Sunshine, Blue Sky

Just heard Lucy Schwartz‘s “Captain Sunshine”:

Nice song.  Reminds me a bit of ELO‘s “Mr Blue Sky” (perhaps as played by the Plastic Ono Band?):

  1. When you think about it, seems strange there are so few popular songs that evoke, directly or indirectly, the simple uber-joy of a sunny day. I Can See Clearly Now, Here Comes the Sun come to mind. But not enough others! Yet another reaction to modernity?

    • “Hot Fun in the Summertime,” “Good Day, Sunshine,” but most of the few I can think of were ’60s hippy songs. I wonder if love lost songs also outnumber love found songs. Or perhaps it’s just because most pop artists are creatures of the night, spending their time in dark clubs and closing the shades to go to sleep when the sun comes up?
