There are many songs I love – too many to mention or even count, I suspect. Like everyone, I love particular songs for various reasons; memories they evoke, lyrics I can identify with, tunes that are hummable. However, there are just a few songs I love for no other reason than that they make me smile. They may not be particularly deep or meaningful songs, and most of them don’t hold particular memories for me, but they do bring me a certain sense of joy. I can’t really tell you why, because I don’t really know. I just like them. Well, yes, some of them are quite silly. Here is a selection of such songs/tunes. There are more, but these are the ones that came to mind most easily:
Longest Time (Billy Joel)
Beaker’s Ode to Joy (
My Spirit Sang All Day (Gerald Finzi)
All I Want for Christmas is You (Mariah Carey)
Singin’ in the Rain (Gene Kelly)
I hope they made you smile a bit, too.
