A happy song by Village People

It was more difficult to choose a happy song because there are many songs that can make you feel better or happier due to its fast rhythm or they simply told you that you must forget your problems. There are millions songs like this, for example “Garden of Eden” performed by Guns & Roses or “Sitting in the dock of the bay” by Otis Redding. However, there are only a few songs that really make you laugh so I finally decided that a funny video clip would be the best choice. In fact, this video has a curious story. It was performed by Village People, who likes dressing up in their performances as you know, and was shot with the help of the United States Navy which used the song in promotional advertising until people protested arguing that using taxpayer money for a music video of a controversial group was not ethical.

A sad song from Casablanca

A sad song and a happy song… It’s a difficult choice because the lyrics have to be in English. It would be easier with Spanish songs because, to be honest, I can’t understand the lyrics of most English songs unless I can read them. Finally I decided choose music from movies because it’s easy to associate a sad scene and a happy scene with their soundtracks.
For instance in Casablanca, Ingrid Bergman is remembering the happy days they lived in Paris before going to Morocco that seem have been lost forever whereas the pianist is playing and singing “As time goes by”.
