Smile, Darn Ya, Smile!

Favorites of the Roaring Twenties is a cassette I came across a few years ago.  I love listening to songs like this and rekindling my optimism that, if you hang on during tough times, eventually you will come through your troubles in one piece.  It doesn't always work out that way, I know, but even if your ship is sinking, why not smile with your last breath?  (Of course you should also pack a life preserver and stay away from icebergs!)
