Sunday, Sunday, Sunshine...

It was the Sunday long run after a miserable cold wet week. What a transformation a day can make.

The sun shone for four and a half glorious hours on a spectacular Vancouver Sunday spring day... The weather and scenery just made you want to burst into song. The buds were budding, the flowers flowering, the runners running. It was all good.

So, with sunshine on my mind I went to to look for song lyrics featuring "sunshine"...

You know me, short on words and all...

I was astonished. You have to see the breadth and variety of artists who have sung about "sunshine" to believe it.

I had a blast! Heard stuff I'd almost forgotten. Heard amazing new artists I never knew existed...
