Monday music, vol. 40: I Guess That’s Why They Call it The Blues

Every Monday, I’ll be sharing a pick-me-up song with the hopes of helping you begin your week on a positive note. Happy Monday!

Maybe this isn’t the first song you’d consider a happy song, but I remember giggling with my best friend in sixth grade over the line, “rolling like thunder under the covers.” And, like many songs, I enjoy belting this out in my car. Therefore, it equals a good mood.

  1. My parents drilled Elton (and James Taylor, Rod Stewart, Beatles, Billy Joel, etc. etc.) into us as kids so our favorite past time was singing at the top of our lungs in the car. My husband and SIL each find this to be one of our families funniest qualities. I think it was bonding over our terrible voices.
