    From the obscure to more extremely low hanging fruit.

    Bonus points for the song played by the pep band after every basketball win!

    Good choice. Somehow I forgot to put that on my list.

    YES! What a song!

    And more horns as well!

    I cited this in a separate OTN thread (“Unsung Heroes”). The title itself, “Happy,” suggests, um ... “happy,” but actually, that detail seems incidental.




    And one with pleasantry-appeal

    Did not know that. Trying to remember the last time I was at a basketball game in Hilton. Drawing a blank. Probably some preseason cupcake about 2005.

    Great performance but the video doesn't match the audio. Should be some huge voice drop-outs when he's away from the mic. But yeah, the audio/performance stands on its own.

    Unfortunately, at the end of the Wayne Morgan era, there weren't many teams that could be considered cupcakes.

    I really miss being in the pep band. Got to go see all the home games and go to tournaments as well.

    Dearly beloved, we are gathered here to today to get through this thing called life...

    Infectious tune from an all time great, who was gone too soon.

    This is one song that is guaranteed to get a whole bunch of aging boomers onto a wedding reception dance floor (aside from the obvious YMCA). Speaking from experience here. :D

    It only takes two bars of one finger on a piano to get them out of their seats.

    I want to see if @MeanDean or @cyclones500 can guess it before I post it.

    I am probably the least wedding reception attending person you will ever meet. I'll guess "Louie Louie." The two bars and one finger on a piano - clue is too vague for me, I guess.

    And PS: I've never done the YMCA thing. Ever.

    Bass clef, equal time on the notes - five times on one note then down the scale three more:
    Badadada da da da dum

    How about high whitey tighties, crew socks, a long sleeved shirt and a candlestick for a microphone?

    Yeah, I got it now, as does everyone else. From the movie. Bob Seger.

    Is Cab Calloway's Minnie the Moocher acceptable for this category?
