We play a game called My 3 Songs. I pick a topic. Present it to my listeners. They chime in with their 3 favorite songs about said topic. This time around “Laughing within a song”. A song that contains some sort of actual laughing.

As always NEXTers thank you for your comments and playing along. I’ll make a post a Spotify playlist. Scroll to the bottom.

If you would not be laughed at, be the first to laugh at yourself. — Benjamin Franklin

If you wish to glimpse inside a human soul and get to know the man, don’t bother analyzing his ways of being silent, of talking, of weeping, or seeing how much he is moved by noble ideas; you’ll get better results if you just watch him laugh. If he laughs well, he’s a good man…All I claim to know is that laughter is the most reliable gauge of human nature. — Feodor Dostoyevsky

If you have no tragedy, you have no comedy. Crying and laughing are the same emotion. If you laugh too hard, you cry. And vice versa. — Sid Caesar

The top 3 songs mentioned by NEXTers. Can you find all the laughing?

Number 1 (four songs)

Number 2 (2 songs)

And then the rest.

Bummed no stated this one. I guess it wouldn’t make my top 3. Well, maybe it would. But actually this was the song that got me thinking about the topic. So there’s that.

Spotify playlist of laughing songs. Enjoy.

I love this live version. Couldn’t find it on Spotify but Elvis cracks himself up live after changing the lyrics…
