Music: Top Five Songs for a Sunny Day

I'm back to business with writing on the blog after our long ski trip weekend. And in case you were wondering, I made it through the weekend without any broken bones. I may have fallen once (which I entirely blame on an old lady that was pizza wedging down the mountain so slowly, that I did a tuck and roll just to avoid crashing into her), but not hard enough to cause any damage. Yes, there was snow, but quite a bit of slush and dirt too. Needless to say, it was a gorgeous, sunny weekend and great to spend time outside.

With all the beautiful weather we've been having of late, both on our trip and in Baltimore, I dedicate this week's music link up party to the top five songs for a sunny day. Feel free to play along and check out the details on how to link up at the end of the post! Here are my picks.

One of my more recent favorites...

One that is almost obligatory...

You can't go wrong with The Ramones...

Without a doubt...

And one song that could never be excluded. Done by a great, none the less...

What are your favorite songs for a sunny day? Grab a button from below and link up with the URL for your post. And don't forget to join next week as well. Next week's theme is favorite musicians that play in multiple successful bands. A few examples to throw out there would be Dave Navarro (Jane's Addiction and Red Hot Chili Peppers), Dave Grohl (Nirvana and Foo Fighters), or Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, Audioslave, plus solo). However, my favorite is none of the above so you'll have to check back next week! ;) Hope you can join too!
