Do you have a happy song? A song you can turn on and it just makes you happy, want to dance or makes you happy is some other way. Bob Marley's Don't Worry Be Happy!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxQcSxq0TvE is one that many people think of on being happy. I'm trying to make a list of other HAPPY songs. What is your Happy song???? Husbands happy song. Jimmy Buffett http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oq69l32DCKs

Here comes the sun by the Beatles and I like Oldie goldie music. I like to listen to Buddy holly, Roy orbison, all those old rockers. I also like Tom Petty but classic rock and roll can get me singing and dancing around this house while I am cleaning.

My daugter, minnie, can verify my fave happy song. Now first a short tale, I am a very heavy sleeper and it takes a lot to wake me up usually. So this is why this sopng is my "happy song". It is from the soundtrack of Dlck Tracy the movie. It stars Madonna. She sings a song called "Hanky Panky" in it. This is a song that my kids or wife would play and I'd almost jump out of bed. I love it. There's my happy song and tale as to why. I found a videop from opne of her tours with this song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bicbatU-7I HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

So you're saying that you only wake up for a little Hanky Panky?

Did you listen and watch the video? It has nothing to do with hanky panky, more just spanking. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I had to pick more than one because I couldn't find the song that was going through my head at the time. As I listened to each one, I thought "nope that's not it. But it rocks!" I still have no idea which song was going around my head. Worse, now I can't remember the words that were stuck in a loop in my mind.

Almost any song that has a triple rhythm gets me up and moving. Cecilia by Paul Simon is one of them. I also like Don't Worry Be Happy, it always makes me smile. And Short People always makes me laugh. However, neither of those make me want to get up and jump around like an idiot.*L* I love, Zydeco music, too. It is really hard to sit still or not be in a good mood when listening to Zydeco!

I'm terrible with song titles or artist names. But I know of a song that goes "I can see clearly now, the rain is gone." I remember when I was going thru my horrible divorce I'd hear that on the radio and just smile. My ex was the rain in my metaphor. LOL I remember that song of yours with a smile. You see many years ago the place I worked would have a Christmas party and the staff would provide the entertaiment. Several of my co-workers and I got together and did silly "pillow case" costumes over our heads and did a dance routine to that song. We even had one of them painted to look like the artist was whistling it. The hardest part was it was so hot in those pillow cases and we couldn't see a darn thing. But we could tell by all the laughter that the crowd loved it.

There are a lot of songs that make me happy. I especially love the "dance club" songs I used to dance too when I was in my 20's and going to the nightclubs to dance with my friends. Whenever I hear those songs on the radio I can't help but dance around. I also like the song "Oh What a Night", I'm not sure who sings it but it always makes me feel happy when I hear it.
