Wow! Some great songs you all posted! Drummagick- Yes ("Roundabout")... I saw them live (with Rick Wakeman) in 1974, then 30 years later in 2004. Amazing! "And You And I" is one of my favorite Yes songs. Lucky1 - The Small Faces ("Itchycoo Park") with Steve Marriott, one of the finest voices in rock, especially when he was in Humble Pie. Have you seen the video (with Humble Pie...including Peter Frampton) doing an acoustic version of "For Your Love"? It is absolutely spine-tingling.

I saw them live in the mid-70s too. A great show!

And I LOVE Humble Pie!

This some came out right after I dumped a pain is the rear long time girl friend.

Good riddance!

It also invokes some string deja vu. Every time it come on I close the door to my office, lay back and enjoy the memories of that time.

One thing I have learned, I don't listen to that many happy songs. I looked through my many YouTube videos that I have bookmarked, and most of them are songs with sad and depressing lyrics. I did find this one, Time of the Season by the Zombies. Dave Matthews Band does a nice cover of this song.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCjFTsvL7mk

It's the time of the season for loving

Love songs make me happy. Love in all its aspects and guises.

Lately liked "Our Town, "on the ending of "Northern Exposure," the last episode. I enjoyed seeing all the townspeople going on with their lives. Only watched a few episodes, but this one was touching.

Here it is. Charming.

When the World Ends - Dave Matthews Band

The title of the song is deceiving; this is really a happy song.

Can I gloat just a little bit if I promise not to get carried away.

Yes, we can.

These are nice song lyrics:

We have been told
we cannot do this
by a Chorus of cynics
who will only grow louder
and more dissonant.
We’ve been asked
to pause for a reality check.
We’ve been warned against offering
the people of this nation false hope.
But in the unlikely story that is America
there has never been anything false about hope.
We want change!

Couldn't find a YouTube of it, but one of our local radio stations plays this occasionally.

I like country and one song that always makes me smlie is Honkytonk Badonkadonk. I know it's sexist but it's a fun song.

Turn it up some
Alright boys, this is her favorite song
You know that right
So, if we play it good and loud
She might get up and dance again
Ooh, she put her beer down
Here she comes
Here she comes
Left left left right left
Whoo

Husslers shootin' eight ball
Throwin' darts at the wall
Feelin' damn near 10 ft. tall
Here she comes, Lord help us all
Ol' T.W.'s girlfriend done slapped him outta his chair
Poor ole boy, it ain't his fault
It's so hard not to stare
At that honky tonk badonkadonk
Keepin' perfect rhythm
Make ya wanna swing along
Got it goin' on
Like Donkey Kong
And whoo-wee
Shut my mouth, slap your grandma
There outta be a law
Get the Sheriff on the phone
Lord have mercy, how'd she even get them britches on
That honky tonk badonkadonk
(Aww son)

Now Honey, you can't blame her
For what her mama gave her
It ain't right to hate her
For workin' that money-maker
Band shuts down at two
But we're hangin' out till three
We hate to see her go
But love to watch her leave
With that honky tonk badonkadonk
Keepin' perfect rhythm
Make ya wanna swing along
Got it goin' on
Like Donkey Kong
And whoo-wee
Shut my mouth, slap your grandma
There outta be a law
Get the Sheriff on the phone
Lord have mercy, how'd she even get them britches on
With that honky tonk badonkadonk
(Ooh, that's what I'm talkin' bout right there, honey)

We don't care about the drinkin'
Barely listen to the band
Our hands, they start a shakin'
When she gets the urge to dance
Drivin' everybody crazy
You think you fell in love
Boys, you better keep your distance
You can look but you can't touch
That honkey tonk badonkadonk
Keepin' perfect rhythm
Make ya wanna swing along
Got it goin' on
Like Donkey Kong
And whoo-wee
Shut my mouth, slap your grandma
There outta be a law
Get the Sheriff on the phone
Lord have mercy, how'd she even get them britches on
That honky tonk badonkadonk

That honky tonk badonkadonk
Yeah, that honky tonk badonkadonk

(That's it, right there boys, that's why we do what we do
It ain't for the money, it ain't for the glory, it ain't for the free whiskey
It's for the badonkadonk)
