Happy Music

Salty Miss Jill inspired me, these songs make me glad on a dismal, rainy, pre-holiday day. What music makes you grin?

I love dismal, rainy days! I like to put on some nice adagios or Eastern Orthodox liturgical pieces and float away into the fog....

But! If I have to perk up to write a paper or something:
Golem
A*Teens
Al Bowlly
Ray of Light
Harry Belafonte
Hedwig
Rocky Horror
B52s
Deee-lite
And assorted Swedish folk or folk/rock bands like Harv, Hoven Droven, Vartina, Garmarna, Vasen.

Mmm how do you say,
Delicious, delovely
Delectable, devine
How do you say,
Degorgeous? Dewith it?
Degroovy? Define?

Ooh lala lalalalala
Faux francaise
How do you say delicious?
How do you say delovely?
How do you say delectable?
How do you say devine?
How do you say degroovy?
Dewith it?
How do you say Deee-Lite?

I feel happier already...

One of the things that makes me happy that I am as ancient as I am is that I was old enough to go see the Style Council live three times in the late 1980s. Some people dismiss them as being light, but their vibe was always right on target with mine -- deeply committed politically progressiveness and such groovy, timeless style. Is Paul Weller the coolest, sexiest dude in that video or what?

P.S., I'd add Scott Walker's "It's Raining Today" to your mix.

Go betweens, such a criminally under rated 80's pop band.
