It’s yet again that magical day: every event planner’s and event professional’s favorite day of theweek – THURSDAY! The day MeetingPlay – the most engaging mobile event app – shares our weekly playlist.

We're excited about the sunshine and warm days that have been present where we call home (Frederick, Maryland), thus we bring you 'Sunny Days Are On The Rise' - 11 songs to help event professionals and event planners 'Soak Up the Sun' (so to speak).

1. Katrina & The Waves - Walking On Sunshine

How could we not include this upbeat, sunshine filled song? There's no denying this is the ultimate way to pump up any day - even if you're planning events in Colorado where they are experiencing anything but spring like weather!

Sing along:

Now everytime I go for the mailbox, gotta hold myself down
Cause I just can´t wait till you write me you´re coming around

(Kind of like receiving notice of every pre-registering event attendee!)

2. Darius Rucker - Alright

This once upon a time 'Hootie & the Blowfish' front man from good ol' Columbia, South Carolina took a risk and ventured out from the pop/alternative rock world and started a solo country career. If there's anything we can learn from Daris Rucker, as event professionals, it's not to be afraid to do believe in what makes most sense and work your butt off to make it happen. This song is no exception.

Sing along:

May be a simple life but that's okay, yeah
If you ask me baby I think I got it made

3. U2 - Beautiful Day

No matter the stress, no matter how hard you have to work yourself today or any day when planning an event - it's still a beautiful day! Own it! You're going to rock your event, and you're going to succeed, as will your event! So enjoy the day - it's beautiful.

Sing along:

It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
It's a beautiful day

4. Foo Fighters - Walk

It's not like anyone who has worked in the events industry needs to learn to walk again - but sometimes we need to be reminded that despite setbacks - we're here for the longhaul - and walking again is synonmous with never giving up. Never give up event professionals! You've got this! Walk!

Sing along: 

Learning to walk again
I believe I've waited long enough
Where do I begin?
Learning to talk again
Can't you see I've waited long enough?
Where do I begin?

5.The Beatles - Here Comes the Sun

So you're continuing to walk - what lies ahead? The sun(also known as an amazing, successful event), of course! And what better way to be reminded of that then this Beatles song!

Sing along:

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it's all right

 6. Johnny Nash - I Can See Clearly

You've gotten through the rocks, pebbles, stones and even mountain like hurdles that arise when planning an event. The horizon is in sight - and you can see clearly. It IS going to be a bright, bright sunshiny *event. 

Sing along:

Oh, yes I can make it now the pain is gone.
All of the bad feelings have disappeared.
Here is that rainbow I've been praying for.
It's gonna be a bright (bright) sunshiny day

7. The Animals - House of the Rising Sun

How could we not include this oldie but goodie hit? The Animals spoke truth and the truth rings on... The only difference? Event professionals don't step foot on the train, they know they are going to rock their events and never give up!

Sing along:

Well, I got one foot on the platform
The other foot on the train

8. Noah and the Whale - 5 Years Time

Some times we just needed to be reminded there is going to be sun - no matter what.  The sun will come! The hard work, the long hours, the dedication - it will all be worthwhile in the end - and that's what this song is all about: the sun!

Sing along:

And there'll be sun sun sun all over our bodies
And sun sun sun all down our necks
And sun sun sun all over our faces
And sun sun sun -so what the heck!

9. The 5th Dimension - Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In

Another one of those songs we simply couldn't help but include in this sunshiney, inspiring playlist. No matter what, just let the sunshine in!

Sing along:

Let the sun shine in
Open up your heart and let it shine on in
When you are lonely, let it shine on
Got to open up your heart and let it shine on in
And when you feel like you've been mistreated
And your friends turn away
Just open your heart, and shine it on in

10. Blind Melon - No Rain

MeetingPlay is here to tell you - we'll always be here when your event is awake! We won't leave you! We've got talented and dedicated travel directors and account managers here to make sure your events are always a success when you use our mobile event app!

Sing along:

And I'll have it made, and I'll have it made, oh no, no
You know we're really gonna, really gonna have it made, yeah
We're gonna have it made

11. The Temper Trap - Sweet Disposition

There's no more appropriate or perfect way to end a playlist that is built around songs to remind event professionals and event planners that success is reachable, that spring and sunshine is ahead, should they just refuse to give up, no matter what! Refuse to stop til the event is over! Refuse to surrender! You've got this, the success of events is YOURS! (And MeetingPlay's event app is here for any conference, meeting, event, or seminar that wants to engage and delight their next event!)

Sing along:

Won't stop 'til it's over
Won't stop 'til it's over
Won't stop 'til it's over
Won't stop to surrender
