Lots of music makes you feel good. But what about those tunes that get the love and joy flowing toward the whole universe? Listening to Sirius XM on a Saturday morning, Oliver's version of "Good Morning Starshine" from the musical "Hair" came on. Talk about an endorphin-producing, universe-loving celebration. A marker for the optimism of a generation from the late 60's the song touches a place where many of us once were and still hope to find sometime. Still does it for me. While the song refers to "my love and me" it is the joy of living in and being touched by the universe that is the true theme. "Aquarius" from the same musical creates a similar feeling and bond but is not as personalized as "Starshine".

Any other suggestions of songs that tie you into the universe in the same way?

I think this sojourn was inspired as an over-compensation after that dreadful trip through Schmaltzville inspired by robslob's earlier thread. I believe that not only put a big hurt on my musical sensibilities but also damaged my view of the cosmos (can such bad taste truly exist?). Needed some major Schmaltz remover. Try it!

"Everything's Alright" Ian Gillian from Jesus Christ Superstar has helped me out from time to time.

"Help On the Way" from the Grateful Dead gives me hope and power.

"As" by Stevie Wonder, well, if that song don't help you out you need a lot more than music.

Edit: I don't know why Yvonne Elliman isn't credited with "Everything's Alright" on the JCS album.

Don't know if anyone else noticed that the guitar intro is badly out of tune...but once the song get's going it's just a part of the intonation of the tune....

I love this tune.....it has at times made me cry....

And this....

Imagine

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

Maybe it's a little obvious, a little on the nose, but the 4th Movement of Beethoven's 9th, also called the Ode To Joy, certainly fits.

When I was in college at Tulane, I had a habit of playing the Butterfield Blues Band's "East-West" during the peak of a psychedelic experience. All my friends started calling it "The Happy Song" because of the incredibly joyful and euphoric jam at the end.

for me, songs don't have to be "about" spiritual topics to move me in that way.
instrumentalists convey that emotion to me

almost anything by Charlie Parker - if I had to pick one it would be Parker's Mood
Trane - hard to pick one. Spiritual, A Love Supreme
Garcia - Lesh together, the instrumental section of Morning Dew comes to mind
Duane - Soul Serenade section of YDLM, Duande and Dickey both in Blue Sky
Derek - too many times to count - Sahib Teri Bondi, the outro of Anyday, Midnight in Harlem

"Good Morning Starshine"? Really?

La da da da , da da da , da da da , da da da da da
da da da, da da da, da da dad a, da da da da da ….

Good morning starshine
The earth says hello
You twinkle above us
We twinkle below

Good morning starshine
You lead us along
My love and me as we sing
Our early morning singing song

Gliddy gloop gloopy
Nibby nobby nooby
La la la lo lo
Sabba sibby sabba
Nooby abba dabba
Le le lo lo
dooby ooby walla
dooby abba dabba
Early morning singing song

Good mornin' starshine
There's love in your skies
reflecting the sunlight
in my lovers eyes

Good morning starshine
so happy to be
My love and me , as we sing
Our early morning singing song

Gliddy gloop gloopy
Nibby nobby nooby
La la la lo lo
Sabba sibby sabba
Nooby abba dabba
Le le lo lo
dooby ooby walla
dooby abba dabba
Early morning singing song

(music interlude)

Can you hear me?

Singing a song
Loving a song
