Ecclesiastes states that "there is a time" for everything, including worry. But this blog is about being happy in the face of worry. So put on some new shoes, drink a margarita, and choose your favorite of the following "Happy Songs." Nominations welcome and I'll try to add them! For a list of ideas, see Spin's list of the top ten "happy songs."
Here are three with the #1 pick recommended by Professor Jonathan Wiesen (and also one of my favorite happy songs). Good timing, Jonathan, now that R.E.M. just broke up! But, hey, we'll save "breaking up" songs for another day . . .
Enjoy and recommend!
#3: "New Shoes" (Paolo Nutini)
#2: "Don't Worry Be Happy" (Bobby McFerrin)
#1: "Shiny Happy People" (R.E.M.) -- redirects to the Youtube video in high quality.
