Tag Archives: The Very Best

Day 21

Today’s song is one that makes me happy. The Very Best’s music never fails to put me in a sunny mood. The song is “Warm Heart of Africa” from their album of the same name and it features Ezra Koenig. The song makes me instantly happy just as the video does. It pairs the singer from TVB, Esau Mwamwaya, with Ezra and they sing, dance, and just generally look like they’re having a delightful time. Esau has about the most infectious smile I’ve ever seen, and Ezra’s dancing is probably the most adorably awkward I’ve ever seen. It works, but I am pretty tickled that they didn’t give Ezra back up dancers like they gave Esau. At any rate, the song is bubbly and the video makes me giggle a lot. In other words it all makes me happy.

Oh, and there’s a dancing giraffe. Watch it here.

Desperately trying to banish the late winter grays

Typical Rochester weather today, temperatures rise for what seems like the first time in centuries, but the rain moves in. I’m pretty sure if someone cared to measure it, they would find that the Rochester sky stays cloudy and grey for ninety five percent of the year or something approximate. This can make it extremely difficult to avoid lethargy and the general blahs.

Today, this is how I have been combating the slump. I know this is kind of old (2009 oh my gosh!), but I’m on a big The Very Best kick right now. Their music is upbeat and sounds like it was made where the sun actually exists, so it’s keeping me peppy. Anyway, for anyone else dealing with the winter grays, watch this video via Youtube. It will make you smile and might even make you want to move around. I wish I could dance like those kids, though.
