Smile Power Songs

A belated musical posting from classes last week!  In addition to selections from Aya and Radical Sabbatical, we played with some smile-centered tunes (as a bonus, some links for your listening pleasure):

Jackie Wilson Said (I’m in Heaven When You Smile)           2:59       Van Morrison — Never knew the words to this one!

Happy  3:43      Martin Sexton —  (this is another live version – I like it even though it doesn’t have the “trumpet” solo which I enjoyed rockin out to all week)

Interlude           2:07       Attack Attack!    — Need I say more?  I think not.

Sweet Child o’ Mine (Rick Rubin…)                3:56      Sheryl Crow — The choreography of this one underscores the infectious power of a smile!

Subterranean Homesick Blues            2:17        Michael Franti — Oh.  How I love this.

Here Comes The Sun 3:05      The Beatles — A classic smile-generator!

When You’re Smiling (The Whole World Smiles With You)            4:03      Louis Armstrong — This original is surprisingly lazy, slow – and good.

Sara Smile        3:47      Jimmy Wayne — not that Hall & Oates needed any improvements but I love this countrified version!

Tell me, dear readers, do you prefer this kind of musical post (selections with links) or the full playlists?  I’d love to know! Dance on.
