W is for Walking on Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves
"Walking on Sunshine" is a song written by Kimberley Rew for Katrina and the Waves' 1983 debut full-length album.
I’ve chosen this song from my youth for its bouncy uplifting, nature. The words remind me of the quote by Sam Sundquist: “Sometimes you have to create your own sunshine.”
"I'm walking on sunshine (Wow!)
And don't it feel good"
This joyful song has been used in a number of feature films including:
The Secret of My Success (1987),
Bean: The Ultimate Disaster Movie (1997) and
American Psycho (2000).
Also, Jack Black's character in High Fidelity (2000) plays this song on a cassette tape.
