Through the Clouds: The Mixtape

I’m participating in The Social Playlist Challenge this month.

Every week, I will be given a theme and it’s my job to create a 15 song playlist around that theme. I wanted to take it a step further and make a mix each time.

I was only told of this week’s theme this morning so it was tough but I managed to pull it together.

“To show our respect for those who were effected by Hurricane Sandy, the first theme will be ‘Uplift Me.’ The playlist must consist of 15 songs that will uplift spirits, promote happiness or turn a tragic frown upside down”

Here’s the mix I made for first week of the contest. I hope you enjoy it!
