Okay. Maybe it's not that amazing. But they're songs I hadn't given too much thought before - such as My Girl.
I've been going through a weird kind of slump lately - instead of just feeling depressed, I've been way too crabby for no good reason. This has resulted in the same kind of scenario as depression by itself does: I decide to stay away from people for their own good (though Spousal Unit's been the only one to suffer my ire; thanks for putting up with me, love).
I've been doing my best to combat that by hanging out with people anyway; the feeling fades for a while, but then returns. So I've been making an effort to turn off the news and turn on the happy music more often. It doesn't solve the problem, but it does give me a dose of happy, for however brief a time.
I Feel Good - James Brown
I Can See Clearly Now - Johnny Nash
Downtown - Petula Clark
Under the Boardwalk - The Drifters
Down on the Corner - Credence Clearwater Revival
Dear Prudence - The Beatles
And a few bonuses, from a different era:
Don't Stop Me Now - Queen
Walking on Sunshine - Katrina and the Waves
It's Your Thing - The Isley Brothers
Everybody - Ingrid Michaelson
