Mrs. German often comments on the rather depressing tone of the songs I play. I can’t argue. Chirpy happy songs just don’t resonate with me. I’m not a totally miserable guy (I don’t think), but I can’t deny that I have a tendency to songs about unhappiness. Maybe it’s because my roots are in ‘20s/‘30s blues and jazz, and folk music with all its fabulous murder ballads. Anyway, she was bugging me with the “don’t you know any happy songs” thing the other day, and I hit her with this one. It’s unrelentingly happy in its lyrics, but two minor chords keep it from ever having a chirpy feel to it. Any other examples?
