I decided to buy and download some ridiculously sappy, happy songs this morning to put me in a good mood! So I went on iTunes and bought “Sunshine on my Shoulders” by John Denver and “Rainbow Connection” by The Muppets ❤
“Rainbow Connection” has some good lyrics:
“Who said that wishes would be heard and answered when wished on the morningstar?
Someone thought of that and someone believed it.
Look what it’s done so far.
What’s so amazing that keeps us stargazing? And what do we think we might see?
Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection.
The lovers, the dreamers and me.
All of us under its spell.
We know that it’s probably magic.”
The lyrics are a bit disjointed, but I love that the song mentions “dreamers” and “magic!” My favorite line has always been: “The lovers, the dreamers and me.”
Kids’ songs are so optimistic and bright!
Healing Hint: Play some kids’ music! You can even buy children’s lullabies on iTunes, some of pop songs made into slowed-down instrumental music. And you can buy an instrumental version of “Rainbow Connection.” It’s good for your soul to hear happy songs!
