30-Day Song Challenge: Day 03

Day 3 of the 30-Day Song Challenge asks the question what is “a song that makes you happy”?  One of the best pop bands to come out of New York, is Ivy. Simple, straight-forward song writing and the wonderful, gorgeous cooing voice of Paris-born Dominique Durand. The song “Edge of the Ocean” from the CD Long Distance with its shimmering quitars and deep bass knows how to set the mood for exquisitive neo-dream pop. Everytime I hear this song I think of hanging out at the beach in Atlantic City or Ocean City in New Jersey. I can’t help–but be happy!
