Obla Di Obla Da!

Okay, so I'm not sure exactly what this means, but this golden oldie from the Beatles, was always a song that made my heart happy...and still does!  I'd sing it in the shower, driving to school, and just about anytime I needed a boost. Guess looking back, it must have been the upbeat melody. Today's blog is about listening to your favorite songs and hymns. Music is just another source of  happiness and another key to having a happy heart.  I'm also in love with Kelly Clarkson's "What Doesn't Kill You" (this song should be our theme song ladies)--it's so true!  And then of course there's Whitney Houston's "There's a Hero in You."  Add to my list, Billy Joel's "Uptown Girl," Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," and Chubby Checker's infamous "Twist," just to name a few. Discover what songs make you happy and make you want to jump off your couch and dance in your living room like you did when you were a teenager.  Make a CD or download them on your IPod, I-tunes, I-whatever, so you can listen to them when you work out, walk, or are just driving in the car.  Praise and worship songs also need to be a must-have and number 1 on your and list.  Go to K-Love and find out the artists behind those songs you love.  So turn up that radio, belt out the words (who cares if you don't know all of them, have you ever watched The Singing Bee?  The happiest people singing are the ones who don't know half the words!)  And pretend you are Tom Cruise on The Oprah Show, or even better, a Tom Cruise in Risky Business (you know the scene where he's just dancing in his shirt and socks?), and just let it all hang out!
