Songs That Make U Happy

Sat Jul 09, 2005 7:30 am

I was listening to a 80's radio station on the internt and a song came on i have not heard since i was 8 that made me smile, start singin, and dancing in my chair.

I remember it from my first trip to OZ. Xmas late 80's

Just come in from a morning swim with my cousens in the pool in the garden, coming into the house, with a vid cam on us all and this just startin on the radio. We all started running round the room and singin it at the top of our lungs. Xmas fun all around.

It just came all back to me   and i know when im down, i can play this and it will make me smile. My aunty is over from oz nxt week, and she was there as well. Wil take it and see if she remembers as well

Edit to say song is Beach Boys - Kokomo, not a fan of em, but this song is amazing

"Polly" by Nirvana

Polly wants a cracker
I think I should get off her first
Maybe she wants some water
To put out the blow torch

Isn’t me
Have a seed
Let me clip
Your dirty wings
Let me take a ride
Hurt yourself
Want some help
Please myself
Got some rope
Have been told
Promise you
Have been true
Let me take a ride
Hurt yourself
Want some help
Please myself

Polly wants a cracker
Maybe she would like more food
She asked me to untie her
A chase would be nice for a few

Isn’t me
Have a seed
Let me clip
Your dirty wings
Let me take a ride
Hurt yourself
Want some help
Please myself
Got some rope
Have been told
Promise you
Have been true
Let me take a ride
Hurt yourself
Want some help
Please myself

Polly said

Polly says her back hurts
She’s just as bored as me
She caught me off my guard
’mazes me the will, of instinct

Isn’t me
Have a seed
Let me clip
Your dirty wings
Let me take a ride
Hurt yourself
Want some help
Please myself
Got some rope
Have been told
Promise you
Have been true
Let me take a ride
Hurt yourself
Want some help
Please myself

Summertime - Fresh Prince
Fun Day - Stevie Wonder
And The Beat Goes On - The Whispers
Ngiculela - Stevie Wonder
Mr Blue Sky - ELO
Love Train - The O'Jays

Cool - Gwen Stefani
Its her latest single and really has a good sound to it. Reminds me of some of the 80's greatest music.

All Star - Smash Mouth
This is one of those songs that when it comes on the radio, I just can't change the station...

Sailing - Christopher Cross
Reminds me of flying. To be honest, most things remind me of flying. Big grin

I Can Only Imagine - Mercy Me
I can only imagine, what my eyes will see, when your face is before me... The Christians will know what I'm talking about.

Good Riddance - Green Day
Reminds me of the good old days of high school. Things were so much simpler back then.

That just what I could come up with off the top of my head.
I lift things up and put them down.

Isn't the song about suicide? "It's something unpredictable but in the end it's right. I hope you had the time of your life"!!! Great lyrics, nothing would make me happier!
Just kidding...

My songs are mostly French songs...
Un Type Bien by Manau
Le Temps des Cathedrals by Garou (part of the show "Notre Dame de Paris")
Symphony no. 9 from the New World by Antonin Dvorak

Love him or hate him, in my opinion, the greatest song ever written is

Billie Jean - Michael Jackson

That bass line....Does it every time.

Along with Beat It, Thriller, and Black or White.

Away from Michael Jackson, how about She Drives Me Crazy by the fine Young Cannibals? Thats a good song, also I like Black Betty.
I came, I saw, I Concorde! RIP Michael Jackson

There is only one song that will cheer me up, even if just a little, no matter the situation:

What a Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong

There are other songs that are OK for this:

What I Got - Sublime
Buddy Holly - Weezer
and most anything by Oliver Mtukudzi (I know most of his songs aren't happy if you translate them, but I like the dichotomy of a happy sounding song, with instructive lyrics, it says that even though some things may suck, there is hope, just work toward the future.)
