Because Today, The Sun Shines

I don't think this song can be sent out into the universe too many times.

What song makes you giddy with happiness every time you hear it?

This one put a smile on my face.

Mine: Twist and Shout, Walking on Sunshine (I'm a dork, I know.)

When I think of the others, I'll be back. I can't wait to see what everyone else says.

I don't think Boxer's a dork for picking "Walking on Sunshine".

For me, pretty much all Grieg but especially Morning Mood and In the Hall of the Mountain King. Most of Mahler, Symphony 1, of course but I also like his back-chorded "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" a lot.

As to popular music, the B-52's come to mind. "Rock Lobster" and "Love Shack" are particularly cheery.

Modern Christian: "College Kids" by Relient K. "Life of Praise" by Casting Crowns.

Good afternoon Moi,

Beethoven's fifth, seventh or ninth symphonies. I can play a mean air Baton.

Boxer: I love "Walking on Sunshine." It's infectious and never gets old.

Troll: For a second there, I thought you were talking about the lead singer for the punk band, Treble Charger. Then I realized, duh, Edvard Grieg! Ja, HOFTMK is pretty fab. As is just about everything the B-52s ever did.

Karl: When I was single, I used to crank Ode to Joy every Sunday morning when making breakfast. Not only a most excellent cure for a hangover, the 9th is, overall, THE most awesome piece of classical music ever written. Not that I'm opinionated or anything :o)

I'll vote with Boxer for the best smiley songs. And add Brown Sugar by the Rolling Stones. I'm sure I could think of some more but that would require brainpower ... so I'll go with the flow! How come you dance so good? I say yeah, yeah, yeah, woooo!

Dancing queen makes me want to puke! Sorry! (Did you know there is an Abba amusement park now? YIKES!)

Bill Withers: Lovely Day

and just about anything by the Chemical Brothers make me want to dance.

I can no longer see the video :(
