Day 244 or Good (Bad) Day

WARNING: The following post has a high probability of installing an ear bug that might require 12-18 hours for removal. So if you do not wish said ear installation, please stop reading now.

Okay, is everyone warned? What? You say that it is impossible to stop your eyes from dropping down and therefore, the ear bug has already in place. Oh. Well, sorry about that. But since the damage is done, you might as well come along for the ride.

Very few songs make me feel as happy as Daniel Powter's "Bad Day". Yes, I know that it is completely cheesy but my love for la musique de fromage has been demonstrated many times over, so we will just move along. There is irony in a song about a bad day making me so happy but the tune is very catchy. More than that for me, however, is that we have all had that day. The day when you look at your life and it feels like all the color has run out of it. The day when just standing in line for coffee is difficult. And on those days, you feel like you are the only one. And you're not! So as I am coming out of my funk, I am singing along. And I am wishing you a good day as I share... you guessed it, "Bad Day".

Where is the moment we needed the most
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost
They tell me your blue skies fade to gray
They tell me your passion's gone away
And I don't need no carryin' on

You stand in the line just to hit a new low
You're faking a smile with the coffee you go
You tell me your life's been way off line
You're falling to pieces every time
And I don't need no carryin' on

Because 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

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

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

(Oooh.. a holiday..)

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

(yeah...)

So where is the passion when you need it the most
Oh you and I
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost

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
You've seen what you like
And how does it feel for one more time
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

OK, so it might be cheesy and sticks in your head worse than any kid's TV show ditty, but I challenge anyone to deny (honestly) that it doesn't perk them up!!!

You have to force a smile on those days. It's very difficult, but it really does help to put you in a better mood.

If you didn't pay attention to the words, you would think that was a happy song.

I really like the tune to that song. It always makes me feel good to listen to it. I guess I never paid close attention to the words before. Great post. Have a great week-end!

I love this song. And now I will dream it tonight.

Yep, certainly one of those songs that, once heard, you can't help but sing/hum along to.
