On the whole, if listening to music doesn’t make you happy, you’re doing it wrong. That would seem to make this song a difficult choice, but in the end it was easy.
Excluding nearly every song that Half Man Half Biscuit — since they have day 25 to themselves — contenders included The Broken Family Band’s Happy Days Are Here Again, almost anything by Billie the Vision and the Dancers, especially Stuttering Duckling and One More Full Length Record and, despite its name, New Order’s wonderful Blue Monday.
My choice, however, is a song that’s featured here before:
Let’s see Vienna and Zürich in the snow
Let’s sail through Venice in a little two man boat
Let’s make like Bloom did and do Dublin in a day
Let’s go to Paris and be gay, babe.
