(Me in the Glee Club -- Second Row, Second from Right)


So on my other blog, my readers have been telling me, "You have to watch 'Glee'." The last thing I needed in my life was something else to watch. In fact, my mother asked me not to get her watching anymore shows. (But I did make her watch "Glee" with me, and I think she'll have room for one more.)

One of my favorite things to do is see plays and musicals. Glee is like getting that every week on television. Granted, there are some storylines that resemble the desperate housewives, but the music...oh my gosh, it's fabulous. Broadway reworkings of old favorites by Queen, Journey even my favorite song from "Les Miserables" -- all of these songs were already on my iPod, but now I have the Glee version. It makes me happy. It makes me feel like I just left San Francisco's theater district, and I don't have to cut anyone off to get across Market Street. Happy music, happy life. What music makes you happy?

The songs from old musicals I grew up watching: Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, The Wizard of Oz, Singing in the Rain, etc., all of those good old favorites. But, there are lots of new tunes that can make me happy also, but some how, when I'm down, it's the old music that really seems to help. Like good old Julie Andrews and her "spoonful of sugar..."

I'm a big fan of Twila Paris! :)

But for secular music, the Beatles make me smile!

Toby Mac makes me smile. When I'm pooped like today, then I hit a little Anna Nalick or Jack Johnson. Every now and then, to inspire my coworkers I blast Veggie Tales "Busy, Busy Dreadfully Busy". In fact, I did that to a co-worker who doesn't know how to work at his own desk and chatters aimlessly. My boss came in laughing. The poor co-worker looked a little defeated as he marched back to his desk as Larry the Cucumber continued to croon. It made me happy. Am I awful?!?

I'm the same as above, my husband and I will play veggie tales -the silly songs especially- all the time! But Christmas music probably makes the happiest : ) but I can't go to it any time of the year.

It's hard to not be happy when the Veggie Tales are playing. My favorite is the Cheeseburger song. : )

I have to be able to sing along with it. Hubby loves classical music, but I don't, which is surprising, because I consider myself the more cultured of the two of us. :) He makes me listen to LOTR soundtracks on long drives. Snoozer!

I also really love anything with good tight harmony. As an alto, I often can't reach the notes to sing the melody, so I improvise the alto as I go. Sometimes the result is good and other times, not so much. :)
