It is interesting the different ways to use sunshine in the song title. It can be a good day for sunshine. One can steal sunshine.

The sunshine can shine and also shine in one particular spot like a shoulder. The sunshine also shines on the ground because people can walk on it. (See a list of walk songs) Apparently, people can capture it because you can stick it in your pocket.

    1. Thank you Eric for the suggestion. We added the song to our list and added a few newer songs too.

  1. “We’ll Sing in the Sunshine” 1966, Gale Garnett. Actually, sounds kind of like a “pre-nuptual” song, but great music anyway!

  2. “You are my sunshine” recorded by Gene Autry; also recorded by Willie Nelson. Certainly the oldest song.
