fly on the wall

I've realized that many of my favorite songs are sad. Even when I'm happy, I tend to listen to sad songs. This summer, when I've been quite impossibly happy and I am so even now, just before leaving, one song I've listened to over and over is "Bad Day" by Daniel Powter.

Cause you had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don't lie
You're coming back down and you really don't mind
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

Well you need a blue sky holiday
The point is they laugh at what you say
And I don't need no carryin' on

Sometimes the system goes on the blink
And the whole thing turns out wrong
You might not make it back and you know
That you could be well oh that strong
And I'm not wrong


I have had very few bad days this summer (although of course I have had some), but I love this song. I listen to it every day.

Just now I've had a series of very good days in a row.

I'm still listening to this song.

(Will this meeting never end?)
