Question – What Song Always Makes You Smile?

I was in a real funk the other day.  My son was in the middle of what seemed like his 100th tantrum of the day (because I was trying to remove his ‘Thomas the Tank Engine’ t-shirt in order to get his pajamas on, my daughter had called me bossy (where did she even learn that word?) and my husband was going on and on about how he didn’t like supper and wishes next time I would make cabbage rolls (also known as a tricky and complicated dish I don’t want to make because I don’t and can’t spend 2 hours in the kitchen making them).  I decided to escape the madness for a few minutes and have some alone time in my room.  I turned on the radio and instantly, a smile came to my face and all my stresses went out the window.  Why?

Because this song was on the radio.

“St-Elmo’s Fire” is one of those songs that, no matter what kind of mood I’m in, no matter how deeply into my p.m.s. cycle I am, it will put a smile on my face!

This is another one of those songs:

Actually, pretty much anything by Bon Jovi will do it for me.  Because you just can’t go wrong with Bon Jovi.  They are still my absolute favorite band.  And Jon is still super yummy…  When he screeches that note in “I’ll Be There For You”…I still get chills and weak in the knees! *sigh*

All this leads me to my question:  What song always makes you smile, no matter how frustrated you are feeling?

  1. I remember your Bon Jovi CD at work, lol.

    I’m a big Jack Johnson fan so anything of his always puts a smile on my face.

    Right now I’m loving his newest single – You and Your Heart. Definitely puts a smile on my face.

  2. Okay, I can’t believe I’m admitting this, but “Wannabe” by the Spice Girls is guaranteed to put a smile on my face 🙂

  3. Anytime I hear Break My Stride by Matthew Wilder it break whatever funk I’m in. Here’s a link

    Like Katya, I’m also a big Jack Johnson fan. He’s one of the best stress relief music artists around.

  4. I HEART Bon Jovi 🙂

    I’m a Killers girl all the way. But I also smile when I hear a Mika song.

  5. Katya – I have to admit I had to look up Jack Johnson…*blush* Actually, I accidentally entered John Jackson into my search…then quickly assumed that was NOT who you were talking about! lol

    Patti – Wannabe is a ‘smile on your face’ song for sure!

    Jen D. – Break My Stride is on my list too! It’s on my iPod and everything!

    Mandi – I used to listen to Mika at work and drive everyone nuts! He’s great. And, oh what a surprise about you liking the Killers. Really, I had no idea… ;p

  6. LOL…wow these songs bring back a lot of memories for me!! and hey Julie….ur way toooo young when these songs came out!! LOL.

    so to age me even further…i love most Journey songs but mainly just {almost} any music is always good!

  7. Sharon – I Love Journey! They are definitely a ‘make you smile’ band!
