I celebrate music. Smile is my one little word for the year. When I am down, lonely, stressed or otherwise not feeling super, music can put a smile right back on my face. Here are some of the songs that can lift me up.
I have the German version of Wicked. I listened to it over and over again before my first visit to Germany. It helped refresh my high school German lessons. At this point, I may know the German lyrics better than the English ones. I came to admire this Elphaba. Willemijn Verkaik is amazing in any language and between her and the song it would be impossible not to smile.
Sometimes a little Bollywood is the perfect smile inducer. If that doesn't work,
I can always try a little K-Pop
If all else fails, I can listen to one of the amusing songs from Hamilton.
Or I can even share a fun song with my students from Putumayo
Do you have songs that make you smile? If so, let me know what they are so I can add to my playlist for those moments I need a lift. Thanks!
