Top 20 Countdown: 20 Days Left!

Last (Friday) Night a D.J. Saved My Life: a non-baby related post

The past few days (as well as the next few ahead) have been hectic; housecleaning, preparing for the trip and the baby, saying goodbye...  Friday was my last day of work, and I think I'm too emotionally drained and excited to feel much about it.  I made some good friends there, and I'll miss spending 40 hours a week with these people.  Seriously, it feels like I just graduated from high school - except instead of a diploma, I'm getting a baby.

On my way to work in the morning, the Rolling Stones' "The Last Time" played on the radio and on the way home from a surprise goodbye dinner my boss and co-workers threw me, Lindsey Ray's "Brand New Day" came on.  My car radio's shuffle is  pretty terrible (always repeating the same songs, despite having 3,000 of them loaded in there), but yesterday it was dead-on; very fitting.  It lifted my spirits as I made my way home.

So today, I leave you with a list of 20 songs (in no particular order, with no particular deep meaning) that just make me feel good.  They're mostly uplifting songs, which in my database is kind of a rarity.

Sit back (or sing & dance along) and enjoy:

Home - Phillip Phillips
Wonderful (The Way I Feel) - My Morning Jacket
Firework - Kay Perry
We Are Young [Featuring Janelle MonĂ¡e] - fun.
Hey Jude - The Beatles
The Edge Of Glory - Lady GaGa
Flashdance...What A Felling - Irene Cara
Rock Lobster - B-52's
F**k You [Explicit Version] - Lily Allen
You'll Never Walk Alone ["Carousel"] - Michael Ball
A Fifth Of Beethoven - Walter Murphy
Wonderwall - Oasis
No Matter What - Boyzone
Make Your Own Kind Of Music - Cass Elliot
Like A Prayer - Madonna
Invincible - Pat Benetar
Across The Universe [Naked Version]- The Beatles
Chiquitita - ABBA
My Favorite Things ["The Sound of Music"] - Julie Andrews
Feel Good Inc. [Featuring De La Soul] - Gorillaz
