These Palila needed a song title that had lots of dizzying joy and a whirlwind of happiness. What better song than the definition of sunshine pop? I added in the "so", it's really titled "happy together" but I felt it needed the "so" in it... Makes it even more happy.
The Palila is a critically endangered bird of Hawaii. They have little masks or black lores that remind me of zorro, and their bellies have a bib of yellow over white. The Mamane flower is the Palila's food of choice. As the Mamane has declined, so has the Palila. Conservation groups are working hard to protect the Palila's remaining habitat. I just imagine the Palila making a strong comeback, so we can see them so happy together where they belong.
