Day 3 – A song that makes you Happy: Walking on Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves
A long time ago I went travelling around Europe. Sometimes alone, sometimes with a friend and always with a faithful old tent, camper stove and Dolly the car. I made my way around places that I’d only ever read about – wonderful cities, views and monuments. And each day I’d send a postcard back to M of another fountain, another ruin. A city encased in volcanic ash.
And that summer there was a song that belted out from the radios of Europe which seemed so appropriate. This song reminds me of that wonderful time travelling and of a happy reunion. I still have the single that was bought for me stashed in the garage. The song made me happy then and makes me very happy now whenever I hear it!
“now every time I go for the mail box, gotta hold myself down
‘cos I just cant wait till you write me, you’re coming around
I’m walking on sunshine (whoa oh)”
Now Celine are you paying attention? That’s how you write a love song. Something tells me the video was cheaper to make as well.
