Happy Dance CD--need help!


Recommended Posts

Tough day today...caught myself crying along with a sad song on the radio.

So I decided that I wanted to make a CD of happy, upbeat songs. I'm going to make a copy for Mom (maybe she can listen to it during chemo?) and one for me in the car for when I need it most.

So here's my question...what song would you Happy Dance to? Any genre of music, any time period. What song makes you smile, or just want to get up and dance?

For me, Jimmy Buffett's "Barefoot Children in the Rain" would be one. Any other ideas?

Katrina and the Waves "Walking on Sunshine"

The Beatles "Ob-la-di, ob-la-da" (of course, ya have to sing along at the top of your voice, too)

Most songs from ZZ Top...

Gloria Estefan's rendition of "Turn the Beat Around"

"TubThumping" by Chumbawumba (again, sung at the top of the lungs, especially the sweet little voice singing "p*ssin' the night away")


But, for sing along and smilin' big, Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World"

I see trees of green, red roses too, I see them bloom, for me and you, and I think to myself 'what a wonderful world'.

Travis Tritt "T-R-O-U-B-L-E"

Dwight Yoakum "Fast Like You"

"Touch of Gray" Grateful Dead

"Suds in the Bucket" Sara Evans

"Sin Wagon" Dixie Chicks

Michael Jackson "Wanna be Startin' Somethin'"

Okay, this is a bit diverse but one of my favorite happy songs is "Three Little Birds" by Bob Marley, it always makes me smile. Both my kids (21 years apart so the song doesn't age) and everyone else, gets hooked on it- its infectious and simple to sing along with -


Don't worry about a thing

cause every little thing is gonna be alright

don't worry about a thing

every little thing is gonna be alright

Rise up this morning

smiled with the rising sun

three little birds

pitch by my door step

singing sweet songs

of melodies pure and true

saying, this is my message to you:

don't worry about a thing...etc etc
