Songs To Play On Your Birthday

Birthdays should be the grandest time of the year. It’s an annual event where you get to celebrate “you” and your amazing personality. However you want to spend it, it’s all up to you. Be it with a group of friends or family members – you can even make it a solo Birthday event ’cause there’s absolutely nothing wrong with treating yourself to the best “me time” if you live in a busy world and getting together with others is not possible – your day is bound to be extraordinary and full of delicious treats and music to bring you joy.

With today being my Birthday – July 18th – I’m more than happy to share a list of songs that I’m sure would make your Birthday delightful. Like Cold Stone’s Birthday Mix ice cream, what you’ll find below is a blend of lively, future-inspired, optimistic and relaxing tunes with a couple song suggestions thrown in by my friends via Instagram stories. Feel free to comment with your own Birthday playlist.

Donald Duck’s Birthday!

Disney ducks always kick butt and go on the most exciting adventures, but my ultimate favorite is the one and only Donald. So it’s only fitting that a special dedication to him is made in honor of his birthday (and years of service in the Navy).

If you’ve been following the Carl Barks comics and TV shows like the original DuckTales and House of Mouse, it’s very clear that Donald is way more than just that quacky guy with an uncontrollable temper. He comes across as genuine and is very much a team player, especially in stories where he, Mickey and Goofy are a trio. It’s also shown in the comics that he’d go out of his way to make his darling Daisy happy while being a cool uncle for the triplets at the same time. And that performance he gave in The Three Musketeers film? Astounding, heartfelt and daring! From the original voice actor Clarence Nash to the current successor Tony Anselmo who Nash personally mentored, Donald’s character continues to evolve and in a positive direction.

Here’s to more Donald in the new DuckTales that’s set to premiere this summer on Disney XD! To celebrate his birthday, the team behind DuckTales presents a brand new short with Donald, Huey, Louie, Dewey, Webby and of course, the great Uncle Scrooge!

Hey, it’s all fun in this duck family, right? Happy Birthday, Don!

Audrey!

In celebration of timeless film and style icon Audrey Hepburn’s birthday, I present you a list of my top favorite Audrey movies, from the classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s that made her character Holly Golightly as famous onscreen as she was in Truman Capote’s novella to the delightully produced Roman Holiday, where she played an adventure-craving European royalty. Do share yours as well.
