Artificial Sunshine...

Confession: I'm far more obsessed with music than I should be. It is physically impossible for me to be in a room for more than 20 seconds without it, I start to twitch like I have Tourettes. You think I'm kidding? Oh, don't you little worry. I'm not. The creation of the iPod was a gift from on high. It means I have a pocket full of music with me at all times. What could be better then that?

So, today, I was driving down 9th east, windows down, music blaring on my way to meet some friends for dinner. Today was one of those totally golden days in Salt Lake where the weather was my kind of perfect. Not too hot, not too cold (Remember? I'm the Goldilocks of seasons), the sun was shinning, and the air smelled like a splendid mix of sunshine, grass and flowers. It was pure delight. To add to my complete bliss, one of my favorite songs began to play on Chuck (for the uninformed, that's my iPod). I came to the decision that there are some songs that are like artificial sunshine. And lucky for ya'll, I've compiled them into a list. You can thank me later.

my little 1Gig classic ipod died. I stopped running. I got fat.
I just got an ipod touch, and am in heaven. As I write, I am compiling a playlist guaranteed to get these little feet of mine pounding the pavement again.
And your sunshine mix is perfect! I may be in love. Just sayin.

I love it when you post playlists because just reading the titles makes me happier. I'm gonna go fill in the holes with the songs I don't already own.

Yeah, I'm afraid the only song that right now makes me ridiculously happy is You and I, Ingrid Michaelson. I love when you post little playlists, forreal. You're the best. Ever.

okay, 'I Hate Everyone' by Get Set Go. It's because the content and tune are the best set of contradictions that I can't help but smile. I've been told I'm a bit warped though.

but I also greatly enjoy the vast majority of your playlist! excellent choices.

You and I should be friends. Oh wait, we already are. :) Seriously though, the ones that I knew of made me smile. The others made me want to get busy searching. :) Thanks!!
