Description
I did this song in my first year here almost four years ago (one of my first) and it's what you might describe as a 'feel good' song; philosophy with a smile and as i said at the time of first posting "You WILL smile before the end of this song". Judging by the amount of downloads it received it's been one of my most popular songs, but it badly needed de-'S' ing, so I did my best with that and ran it through Ozone for a bit of a Mastering. I think it sounds much better for these cosmetics, though if i could have remembered which synths and what settings I used, I would have completely re-recorded it. I hope you like it enough to listen again....... to the end.

Lyrics
When life, is getting you down,
Put on a smile, throw 'way your frown.
You'll find, people can be so kind,
Let them see the Kindness in your smile.

Life, is like a road,
There's gonna be rough,
And there will be smooth,
Smile, and take it all in your stride,
Hold your head up high and just smile.

People will be drawn to you,
Show them all what you can do, to make the world a better place,
Soon they'll start to gather round,
Knowing that this Love they've found.
Is the very thing, that the world needs right now.

They say, Life is a stage,
We play a part,
So play it from the heart,
Soon, you'll find friends who feel the same,
So smile, and carry on with the 'game'.

Come together everyone,
Do your best to make life fun,
Try to brush away the tears and pain.
We come this way only once,
Keep on looking to the front,
Try to find that 'Highway full of Dreams'.

Life, ain't what it seems,
All that is Gold, don't always gleam,
A smile, can brighten any room,
That's all it needs to lift the gloom.

So smile,Turn on your light,
Make people happy,
'cause that's their right,
Try, to make the whole world see,
What can come. if we only smile,
It's for free,
Just smile, 'cause it's for free.

Hi Andrew..
well it's nice to have it described as 'bouncing' along, because someone described it as 'slip-slopping' along the last time i posted it; which was also a good description LOL.... nice that you found it uplifting, regards M

Yes Michael
the de essssing did work eventually, but it was quite a job to still keep a reasonable top end and get rid of the S's..... thank you for listening and comment, regards M

Maurice...
This should be on shelf as an alternative to prozac.
Just pop this with a splash of their favorite beverage - guaranteed pick-me-upper.
Cheers,

99th
Happy 99th song!
Can't wait for 100! If it's half as fun as this it will be a winner (re-posts count).
Such a breezy and cheery song Maurice.
I can imagine people dancing around to this. You know, proper dancing.
Good stuff
Moviz said 2191 days ago (March 30th, 2011)
Proper dancing....
Well I guess that would make this one a foxtrot, when I wore my dancing shoes LOL... I didn't realise it was my 99th song.... so i'd better get my skates on and think up something special for my next number Michael.... thank you for doing the count and for the kind words, cheers M

hi maurice. what a positive uplifting song. i'll have what he's smoking. love the harmony on section 3. reminds me of the everly bros....dream...was it the everly bros?
your lyrics are really good....could have been trite and cliched....but you nail them with assurance. loving the clip-clop sounds.....that pony's definitely had one too many. scary outro.....glad i wasn't on my own when listening...clown things freak me out.

Hi Julian
Thanks for calling in on this.... no, it wasn't the Everlys LOL Glad you liked the lyrics though, which really are true I suppose..... I like the synths too and wish I knew what thy were then I would have re-recorded with a better bass.... I don't usually like clowns, but I like this one with the teeth and the flower going to the rhythm LOL.... Yes I wanted to give a bit of a 'shock' at the end, Cheers M

Nice of you to call back and check.... very pleased you like it enough to DL.... by the way they are both Synth sounds in back and to me it has a sound a bit like a harmonica... maybe that's the one you mean, but I understand what you're saying. Thanks again, cheers M
