The 30 Day Song Challenge: Day 3

Today’s category is..

A Song That Makes You Happy.

Here are the staff picks:

Tara Seetharam: “Born to Fly” – Sara Evans

Maybe it’s because it reminds me of my adolescence, or maybe it’s because it represents to me the last batch of great 90s-esque country music – but this song makes my heart smile.

Kevin Coyne: “Up!” – Shania Twain

Perhaps too obvious a choice, but its the best representation of Twain’s patented positivity.  The book and reality show are great, but I really hope she gets back in the studio soon!

Leeann Ward: “Say Hey (I Love You)” – Michael Franti & Spearhead

This song simply makes me too happy to put it in the Guilty Pleasure category. It’s lightweight and corny, but it’s infectious and vibrant too.

Dan Milliken: “The Magic Position” – Patrick Wolf

It’s like if you could listen to a rainbow – one with a pot of gold. Big, romantic, and catchy, with hand claps and foot stomps and only a teeny smidgen of indie irony. (Not as dirty as the title might suggest, either.) Well worth YouTubing if you haven’t heard it.
