Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows

Okay ... so I remember oldies.  Actually it was a little funny, cause yesterday, after spending some time with my grandkids, a song was running through my mind.  It is an old one, sung by Lesley Gore.  My sister Heather and I shared a room for a while - and I remember that she had an LP by Lesley Gore.
So first of all - well and "LP" is likely something of such an ancient past!  (when we were moving, Michael wondered what we wanted to do with all of our LPS which we kept, but I am not sure why!!)
Something nostalgic I guess!!

I played that LP alot - something about the song "It's My Party" and "Judy's Turn to Cry", and I - being a young girl just only about 12 .... those songs are indelibly written in my memory!!  ANYHOW ... back to yesterday.

I realized that the song that was running through my mind, or should I say the LINE was Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows everything ...Not sure if I believe that life is just all that ... but hey yesterday, I just felt alive and loved!  Sometimes a gal my age needs those reminders from Lesley Gore songs!!  (now do I sound shallow??)

I thought, for old times sake - I would just play you a YouTube - from the 60's ... Lesley Gore.
Have a listen - smile - sing a long - and just for a few moments - head down memory lane to the 60's (for those of you who loved the 60's).  For the rest of you younger peeps - either just close this post and go on about your day OR humour me and sing along!!  I posted the lyrics at the end!!  (oh, and check out her back up - pretty funny too!!  But all in all - pretty wholesome next to some of what happens today!  At least the suits are all matching!!)

Wishing you Sunshine today!!  Hope you are experiencing LOVE!!

Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows,
Everything that's wonderful is what I feel when we're together,
Brighter than a lucky penny,
When you're near the rain cloud disappears, dear,
And I feel so fine just to know that you are mine.

My life is sunshine, lollipops and rainbows,
That's how this refrain goes, so come on, join in everybody!

Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows,
Everything that's wonderful is sure to come your way
When you're in love to stay.

My life is sunshine, lollipops and rainbows,
That's how this refrain goes, so come on, join in everybody!

Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows,
Everything that's wonderful is sure to come your way
'Cause you're in love, you're in love,
And love is here to stay!
