"a song that makes you feel happy"
can a song do that? really? these days? those opening thinking of you chords maybe or i want you back but then i want you back is desperate sad like when the bottle used to blow up a dance floor hell when it blew up 99p soul a while back and you can't wipe off a smile no matter how hard you try. like how it's always atrocious when some faker sings a heartbreaker with a stupid camera smirk. oh johnnie ray johnnie ray. and i believe in miracles all of i believe in miracles every blast. then joyce's ba dada bada ba da ayyy oh la can't not never nudge me to brightness not never not ever. but then the majesty of the saddest records in the world make you all privileged to be alive to hear them they raise you up watertown and in the wee small hours and a man alone and all those vast mostly chunks of our record piles but still that ba dada bada ba da ayyy oh la...
joyce - aldeia de ogum

I was half expecting you to keep the Jimmy Webbs coming with Up Up And Away.
I think I Want You Back is a different beast from The Bottle. We know that Michael Jackson has never had the experience that the lyrics describe because he's an 11 year old boy. So we can just fill our ears up with that explosion of pure joy, and love the sound of him singing his heart out, without having to worry about him breaking his actual heart. (That came later. Ours too.) Whereas GSH knew what he was singing about...
Some of the tunes that make me happiest aren't really even songs. Like U-Roy's gleeful babbling over Chalice In The Palace. Or the theme in John Coltrane's 'Moment's Notice'.
Oh yes, yes, yes and yes.
now THAT is a sound and a half,I consider myself educated!
...Joyce's babadas still going round my head after I've just played it. They're going to be stuck there all day, aren't they?
oh yes indeed... and a whole lot longer than a day
Sorry, I've not been keeping up - but I love this, love it.
