Be free-floating, allowing the situation to surround you, and be in it. Take in the full surroundings, including the temperature of the water.

Music Monday! Don't Worry Be Happy

Always a good song for a cold, windy with bits of snow, March 5th.
It just so happens the movie, Cocktail, is on cable these days, and the boys like to watch and make fun of it.

And oh there is so much to make fun of. 
You just don't know how cheesy a movie is until over 20 years later.
For example:

Brian: I'm looking for the Manager.
Doug: What's the problem? Did you find a hair in your quiche?
Brian: No, I'm looking for a job.
Doug: Ah, you'd like to put a hair in somebody else's quiche.

Or this classic:
"I don't care how liberated this world becomes - a man will always be judged by the amount of alcohol he can consume - and a woman will be impressed, whether she likes it or not." ~Doug Coughlin

Back in 1988, I guess we all had Dreams and Cocktails, or was it Cocktails and Dreams?
No worries, this song makes everything better.

Here's to leaving SOME things in the 80's, like Cocktail......and KEEPING some of the GOOD things, like Bobby McFarrin's Don't Worry Be Happy. His talent earned him the honor of having the first a cappella song to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, a position it held for two weeks. Plus, all the voices in it are his own, no one else's.  A feat on it's own, but that it was number one in 1988, the decade of tacky hair bands, is even more impressive. 

It is a classic feel good song, and we all could use that, any decade, any day, 

and especially really nice to hear on a Monday!


  1. I love 80s music, best on the treadmill, and love love love this song. I need to sing it to myself more often! as to cocktails, I mixed myself a nice martini just the other night.

  2. Thanks for sharing that! That song has become my mantra these past few days....who am I kidding, past few Weeks!!!
