C'mon Get Happy or Suggestions Please
So, as you can imagine, I love happy music, or even music that just makes me happy even when every little part of the lyric isn't necessarily cheerful. For example: Sarah Vaughan singing It Was Just One of Those Things or Naked Eyes singing Always Something There to Remind Me or Blossom Dearie singing anything.
But here is my problem: for a music-lover, I tend to dwell in the past, listening to jazz standards or songs from the 80s. If it's more current, it's probably from a Disney or Pixar film. *
So, can you help at all? What are some current artists (independent is even better!) that create music that makes you happy?
*This is a slight exaggeration, by the way. I have listened to some Jason Mraz and some Pink Martini and some CéU and some Emily Loizeau and some Rupa and the April Fishes and such, but I do feel like my music player could use some new life breathed into it!
