Do You Sing When You're Happy?

Anyone remember this song?

It might just be an idiosyncrasy of mine to say this, but sometimes objective clues tell me my mood better than my emotions. There are times when I feel neutral, but then I burst out singing. Usually I sing when I'm happy, although I sometimes sing when I'm sad, and sometimes when I'm vengeful. That I know more happy songs than sad ones prevents me from very often singing when I'm sad or otherwise unhappy. As a result, it's a good bet that a song from me is a happy one. Which has been good for me to know because at times I'll discover that I'm singing when I hadn't planned to and find that the mood-uncommitted-to-opinion of a moment earlier had a little bit more cheer in it than I thought.... Or I'm crazy.

Yegawds, I'm thinking in my public speaking teacher's voice, which is actually not good news. I shall go watch Neil Gaiman on Q TV. Sigh.

Okay, so yeah, am I alone in this weirdness? Or are there people out there who also use objective tells to judge their own emotions? It's weird.

I pretty much do the same thing. Not necessarily with singing, but having ways other than knowing how I feel to figure out how I feel.
