How I Get Happy

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="98" caption="Louis Armstrong"]Louis Armstrong[/caption]

Ever have a really awful, terrible, no-good day? I did. Yesterday. But only for about a minute, because whenever I'm down, nobody gets me happy again like my guy Satchmo.

My boyfriend Louis Armstrong and I have been an item since, oh, about 1963. Watching him smile, or hearing him sing Hello Dolly, or Mack the Knife, or What A Wonderful World is absolutely guaranteed to make anybody feel happy all over again. He's jazz's answer to Prozac.

Got a YouTube favorite of your own? Convince me to break it off with the Satch by clicking that Comments link below.

  1. When I'm down I hit Youtube for my friend's kids - absolutely killer bluegrass musicians at ages 14, 11, and 9. With kids like this, there's hope for the world.
