#MM Happy Songs

There are so many songs that make me happy, that's it's hard to narrow this down to a few. Since the Pharrell Williams song will probably be on just about everyone's blog, I won't feature it. But, let me highlight these tidbits. First up is a great old song by Cool and the Gang. Yes, you know it! Celebration



Next up is one of my favorite happy songs from the first movie I ever saw in the theater. When Mary Poppins came out in the early sixties, my mom took my sibs but left me at home. She said, "I couldn't sit through a movie." Having never been to a movie, I pictured high wobbly chairs that one had to balance on, because why else couldn't I "sit" through it? A few years later this gem hit the big screens, and I enjoyed going to see The Jungle Book. Here's Swingdance.



My last happy song comes from a musical. Let's face it, many musical songs make me happy, so it was tough picking just one. My high school put on South Pacific, and the Honey Bun song has stuck with me, so here it is.

Hello Joyce, You love "Celebration", it's one of my old school favorites. And isn't "Swing Dance" to cute - but I'm a big kid anyway. Btw, I didn't choose Pharrell Williams' "Happy" for the same reason you did...I bet no one will pick it, watch. Did you get to sing "Honey Bun" in your school play? Regardless I enjoyed hearing it again. I love South Pacific. Well another week has come and gone. It's like we're all on skates. But I hope this coming week will be a good one. Happy Monday!

I like Pharell's Happy song too! If I'm feeling a bit down, I turn it on and start to feel better :) I like the Swingdance song from the Junglebook too. I haven't heard it in a while but I still remembered the chorus! I went through a musical theater stage as a teen. Gypsy was one of my favorites, the one with Bette Midler. I've never seen South Pacific, but Honeybun is definitely a cheerful song :D

Actually, I love listening to Kpop aka Korean Pop Music. It's so bouncy and cheerful! I love both the guy and girl groups. This is a link to one of the most popular Kpop groups, Girl's Generation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7mPqycQ0tQ

It's hard to be sad when this song is playing, lol. My husband doesn't like it actually XD I like the guy groups as well because the guys are soooooo cute * -* It's hard for me not to flail around like a fangirl every time I watch it, lol.

Fun. While Celebration brings back lots of memories, the Jungle Book is my favorite on the page.

Celebration by Kool & the Gang is a good one to get happy to! Oh Disney's classic animations always have a song or two that's sure to make you smile and Swingdance is a good one. Honey Bun I haven't heard before, I don't think, but I enjoyed hearing it ~ very cute! Thanks for making smile this morning! :D
