I couldn’t wait a full month! Daft Punk released their highly anticipated new single, Get Lucky, on the night my last article came out. This is the song of the summer. You are going to want to put it on repeat. Depriving you of this song for a month felt wrong, dishonest, and unfair. So here are 7 more upbeat songs for you, because it’s sunny in Seattle and tulip season and that’s making me happy.
Oh, and if you need more ways to “get lucky”, Virgin has some ideas.
The 7 songs below have been added to both: QL: Spring Songs and Qlette’s Discover This on Spotify. The full list is embedded below.
