I'm feelin' good...

My el jay has been pretty boring the past few days, and I started out this week in a really foul mood. I'm feeling better now, and ready to kickstart this sucker back to life. As I've been reading my f-list, it seems that a lot of us could use some cheering up. I am a firm believer that you are influenced by what you listen to, so turn off your Sad Bastard playlist, and stop spinning that emotastic CD. I have a three-part 'Feel Good' mix series, the first of which I will happily deliver today! Right. Now.

It's kind of a hodgepodge, but comprised mostly of rock songs. I tried to get a little bit of everything in there, but either way... they're all cheerful songs that always perk me up. Arranged in play order, as always. :)

Score. Speaking of good music, you might want to coast over to eamontoplease and listen to the two new songs he just posted. Then tell him what you think, so he can continue to do bitchin' indie music.

oh psh--not in trouble. I OWN THIS PLACE, YO. I can come in whenever I want, mkay? that and i was only a couple minutes late. AND i came in to find that one manager isnt even coming in today and the other is coming in at 11. so woo for that.

and yes, i'm loving it. but... i did keep 'how bizarre' out of the mix because i hate that song with passion.

Awwww... sad. That song is so nostalgic for me. Ah well...

You should supplant it with "The Lion Sleeps Tonight." It was a wrench to take that out, but I had to in order for it to fit on a CD. *sniff*
