Yo ho ho ho! Celebration songs, Anyone?

Kool and the Gang maybe...  What's you favorite Celebration Song?  Send me a link in the comments (I'll scroll copy it - don't worry about making it link) and I'll put it up this month. 

Why celebrate?  Uh, why not? 

Oh, I have signed new representation for my little lucky self and the Dead Rules kids.  I am now represented by the wonderful literary agent Merrilee Heifetz and her talented assistant Jennifer Escott at Writers House. Y ése es no caca de vaca nada.

¡O sí, esto es bueno! 

Make that:  Muy bueno todo el tiempo y muy muy muy....
 

I owe one very special thank you to the unsinkable Stephanie MacLean for introducing me and my work to Merrilee and Jennifer. Gracias el último posible máximo, Stefani!

P.S. If you don't send me a celebration song.  I'll just keep putting my own up.  Hay te guacho, cucaracho.

1. Here's one from Julia Karr, author of XVI, (because I love GREASE) and have just enough room for it. :-) Youtube has disabled embedding this one, so click here: Celebrate The One That I Want.

And since this dandy celebration song will embed, I'm adding it:

I was gushing about WRITERS HOUSE!! OMG that is such call for HUGE celebrations! Way to go Randy! My fav song eva is Drops of Jupiter by Train, but don't know if that's an appropriate celebration song for this momentous occasion! WOW!

Thanks, Terry! I'm still rolling around on the floor, wondering if it's real. Meanwhile, I'm listening to Drops of Jupiter...

How about the Black Eyed Peas:
"I Gotta Feeling. That tonight's gonna be a good, good night...."
