Don’t worry, Be Happy!

November 9th, 2009

“Don’t Worry Be Happy” by Bobby McFerrin. A award winning song that was coincidently released on the same month I was born on (September 1988). It is one of my favourite song and I specially like to listen at it in loop when I feel sad.

Listen to the original clip here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-diB65scQU

Today while doing on research, I found a nice sermon that uses this song to illustrate it’s teaching.

You can find that sermon here: http://www.foresthillspres.org/DontWorryBeHappy.htm

Here is a Christian version of the song in arabic, that my lovely cousin Mary Habib just sent me, it is written by His Holiness the Pope Shenouda III: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgdJ4gqbM0g

Let me know what you think about it!
