The Happy Song

Want to know what song is playing on repeat in my head at the moment? This one.

Not surprising, seeing as it was created to be an earworm (you know, one of those songs you can’t get out of your head). There’s a whole story behind the creation, in fact – how a group of scientists enlisted singer/songwriter/Mom Imogen Heap to write it based on a bunch of scientific findings and then tested it on a group of babies till they hit the winning formula.

It’s a fascinating read (check it out here) and the song is apparently guaranteed to make babies smile! It worked on Ella. And me.
