I love this catchy song. It is especially suitable for the starting of a new day for me. I change the lyrics like this: "I gotta feeling. That's TODAY's gonna be a good DAY!" It is really uplifting.

I LOVE the lyrics of this song. It reminds me of eating graham crackers and drinking peppermint tea in my friend's backyard play house when we were six. I remember feeling so big. Like a real lady, having real tea at a fancy, grown up table. The singer's voice is also really beautiful and pure.

Here's a link to a song that has caught my ear the past few weeks (it's actually from Sweden...and about a year old, but I think it's catchy and Swedish speakers will recognize the cool accent the singer has ;D).
Brooke Fraser - Shadowfeet
This song is about two lovers separated after one dies. They are speaking to each other about the fact that it can never be.
I loved this song years ago, but after Hussein died, I listened to it from a different point of view. I felt helpless and alone, but I also felt hopeful, and I wanted to say these words to him when I visited his grave (I have never visited his grave).
Here's the chorus:in English (it's hard to translate from French to English but this is close)
don't feel regret
just trust me and think
about all those "no way"
about the indifference of feelings
don't feel regret
swear it for me
because you know
that autumn and winter just can't love each other
Chris Tomlin - Amazing Love
My favorite thing about this song is that it is a great reminder to me that no matter how many mistakes and failures I have, Jesus will accept me and love me!
Adele - Chasing Pavements (Live acoustic)
