Ahh to many to choose- but, Carole King's "You've got to get up every morning with a smile on your face and show the world all the love in your heart" is one of my favorite memory provoking songs. When it was time for my kids to wake up for school I would sing it at the top of my lungs in the hallway between their bedrooms.When I would here the groans and the MOMs coming from the bedrooms I knew my job was done!!! I have often heard them sing it to friends when they were in a bad mood. My (surviving) kids are 24 years old and 21 years old and they still sing that song to cheer someone up from time to time.Love and energy, Vicki

I have a knack for making up silly songs spur of the moment - usually first thing in the morning , contrary to popular belief - NOT after 3 glasses of wine - and those songs are the ones that go through mi cabeza loca and cheer me up... they usually have an oompa-oompa thing going on and are usually about one of my dogs or my best friend/roommate...

That's great BT! Cherish that! It's things like that, that make you smile when you think of your childhood. Good for your mom for making a lasting memory like that!!

I think you need to capture one of these for YouTube! I would love to hear one.

BuckyTom; Every time I hear You Are My Sunshine, I almost cry... I'm not very sappy, but there's something so pure and genuine about that tune... and I remember teaching my sister's god-child (then two years old) to sing it... "You are my ton tine... you make me happy, when skies are bray..." Thanks for reminding me...

Yesterday, I heard Dr. Hook's "When You're in Love with a Beautiful Woman." Hadn't heard it in years and smiled for the whole song
