Day 1,295 – Thankful for Happy Music, Funny Videos, and Sharing Both With Family

There’s only one right way to start my blog tonight…

Some things in life are bad. They can really make you mad.

Other things just make you swear and curse.

When you’re chewin’ on life’s gristle, don’t grumble, give a whistle.

And this’ll help things turn out for the best… and…

Always look on the bright side of life.

Always look on the light side of life. – Eric Idle

If you suddenly have an itch you have to scratch you can scratch away here:

Right after listening to that classic we shot chasers of Don’t Worry, Be Happy by Bobby McFerrin and Three Little Birds by Bob Marley. Talk about three songs that could make you smile anytime. Even as much as I dislike Don’t Worry, Be Happy I cant help but smile and sing along whenever it comes on.

As an added bonus there was also a bonus video that popped up on my YouTube app. Eric Idle on the Late Late Show from about a year ago. It was awesome! It started as very quaint lead-in for Bright Side of Life but then it took a much darker, and more hysterical, turn. Next thing you know they are singing a song that sounds the same musically but has completely different lyrics… We Are Probably All Going to Die. I know, it sounds morbid, but it cracked me up!

This evening I am so thankful for those great songs and funny video. While there is so much wonderful in the world to put a smile on my face the songs and video made it even a little easier to crack a grin. Being able to share them with my family, smiles included, made it all the better.

If you’re night isn’t going as planned or something is just off tonight please remember those great words of advice from the aforementioned Mr. Idle…

If life seems jolly rotten, There’s something you’ve forgotten

And that’s to laugh and smile and dance and sing

When you’re feeling in the dumps, Don’t be silly chumps

Just purse your lips and whistle, that’s the thing..


Always look on the bright side of life

Always look on the bright side of life
