Advice Songs of the 1980s

Advice21980s Advice Songs

Giving and accepting advice is one part of life that helps us through the trials and tribulations we are faced with.

The problem with advice is that we often don’t take it, especially if it means doing or admitting something that we’d rather not. Sometimes advice brings up an option you didn’t think of before, or gives you another question without an answer.Often inspiring and uplifting, sometimes a cold slap in the face, and occasionally funny, the great thing about advice songs is that you can kick back and listen to someone else coach you through a tough situation while rocking out at the same time.

Advice may be given… advice may be taken. Even advice without an answer can remind you that you are never alone.

Definition: an opinion or recommendation offered as a guide to action, conduct. Advice, reflective thought and a pause in instinctive reactions can help people make the right decisions.

Definition: to consider something deeply and thoroughly; meditate or to weigh carefully in the mind and consider thoughtfully.

Here’s a little song I wrote.
You might want to sing it note for note!
Don’t worry, be happy!
In every life we have some trouble,
but when you worry you make it double.
Don’t worry, be happy!!
