My play lists that I have started adding are literally the first 3 songs that come up on my smart phone when I flip that little flippy thing you can do from the bottom of the screen and I press play and see what comes up. I let more play as I am making the coffee etc but thought the top three is enough to post. What are your “Happy Songs” that you start the day with or what is the sound track of your life?
Number 1. =Usher – Pop Ya Collar
Don’t let any one steal your crown or as I see it take your power today. You can eat it or throw it away. My advise throw it away.
No. 2 = Pharrell Williams – Happy
Just a classic. To me it never gets tiring. I can’t fail to be Happy when I hear this ….. or dance
No. 3 = Jimmy James & The Vagabonds – I’ll Go Where The Music Takes Me
Where ever you go or going today remember to do it to your own music or as Wayne Dyer would have said ‘Dance to the beat of your own drum’. I know the more authentic I am being to me and when I tap in to the power that is in me and within all of us everything just glides across the dance floor of life effortlessly like Fred Astaire
This was the first three songs I got up to today. I have had a Happy List on my smart phone for several years now but have to admit it was Pam Grout in E:Cubed that reminded me to wake up to a ‘Happy’ song and do the ‘Happy Dance’ first thing in the am.
Number 1. = Nina Simone – Feeling Good
It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me. We get to start a new life every morning if we don’t currently particularly like what it is looking like (flip it, switch it)
Imagine how good it felt making the bed whilst this was playing but please don’t imagine the what I looked like strutting around to it. Ooops popped that one in there like don’t think about about Pink Elephants. There its’ OK now you have pink elephants running around in your head (ouch).
Number 2. = Ultra Nate – Free
Your free to do what you want to do. You have to live your life and do what you want to do. What are you doing today to make that change? No shoulda, woulda, coulda’s please.
McFly – Star Girl
In my previous job a UK DJ, Chris Evans who is virtually the same age as me bar a few days so a big one coming soon a Chris !! Plays this on a Friday morning and I used to hear it on my commute but now I don’t hear it so I bought it. Some serious car dancing has gone down to this one (not to mention some very serious looks from other commuters but who cares, probably never see them again is my theory) but this morning it was some crazy kitchen ‘Happy’ dancing going down so saved the commuters that one
I’d love to know what your “Happy Play List’ is or if you haven’t got one, what would you put on it.
I have documented to myself recently advertisements that I have seen in the TV that have a positive edge to them.
One where by it documents little acts of random kindness and their positive effects, another that includes the song “love is something that when you give it away”.
I particularly like the man whilst waiting on hold on the phone, instead of calculating the time and becoming frustrated chair dances around the office whilst eating chocolate and then shares the chocolate with a colleague.
Cat and budgie is another of my favourites and the paint advert whereby colour is banned and everything is grey and a lorry load of paint is treated like alcohol in the prohibition, a stray pot gets away and a girl paints her apartment and the tag line is “your life is a story” #changeyourstory.
Social network sites are often rebuked but I personally use them as a way to expand my world and connect to other like-minded people and I have seen things like #100dayshappy and #30daysofgratitude on them. I personally haven’t taken part because gratitude and happiness are instilled in my everyday life but talking of happiness may I take this opportunity to personally thank Pharrell Williams for his amazing song.
I’d love to hear from people to know is it just me or are others noticing a shift in a more positive direction whoop whoop !!!!
