I'm really reaching here: I started a thread a while back about "Happy music that doesn't suck." It flopped because I didn't know what I wanted, now I do... nah, not really. The bands I like that are happy have a certain weirdness to them, very odd, yet happy...ish. Oingo Boingo Devo Primus XTC Joe Jackson I guess the term New Wave could be used Also, note all these bands have great bassists So... happish bands that have a certain edge that sets them apart from the rest... sort of. My god, I just don't make any damn sense anymore.
