Sorry if it's been done before but thought it would be nice to start a thread about songs that remind you of happy moments in your life...
here is mine to start..

La bamba..being very drunk with my friend in Carlisle outside the nurses home, student nursing days. We were singing this song very loudly, probably waking anyone who was asleep.

There are more but can't remember at this time. Will add later

My Dad singing 'When the Red,Red Robin comes bobbing along' to me when I was a little girl.

Just reminds me of my dear old Dad.

Just been having this coversation at work about songs that make me happy.

When I'm feeling down, I dust off my 70s cds and sing along. Cheers me up every time, but not sure that it cheers the neighbours up!!

Just for you Legs

TWENTY TINY FINGERS
(Sid Tepper / Roy Bennett)

The Stargazers

Also recorded by : Alma Cogan; Kilburn & The High Roads.


Oooooh! Twenty tiny fingers, twenty tiny toes
Two angel faces, each with a turned up nose
One looks like mummy, with a cute little curl on top
And the other one's got a big bald spot
Exactly like his pop, pop, pop,
Pop-a-dop, pop, pop,
Pop-pop.

She put on the light in the middle of the night
And whispered "Dear, let's go"
He grabbed a sock and called the Doc
He told him "Don't be slow"
I got her there with time to spare
And then I sat on pins
Until the Doctor shook his hand
And told him "You've got twins"

Oooooh! Twenty tiny fingers, twenty tiny toes
Two angel faces, each with a turned up nose
One looks like mummy, with a cute little curl on top
And the other one's got a big bald spot
Exactly like his pop, pop, pop,
Pop-a-dop, pop, pop,
Pop-pop.

We've got cribs and bottles and bibs
All round our three roomed flat
No time to see what's on TV
No room to hang your hat
We're on the run, we're never done
It's like a steeplechase
They came in and they took over
Like they owned the place

Oooooh! Twenty tiny fingers, twenty tiny toes
Two angel faces, each with a turned up nose
One looks like mummy, with a cute little curl on top
And the other one's got a big bald spot
Exactly like his pop, pop, pop,
Pop-a-dop, pop, pop,
Pop-pop.

It's twice the laundry, twice the milk
It's twice the baby clothes
It's double this and double that
Oh how the money goes
But now, you see, they both agree
When all is said and done
We've got twice the blessings
And we've got twice the fun

Oooooh! Twenty tiny fingers, twenty tiny toes
Two angel faces, each with a turned up nose
One looks like mummy, with a cute little curl on top
And the other one's got a big bald spot
The other one's got a big bald spot
Exactly like his -

Pop-pop.

Maggie, I bet it was really frustrating having to wait for the launch of the CD player in 1982 to play your 70s CDs.
