Hey Cupcakers, it’s Friday so that means it’s track of the week time once more.

After some glorious weather back in June and July it seems we’re back to good old British summer time with unpredictable conditions that seem more autumnal and cooler than we were getting used to a few weeks earlier. For me it’s been one of those long and tiring weeks and am particularly looking forward to the weekend to kick back and chill out.

I feel I need a bit of cheering up so what better than to have some uplifting music to listen to. This weeks track is a classic from the late 1960s. It’s a song that is quite regularly used in movies, TV and adverts and is one that can’t help but put a smile on your face (unless of course you’re dead inside…..only joking).

The track is of course Jackie Wilson’s ‘Higher and Higher’ first a hit back in 1967 but had a re-release back in the mid eighties with a number of his other hits like ‘Reet Petite’ and ‘I Get The Sweetest Feeling’.

I most recently noticed this song being used in the Netflix series Stranger Things 3.

Have a good weekend and feel joyful as you sing along to this song!

Paul 🙂
