This thread is for songs manifesting only feel good vibes.

Usually I listen to audiobooks downloaded to an mp3 player while bicycling or downloaded on to a thumbdrive when driving alone. Occasionally I take a break or am in-between book titles and listen to the music genre that always makes me smile; no need for visuals to appreciate this music.
Latest playlist to play shuffled when in the mood:

This song gets my blood pumping. Going to Dallas on Wednesday to get a second dose. Great Thread Clemson Girl :thumb:

Two that always cheer me up when I'm "bummed out":

Jackson Browne's 'For a Dancer':

The Jam's 'Ghosts':

It's a goofy video, but this is about music.

:thumb: ... from the same busking event, this video was released Tuesday. Another 3 cover compilation here with their own spin. What really jumps out in their videos is how well recorded these live performances are.

I always wanted to name a dog Chifaffa, just to see how many people would smile when they heard it.

Also, I always thought Louis was a bigger guy ... he looks short and thin next to Ella.

His voice reminded me of The Police, which also reminded me of Stewart Copleand, who is a proper reggae drummer and that's what this version lacks.

This one is for being very much on topic, but there's I shot the sherrif in the same concert/playlist too. It's one of those songs I've know for a very long time but have been bored with almost as long, until I heared a version like this.

"Feel good songs ...". :foo:

That doesn't sound like my cup of tea.

I'll answer that with something from the era

Speaking of good musicians, That's the all white Muscle Shoals Studio Rythm Section aka Swampers Behind Wilson on all his best recordings. Same for Aretha Franklin and a list of others too long to type.

"Feel good" isn't typically a quality I seek out in my music selection, but this is the first tune that came to mind:

Joe Bikerider 01-20-22 10:54 PM

For my friend Julie who lives right outside Reno

Another song of empowerment - Emmy Meli's performance video just released yesterday


skidder 01-21-22 08:24 PM

How about some Joe Satriani? It always cheers me up:

Or maybe some more traditional orchestra music courtesy of Aaron Copeland:

Same song, the 'rock-n-roll' version by ELP:

How about some surf music to make your day a little 'cheerier' (is that even a word?). And an RIP for Bob Bogle, the last of the Ventures founding members who passed last week:
