nice topic! yeah, I hate it how so many love songs are about “sad love.” (Nice for when you’re feeling down, but sometimes you want happy songs!) 🙂

@red_rose: Thanks! Do you have any favorites?
I don’t want this to be my list, but a collaboration. If we pool our musical knowledge, this could be a good resource for bees in the future as well as now 🙂
