... the other Black experience

Mine are:


-Love Shack by B-52's

-Roam by B-52's

-Today by Smashing Pumpkins

-Can't Stop Loving You by Jacksoul

-Why Don't You Get A Job by The Offspring

-Tijuana Taxi by Herb Alpert Brass Band


Everytime I hear these songs, I get a smile on my face.  So, what are your "happy" songs?

I was having a really shitty day at work once when this guy came in and played me a song off of his ipod and i've loved it ever since. Whenever I hear it, it takes me back to that day going from being pissed to calm and realxed - Elbow - One day like this.

p.s I hate Apple. My ipod was faulty! I miss it so
