So that I May Enjoy my Toil

Taking a cue from Sara, I'm creating a paper-writing playlist specifically suited to my paper topic. I'll be writing about Qohelet's strange sense of joy, as in "all that is good for man is to eat, drink and enjoy his toil," or "if a man lives many years, he should rejoice in them all; but he should remember that the days of darkness will be many." Any song suggestions?

My suggestions are...

Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee - in Sister Act II style

Dancing Nancies by DMB

The famous camp song..."I've got that joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart...where?"

Two Pina Coladas - Jimmy Buffett

And the classic...
Jeremiah was a bullfrog...he was a good friend of mine...I never understood a single word he said, but I helped him drink his wine. Sing it...joy to the world!
