As a bit of a disappointing prospect that took a bit of a detour in early adulthood, I'll be simply ecstatic when I finally hear that little Elgar march play for me.

Until then, it's just Elgar.

For those of us whose happiness is connected to chemical stimulation, perhaps Bach's Coffee cantata would be appropriate.

I don't ordinarily like happy music; I can't believe it. I was a grumpy old man before I hit adolescence.

But the playful part of Smetana's Moldau is ok with me. As long as it's not too sunny outside.

Happiness? What's that?
Happiness is vacuuming the entire place clean. What else are you going to do when it's foggy all day long? ;) I didn't hear any music until around suppertime, though, but I'm making up for it.

There is so much happiness music! Aside from Ode to Joy, which I knew would get the playlist started ;) I think these are very happy:

Ligeti Piano Concerto
Prokofiev Piano Concerto 2
Bartók Rhapsodies 1 & 2

I'm sobering up after an uncharacteristically heavy session on the ale. I'm now listening to Shostakovich's Viola Sonata just to remind me what a lucky fellow I am.
