Here is a happy song for your weekend!

I have always been a fan of Mike Mains & The Branches, but it appears that he is no longer with The Branches. 😉  Three years ago I posted one of my favorite songs by them – “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright.” I have always found their music to be uplifting and fun. They are currently on tour and are coming to NYC this week. If I can get home in time … I will be there!

Not much to say today other than Be Happy and I hope things are going your way today. Happy weekend and enjoy the song!

SONG OF THE DAY – “EVERYTHING’S GONNA BE ALRIGHT” by Mike Mains & The Branches

I am traveling with my son at a golf tournament this week in (what feels like) the Middle of Nowhere, Massachusetts. I’m sure it is not as isolated as it feels, but it definitely feels like I am in small town New England. It is lovely out here and the course is beautiful; however, I could not get internet access out here yesterday. Luckily I have it today, so I am taking advantage of it now while I have it.

Today’s song is completely different from the one posted on Monday, but it is just as awesome. That is one of the things that I love most about music!

I absolutely adore the feeling of this song. It just makes me feel good and brings a smile. I think it is because I feel the same attitude that the song title suggests and I really find that feeling empowering. The lyrics of this song are inspiring. One of my favorite lines is:

“You’ve got to fill your mind with new horizons or your dreams will pack their bags.”

Those words make me feel like I need to get moving and exploring new things, be more creative, adventurous, and jump in and take a risk. I find that I feel like I can when I listen to this song. I challenge you to listen to the song and watch the video below and see if you can do it without smiling. I can’t do it … I smile every single time. I am sitting here at the golf clubhouse restaurant and I think people must be thinking I am some crazy woman as I am sitting at my computer with headphones on and a stupid grin on my face. haha! Maybe I should turn the volume up and play it for the crowd.

I know it’s strange and I digress

The fact that we can’t understand

The meaning of this life

Sometimes it’s hard to find,

But if we learn to look between the lines of things

And if we’ll open up our eyes we’re going to see

The sunrise.

Everything, everything’s gonna be alright, gonna be alright!

Mike Mains & The Branches are an Indie Rock Band with a great sound. The band was originally formed in Gainseville, Texas in 2009, but that same year relocated to Michigan, which is the home state of Mains and Briggs. The band consists of Mike Mains, Shannon (Briggs) Mains,  and Nate Wethy (Mike and Shannon were married in 2012). Today’s song is from their sophomore album, Calm Down, Everything Is Fine, just released in February 2014 and entirely funded by a PledgeMusic campaign.

Enjoy!
