Random Happy Music Post

So one of my favorite things to do when I am a little bit blue is to crank up some loud music and dance around like a total goober. Or, if I am in the car, sing at the top of my lungs until my throat gets sore. Thus, this post is a little roundup of happy-making clips, mainly comprised of the music I can't hold still to. I can't embed this one, so click the link, watch the video, and I promise you will want to shake your booty.

Sting was not only mad hot back in the 80's (even though the sequin outfit is a bit Ziggy Stardust), this song is SO catchy!

Try not to groove to the Pretenders' newest single"

I dare you to not sing along. Freddie Mercury's beautiful voice and such a corny, catchy song with all that heavy harmony and that big fat fuzzy tone of Brian May's red special (who, incidentally, just finished a Ph.D in astrophysics that he had put on hold 30 years ago so he could go play with some band. Brian May did, that is, not the red special)

Another un-embeddable but ridiculously catchy song, I have developed an adoration for this band ever since I heard them on the new Doctor Who tv show (yes I am a nerd) and this is another one I will dance around to in my underwear and sing at the top of my lungs when there is nobody around ;) and yes, the video is nuts.

And I have to say, I have a soft spot for this Supertramp song - that triumphant modulation at the end is so satisfying (yes I am a music nerd).

An insanely cool band with quite possibly the grooviest baritone player I have ever heard. You may have caught this over the Borat end credits, if you sat through the whole thing, it was the best part of the movie by far. This is Balkan Beat Box:

Cake with line dancing. I love Cake so much. (And it's low-calorie!)

Sesame Street with and without guest stars:

So put on your favorite underwear, turn up the volume, and DANCE!
