Thank you all - I listened to them all - they were great - just what I needed. I'll always spell frog PHROG from now on.


These songs - while they don't a strong upbeat are always special to me. I worked most if not all Saturdays in high school and college. So Saturdays were always special to when I was able to take them off. I guess all my days are Saturday now.
Thanks

Simon and Garfunkel’s Cecelia which always make me laugh, it’s not really a love song but a parody, love the Jubilation section



Leonard Bernstein conducting Ode to Joy, music starts at 3:37 if you don’t want to listen to Bernstein. When he played it at the Berlin Wall, they changed the words to “Ode to Freedom” which I think of as my FIRE tune.

good call cuppa. i played the bridge over album while driving through the blue ridge mountains. what great album. fortunately it was after season so i didn't disturb anyone with my singing.

happy new age, huh. there's a challenge. if by happy, you mean satisfying, then:





edit: here's a new age artist who might not make you happy, but maybe help you understand your sadness:

verve produced an interesting series of remixes where they matched contemporary dj's to remix old jazz originals.

here's a remix of ella fitzgerald singing "slap that bass".

the world is in a mess
with politics and taxes
and people grinding axes
there is no happiness...

happiness is not a riddle
while i'm list'ning to that big bass fiddle...



here's some more...
