My Top 10 Happy Songs

Updated on December 6, 2014

Music That Makes You Smile

Happy songs are the ones that make you want to get up and dance, the songs that brighten your mood on a cloudy day. Often they are the songs from your past that have some special meaning or remind you of a special time in your life. Sometimes they are silly songs that just plain make you feel good when you hear them.

This lens, which is my first music lens, is written for the level 15 "quest for monster Herman Merman." Most of the songs I have chosen here fit into one of the above categories, a few were chosen just because they are songs about happiness. I hope these songs which are not listed in any particular order make you feel happy too!

Joy To The World - Three Dog Night

Silly and nonsensical, a fun upbeat song from my youth that makes me smile!

Girls Just Want To Have Fun - Cyndi Lauper

This song is just plain fun and I find it impossible to sit still when I hear it I just have to dance around...also my dog Aurora has claimed this song as her theme song! :)

Happy Together

-The Turtles

I Can See Clearly Now - Johnny Nash

This song has very special meaning for me dating back to my teenage years, it will always snap me out of a bad mood!

Dance To The Music - Sly & The Family Stone

Reminds me of my teenage days and it's just as much fun to listen to now!

C'mon Get Happy!

- The Partridge Family

Walking On Sunshine - Katrina & The Waves

This song always energizes me and puts a smile on my face and that is what happy songs are all about!

All Star - Smash Mouth

Another upbeat silly fun song that makes me feel good when I listen to it!

Make Someone Happy

- Jimmy Durante

Celebration - Kool and The Gang

A great party song for dancing and toe tapping fun!

YMCA - Village People

This a great song for raising the mood of an entire crowd and it always makes me laugh!

Don't Worry, Be Happy

-Bobby McFerrin

Wake Me Up Before You Go Go - Wham

This is a goofy feel good pop song that gets my toes tapping every time!

Dancing In The Streets - Martha and The Vandellas

A great party song, this one will get you up off the coach!

      Great list of songs! I'd forgotten about a few of these and probably wouldn't have known them just by name. I'm grooving to "Dancing in the Street" right now :)
