30 Day Music Meme - the kick-off

Gakked from enigmaticblues, pfeifferpack and shipperx, a meme that serves the dual purpose of masking my writer's block and keeping me occupied trying to find the best video!

Day 01- A song that makes you happy.

A nice and easy one to begin with. Although there are many songs that may fit the bill, one springs to mind immediately: Everybody Wants To Rule The World by Tears for Fears. I absolutely adore that song, even though its meaning, according to Curt Smith, is quite serious - about everybody wanting power, about war and misery and the usual doom and gloom of 80-s pop music...but it's not that I respond to. Whatever my mood, wherever I am or whatever I might be doing, I only have to hear the opening riff or first few notes even and I drop everything, turn the music up louder, and begin to do that dance shown in the video by the two guys at the petrol pump. However, I've chosen to incorporate another video in this post: Tears for Fears, live on stage with an orchestra behind them...and the music is as fresh and infectious as when I heard it for the first time in 1985, when I put my newly purchased Songs From The Big Chair on my turntable, and fell in love.
