The Happy Playlist

Visiting a loved one’s grave. Being in a long-distance relationship. Reading the latest “Green Lantern” reviews. All of these things might make you sad. Like most normal people, you might turn to something to cheer you up: chocolate, a good book, or—my personal favorite—music.

So, for all of you out there mourning over the fact that your boyfriend chose to be an intern in San Diego or that Ryan Reynolds doesn’t actually read the scripts of the movies he signs on for, I have the perfect solution: the happy playlist! If these 15 songs don’t cheer you up in a jiff, then only God knows what will. If you’re already feeling happy, feel free to be happier.
