Happiness as Anarchy #14: Wrap Your Troubles In Dreams

There’s nothing quite like happy music to put a skip in your step. It’s terribly unfashionable but I do love Dean Martin, particularly in the car. At the moment I’m listening to an album of his greatest hits that I picked up in the op shop. No chance of getting bored because there are 25 tracks on the album, most of them happy. Wrap Your Troubles In Dreams is on there and keeps me smiling while I’m driving. Written in 1931 and first recorded by Louis Armstrong in November that year, it’s been recorded by so many great artists you could listen to it all day in different incarnations.
