Friday Flips [pt.4] – Don’t Worry Be Happy (The Playing for Change version)

What are the songs that make you instantly feel relaxed and chilled as fuck? The songs that after a week of work you put on and instantly feel like you just nailed the week? The ones that take you away to the beach in your mind, that place where you feel connected to who you truly are, and all that’s truly important… The ones that connect you to the fact that you all you need to be happy is to be alive… Or the songs that make you instantly think that, shit, life is fucking brilliant…? Or maybe just the ones that remind us that even though something might feel sucky, things could be suckier or even suckiererer…?

If you’re reading this, you’re alive. And if you had a gun held to your hand and someone was about to shoot you, what’s the one thing you’d probably wish you had at that point? A sweet ass ride, barrels full of riches, a mansion made of gold… probably not. I’m guessing you’d wish just to not be killed (in other words, continue to be alive). Well I’m not going to shoot you, and guess what, you have been granted that wish, right now.

Be happy.

Don’t worry, be happy. – The philosophy of: Playing for Change (This is so fucking great.)
