Our Happy Songs

We have so much fun creating, discovering, and improvising our happy songs.  Often when my two children and I are confined to a car, there are three melodies and verses being shared simultaneously.  I sing "Exactly" as soon as we leave home, my version of morning coffee.  We sing loudly through tunnels the word "Tunnel!"  We sing "I have peace like a river" through cemeteries.  Then there is Pharrell William's Happy at the city train station.  We also love singing the ABCs, nursery rhymes, and "This little light of mine."  We love music by Elizabeth Mitchell, Anne-Louise Sterry, Barbra Streisand, Raffi, Beatles, Nirvana, and Putumayo mixes.  When in need of new tunes, we head for the library. 
What are your happy songs?
Join us in song!
