Trouble

Just love this song...just a little down today for no particular reason. You know how that goes sometimes. Please post your favorites that come to mind when you're in a bit of a blue mood.

When I'm down I crave upbeat music. However a blue song or two will come to my mind...like this one...

I saw your post the other day but didn't open it. Today I decided to look for the post to see what was going on. I had already looked up my favoriate trouble song and had it ready to include...well...it's the same song you posted! I googled the Travelers Insurance song with the worried dog. Yep, same one!

DH and I both love that dog in the commercial. A few weeks ago I was fretting about something and DH gave me a hug and teased me that I was as bad as that dog...gonna worry yourself to death. He's ribbed me several times since then...trouble, trouble, trouble...worry, worry, worry. Somehow, it is very endearing, and comforting. Always makes me smile and lifts my mood. Hope your blues have flown out the window by now.

The lyrics and the music - so defiant. This is the theme for the frog who is choking the heck out of the seagull, even as he's going down the seagull's throat.

Its been said before. Sometimes the best way to be happy is to be sad. At least for a little while, once in a while.

This is the song I play when I feel blue , because it helps me transition from feeling down to feeling like there is a new and better day awaiting...
