There is a light that never goes out

News from Monaco

Today we'll be cheering ourselves up with music. I've put together a list of tunes that always make me feel happy. Obviously, being a bit of an old fogey my choices are not currently in the "hit parade".

  • The Smiths, There is a Light That Never Goes Out - in their heyday, The Smiths were accused by many of being miserable. The detractors were wrong.
  • The Police, Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic - never fails to get me on the dance floor.
  • General Elektriks, Tu m'intrigues - I first heard this at 2004 Nice Jazz Festival. Watch the video below.
  • Ray Foxx feat. Rachel K Collier, Boom Boom (Heartbeat) - a catchy tune. The video tells the story of a holiday romance.
  • Handel, the Hallelujah Chorus from The Messiah - always feel uplifted at the end of this.
Hope these help lift your spirits.
