The 30 day song challenge.
Day 03 - a song that makes you happy – Paolo Nutini - Pencil Full Of Lead.
This whole album makes me smile, but this song in particular just shouts at me - Be happy, don't worry about all the shit in your life, you have what you need and you have love. It takes an Italian Glaswegian to put things so succinctly, but he's right.
There are a good few others that make me smile, most Bob Marley songs conjour images of sunny days and laid back ways, there are a few songs that make me laugh like Goldie looking chain or the Macc lads... but a smile is different, you can laugh when you're sad but you have to happy to smile. Paolo makes me smile
But best of all, I've got my baby.
