Songs For Sunny Days

Lazy mornings brimming with sunshine. Slow long drives with the windows down and wind in the hair. Picnic baskets, mats and hammocks in the shade. Good friends and cold lemonade. Strawberries and cream. Blue skies and chatting. Dappled sunlight on lush grass. Pink petals floating down. Faroff birds, singing. Strumming guitars and humming. Praising the Maker Of All. Sleeping under strawhats. Being tickled by butterflies. Vast expense of green. A deaf girl in a pretty floaty summer dress, dancing. She loves a boy who lives in the Evil Empire. They are married in the summer.

(Eschatological in sentiment, not lyrics.)

There is something in
heart-bursting-with-song sunny days that always seems to point forward to the marvellous Last Day where the City of God will be lit not by the sun nor the moon but by the glory of God himself with Christ as the lamp (Revelations 21:23). But that bright and happy day for the saved will be a terrible fiery one for the damned. Since there'll surely be time enough for rest then, back to work while God still allows the sun to rise on both the evil and the good (Matthew 5:45)!

Belle & Sebastian - Another Sunny Day
The Walls - To The Bright and Shining Sun
El Perro Del Mar - It's All Good
El Perro del Mar - God Knows (You've Got To Give To Get)
Thao Nguyen - Feet Asleep (Daytrotter session)

Oh No! Oh My! - Walk In The Park
Suburban Kids With Biblical Names - Trees and Squirrels
The Billy Nayer Show - Rabbits and Bears
Cats On Fire - Praying On A Sunny Day
The Be Good Tanyas - Littlest Birds
