1. "Golden Days" by Whitney:

As the bleak January weather has us all feeling down in the dumps, "Golden Days" reminds us that summer is right around the corner. This song reminds me of a happy and sunny summer day...hang in there folks there is hope!

2. "Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark)" by Unknown Mortal Orchestra:

Off of their 2013 album "II", Unknown Mortal Orchestra brings us this hit single. Their sounds present to us a genre classified as stoner rock. Definitely unique and worth the listen.

3. "Emergency Blimp" by King Krule:

Off of his newest album, "The OOZ", King Krule brings us "Emergency Blimp." This song is about insomnia and struggling to sleep.

4. "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" by The Smiths:

Off of The Smiths' album "The Queen is Dead" released in 1986, we are given this gem. This song is definitely a classic!

5. "Dark Red" by Steve Lacy:

This song describes someone wondering if their lover is going to leave them. The song title "Dark Red" refers to the lipstick color that girls wear when they're trying to move on. This groovy song will be sure to get you dancing.
