Mr. Peter Parkour has so graciously tagged me for a musical meme. And seeing as I love memes…and music…I couldn’t pass this one up. The rules are simple: post a song and/or video that puts a smile on your face no matter what kind of mood you are in. There are no special rules, do with it what you will, but it would be greatly appreciated if you give a little shout out and link back to the post from which it was stolen borrowed. So you must, must, MUST stop over at Hate and Anger and pay Mr. Parkour a visit. You won’t be disappointed. But be prepared for the chuckle factor for he keeps me in stitches daily.
Honestly, this was tougher for me than I thought it would be because there are so many ‘bouncy, happy, cheery’ songs that put a smile on my face no matter what my mood. Since this is my blog and I’m never very good at following rules I’m choosing two songs to post. The first song is a song that has always made me smile…even a long, long time ago when I was wearing my rainbow t-shirt and corduroys with a big comb stuck in the back pocket when I heard it as a youngster:
ELO – Mr. Blue Sky
PS: If any of you guys are daring enough to grow a ‘fro like Jeff Lynne’s…I would totally date you.
This next one is from my college years. Oh, what fun we had. This song always reminds me of hanging out with my bestest friend, JLCB, drinking, dancing, beating up someone’s coat, vomiting out of car windows and just being plain silly. It always makes me smile (and sometimes even giggle out loud) and I can’t help but dance when I hear it (much to the horror of my child).
Erasure – Star
Damn! Did Andy Bell just get hit in the head with an asteroid?
