gonna soak up the sun

You know that spring has sprung and summer is on the way when DJs start pulling out the summer songs. You know, the up-tempo, toe-tappin' hits that feel like they are full sunshine and warm breezes. Songs that are almost always in major keys and feature fun back-up singers.
I am generally not a big Sheryl Crow fan, but on the way to work today i heard Soak Up the Sun for the first time this season and it made me smile. It is a fun sing-a-long summer song, but there is substance there as well: find your own happiness, it might even be as free as sunshine.
This week's quote (do you enjoy that i maintain the facade of changing the quote every week?) is the Crow-Trott penned chorus:
I'm gonna soak up the sun
Gonna tell everyone
To lighten up (I'm gonna tell 'em that)
I've got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I'm looking up
I'm gonna soak up the sun
Go outside, people.
Soak up some sun.
Make some yummy vitamin D.
Enjoy life.
