About This Song


44 TYPES OF HAPPINESS: When I first took on the name Happy people had lots of negative responses, thinking Happiness was boring, I responded that there were lots of shades of Happiness and that it offered a rich way of living life. So i've tried to list in this song all the different shades of being happy (don't miss the extended list at the end). Did I miss any? What are your favorite ways of being happy?

Feedback Requested


I think the song is basically done, but am thinking of adding a funky backing vocal, would be interested if anyone had any backing vocal ideas

Hey, Ronald!  Welcome to Frettie!  I’m tickled pink that you’re here!  Thanks for sharing your song…

What a fun, quirky song!  It kinda feels like something my kids could watch in a cartoon on PBS Kids.  Kind of a Schoolhouse Rocks about emotion or something.

I think you can beat what you have in the 2nd verse.  All you’re basically saying is “hey, let’s add some more ways to be happy” but you go right back into the same list we’ve already heard.  Try to take the 2nd verse somewhere new.  Maybe something about how your friends look 3 kinds of confused, so you just smile and say again… chorus.  Or expand on the thought that it gives you so many ways to play.  Depending on the type of happy, you’ll jump up and down, just sit down and smile or… whatever.  You get the idea.  Show us just a little of what effect the different kinds of happiness can have on you, when you’re… chorus.

Hope that helps.  It’s a fun song.  Thanks for sharing!

this is my favorite of the 2 songs. I agree with Brent, I hear this in a kids movie, show. It’s a lot of fun and gets stuck in my head. It reminded me of something pixar or disney, Toy story, Jungle book. I really like the instrumentation in this song it flows well and I really like when you start to say the words fast, adds fun variety to the song.

44 Types Of Happiness

Written by Ronald Hill

44 TYPES OF HAPPINESS
By Happy Ron

I got me some friends
They ask me time and time again
Why would you want to feel
Just one way?

I hit em with the fact
Happiness is more then that
Cause it gives you so many ways
To play

a-LERT a-LIVE a-MAZED a-MUSED
Mellow Merry Mighty Moved
bel-LOVED blessed brave and bright
Sassy Spended Outa sight
eLATed EAger EARthy EAsy
Calmly-Charming Cheerfully-Cheeky

Intense Inspired Intrigued Involved
Open OK Overjoyed
GLOWing GIDdy GUTsy GLEEful
Unfazed Unreal Upbeat Useful
Peaceful Perky Pleasant Pleased
Thankful thrilled and touched and teased

I made it to 44
And I hope it won't be a bore
But I hope you'll help me add
To the score

REPEAT BRIDGE

grateful
powerful
capable
unstoppable

Now we're at 44 + 4
And before I walk out this door
I hope you’re help me find
Even more

Don’t forget Zestful
