KillgoreTrout On December - 1 - 2012

This week’s music thread is about songs that make you smile, chuckle or laugh out loud. They say laughter is the best medicine, but after the election, we don’t really need the medicine. Now that business is back to usual in DC, a laugh or two certainly wouldn’t hurt.

So, pick the songs that make you smile, songs about anything that gives you a laugh. Songs about happiness. Songs with the words smile, or laugh or laughter in the title or lyrics, or just songs that make you feel good.

Once a wander, working vagabond, fellow traveler on this 3rd stone from the sun. Hurtling through space and time. Lover of books (especially the classics), all kinds of books from novels, poetry, essay collections, fiction and nonfiction and a big Kurt Vonnegut fan. I am a secular humanist and technically an atheist.....Taoist.

      …and on mine! Just to think -- I lived in Seattle for a decade, and I have never once heard that ditty. BTW: The “spermterpator” was absolutely hysterical!

      Thanks, KQ. Just woke up and found this gem. Now there’s a smile on my face, too!
