The Importance of Singing about Good Things: The Sunny Side of the Street

Been thinking about the importance of optimism in the various fights we have in front of us. Feeling somewhat inundated by bad news worldwide, I decided I'd trying singing some sunny songs when I was out walking the other morning.

This song came to my mind immediately. It was on one of the first 33 1/3 records my parents bought, and I loved it. It comes out of bad times--written during the Great Depression, a hit during WWII--and it was a greata spirit-raiser. Try singing it these days when the headlines and the Twitter feed gets you down.
