Some Saturday Happy Music

I have been posting about some songs on my Happy Playlist, music that is guaranteed to life my mood and make me feel happier.

I have two songs for you today that probably fit in the Pop Country genre….

The first one is probably more suitable for a Weekday but I love playing it first thing on a Saturday morning because if gives me lots of energy to do the stuff that I want to do and it reminds me that I don’t have to go to work.

Dolly Parton: 9 to 5. What a great upbeat song, which is strange when you think about the lyrics. I think there is something so wonderfully happy about Dolly herself. She is such a positive force.

And the second piece of music was something that I didn’t really know that well until a few years back it was used for an advert in the UK and I fell in love with the song. It always makes me feel positive and awakened to a world of possibility.


The Bellamy Brothers – Let your love flow. Such a great song.

Well whatever your plans for today. I hope you have a great Weekend.





Moongazing – A Multiple word prompt poem


I looked up at the moon

A golf ball in the sky

So brightly it shone above

I just lay there and wondered why

Is it an arrangement with the sun?

Have they agreed to share the light?

Or a possibility, that one

Defeated the other in a fight.

Did one placate the other

By staying so far apart?

Or agree to work together

In a celestial creative art.

One shining bright the other serene

And together making nature

A verdant splash of green.

As I lay on my mattress

Looking up at the bright moon,

Feeling its silvery caress

I pray for slumber, soon.

When I was younger, I was told that I could be anything I wanted to be, if I worked hard enough at it. That was all very nice, it’s always nicer to be encouraged than talked down, but it was a lie all the same. At least, that I what I had come to believe. 

I had worked hard at school. I busied away like a busy honey bee and I managed to get good marks on my exams. In this dystopian society I lived in, I still couldn’t get a decent job. All the jobs went to those people dedicated to the Party in power. The friends of the great leader. The system was so corrupt but it would surely crumble eventually because the best people were overlooked in favour of the party faithful regardless of their ability.
