Fun Songs

The other morning I woke up with “I believe I can fly” by R. Kelly stuck in my head. I haven’t heard this song in years and I have no idea why it came to me but it made me feel good about my day. Then, as I drove to work, I saw a beautiful rainbow as the sun was rising. Instantly I had “Somewhere over the Rainbow” by Isreal Kamakawiwo’ole in my head, which is another great feel good song. It started me thinking about how there are those songs, that no matter how bad things seem to be, just seem to brighten your day a little. While at work I thought it would be fun to poll people and find out what their feel good songs were. Here’s some of the songs that people came up with.

Lord Only Know, Beck
Poker Face, Lady Gaga
September, Earth, Wind & Fire
Going the Distance, Cake
Buffalo Soldier, Bob Marley
Twist and Shout, The Beatles
Illegal Smile, John Prine
99 Red Ballons, Neno
Gettin’ Jiggy With it, Will Smith
Moves like Jager, Maroon 5
Viva La Viva, Coldplay
Snow (Hey Oh), Red Hot Chilly Peppers
Life is a Highway, Tom Cochrane
Lost in my Mind, The Head and Heart
It’s a Good Morning, Mandisa
God only Know, Beach Boys
Girls Just Want to Have Fun, Cyndi Lauper
It’s My Life, Bon Jovi
Don’t Stop Believin’, Journey
Sweet Caroline, Neil Diamond

I’m sure this list could continue on forever. Maybe I’ll put out a CD compilation something like this…
