Sunny Sanity Break

No kidding, we could all use some cheering up.  So I'm starting a new miniseries here of various versions of "The Sunny Side of the Street" that I like.

Since its debut during the Depression, it's been recorded by many artists in many different styles.  I kept checking them out because frankly there isn't to my ear a definitive one.  But the search turned up some gems, and the song is always fun.

I'm not into cat videos, so from now until the election I'm going to post my favorite versions every once in awhile.   I'll start with what comes closest to the classic definitive version--by Louis Armstrong.  It swings, oh yeah.
