Listening to: Solsbury Hill – Peter Gabriel

As of yesterday, this is the song that wakes me up in the morning, now set as my alarm.  This makes me happy indeed, as this song’s always brought a smile to my face.

Cheesy, I know. But I’m up with a little more bounce in my step this morning (and a whole hour earlier), so who’s complaining?

Why does it make me so cheerful?  Well, I suppose the tune in itself lends itself to that… and I do love a song I can (albeit sometimes quite terribly) sing along to.  Perhaps there’s also a bit of an association to moments in one of my all-time favourites, Vanilla Sky (note to self: I need to watch this film again soon!).

Or maybe because it can make even The Shining into a friendly family film:

Happy listening!  I’ll post more happy songs (and perhaps some not-so-happy songs) around here as I go on.
