Ten-time Grammy Award-winning artist Bobby McFerrin is a musician with sophisticated and eclectic talents. However, his biggest hit was this simple, catchy song he wrote in 1988, after seeing the inspiring words of an Indian mystic. "Whenever you see a poster of Meher Baba, it usually says 'Don't worry, be happy,' which is a pretty neat philosophy in four words, I think." Pretty neat and simple philosophy indeed.
