I'm Walking On Sunshine!

Internet is an interactive medium, or so I'm told, so let's get cracking with the interactive bit. Work with me here people!

Crank up the volume, click on play to start the video and merrily sing along, in tune please, thank you!

Are you ready? Start moving to the beat gardenbloggers! That's it! Catchy tune isn't it? Poor Wolfgang from Wildwuchs unter Aufsicht won't be able to get this one out of his head for the next 2 weeks or so.


Ohhhhhhhh yeahhhhh!

I used to think maybe you loved me, now baby I'm sure

And I just can't wait till the day when you knock on my door

Now every time I go for the mailbox, gotta hold myself down
Cos I just wait till you write me, you're coming around.

Go for the mailbox, write? When was this written, in 22 BC?

I'm walking on sunshine, woooah

I'm walking on sunshine, woooah

See that Kylee of Our Little Acre moving and a-grooving in her stylish garden shoes!

I'm walking on sunshine, woooah
and don't it feel good!

Hey alright now
and don't it feel good!!
Hey yeah!

Don't it feel good? Highbrow it isn't! Moving on!

I used to think maybe you loved me, now I know that it's true

And I don't want to spend all my life, just in waiting for you

Now I don't want you back for the weekend
Not back for a day, no no no
I said baby I just want you back and I want you to stay
Woooah yeah
Are we bopping bloggers?

I'm walking on sunshine, woooah
I'm walking on sunshine, woooah
I'm walking on sunshine, woooah
Grooving to the beat? Best clog forward, Carol of May Dreams Gardens!

Hey alright now
and don't it feel good
hey yeah, of yeah,
and don't it feel good!
That's right snap those fingers and Green Thumbs!
Shake it, Libby, shake it!

Walking on sunshine
Walking on sunshine
Gotta garden, you know you gotta .... dance!

I feel the love, I feel the love, I feel the love that's really real
I feel the love, I feel the love, I feel the love that's really real

I feel the love? Excuse I, but shouldn't that be bliss?
I feel the bliss, I feel the bliss, I feel the bliss that's really real!
There, much better, less soppy.

I'm on sunshine baby oh
I'm on sunshine baby oh

We are dancing ladies and gentlemen!
That's right Ladyluz, strut your stuff!

I'm walking on sunshine woooah

I'm walking on sunshine woooah
I'm walking on sunshine woooah

Stuart, that's the idea, shake that booty!

and don't it feel good
I'll say again now
And don't it feel good!!!

There, this shot in the arm was prescribed for you by Dr Feelgood, better known as Yolanda Elizabet of Bliss. No need to thank me, your bill is in the mail!

A bit of Bliss a day
Keeps the doctor away!

YE: You are the best! Loved the song and love the pictures. Thanks for a good start to a beautiful day!

Lis said...

Jaaaa, da muss ich doch gleich raus in die Sonne gehen! :-)

Deine Schuhe sind echt witzig!

Hillside Garden said...

Ein gelber Post! Sehr sonnig und ansprechend! Ich wollte mir auch solche Schuhe kaufen, sie passen mir leider nicht.
In meiner Nähe ist eine Firma, die solche herstellt.


Jen Fu said...

Katrina and the Waves! Lovely.

I loved your roses from yesterday.

Susan said...

Yolanda Elizabet -- I love your yellow flowers . . . and your song. I haven't hear that one in a while.

Bert said...

Well, Yolanda I don't know how the weather is at your place, but here the sun is shining. So I'm walking in the sun. Nice song anyways!!
So let's walk in the sunshine as long as he's shining.

RUTH said...

It worked for me....I just opened you up in another tab. Great song and brilliant post to go with it! It's been a fabulously sunny day here so went right along with my day.

Thanks for the entertainment, Yolanda Elizabet. I'll be humming it and thinking of you for days to come!! :)

Hi Yolanda,

I loved it! I hope you don't mind that I referenced you in my blog at
I liked the cheezy video as well!

Tyra said...

Carol said...

I'm walking in sunshine in my GREEN clogs. Oh, yes, GREEN clogs, and with a hoe in my hand! And I'm lovin' it!

Julia said...

I remember seeing that in concert, when I was 13. It wasn't in the year 22 B.C., but close!

OldRoses said...

I think that this is the first time that I've hummed my way through a blog post. Thanks for the smile and the memories!

Yolanda Elizabet said...

Hi all and welcome to sunny Bliss!

Green Thumb: keep snapping those green thumbs and dancing! :-)

Layanee: glad it gave you such a good way to start your day!

Lis: sunshine is good and the shoes are fun!

Sigrun: yellow is so sunny, isn't it? Pity about the shoes though!

Jen Fu: welcome and glad you liked it all.

Susan: the song is from 1985, so it's an oldie but goodie. ;-)

Marleen: bedankt en wie weet? ;-)

Bert: this song makes me feel I'm walking in sunshine, even when I'm not. And my new garden shoes help with that too. :-)

Ruth: glad it worked for you and that it made your day even more sunny!

Chris: I think we are all humming it! ;-)

Annette: liking the cheesy vid is OK too. ;-) And yes, no prob!

Tyra: you speak Dutch!!! Glad you liked it!

Carol: sunshine, green clogs, hoe and loving it! Check!

Julia: I'm glad that I went for 22 BC and not with *when the dinosaurs still roamed this earth* because _that_ would have made you feel really old! :-D

Oldroses: well, there's a first time for everything! :-)

I'm happy to see that fun was had by all. Mission accomplished! :-)

Hallo Yolanda, hätte ich gewußt, was mich hier erwartet, hätte ich nicht bei Lis die Link-Liste von A-Z abgearbeitet, so dass ich erst jetzt zu Dir komme!
Super Idee, perfekte Umsetzung und Wolfgang grinst übers ganze Gesicht, was Du Dir für ihn ausgedacht hast (You Tube). Leider hat er eben keine Zeit, wird sich Deinen Post aber bestimmt morgen früh in aller Ruhe ansehen.
Dein Blog ist wirklich wahre Lebensfreude!
Liebe Grüße Silke

Kylee said...

Wah-ohhhhhhhhhhh, I'm walkin' on sunshine!!!!!!!!!!! Don't it feel GOOD!!

You bet! And that is one my very favorite summer songs!!!

Mom and I are off to the Cleveland Flower Show, or I'd show off my daisy feet!

Fun, fun post, Yolanda! I'll be reporting from the show later tonight!

The County Clerk said...


Now I'm going to have that song in my head all day... which isn't too bad.

Wah-ohhhhhhhhhhh, And don't it feel GOOD!!

ladyluz said...

Inspirational Yolanda. I'm going to do it again tomorrow! You have some great ideas.

exile61 said...

Yolanda, for a moment I have thought you lost it. :-) What a funny idea to sing through your blog. Here I am finishing my day rather late and you put me in the mood to sing and dance. :-) Dancing through your garden. Great post! Andrea

Gotta Garden said...

You are too much, YE!! Of course, we all love this! How do you get those kitties to make such adorable pictures! And, those shoes! Yellow is such a great color, isn't it! Thanks for a spot of sunshine!

Anita said...

Singing: I am walking on sunshine, ooohhh yeahhhh!

Hey, that is a great post and I guess now I am gonna have this song in my heart for the whole week-end!

Happy gardening!

Groetjes, Anita

Hannele said...

Nice song and shoes.

iwan said...

Kate said...

That was great fun. And there was Surprise just a groovin' to the beat!

Entangled said...

I knew I was behind in my blog-reading, but I didn't realize I was that far behind! 1985!

How clever you are! :)

Yolanda Elizabet said...

Hi all and welcome to sunshiny Bliss!

It was great fun for me to read all your comments. Many of you were laughing, dancing and singing, in others words; having fun!!! Now that's what it is all about.

Amazing what buying a pair of sunny shoes can do. :-D

I'm walking on sunshine woooah, and you bet it feels good!!!
