Happy Songs: Which Tunes Make You Happy?

Share this post


Again, we've found ourselves inspired by Very Happy Person Anthony Lee, who shared a few of his favorite "happy songs" on our Delivering Happiness VHP Facebook page recently, and asked others to do the same. We all know what a powerful effect music can have on your state of mind, and some songs just equal instant happiness.

There are all kinds of happy songs; silly, catchy tunes like Outkast's "Hey Ya!" or songs that hit an emotional chord, like "What a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong. Some are maybe a little too happy; see "Walking on Sunshine" by Katrina and the Waves. Then there are songs that aren't necessarily happy-sounding, but make you feel happy because they're just so great; David Bowie's "Sound and Vision" does this for me!

Here are few happy hits suggested by our VHP's:

  • "Kokomo" by the Beach Boys
  • "I Gotta Feeling" by Black Eyed Peas
  • "Hold on Tight to Your Dream" by ELO
  • "Home" by Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros
  • "Fader" -by The Temper Trap
  • "Dream On" by Aerosmith

Not too shabby! Let's make our happy song list even longer; post your faves in the comments below, or become a VHP and get involved with our excellent Facebook discussions.
