Don’t Worry Be Happy

The day was gray, the weather the pits and I had to go pay a bill.  Not exactly the most exciting or happy things to focus on.  But, life has commitments and little surprises too.  Then while driving, I heard the song “Don’t Worry Be Happy”  by Bobby McFerrin.     I am serious- it is the best song for elevating a mood.   I am dead serious!   I was tapping my fingers to the tune and singing along. I am certain the other drivers saw me as crazy!

My friends who are radio broadcasters, or musicians might say it is a very, simple song.   Admittedly,  it is not Mozart BUT released in September 1988, it was a BillBoard 100 Hit.  At the  1989 Grammy Awards, “Don’t Worry Be Happy” won the awards for Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Performance.

I know you can’t resist — Join me… Don’t Worry, Be Happy!

Well soon after finishing my chores , I came home and YouTubed the song.   My son Brennen came into my room and burst into a big  smile.  “Hey mom, you o.k. ?”  He laughed, we laughed!  Such a precious moment!

A simple song, a simple concept that can change a simple day.
