As I’m in the process of putting together the final mix of my favorite songs of the 2nd quarter of 2015, something I suspected is definitely getting confirmed: while I’ve been having a wonderful spring and an even more fun summer, most of the new music I’ve discovered lately is a bit more on the somber and serious side. Well, that’s just not the soundtrack that matches this summer!

So I’m looking for some new happy songs… I’m sure I could find quite a few songs by looking for “song of the summer” kind of blog posts. But I figured, I’d rather ask my friends… so…

Which 2015 song makes you dance, laugh and want to turn it up loud as your train leaves the station, your plane takes off or your car finally hits the open road?

Please leave your suggestion (preferably with the link to the sound or video file on YouTube, Soundcloud, Vimeo, Spotify etc.) below. Then I’ll put together a happy summer mix tape together for all of us to enjoy.

As a bit of an inspiration, my favorite happy song so far is “Back of the Car” by RAC (feat. Nate Hendricks).

Um… yeah… about this photo: all I remember is that towards the end of Scott’s company’s party, some of his co-workers pointed to this plate and encouraged me to take a photo because one of them claimed I knew how to take good pictures. The memory is a bit fuzzy because it was a really good summer party…
