Musical Monday

This is the last in our one-hit wonder month. I've had a lot of fun with this and will almost certainly revisit sometime in the future. Feel free to suggestions for other "themes" for the future. I've got an idea or two bubbling around (okay, one idea).

The last one is another sentimental favorite of mine. I had a chance to see Bobby McFerrin perform with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra when I was in college and it was absolutely stunning. He performed a stunning version of the Bach-Gounod Ave Maria. He sang the Bach prelude and the principal cellist performed the Gounod Ave Maria. It was one of the most beautiful performances I've ever heard.

But of course, that is not the song for which he is most famous. Instead, his primary source of recognition out in the world is for today's song. In 1988, he graced us with a song that is simultaneously horrible and fantastic. The first a cappella song to reach number 1 on the Billboard 100, Don't Worry, Be Happy seems to be one of those songs that everyone has heard at some point.

Personally, I think it's incredibly fun and I love to dance around my living room singing it. Which I'm going to go do right now. Have a great day!

Here's a little song I wrote 

You might want to sing it note for note 

Don't worry be happy 

In every life we have some trouble 

When you worry you make it double 

Don't worry, be happy...... 

Ain't got no place to lay your head 

Somebody came and took your bed 

Don't worry, be happy 

The land lord say your rent is late 

He may have to litigate 

Don't worry, be happy 

Look at me I am happy 

Don't worry, be happy 

Here I give you my phone number 

When you worry call me 

I make you happy 

Don't worry, be happy

Ain't got no cash, ain't got no style 

Ain't got not girl to make you smile 

But don't worry be happy 

Cause when you worry 

Your face will frown 

And that will bring everybody down 

So don't worry, be happy (now)..... 

There is this little song I wrote 

I hope you learn it note for note 

Like good little children 

Don't worry, be happy 

Listen to what I say 

In your life expect some trouble 

But when you worry 

You make it double 

Don't worry, be happy...... 

Don't worry don't do it, be happy 

Put a smile on your face 

Don't bring everybody down like this 

Don't worry, it will soon past 

Whatever it is 

Don't worry, be happy
