Everybody Walk the Dinosaur.

My son will be so proud.  I’m finally learning how to use the iPod Nano he gave me for Christmas.  His brother, who is stuck with me at home this summer, probably wants to throttle him.  I’ve compiled play lists that make me feel good. Songs that, when you hear them, they put a smile on your face.  For a sixteen-yr-old, I’m sure it’s a form of torture.

Too bad.  I’m working on my graphics projects and painting projects while I listen and loving it.  I informed the teenage son he’s welcome to take his complaints outdoors and do some much needed weeding in the yard.  Said teenager quickly stopped the bellyaching and retreated to his room.

As a general rule, I don’t care for the hyper-sweet top 40 songs of the past, but a few gems might be on the fine line between ‘ick’ and ‘aawww….’   I have about 50 songs compiled so far, including ‘In the Jungle’ by the Tokens, Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s ‘Over the Rainbow’, and Robin Williams’ version of ‘My Way’ from Happy Feet (the movie).  So you get the idea.  Fun.  Happy.  Upbeat.

I’m asking for suggestions.  What are your current or past favorites?  Songs that change your mood?  Let me know. Thanks!

Did you even have to ask? Anything by Buffett. Maybe Caribbean Soul,
School Boy Heart, and don’t forget Boat Drinks!
