Join me in listening to ‘Whatever Makes You Happy’ on repeat today

By 05.Aug.098 Comments

I’m in pouty mcpout pout mode because I didn’t get into a writing program I wanted to get into. For some reason whenever I’m all sad and mopey, I turn to this song (that’s only after The Smiths start to annoy me, and frankly, let’s be real that takes roughly 11 minutes).

I think it’s the line, “now whatever makes you happy, I’m pretty sure it isn’t me.” Slays me every.single.time.


I am the queen of the underground, a bad ungrateful bunny.


  • Jake says:

    I love this song…puts a smile on my face.

  • Jodi says:

    Really? I think it’s so sad.

  • Jonathon Hackett says:

    I just love that this was shot in his bathroom, sunglasses and all. Great performance, really dig the rhyme scheme. Only complaint is that he doesn’t show his fretting hand…

  • Jake says:

    It always makes me smile,I have no idea why. Maybe because it is more upbeat musically than the lyrics imply.

  • zook says:

    It makes me both happy and sad. The music is definitely upbeat but that line that Jodi quoted gets me all the time too. I so miss seeing Paul live.

  • Matt says:

    I think The Smiths are pure gold, but that’s me.

  • tom weber says:

    How dare you put down the Smiths. Just the sweet and sad sound of Johnny Marr’s guitar alone could make a grown man cry any day… any day…

  • Jodi says:

    Didn’t you get the memo? I will dare.
