This is a song of joy.

I’m no fan of musicals. But Singin’ In The Rain is such a beautiful, perfect distillation of the joy of optimism.

Life is beautiful! Nature is wonderful! Just shrug your shoulders and enjoy life! There is no room for cynicism with this song.

Gene Kelly is such a sunny performer. We are indelibly imprinted with the memory of his untouchably ecstatic performance in the eponymous movie.
The whole song is imbued with happiness. So this is what I sing aloud when I cycle in the rain. Every time (honest). See blog: Cycling In The Rain Is Fun Ever since I started cycling as a kid.

‘Joy’. What a great word.
