    There was this 1 song with happy in its title and it went like “Be happy, Happy” or maybe not I don’t really remember but it was really good, though I remember that its video of lyrics had a billboard used as a way to show the lyrics in that video… IDK if I will ever find that song again

    • Matthew Campbell says:

      Hi Benjamin. Sorry, but I am not familiar with the song. Maybe a reader will know it?? Good luck finding it.
