My Happy List

If you are a child of the 60’s

If you know what  I mean when I say….”I give it an 84 because it has a good beat and it’s easy to dance to..”

And….. if music helps you cope

then this blog is for you.

Recently, a good blogger friend posted about anger and how one copes with anger.  http://barefootbaroness.org/2012/09/20/unspent-anger/

My Lady Baroness sings the anger away…. it’s her way of getting through it.  (read her blogs …she is pretty amazing)

Music, for me, helps me cope with Life in general.   When I am alone, it becomes a good friend, when I am down or sad  it perks me up.   When I want to get pumped up about a project, music helps me make it happen.

I actually DO have a playlist called  My  Happy List. ( I also have  a playlist titled Songs To Make Me Cry. but that’s food for another post)

Right here, I want to share My Happy List with you.  (drum roll)

Here Comes My Baby     The Tremeloes
Fun, Fun, Fun            The Beach Boys

    Mhm, mhm, tap, tap. I know and love many of those songs. I suspect that you associate them with happy times because you were young and carefree then (I suspect it because that’s how I feel). It’s like a little time machine. Put a record on the turntable and close your eyes and you’re there.

  3. Love, love, love your list! Of course, I know *all* of your happy songs. 🙂 My mp3 player currently has upbeat music on it – mostly today’s top 40, but I’ve included a couple of country songs, and Kenny Chesney’s No Shoes, No Shirt, No Probems always makes me happy. It makes me feel I’m at the beach rather than in rural Ohio.
