The Medium Happy Playlist

http://mediumhappy.com/?p=7187

MH turns 5 on August 16 (sharing birthdays with Madonna and Sports Illustrated, while both Babe Ruth and Elvis died on this date). We may take a staff outing, and so we are presenting this post early: every song that has appeared in “Music 101” (at least we’ve done our best to keep the list updated since we launched this feature in March of 2015).

Here’s the part where you come in: In the Comments section, suggest a song we have yet to include. We’ll take five suggestions and use them one a day next week:

7 thoughts on “The Medium Happy Playlist

  1. Giancarlo Stanton is laying waste to the idea that participating in the home run derby has an adverse affect in the second half. He’s hit 17 HRs and driven in 35 runs in the 29 games since the all-star break.

  2. What!?! No Thunderstruck by AC/DC? I’ll put a few extra coins in the MH jukebox to get that on the playlist. And with all the Breakfast Club references here, I’m a little surprised not to see St. Elmo’s Fire. Okay bye.

  3. Dire Straits : “Brothers in Arms” :

    “…There’s so many different worlds
    So many different suns
    And we have just one world
    But we live in different ones

    Now the sun’s gone to hell
    And the moon riding high
    Let me bid you farewell
    Every man has to die
    But it’s written in the starlight
    And every line in your palm
    WE’RE FOOLS TO MAKE WAR
    ON OUR BROTHERS IN ARMS”

  4. Glaring omission from your youth:

    Manfred Mann : Blinded by the Light
    after you heard it THEN you heard the Springsteen version…
