209: Life Can Be So Nice

Parade (1986)
One of the catchiest songs about scrambled eggs, second only to the theme tune from Frasier. Life Can Be So Nice is a humanist anthem, like What a Wonderful World, but with a message that’s hard not to take as an AM equivalent to Afternoon Delight. It comes crashing into this world with squealing flutes, makes a lot of reverbed noise, then abruptly finishes mid-sentence. If that’s not a tribute to the brevity and wonder of life then I’m Louis Armstrong.
