Shiny Happy Music

Happiness isn’t all about buying new handbags, y’know. Listening to uplifting music can make your day. Music is a really personal thing, and the same music won’t touch us all in the same way. Having said that, I wanna share some of my happy music with yez, and I hope you’ll tell me some of your favourite tunes. First up is Van……’the man’. Aptly nicknamed ‘cos only a super-talented dude like Van Morrison is capable of writing some of the happiest tunes on the planet, as well as some of the most miserable. Just ask Lester Bangs, who I have to thank for introducing me to Astral Weeks.

 

  Och, to heck with it. Let’s have another happy tune from Van. I still remember a sunny morning of perfection boppin’ along the road listening to this one. This one pulls me out of even the worst funks. I offer it now to you as an antidote to your worst crappy day. May it prove effective.

From the dark end of the street
To the bright side of the road
We’ll be lovers once again
on the Bright side of the road

Little darlin’, come with me
Won’t you help me share my load
From the dark end of the street
To the bright side of the road

Into this life we’re born
Baby sometimes we don’t know why
And time seems to go by so fast
In the twinkling of an eye

Let’s enjoy it while we can
Won’t you help me sing my song
From the dark end of the street
To the bright side of the road

From the dark end of the street
To the bright side of the road
We’ll be lovers once again
On the bright side of the road
We’ll be lovers once again  
on the bright side of the road  

More happy tunes over here.
