It was February 12, 2008. My daughter Wendy was very tired of winter and was longing for spring. I mean she was really looking forward to it!
And then the idea came to me. I decided to play a song on my site, hoping it would cheer her up. I called it a Smile Song and I had no intention of doing it again.
The reaction to the song was better than I had anticipated so I decided to do another one … and then another and another. Before long, Smile Songs became a regular routine and over time, they morphed into 50s Smile Songs, 60s Smile Songs, #1 Smile Songs, and eventually, Medleys of songs.
I have counted up those individual Smile Songs (over 2,000 of them) and Medleys (over 1,800 of those) and all of it started because a father wanted to cheer his daughter up on a cold winter day 13 years ago.
Today I dedicate this one-song “medley” to Wendy and go back to that one song that started it all. ❤️
