Kelsey's Songs That Bring Us Together

A note about these songs:
"Jump Around" by House of Pain requires a bit of an explanation because I’m showing my real Wisconsinite colors. It’s true: I’m a Badger! I didn’t frequent football games, but “Jump Around” was still ubiquitous during my undergrad at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I have a lot of great memories centered around this song that continue to follow me around as an adult and fill me with pride to be a part of that collegiate community. Trust me, if you break out this song while DJing a wedding in Wisconsin, you’ll fill the dance floor no problem - you might even end up summoning Bucky himself!
