30 Day Music Challenge: Day Twenty-One

Day 21: A Song That You Listen To When You're Happy

This is in some ways the easiest question to answer - I'm quite a happy person most of the time really. I may moan occasionally and I'm quite good at feeling sorry for myself but generally I'd describe myself as an optimist! And an over-enthusiastic user of exclamation marks... Mind you I've not got much to be unhappy about - I've got a job I love (most of the time), fabulous friends scattered all over the place and a massive, crazy family whom I love very much. In many ways the past couple of years have been the best of my life - I got out of a relationship that wasn't doing me much good towards the end of 2008 and  whilst at the time I was heartbroken it also gave me the impetus to really change my life, make new friends, do new things and so on. I've also spent a lot of time listening to different types of music - mostly recommended by my wonderful twitter family - and going to completely random gigs. So the past few years have been what a dodgy reality tv show would probably call a "journey" - whatever, it's been lots of fun. 

However this post is about songs you listen to when you're happy so enough of my self-indulgent waffling... Despite a fair bit of sadness the past couple of months have been among the happiest in my life - if that isn't a complete paradox! There's one person I have to thank for that - and I also have to thank him for introducing me to this band because they're amazing. The first time I heard this album I literally started bouncing around the kitchen! So currently my happy place is Spaceship by Alice in Videoland. I'm off to dance about the kitchen, kiss my boyfriend and enjoy the weekend - see you later alligators! 

"Wanna take a ride on my motor bike,
Wanna take a trip in, my space ship,
Wanna take a ride on my motor bike,
Wanna take a trip in, my space ship,

On the way to the moon, in a giant balloon,
Better hurry up, we're steering back to earth soon,
Want to know what I think, is you painted with pink,
A mean imagination and a shit load of ink,
I'm not gonna lie, I really like to get high,
Everything is possible, the limit's the sky,
I'm not gonna lie, I really like to get high,
Everything is possible, the limit's the sky

Wanna, wanna,
Wanna take a ride on my motor bike,
Wanna take a trip in, my space ship,
Wanna take a ride on my motor bike,
Wanna take a trip in, my space ship,
Wanna take a trip in, my space ship,
Wanna take a trip in, my space ship"
