happy | song*ography ...

~by that kid with the funny hat~ 
Pharrell Williams

 Because I'm happy 
clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I'm happy 
clap along if you know what happiness is to you

stumbling across childhood mementos make me happy
so go ahead and clap along
I mean, if that's what you want to do ...

memories of childhood are the dreams that stay with you after you wake 
― Julian Barnes


Be sure to visit Kathy and others over on

* Funny little side story:  I was working out at the gym and a little old lady on the machine next to me looked over and said in reference to 'Happy' playing over the speakers, "well, isn't that a good song to exercise to - just makes me want to clap along".
Simple, non-vulgar lyrics can be so refreshing.
(not that I don't appreciate a good cuss now and then)


  1. Marble Bokeh??!!?? Be still my happy heart :). And how I loved playing jacks growing up...let me count the ways: onesies, twosies, threesies, etc. Fun interpretation my friend! Thanks for linking up to Song-ography.

  2. Wonderful DOF in both of these!
    I love going in Cracker Barrel and seeing little games like these and candy from childhood. Happy memories indeed. As a matter of fact I saw Bonomo Taffy this week and if my teeth were better.....
