Ten On Tuesday

We don’t often have musical themed posts for Ten on Tuesday and I’m not sure why since I love music. Anyway, this week’s theme comes from Kristi and we’re writing about 10 Songs That Put You In A Great Mood.

  1. Walking on Sunshine, Katrina and the Waves. I can’t help but smile and sing along.
  2. One Particular Harbour, Jimmy Buffett. This one gets turned up really really loud every time I listen to it.
  3. Yellow Submarine, The Beatles. The idea of living in a yellow submarine with all my friends sounds great to me.
  4. If I Had $1,000,000, Bearnaked Ladies. Singing along with them makes me happy.
  5. A Beautiful Day, India Arie. This one really puts things in perspective – it’s always a beautiful day, isn’t it?
  6. Don’t Stop Believin’, Journey. Hold onto that feeling . . .
  7. D ‘yer Maker, Led Zeppelin. This one works for me and it turns out it’s a scientific fact, too.
  8. Little Bitty Pretty One, Thurston Harris. It must be all that humming. And also that it makes me think of the movie Matilda and how much Hannah loved watching that when she was 5 years old.
  9. I’m a Bitch, Alanis Morissette. Somehow admitting that I’m a bitch makes me feel less like one. Or something.
  10. Go Your Own Way, Fleetwood Mac.
I’m ready to listen to some music now!

  4. Thunder Road/Springsteen and Brown Eyed Girl/Van Morrison. Yep. That’s all I need. Have a great day, Carole!

  5. So many wonderful songs to choose from. Now that my new car has satellite radio, I’m tuning in to those old favorites from the 60’s. Walking in Sunshine is right up there along with Journey!

  9. Gosh there’s so many songs! September has to be one of my favorites. Brings me right back to the 80s (or was it the 70s)?

  10. Awesome Carole! From your list and several others I’ve been reminded of a lot of songs I really like but maybe didn’t know who the artist was so don’t own them. I think my iTunes wishlist is going to grow by leaps and bounds this week as I sample everyone’s tunes šŸ™‚ Thanks!

  11. Fun topic…very good one for today for me!

    I like Walking on Sunshine too, but may not be happening at my house today…

  12. ANYTHING/EVERYTHING by Queen, Styx and Supertramp!
    “It’s raining again….”
    “and another one bites the dust!…”
    Etc!
    And yep, Journey’s right up there too.
    Time to go do some downloads!

  13. You had some that I love, too — Walkin’ on Sunshine, If I Had a Million Dollars, Journey, Fleetwood Mac. What a great 10 on Tuesday!

  14. Great post! I have been listening to Waiting on a Sunny Day by Bruce Springsteen alot and having fond memories of how he pole dances with his microphone stand when he does that song. sigh.
    Go Your Own Way – I love Fleetwood Mac.
    I also listen to Love Train by the O’Jays. Wonderwall – Oasis. I played for my husband on Valentine’s Day.

  15. Speaking of generation gap…I feel so bad for everyone who missed the beginnings of Motown. Because how it makes you feel has a lot to do with where you were then. I like ‘In the Mood’ (before my time) but it isn’t visceral like ‘This Old Heart of Mine’ in the original Isley Brothers (high school). The Jackson Five songs–I just have to hear the intro to ‘I Want You Back- or ‘Stop, the Love you Save….’

    That said, I *have* been to Barenaked Ladies concerts and seen the Kraft-Dinner-throwing phenomenon.

  16. Once again I am woefully behind on my blog reading. Love this list though. It was so hard to choose only 10 songs. There are a few on your list I could’ve added like Fleetwood Mac.
