I found several more happy songs that I want to share in a new post. My last one was written a long time ago (I forgot to publish it) and several of my favorite songs didn’t make it because they hadn’t come out yet.
Song #1: ‘Uptown Funk’ by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars
This is a very upbeat, happy song. I’m really into it. I think just about everyone is. I just wish it didn’t have any bad language though.
Song #2: ‘Shut Up and Dance’ by Walk the Moon
I can’t help but get excited whenever I hear this song. It makes me grin and want to dance.
Song #3: ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’ by Marvin Gaye
This one is pretty peppy. It was suggested to me by someone. I don’t listen to it much, but it’s good.
Song #4: ‘When Can I See You Again’ by Owl City
This song is such a fun, catchy tune. I love it so much.
Song #5: ‘Happy’ by Pharrell Williams
Don’t pretend you didn’t see this one coming.
Song #6: ‘Twist and Shout’ by The Beatles
Suggested to me by a friend, it really is pretty peppy.
Song #7: ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey
It starts off slow, but ends up being amazingly catchy and upbeat by the end.
Song #8: ‘Roar’ by Katy Perry
You can’t deny how peppy it is. It’s got a pretty good beat too.
Song #9: ‘Mean’ by Taylor Swift
Not the peppiest song on the list, but it’s a good message to remember if bullies have you down.
Song #10: ‘Better Things’ by The Kinks
Recommended by a friend, it really is pretty upbeat. Inspirational too.
You can find part 1 here.
These aren’t all necessarily uplifting in their message, but they’re bouncy, fun, catchy songs that I just can’t help but feel happy during, and maybe it’ll be the same for someone else.
SONG #1: ‘Good to be Alive’ by Skillet
This is a song I can’t help but like. It never fails to cheer me up–even when I’m already in high spirits. It’s a fun song to bob your head to.
SONG #2: ‘Zip-a-Dee-do-Dah’ from Disney’s ‘Song of the South’
This is just a cute song all around. I’ve included two versions, one with the original, one with a more modern, peppy feel to it.
SONG #3: ‘Me Without You’ by tobyMac
I love this song. It’s so upbeat and makes you want to bob your head.
SONG #4: ‘Istanbul (Not Constantinople)’
I’m not sure on who sang the original, but I like the version I included (by Jimmy Kennedy and Nat Simon), mostly because the video lines up with it, even though they’re completely unrelated (and the video is actually in German!).
SONG #5: ‘Everybody Talks’ by Neon Trees
This is a song I just want to dance to whenever I hear it. It’s so darn catchy.
SONG #6: ‘Sweeter than Fiction’ by Taylor Swift
This is such a sweet song. I’ll let you look up the backstory for yourself, but it’s a good one.
SONG #7: ‘Dance Forever’ by Allstar Weekend
This is just a song it’s way too tempting to bob my head to–and that’s when I’m around people. Not even including what I’d do if I was alone.
SONG #8: ‘The Safety Dance’ by Men Without Hats
It’s just one of those songs that’s got a peppy beat and you want to dance around a little.
SONG #9: ‘I Ran Over the Taco Bell Dog’ by Weird Al
It’s short but hilarious.
SONG #10: ‘Walking on Sunshine’ by Katrina & the Waves
I’ve never known anyone who can stay sad during this song. Ever. I dare you to prove me wrong.
