Good Day Sunshine!

When life is feeling a little flat, and you are in need of something colourful to lift your mood, yellow is the colour to do it, I’d say. Flowers and sunshine. The freshest pineapple and mango fruit salad.  The impossible cuteness of a fluffy duckling.  The beyond comical expression on a tiny yellow spotted boxfish?

What more can I say? Yellow is just a happy colour.  Or perhaps I am just in a happy mood, having just done a very yellow post previous to this one?  If colour can lead to infectious happiness, I am very happy with that!

The flowers (and the sunshine!) are long gone, as these are snaps from a glorious English summer, but I find them uplifting nonetheless.

And then of course the lyrical mastery of The Beatles springs to mind.  The jolly, happy sing-a-long that is unavoidable with ‘Yellow Submarine’, naturally!  But even better than that, ‘Good Day Sunshine’.  It is my ultimate feel good song, and a welcome soundtrack to my Friday evening. Colourful in essence, even if not name:

Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine

I need to laugh, and when the sun is out
I’ve got something I can laugh about
I feel good, in a special way
I’m in love and it’s a sunny day

Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine

We take a walk, the sun is shining down
Burns my feet as they touch the ground

Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine

Then we lie beneath a shady tree
I love her and she’s loving me
She feels good, she know she’s looking fine
I’m so proud to know that she is mine

Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine

Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine

Good day sunshine
(Good day sunshine)
Good day sunshine
(Good day sunshine).

(Good Day Sunshine, Revolver album, written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney).

I’ll leave you with those happy, colourful, sunshiny thoughts.  HAPPY FRIDAY!

      Thanks Cathy, yes I agree! Although I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that retail therapy also has strong powers to make me happy!! 🙂
