So, what’s yours?

I met a friend recently who, using Lavada’s brilliant new word, was suffering from the ‘gloomies’. She said there wasn’t anything she could pin it on as her life was going pretty well, but she just felt a little down and couldn’t seem to shake it off. After a long chat over a couple of coffees and a fairly large slice of cake, she said she felt decidedly better. No real surprise there, of course. A good chat with a friend can often lighten our mood, not to mention sharing an especially scrumptious, if highly calorific treat 🙂

When it came time to leave, my friend told me that she was going to clinch her new improved mood by singing her ‘happy song’ at the top of her voice while driving home. It was a song she’d learned in school, a silly little ditty that always made her feel happy. Do we all have one of those? A special song we spontaneously burst into when feeling good, or when we want to improve our mood?

I do, and here it is. Do you have one?

Let’s share our happy songs…

  3. Oooh, happy songs. I have two, and when I get them in my head, I can’t get them out. Here’s one:

  4. Forgot to put the title in that last comment. It’s “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” by the Tokens. My other one is “Fireflies” by Owl City:
    It’s just a happy little melody. 🙂 I LOVE this topic. Hope I get some more new happy songs. Yours is great Tricia.

  5. Love that son it would always put me in a peppy mood!!

  6. Loved your post, made me think. I don’t have a specific “happy” mood song, it depends often on where and what I’m doing, but one that I am known to sing – well, screech anyway as I can’t sing not even for my supper – is Lovely Day by Bill Withers. Always makes me feel good!

  7. great song choice!!! 🙂 and what a good friend you are to think of that slice of cake as a wonderful pick me up for her! I love to sing in the car- the song doesn’t matter. Here’s a fun song I like though. 😉
