Sing and the Whole World Sings with You

Today’s a good day for turning up the tunes. Know how I know? ’Cause every day is music day. Don’t you just love the smell of sixteenth notes in the morning?

Back in January, I posted about inspirational quotes from well-known names like Martin Luther King, Jr., Mohandas Gandhi and Nelson Mandela.

More lately I’ve been thinking about songs that inspire kindness, compassion and a general wellwishing for other living creatures.

Well, it’s hard to compare the likes of the Dalai Lama to Three Dog Night – it’s like comparing apples to orangutans – but do I think some song lyrics can be just as uplifting as those wise old sayings.

Today I’m posting just a few of my musical picks. But in the spirit of Fun Friday, I’m not divulging the titles – you have to click the links to find them out!

I’d love to know what songs make you feel like hugging your friends, helping your neighbours, spreading the joy, picking up litter. Feel free to share!

  2. Jimmy Durante sings Make Someone Happy.

  3. Love it! Thanks, Mary!

  4. Good Monring, Lisa! This instrumental by Leonard Cohen stops me in by crazy-busy tracks and takes me ‘somewhere else’ every time. A momentary mental exit that is pure happiness … borderline bliss. Get comfy and check out this visual depiction of “Tacoma Trailer” Seaottersoup created by seaottersoup at

  5. Thank you for the escape hatch, Cheryl. A very good thing to have sometimes.
