Song of the Day: Walking On Sunshine

Today’s song is Walking On Sunshine by Aly & AJ.

Pop-rock.
This isn’t the same as the new-wave original (from Katrina and the Waves – 1985).
As someone who was impacted by Hurricane Katrina, the naming is rather inconvenient.

Another upbeat track (covered by a fun sister-duo).
Repetitive, but extremely catchy and never fails to instill goofy optimism (especially when actually walking somewhere.

Now every time I go for the mailbox, gotta hold myself down.
‘Cause I just can’t wait till you write me your coming around
.

This has nothing to do with That’s So Raven.

The accompaniment actually rocks pretty hard.
Seriously, that drummer is giving their all in this for some reason.
Props to the guitar as well (and the incessant clapping that doesn’t quit).

Is it a silly song? Yeah.
Still, it gives me some optimism at times, and that’s all that matters.
