30 Songs in 30 Days - Day 3

Day 3 - A Song That Makes You Happy

One of the very best things about music is how it can evoke emotions or prompt memories. It's fantastic when a song comes on the radio and puts a smile on your face, whether it's because of a particular lyric or because the tune reels you in.

A song that makes me happy is Imani Coppola's "Legend of a Cowgirl".

Yes, you'll probably notice the hook right away at the beginning of the song. It's from Donovan's "Sunshine Superman", which is a great song in its own right. Yes, I do find it just a bit amusing how I was bemoaning samples in yesterday's post. That's amusing, Alanis — not ironic.

But it's a great hook. I can't help it. There's nonsense rap, there's a fun chorus — there's even a fiddle. The whole album, Coppola's debut effort, is a good listen, but it happens that the lead single is the most fun on it. She's a talented multi-instrumentalist, and it's a real shame that she's never had the commercial success predicted for her.
