    DON'T PANIC!!! i only have three sets of these song-prompt dice, and this is the last of the three! this yazoo set tends to produce rather sad songs, but writing them is still a load of fun!

    "i hear your voice"

    unless someone posts while i'm typing this, that's two vids in a row here on the thread, with the rather lovely caramel filigree hamster ukes (or is that design a betta fish? grape leaves? no i'm sure it's a filigree siberian hamster...)

    "Traumerei" (1838) by Robert Schumann. The process of learning a new melody makes me happy, even if I'm not happy with the results yet.

    Playing with new gadgets makes me happy . Here's some Dylan.



    Also having occasional clean sounding barre chords makes me happy. I didn't believe that was possible a couple of months ago .

    “Playing and singing the Beatles on uke brings me no happiness whatsoever,” said nobody on the Seasons ever!

    I’m particularly partial to their early songs, and this one is especially good fun to sing and play. It’s been too long since the last Griffs collab (the Griffs are me and Kevin ‘Mezcalero’ Griffin for the uninitiated), so he’s doing the fab lead vocal and electric uke solo and I’m doing keyboards, electric uke, rhythms and backing vocals. Hope it makes you all happy!

    Better Place by Rachel Platten is one of my favorite songs. I also included pics of my favorite things.

    I like to play songs slow or in a minor key or do them with an accent. It is always nice
    to hear a song done with a different treatment. I was blown away when I heard
    Ben L'Oncle Soul perform "I've got you under my skin" and it brought me unexpected joy.

    When I think HAPPY - I think Kazoo....

    Here is a pathologically optimistic song I wrote this morning to illustrate that old saying: "Every grey cloud has a silver lining".

    The title is, of course, based on one of George Formby's catch phrases.

    I hope you like:

    Here’s a song that makes me happy because of the message, James Taylor’s Shower the Oeople. I quickly recorded itwhen I got to work which explains why I looked a little jumpy. I wanted to finish it before my colleagues came in ��

    Today I'm happy because teaching is over for the semester. Hooray! Just don't mention the grading.

    And... what would a happy week be without some TMBG? I promise I won't make a habit of the TMBG. Although I shouldn't make promises I can't keep should I...



    TMBG songs are usually pretty dark beneath the surface! But they're fun too.
