(Sorry, we couldn't help the title).

As we really start feeling the closing in of the daylight hours (yikes!), our Silver Linings Playlist is here to help, and also to make you feel a little bit like how we imagine J. Law feels 99% of the time.

This month's mixtape is a compilation of trusty aural pick-me-ups: the songs, the jams, and the happy grooves that reliably get you out of a Sunday/hangover/cereal-for-dinner kid of funk, and get you getting funky.

A note on the cover image: it has nothing to do with anything, other than the fact that gorgeous Romy Schneider holding a baby tiger inexplicably makes me (Lydia) think that every little thing is gonna be all right
