    It;s called bubblegum pop and you’d rather French kiss a light socket.

    Um, I might not enjoy her music as much as The Beatles, but I’d love to just get by with Katie Perry…

    There is a truth here though. Happy music is considered childish or silly. Actors can have a ball and win an award playing a handicapped person. Who can play a normal person well? It’s a lot harder to make it real….

    Will Goat be successful in tuning him out? Doubtful.

    You people are nuts. Rat is a genius.

    @ Varnes: There’s no such thing as an average person.

    Rat’s logic is faulty. The music called The Blues makes us happy that we’re not sad like the poor schlub in the song’s story….

    Obviously, Rat has never heard any kiddie songs. They’re so “happy” they can drive you out of your mind in fifteen minutes.

    Obviously, Rat has never suffered.

    I’m going to sing “The Just Getting By’s.”

    Here’s food for thought. How sicky sweet do you think a type of music called the Happies wound be. And who would say “I feel like singing the Happies.”


    On the flip side maybe we do have a musical genre called the Happies and every song has to have the word happy in the title and the refrain. Chicago had “Happy Man” back in ‘74. Bobby McFerrin was telling us in ’88 to "Don’t Worry, Be Happy." The Turtles were “Happy Together” in ‘67. Going all the way back to ’29 you’ve got “Happy Days are Here Again.” The TV series “Happy Days” may have started with “Rock Around the Clock” but it changed it’s theme to…. “Happy Days.” Gotta be hundreds of songs with Happy in both the title and the refrain.

    If Rat started off the day viewing gocomics he wouldn’t have the blues.

    Wouldn’t an example of the “Happies” be;
    “It’s A Small World After All!”??
    On second thought, Rat is RIGHT!

    (Now try to get that damn song out of your head for the rest of the day!) Heh-heh!
