I was wondering what songs make people feel good and why? One of my favourite feel good songs is Mr.Bojangles by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. I know it's a weird one as it's about a man who likes to dance and his dog and how when the mans dog dies he stops dancing. I think it's the loyality thing I like and the fact that the man doesn't forget how important his dog was to him.
I like anything by Cat Stevens -- moonshadow or anything from the Harold and Maude Sountrack is coming to mind right now.
I just got new ringtones for my new phone last night. The Halloween theme song, a taylor swift song and Santa Baby. I lost my Last Friday Night by Katy Perry and Breakfast at Tiffanys. oh well
You Only Get What You Give by The New Radicals
A few songs I'd don't think I know here,I'll have to check them out.
That is a good song, haven't thought about it for a while
I like The House at Pooh Corner
The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band recorded it too
I love most Ivor Novello songs. They have great tunes, and lovely words. I always feel better after listening to them.

I like singing plygain (traditional Welsh Christmas carols). I did so over the past weekend at a big folk event. It was great to see most people leaving the plygain sessions with huge grins on their faces.
It doesn't seem to matter what your background is. I don't celebrate Christmas as a Christian festival, but the music still works enormous magic. In fact, I'm planning to make a 6-hour trip each way for three hours more of plygain singing next month!
Where do you live and where are you going to sing?
I live in Treorci in South-East Wales, and I hope to go to sing in Caernarfon in North-West Wales at the end of November
I took my kids camping in Carmarthen, English spelling perhaps? A few years ago. Lovely place, I'm biased though. I lived in North Wales for almost four years. Biggest mistake of my life was to return to Manchester.
Carmarthen is the English name for the town. The Welsh name is Caerfyrddin, which means Merlin's Fort. The name Myrddin changes to begin with F because of a mutation (mutations are the bane of all Welsh learners!)
I escaped to Wales 3 years ago after 14 years in the dull grey wastes of Nottingham suburbs and finally found my roots at this late stage of my life. Wales has adopted me and I feel a real emotional tie to the land, so I now call myself Welsh by choice, even though I am not Welsh by genes.
The more I immerse myself in Welsh culture, the more enriched I become. Plygain carols are one of the highlights, but there are many others
Gosh, I love all things British. You people have the most lyrical names for towns and such. Names which herald us back to times forgotten, of kings and heros, magic and dirt as old as the faeries themselves.
There are some rather silly place names in Britain too. There are two villages, called Upper and Lower Slaughter, a Piddle River, a mountain in Scotland called The Bastard. Also, there is a Fannyfield, a Shitterton, a Shittington, a Knob, a Fudgepack, a Cockshoot, a Bitchfield, a Bell End, a Cock, a Cockplay, an Upperthong, a Twatt, a Tarty, a Brokenwind, a Butt of Lewis, an East Breast., a Cockup, a Titty Ho, a Faggot, a Crotch, a Fanny Hands, a Gay and a Sodom. And these are to name just a few.
You may be more Welsh by genes than you think. The Welsh are descended from the ancient celtic Britons, and recent genetic testing has revealed that the British gene pool was little altered by Roman, Saxon, Viking or Norman invasons, and that most native British people have more DNA from celtic ancestors than from the later peoples to occupy these islands..
I loved the country, people, the beautiful countryside. At the time I was in my very early twenties, work led me there. I was a city girl and couldn't quite adapt to the laid back, civilized nature, of country life. I'd love to now though, when my kids are completely independent.
I bet those plygain - sounds like a potential trivial pursuit question - sound stunning. We don't listen to enough traditional carols.
Some songs that make me really happy at times now make me all nostalgic because i no longer can have those happy moments back from time, and those songs link to those moments in my life. Though there are a few songs i used to listen to long long before and among them is Britney Spears first album's track "Born to make you happy". It brings such an unbeatable smile to my face and my heart- because it brings back to me the earliest time that was innocent and free. Same goes for the song "I'll be There" from the same album.
Some of my favorites are songs that I love hearing, it doesn't matter if they're sad or crazy or happy, they are songs that make my playlist. And they almost always give me a smile or 'feel good' feeling. Too many to list.

I've corresponded and chatted with a number of Americans who think the 9/11 Truth movement has been thoroughly "debunked." But when pressed for details on the source of their belief, they can't provide any. One gentleman said that he didn't have time to investigate such things. My big...
