A banjo player who used to lead a song circle in Long Island once was asked, don't you guys know any happy songs?

He replied: There ARE no happy songs.

lol. I agree, all the good songs are sad ones.

....I was once complimented by an audience member for not singing songs where everyone ended up dead, mad or abandoned! So yes, there are plenty of happy songs. A balance of both, eh?

Best wishes,

Peter

There are plenty of convivial songs. Look under "Good Times" in RUS for a few.
