Hey, I mean sleeping. Seperately. Get your minds out of the gutter.
But in any case, posting by moi will be completely not happening until Monday.
Thus, in my absence, here's a little project for us all:
Coolest Post-Elvis Song or Record Referencing The Emotion of Happiness or the Word Happiness Itself (Title or Lyric!!!)
No arbitrary rules this time -- just smile, please! And please remember: Our ongoing project to insert Billy Corgan's pretentious cueball noggin into every Weekend Listomania will resume next time.
And my totally top of my head Top Seven is:
7. The Rolling Stones -- Happy
A/k/a "Keith's Song." Obvious, I know, but what can you do.
6. The Edwin Hawkins Singers -- Oh Happy Day
If memory serves, John Lennon's favorite record of 1969 (along with Dave Edmunds "I Hear You Knockin'," which of course has no thematic connection whatsoever).
5. Neil Innes --How Sweet to Be an Idiot
A/k/a "The George W. Bush Song." Okay, a cheap shot...
4. Dashboard Confessional -- Standard Lines
"Hope you're happy." Not a particularly great song, but included just so we can have something recorded in this century...
3. Small Faces -- Happiness Stan
My second favorite song on the third greatest concept album of the 60s.
2. The Who -- Happy Jack
"I saw ya!"
And the number one coolest song about that up and positive feeling, there's not even a contest you MFs, so don't bug me, obviously is --
1. The Beatles -- I'm Happy Just to Dance With You
As with "I Want to Hold Your Hand," the title may not be 100 percent honest about the singer's intentions, but a delightful song and sentiment in any event, don't you think?
Awrighty then -- and what would your choices be?
