For Sunday: “I Can See Clearly Now,” by Johnny Nash

This is one of the few songs that makes me really happy. It’s all bright sunny imagery, sung by a guy with a pure mellow voice over a simple cheerful rhythm, with one of those background choirs that sings in exactly the right places.


And the chord progression at the end of the bridge makes me shiver every time: “Look straight ahead, nothing but blue skies . . .”
