Yup! I sing it all the time. I share it with a very Dearest Best Friend too. It is a camp song learned in scouting at a summer camp in W.VA. It is easily learned:
Oh way up in the sky, the little bird flies, good morning, good morning, the little bird says . . .
I loved singing that a ways back. Walking up to the morning of workers readying for the day the 'b****' session would begin. And, then I would sing that song. Grin. And, then everyone would have a good laugh.
The cool part is we learned it as a tune then. Yet, I have heard it sung more ways than the sun shines . . .
oh way up in the sky the little birds fly while down in the nest the little birds rest Shhh... their sleeping. The BRIGHT sun comes up and dew falls all down Good Morning, Good Morning the little birds SHOUT!
Ooh Child (Things are Gonna Get Easier) - The Five Stairsteps. I don't know if it lifts my spirits but it's one of those songs that has always made me feel that no matter how dark a period in life feels; there will be better days to come. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrotsEzgEpg
Puffin' Biilly, an instrumental about a train, by British composer Edward White. It is the theme song from the Captain Kangaroo TV series from 1955 - 1974. Mary Rodgers wrote lyrics for the song after that, but I still like the original.
Smile written by Charlie Chaplin. Check YouTube the version by Glee Cast, also NicoleCountry Glee has a great version, although the Michael Jackson and of course Nat King Cole are the classic versions.
Charlie Chaplin was exiled from the United States. IF I remember he wrote the lyrics while he was exiled.
Ironic and important history and the song still gives me chills.
I like Michael Jackson's voice the best of all. Perhaps even more than my personal favorite voice Josh Groban.
Domino - Jessie J - awesome to listen to up loud, and interesting to note when she is singing "I'm feeling sexy and free" - she was sitting with her foot propped up after breaking her ankle, recording the song not feeling sexy or free - but you'd never guess.
Man in the Mirror - Michael Jackson
And just recently - Same Love by Macklemore + Ryan Lewis (feat Mary Lambert) - if you haven't heard it - you need to.
"You really where start (you really know where to start) Fixing a broken heart You really know what to do Your emotional tools Can cure any fool Whose dreams have fallen apart? Fixing a broken heart.."
----- I don't know but when I hear it, all I can think of is God... and how He always fixes my broken heart ( and it makes me feel sooooooooo goooood!!! ^^)
That's the one I picked! (I've Had) The Time of My Life by Jennifer Warnes. I've seen the movie dozens of times. A special needs person I know watched it over and over again. I know "Dirty Dancing" by heart LoL. )
"Up Up And Away" always reminds me of when I was young and free in the 60's and took off in a big jet to move to LA. That song was playing on the plane and continued to play everywhere for a long time because it was so popular. I smile every time I hear it!
Being a Christian, I love Contemporary Gospel music, and the one song that I love everytime I hear it that stirs in my Spirit is "Word Of God Speak" by Casting Crowns. I can't help but join in singing, and I am flooded with joyous praise for our Lord and Savior when I hear and sing this song.
Can you think of a song that always moves you no matter how many times you hear it?I only ask as I have been listening to 'Friend of Ours' by Elbow; a very simple and beautiful song which always makes me feel melancholy...
I have done 5 surveys and everyone says that they think 3 is average but then I find out that the real average is twice a month. So if you can answer the question that would be great, not how much you think but...
