message 1: by janine (new)

janine | 7715 comments i was a little low on energy mentally and physically (that late afternoon thing) when in the middle of the grocery store my mp3 began playing julie london - mighty quinn. my mood was instantly cured. whenever that song comes on i put it on repeat, i can listen to it for hours.

what 5 songs instantly cure your mood, cheer you up, give you an energy boost, whenever you listen to them?
