Monday’s Music 14 [Birthday Songs Edition]

April 13, 2015

Happy Monday everyone! To celebrate the fact that it’s my birthday week (my birthday is THIS FRIDAY, woot woot,) this week’s ‘Monday’s Music‘ is dedicated to none other than birthday songs! This was without a doubt the HARDEST Monday’s Music playlist I’ve had to come up with (I guess I don’t know that many birthday songs.) In fact, it was so hard to come up with nine birthday songs that I had to break a Monday’s Music rule and include a song I’ve previously used in another playlist.
Birthday Songs Playlist
Happy Birthday – Sufjan Stevens // Birthday – Katy Perry  //  Happy Birthday – Stevie Wonder // In Da Club – 50 Cent // Birthday – The Beatles // 16 Candles – The Crests // It’s My Party – Lesley Gore // Lisa It’s Your Birthday – Michael Jackson // Say Aah – Trey Songz

Now time for a few fun facts:

Birthday [Katy Perry]. I listened to this song EVERY DAY last summer (you might remember this song appearing on Monday’s Music 04 back in May 2014.)

Happy Birthday [Stevie Wonder]. This is my absolute favorite birthday song! I can’t help but smile when I hear it!

In Da Club. Who HASN’T had this song played for them on their birthday, am I right?

Birthday [The Beatles]. I know most people [mostly Beatles fans] dislike this song but I like it! It’s silly and funny & who doesn’t love that combination. Obviously it’s not The Beatles greatest work but it’s a birthday go-to in my house!

• Lisa It’s Your Birthday. Since my mom’s name is Lisa, we (my sister & I) play this song on her birthday every year!

What’s your favorite ‘Birthday’ song?
