Get happy now, damn it!

Okay, so things are a little less distressing now. I suppose the pot of coffee I'm drinking is part of it.

At any rate, Jessica (of Ultratart) posted a list of songs she can't possibly be unhapping listening to. Looking over the list, it seems like a good idea.
  • Brass in Pockets - The Pretenders
  • Every Inambition - The Trews
  • Go - The Apples in Stereo
  • No for the 13th Time/Size of a Cow - The Wonderstuff
  • De Rhum, Des Femme - Soldat Louis
  • Margaritaville - Jimmy Buffet (I can't sing worth a damn, but it's so liberating to wail away to the chorus. "WastiIiin' awaaAAayyY agaAAIin in MAAArrgaritaAAVilLLLL!" Pick a key - any key! - and sing along!)
  • Honky Tonk Women - Rolling Stones
  • Excursion Around the Bay - Great Big Sea
  • Five - Look People
  • Radiation Vibe - Fountains of Wayne
  • Tug on the Line - Tommy James and the Shondells
  • Istanbul (Not Constantinople) - They Might Be Giants

  • Home for a Rest - Spirit of the West (admit it - this was your theme song in university, right?)
  • Oye Como Va - Tito Puentes
  • Dancing Queen - ABBA
  • Le Lys Vert - La Bottine Souriante and The Chieftans
  • Northern Lites - Super Furry Animals
