That's a cool track by Gnarls Barkley; a band that had few very cool songs.

I like the 2 steps rhythm, it reminds me of Love Don't Come Easy.

"Smiley Faces"
What did you do? What did you say?
Did you walk - or did you run away?
Where are you now? Where have you been?
Did you go alone - or did you bring a friend?
[Hook #1]
I need to know this - cause I notice when you're smilin'
Out in the sun havin' fun and you're feelin' free
And I can tell you know how hard this life can be
But you keep on smilin' for me
What went right? What went wrong?
Was it the story - or was it the song?
Was it overnight - or did it take you long?
Was knowing your weakness what made you strong?
[Hook #2]
Or all the above - oh how I love to see you smilin'
And oh yeah - take a little pain just in case
You need something warm to embrace
To help you put on a smilin' face
Hey, put on a smilin' face
Don't you go off into the new day with any doubt
Here's a summary of somethin' that you could smile about:
Say for instance, my girlfriend she bugs me all the time
But the irony of it all is that she loves me all the time
[Hook #3]
I want to be you - whenever I see you smilin'
Cause it's easily one of the hardest things to do
Your worries and fears become your friends
And they end up smilin' at you
Put on a smilin' face

The lyrics are quite smart, it's about how you deal with adversity, and put on a smiling face.
I recorded 2 versions, this was the second one, there is a moment when I speed up a little too much, but it's the type of song that needs that drive.
It's almost the end of the week, remember not to look too much at the drop, and remember during that time when you're posting you're accumulatin gmore HIVE, which is also cool!

Alright, I am quite quiet today haha, if you have anything interesting organized this weekend, don't hesitate to share it with us in the comment section!

Now I'm smiling and the scuba trick is hilarious!🤣🤣 This week-end I'm losing my room and puting all my stuff at a friends. On the bright side, I'll never have to see my psychopath neighbor nor the roach I killed on my wall again😅 And Saturday we're having a pre-Greater Reset potluck and a waterfall hike on Sunday. Will be meeting new people and hopefully bonding with this newfound community from all walks of life while we integrate with our newfound Mexican friends💞🙏 Will be smiley faces all week-end😀


I am glad you liked the scuba trick, it was impromptu! LOl a pre Greater Reset haha hilarious, happy you found like minded individual, it looks like everyone is going to Mexico haha ask @maxigan

Let us know how it went, any plan to post about it?

Don't know if I'll be able to go. I'm in the streets lol😬 We'll see🤷‍♀️

Putting on a smiley face always... That's a habit I really need to cultivate.

Hahah yep, me too though. It's the hardest thing to do, especially when facing adversity!

Hola mi amiga, es genial verte por aquí! ¡Estoy muy feliz de que te haya gustado la canción!

Thanks, it's a nice song!

What I ll do to learn how you get so crisp sounding .. Without white noise with your mic.

Is it the mic, room or some post production..

Great song.

Love really doesn't come easy.
