Happy Music

Dear Optimists,

Do you ever listen to music to make a happy moment even better?

I do.

I loooooove music. My favorite happy music is definitely Belle and Sebastian. When I’m driving to work and don’t necessarily want to go, I blast some B&S and it puts me right in the best mood ever. I hope everyone out there has a band like that. I once went on a trip all the way across country just to see them play for the first time. It was absolutely worth it.

Who is your happy band?



P.S. I am LOVING the optimist version of a B&S album covers Nadia made…

More often than not, people wonder what I'm up to. I'm a people watcher, and love to tell a stranger's story, as I see it. If you see me reading or writing in a coffee shop, there's a good chance I'm making up a story about you at that moment. I'm a visual person who loves finding inspiration in my surroundings, and believe that sometimes the smallest detail can tell the majority of the story, if you have the sense to recognize it.

  1. I think it is the first time I read about someone who listen to B&S and feels happy! Cool!

    I too listen to some “weird” music when I’m happy! Or when I NEED to improve my mood… it works…


    1. B&S is totally poppy and happy! Hahaha. Some of the songs, anyway 🙂 but either way they bring back great memories and the music is my favorite!

      1. There are many worse songs to get stuck in your head! And to be honest it’s been stuck in my head since I typed it 😉

  2. I have not heard of B&S so I suppose I will have to look into that. My happy music is a Colombian singer named Carlos Vives. He puts an extra boost into my step when I need it. Makes me feel like I’m smack dab in the middle of a backyard party in Colombia.

  3. Another Sunny Day by Belle and Sebastian just makes me feel like I’m floating on air for some reason… 🙂 it’s amazing how music can change my mood!

  4. I’ve only heard a couple of B&S songs, but I totally see how they can be your happy music. Their songs are so cute and positive!

    My happy music is this band called The Dozen Dimes. Not sure if they are active anymore, but their album is so far from serious and it always just brightens my day. Plus they wear these really stylish suits, it’s irresistible!

    1. I’ve never been a big classic music fan…maybe I should try again now! As for kids songs, you should check out Kimya Dawson’s kid’s CD…it’s cute and hilarious.
