Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Sometimes, when things just don’t seem to be going my way, or I’m tired and just feel like I can’t muster up any more motivation, I hear one of those songs. You know the ones I’m talking about. The ones that bring a smile to your face, no matter how down you’re feeling at that moment, and force you to sing along.  Last week, that song was “Dreams” by The Cranberries.

And now, for your listening pleasure:

Okay, so this music video is definitely early ’90s, and definitely NOT one of the greatest music videos of all time, but it’s worth a watch just to give it a listen.

While this title is probably in my top 5 of pick-me-up songs, I could probably list, oh, about 30 or 40 others that work almost, if not just as well.  A few examples: Pride (In The Name Of Love) by U2, One Girl Revolution by Superchick, Different People by No Doubt, and The Fox by Nickle Creek.

Just in case you’re not familiar with The Fox, here’s a live version:
