So my song of choice is "Makes Me Happy" by Matt White Band. This isn't necessarily my favorite song, and not my favorite artist either. But, it is a song that has stood out to me and my go to song for almost any mood. It can brighten up a bad mood, or make a good mood even easier to express. Sounds a little corny but I like it.
Overall the lyrics are sung by a man who is falling in love with a woman. Throughout the song he talks about the little things that make him happy when he's with the woman. For example, a line that is repeated throughout the song is "One of those days, one of those moments, you just, make me happy." To me is shows the simplicity of being happy. How little things can brighten your day or make you smile. To me it's also not just limited to that "special someone" or being in love. It can be any little thing that makes everything in life seem okay.
Besides the lyrics, the melody is upbeat and catchy. This makes the song one of those that gets stuck in your head, but in a good way. At least for me. When listening to "Makes Me Happy," several images come to mind such as anything that made me happy throughout the day, or just recently. You also can't help but think of the "good ol days" and happy memories of your past considering the song talks about inspiration and being happy. Again, this may sound lame but it always puts me in a good mood or adds to my good moods.
