Spring is officially here and it’s time to start getting ready for that warm weather. While there are a lot of great upbeat songs out right now (“Happy” by Pharrell Williams, Avicii and Tegan and Sara are personal favorites right now), I have a few other suggestions of songs you should add to your mix!
Scissor Sisters – Only The Horses
I have no idea where I was the first time I heard this song, but it’s guaranteed to get me singing. Onlyyyy the horsessssss!
And if this is the end
It’s the best place I’ve ever been
It feels so good to just
Get lost sometimes
Dragonette – Let It Go
Dragonette was founded in 2005 by Martina Sorbara and her husband, bassist Dan Kurtz. These Canadian performers create such a dynamic electro-pop sound that it’s hard not to listen to their songs over and over. They also have an awesome Laidback Luke remix version of the song.
We don’t need a cure for the weight of the world
Cause it’s floating round in the universe
Just swing it like it’s tied by a string that you hold
And let it go
Icona Pop – We Got The World
We all know about Icona Pop, especially after they collaborated with Charli XCX for “I Love It”. This song is definitely going to be a staple party anthem song.
Just come into my arms
I will get you love drunk
We’ll be burning bright
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis- And We Danced (ft. Ziggy Stardust)
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ “The Unplanned Mixtape,” was released in 2009. “And We Danced” is one of the best songs that they’ve done so far. There’s no doubt in my mind why this duo swept the Grammy’s this year.
I will not, I will not give a damn who watches me
I will live, I will live liberate the fox in me
I will be the disco ball, freak and give my all
Dragonette – Live In This City
I’m wrapping up this list with my favorite song by Dragonette, “Live In This City.” Always a must on my road mixes!
I gotta keep on doing what I’m doing
‘Cause we’re clapping our hands now
Yeah I found a lipstick that I like
And so I’m walking it downtown
