Songs of unbridled joy

Post by a layer of chips » Fri Oct 26, 2007 09:54

Like Spearmint's 'We're Going Out', for example.



What songs do you listen to when you're feeling really ace?

for me, there are still few songs that can keep up with the cure's "just like heaven" for just jumping around, feeling exuberant and stuff to.

the lucksmiths' "midweek midmorning" comes close

as does sodastream "blinky"

and the spice girls "spice up your life" (yes, really!)

and the honeys "the one you can't have"

supergrass "alright"

pulp "babies"

er... i seem to have a lot, and i'm forgetting a few too...

That's the most cynical song of unbridled joy in the world.

Did I get it wrong again? Cuh.

Well, it's a song of unbridled joy for me, anyway. I forgot how funny the video was.

Sound familiar?
Fun, fun, fun (jeremy)
Me, me, me (fifi)
Take, take, take (jeremy)
Fun, fun, fun
James dean posters on their wall
{five killed in a car-crash}
What a sad little end to it all
{five killed in a car-crash}
Last seen having lots of fun
{five dumped in a river}
Barefoot and on the run
{five dumped in a river}

I am mad from scandinavia
I want a guy in the london area
He must be crazy and sagitarius
cause Im leo and Im hilarious

Fun, fun, fun (jeremy)
Me, me, me (fifi)
Take, take, take (jeremy)
Fun, fun, fun

Last seen drinking daddys own beer
{five poisoned over dinner}
Singing abbas mamma mia
{five poisened over dinner}
Drop dead watching thunderbirds fly
{five get over excited}
Poster on their wall says why?
{five get over excited}

I am guy from camden town
My hair is curly but I gel it down
My clothes are black but my bread is brown
Im really into early motown

Fun, fun, fun (jeremy)
Me, me, me (fifi)
Take, take, take (jeremy)
Fun, fun, fun

Feigning concern, a conservative pastime
Makes you feel doubtful right from the start
The expression she pulls is exactlly like last time
Youve got to conclude she just hasnt a heart
It's a bloody ace song though, isn't it?

'ooh child' by the five stairsteps... although I suppose it's more a song of hope than joy realised... even so it stirs my heart

songs about food make me feel joyful, particularly if they're not actually songs about food but songs about youknowwhat's and ladies handskneesandboompsadisies

I had the song 'hot cakes' going thru' my head this morning

I think it's by the woggles, anyway that would fall into that category

I imagine they were referring to big bottoms

and of course, sir mix-a-lot's 'I like big butts'

that makes me heppy

dammit, I nearly said gas huffer

but then I nearly said the mono men too

girl trouble's version of 'batman' more often than not has me doing the batusi like a crazy motherfucker- that's pretty joyful

how to batusi here: http://www.arune.com/batusi/howto.html

I saw calvin johnson do the batusi on stage with heavenly at the camden underworld in 1965, batusi fans

I think that is a brilliant song! The rest of their stuff that I've heard is mediocre, to be honest, but that is amazing.

I forgot how good that song is.
I'm well ready for dancing now.

I'm also too drunk to think of my own Song of Joy.
But there are a lot of them.

Wooooo!

It is, yeah.

I remember buying that single when it came out and thinking it the was the best song ever written. The lyrics are fantastic.

All this talk of The Housemartins is making me drool. Weren't they ace? Four blokes doing harmonies and dancing silly to dead clever songs. Ace. I've got an unbridled joy thing for 'We're Not Deep'.

The Tidy Ups also make me jump around. Look here!

Does anyone else think there's a passing resemblance between young Norman Cook and tastyzine?
