Finding it is often an elusive target. Especially if you ever dare to turn on the news.

And sticking my head in the sand only gets me so far.

Music – you guessed it – is the only thing I find that can consistently make it happen. An instant happy place, no matter the location.

So I’m hereby, well, happy to present an appropriately happy playlist: “Come On Get Happy,” 30 great tunes all with “happy” in the title.

Come on, get happy! (it’s worth a try)

Besides, another consistent part of my thinking is anytime you can connect a thematic line from Earth, Wind & Fire to The Partridge Family you cannot pass it up.
