Day 03 – A Song that makes you Happy

Posted in 30 Day Song Challenge, Uncategorized on June 21, 2014 by Sara Hammerzmith

This one had me thinking for a little while. I’m sitting here playing with my chips, learning a few new tricks, being irritated at the moment and trying to figure out what song makes me happy.

A lot of songs makes me happy. But what song is that one song that just… do THAT you know? After a few if’s and but’s, and a Olly Murs CD spinning in the background, it was settled.

Dance With Me Tonight by british artist Olly Murs. This was a song I chased for so long, as I heard it the first time in one of Disney’s “Re-Micks” where they use old Mickey Mouse clips and put it together with a song. I remember how much I loved hearing this song come on, and how much I wanted to find it and the artist. I used TrackID on my phone, without any hits.

A few months later, I realized I could try searching for “Dance with me tonight remicks” on youtube, said and done, and I found the song and the artist. And I’m so glad I did. Introducing Olly Murs in my life is probably one of the best things I have ever done, and the concert I saw with him last year is still one of my most prized one.

To return to the point of the entry, this song ALWAYS, regardless what has happened, cheers me up. If I’m sad, or if I’m happy, yeah, you get it. The song makes me wanna dance, it makes me wanna love, it makes me wanna play, it literally brings me alive like crazy.

There are a lot of songs out there that makes me happy. But not like this one. I have no bad memories to this song, no guilt feelings, nothing.

Olly Murs in my heart.

Today is a national holiday in Sweden, called Midsommar. Remember the floral thing in the beginning of Elsas coronation in Frozen? That’s a midsommarstång. OH. This reminds me, I was to write about it on the Frozenpage… Ok, nevermind.

I don’t really celebrate Midsommar. I guess we have some sort of dinner, but it’s no more than that. Of course, what WOULD be epic would be if I managed to gather all my metal and Lordipeople together – but summer is a difficult time. You know, festivals, festivals and MORE festivals. And I don’t complain to be honest! But yes, make things tricky.

So, while having festivals in mind I sat down to fix my precious Lordibag. I’ve had this bag for eight years now, and the time has taken its toll on it. It’s started to crack in numerous of places, and by all means! This thing has gone through all kinds of festivals, all kinds of travels ALL OVER EUROPE, gone to SOO many concerts, been pulled and torn and gone through airportsecurity checks and ON TOP OF THAT, it has been my most loyal school-bag ever since I was 15, carried everything from papers to HEAVY HEAVY books. And of course, I’ve used in my every day life carrying everything from wallets to heavy groceries.

With other words. It’s been used a lot, so it being torn here and there, are no biggie. It’s rather remarkable that it’s not in shreds.

It has cracked like this in three out of four places, and it also has a few holes in the middle of the bag. But fear not!

As I said, no celebration, so I spent the day out in the lovely weather (while it was still lovely) repairing my old friend. It’s as good as new!

And with that, baggy-baggy and I are ready for our next adventures. That so happens to be something Lordi related. In Finland. So the first thing it will go through, are airportsecurities and trainrides. No rest!

What could it be, what could it be…
