Kelly did a post over at her blog about favorite five feel good songs. To my way of thinking, a feel good song is one of those songs that you cannot hear on the radio without singing along.
I grew up in the sixties and early seventies, so my 'feel good' music is from that time frame. Understand also that you can't get too hung up on the lyrics of it. It's the beat man.
I tried to download the videos, but could not, but click on, peoples, click on...
Okay. 'Fess up. Could you watch this without your lips moving?
Go to town every Saturday, church every sunday, awwwwww Nutbush! Nutbush City limits.....
Old black water, keep on rolling, Mississippi moon won't you keep on shining on me?
If I died tomorrow, would you still remember me? I'm as free as a bird now, and this bird you cannot chaaaaaaaaaaaange....
Is this a real life, or is it fantasy? Caught in a landslide, no escape from reality...
These songs bring back memories of other places and other people and other times. And they always make me sing.
But putting together this post I also came up with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQDaUjI1y3Q&feature=related She packed up her bags and she took off down the road, she left me here stranded with the bills she owed, she took my address and my name, ain't it a doggone shame, sunspot baby: I'm going to catch up with you some time. And what about 'they do respect her but, they sure love to watch her strut' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6qbeIwn5jR8&feature=related. Today's music ain't got the same soul, I like that old time rock and roll http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4lglk29Tp0&feature=related
Yeah, Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet put out a lot of stuff that is very singable even if you're in your fifties, driving a Buick down the road. I admit it, I just can't stop at five. There's a lot of good music out there.
I've still got to turn the music off. I've got homework to do. Some things never change.
What are your 'can't help but sing along' songs?
