Isn't it weird that sometimes just thinking about things that make you happy is enough to actually make you feel happy? That's how I felt coming up with this list. The music that is most likely to give me the quickest "hit" of happiness is usually cheesy, easy to sing to, and condusive to car dancing. If you've ever seen me jamming out at a stop light, you'll know what it is that I am listening to :)
The Oldies: Ac-Cent-Tu-Ate the Postive by Johnny Mercer, Friendship by Johnny Mercer and Judy Garland, Singing in the Rain by Gene Kelly, God Only Knows by The Beach Boys
The Random: Mr. Blue Sky by ELO, Cracklin Rosie by Neil Diamond, Banana Pancakes by Jack Johnson, Shiny Happy People by R.E.M, Uhn Tiss by Bloodhound Gang, I Wanna Be Sedated by The Ramones, The Whole Wide World by Wreckless Eric, Whip It by Devo, You Make My Deams Come True by Hall & Oates, Escape by Rupert Holmes,
The Less Embarassing: Song for the Sunshine by Belle and Sebastian, I Wanna Be Sedated by The Ramones, Whole Wide World by Wreckless Eric
Also anything by Journey and Lady Gaga. I'll cop to that.
What are your favorite "happy songs"?
