Rembrandts "Just The Way It Is, Baby". TEN times better than their annyoing "Friends" theme song.

"It's A Shame" by the Spinners. Always reminds me of summer, the beach, driving around with my friends and listening to the radio, and not having a care in the world.

It was for me. I was well below draft age, we didn't have a television, or get a daily newspaper. The war had zero impact on my life, so yeah, it was a simpler, happier time.

My grocery store must play the same songs over and over on a loop because it seems like every other time I go in there I end up hearing this song. It always makes me feel good - and consequently I probably buy more shit which I'm sure is the intent.

It's on YouTube by the way.....her version of "Over The Rainbow" always brings a tear to my eye.

The best song that Hall & Oates have ever done is, in my opinion, "Possession Obsession". Always picked me up way back int eh mid 80's when it came out. Video was decades ahead of its time in the depiction (albeit brief) of a gay couple showing affection in the back of an NYC taxi. Also loved the cameo by then supermodel Ariane Koizumi and the socialite giving a flirtatious look back at John oates after almost being hit by his cab.

Bump for one-hit wonder Cyndi Grecco. She spent two weeks at No. 25 on the chart in July 1976 with the song "Making Our Dreams Come True", better known as the theme song of the TV series Laverne and Shirley.

When it comes to the genre of frothy, fun, meaningless ear candy, the genius of "Sugar, Sugar" is obvious.
I give Madonna's "Hard Candy" my highest compliment: portions of it remind me of "Sugar,Sugar."

A current song that makes me happy is Grouplove's "Tongue Tied."
But the attached homemade video features a faster version of the song which makes me smile. Now I don't care of the normal version as much.
