Walking on Sunshine

I missed the Ten on Tuesday for a few weeks ago (no good excuse) but now I’ve decided I just have to do it!  The theme was “10 Songs that Put You into a Great Mood” and I’ve got quite a few of those! It’s hard to put them into ranked order, so I’m going to do just a general 10 list, in no particular order:

1) Anything by “Weird Al” Yankovic, but I’m going to say our favorites are “Virus Alert” and “Trash Day”

2) My Little Red Book – by Love, but I prefer the Mel Torme version

3) Pennsylvania Polka by Frankie Yankovic (no relation to Al!) I loved this in the movie “Groundhog Day” and since have been listening to every version I can get my hands on.

4) Safety Dance by Men Without Hats, but I also love the version by the Glee cast.

5) Baroque Hoedown by Perrey-Kingsley.  This is the theme from Disneyland’s Electric Light Parade.

6) Godzilla by Blue Oyster Cult. I just love the campy-ness of this song!

7) Surfin’ Bird by The Ramones.  It’s pretty similar to the original, but it’s by The Ramones!

8) Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep – I love the version by Lush, but pretty much all of them are very fun.

9) Yummy Yummy Yummy by the 1910 Fruitgum Company  How can’t you sing along with such a fun song!

10) Classical Gas by Mason Williams. My son is learning something called Classical something on the viola and I was so disappointed to hear it wasn’t Classical Gas! Check out Glen Campbell’s version too!
