That post about Baby Elephant Walk got me thinking. Music without lyrics can make you feel many different moods. But, I don't know too many instrumentals that make you feel happy. The closest I can come to that, is a french song that I have no idea what it means because I don't speak French. It's "Toune d'Automne" by Les Cowboys Fringants. Even tho it's not an instrumental, the lyrics are irrlevent because they mean nothing to me. And yet, it still makes me somewhat happy.

Great song.

How about Another Saturday Night (and I ain't got nobody. I got some money cause I just got paid. Oh, how I need someone to talk to. I'm in an awful way.)

What's his name now? Jusef Islam?

This one has an undertone of sadness, but everything turns out okay. I just can't help but like it.

Land of Make Believe ===== Chuck Mangione with the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra, live recording in Toronto featuring Esther Satterfield on vocals.  If only we could listen to this and just make believe.
