Songs that make you happy.

I need your help. Recently, I rediscovered that song by The Outfield called “Your Love”.

Josie’s on a vacation far away Come around and talk it over So many things that I’d like to say You know I like my girls a little bit older …

When I was a kid, I loved this song. And over the past couple of days, it has brought me more joy than you can possibly imagine.

I downloaded it along with a bunch of Supertramp from Apple’s Music Store. I also downloaded “The Way” by Fastball.

I’m looking for more I may have forgotten about. (My brother, Rob, would rule at this. I wonder if he’s out there today.)

    One line, plus a lot of “La la la”s

  2. Just added Chicago into the mix and some more Supertramp. I’m not sure what’s come over me lately.

  3. Lemonheads – My Drug Buddy
    I think of this song as happy because of all the times this song has been playing while Mike and I were driving somewhere and we both spontaneously started singing it at the same time. Evan Dando is a favorite of mine.

  7. Are you talking cheese songs that we roller skated to as kids? Cause if so, you have to include some Toto.

  8. Holy crap! Toto. Must buy Howard Jones, “No one is to blame” and Toto’s Africa.

    (I just skeezed myself out listening to Chicago. *shudders)

  9. So, you’re into the 1980’s MTV thing? Then you gotta put some Eurythmics in there-like “Would I Lie To You?”-and some Mr Mister (Kyrie Eleison!). Is that enough happy cheese for you?

  10. MISTER MISTER! Oh dear. That song. (I have to sadly admit to having already downloaded that years ago from the Apple Music Store along with Take These Broken Wings.)
