with Carole Knits 10 on Tuesday suggestion today.  And today’s topic:  10 Songs That Put You In A Great Mood.  Since I LOVE music, this one should be easy!  In no particular order, here they are:

1.  Show Me How You Burlesque by Christina Aquilera – We danced to this song this morning in Zumba, so it’s fresh on my mind.  A great way to start my day!

2.  Daydream Believer by the Monkees – With the passing of Davy Jones last week, this one has been in my head a lot lately.  I’ve loved it ever since I was a kid watching the Monkees on TV.

3.  Candyman by Christina Aquilera – What can I say, I’m a Christina fan!  This one has a great beat and a Big Band sound you don’t often get in a Top 40 song.

4.  Summertime’s Calling Me by The Catalinas – Most beach music will put me in a good mood, but this one in particular is an oldie but goodie!  This one and

5.  Stagger Lee by Lloyd Price – I was first introduced to Stagger Lee in the movie Shag.  Everytime I hear it, I think back to my college girlfriends, roadtrips, Myrtle Beach.  I’m smiling right now just thinking about it!

6.  Little Talks by Of Monsters and Men – A new band out of Iceland, I can’t wait to hear more from them!

7.  The Cave by Mumford and Sons –  This whole album (Sigh No More) is terrific!  It’s what I play when I need to get stuff done.  A rockin’ beat, it keeps me moving!  But not dancing, this isn’t in my dance party playlist.

8.  Fire Burning by Sean Kingston – When I need to get my groove on!

9.  Cocnut by Harry Nilsson – For a more mellow great mood.

10.  You Can Call Me Al by Paul Simon –  No music list of mine would be complete without an appearance by Rhymin’ Simon.  This song comes on the radio, it’s roll the windows down, turn it up time for me.  Happy-go-lucky is how I think of this song, and of course, the image of Chevy Chase playing a saxophone has to make you smile!  You Can Call Me Al
