Musical Amnesia Cured



Today, on my way back home from work I was talking to Runa about songs that make you cry and songs that make you happy. I had so many in my head but couldn’t really zero down on any one particular song. So now that I have had time to think about our little topic, Runa, we have a list-

Tunes that make me smile:

Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give You Up
David Bowie - Let's Dance
Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes - The Time of My Life
Starship - We Built This City
Toto - Africa
Van Halen - Jump
Frank Sinatra’s - The Way You Look Tonight
Beatles- All My Loving, Come Together
Dave Matthew’s Band- American Baby
Sugar Ray- Every Morning and When It’s Over
Gorillaz - Clint Eastwood
Beautiful Day - U2

While these blockbuster hits are as varied as the artists who've performed them, they all share some common cord: They make you feel good.

That may be the secret sauce.

Now for the list that makes me all gooey eyed:

Cry Me A River - Julie London
Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
Here Without You- 3 Doors Down
I Will Remember You - Sarah McLachlan
Sick Cycle Carousel and You and Me- Lifehouse
Goodbye To You - Michelle Branch
U2- With or Without you

Had a lot more to add to the list but these so far are so perfect and blistering that now I’m off to liven up the mood with some serial killing action with Dexter.
