Well, we've talked about sad movies and sad songs...but what about those songs that just cheer you up on a bad day...the CD or song that you KNOW you can pop into the player and in about thirty minutes you will be smiling or laughing or bopping in your chair or whatever?

Here are some of mine (I'll probably add to this): Moxy Fruvous: King of Spain

Once I was the King of Spain
Now I eat humble pie
...
I'm telling you I was the King of Spain
And now I work at the Pizza Pizza

Almost anything by They Might Be Giants, especially Birdhouse in Your Soul, Women and Men, and most of the stuff from their CD Apollo 18.

A lot of silly Weird Al stuff (as you guys can tell, I like goofy things...but I keep them around for the purpose of cheering me up, see?

Dar Williams: Family
Dar Williams: The Blessings
Dar Williams: The Christians and the Pagans (very bouncy)
Dar Williams: As Cool As I Am (again, very bouncy, music-wise)
Eagle Eye Cherry: Save Tonight. This one, I know, is kind of a sad song, but it resonates a lot with my SO and I because we were in a LDR for a long time and now that's over and we always perk up when we hear that song just because it resonates so well with both of us and it's very recognizable...so that's more of a "wow, this reminds me of my SO" kind of thing.

And lots of Cyndi Lauper, again for the bouncy quality of the music.

*Mandy Moore- Candy
*Christina Aguilera- Genie in a Bottle
*Britney Spears- Sometimes, Hit Me Baby One More Time
*Creed- Higher
*Sum41- Fat Lip

------------------
So let's go there
Let's make our escape
Come on, let's go there
Let's ask can we stay?

Can you take me higher?
To the place where blind men see
Can you take me higher?
To the place with golden streets

Anything by the Promise Ring. These emo kids are fabulous. Also, I'm thinkin' that some Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet is always good for curing the blues. (If you don't know 'em, they did all the music for the Kids in the Hall TV series.)

I must say- "steal my sunshine" by Len has always seemed like a happy song to me. I also like "you gave your love to me softly" by Weezer (even though it's not particularly bouncy, it always gets me up and going). And any classical music seems to make me happy (not the typical choice of music for most teenagers, but what can I say?).

Oh yes, and.. *gasp* .. "when god fearin women get the blues" by Martina McBride. *hehehe* I'm a big fan of country music (not hard core country, but the milder stuff). That song just happens to have a very catchy tune.

Pop punk seems to get me happy. It is bouncy and happy and gets me dancin. Weezer is pretty good too. And I also listen to 2 Live Crew (even though i strongly dislike rap) cuz they are really funny and perverted and it makes me laugh, especially the song 'Dirty Nursery Rhymes'. Oh yeah, I also like "Teenage Dirt Bag' cuz my best friend is named Noel (same as the girl in the song) When i want to get happy i try my hardest to stay away from classic rock and anything really heavy. I generally like Zepplin, Ozzy, and Staind but when im not happy it only makes things worse.

And what is with this trend of really depressing music right now?

My SO and I have an injoke about how it seems A) 90% of the songs on the radio seem to be about breaking up with someone and B) Certain bands only know how to write songs involving breaking up with someone (Limp Bizkit...)

It's sad... That's why I created this thread, though! Woo for music that makes you go bounce instead of *splat*.

I'll have to agree with you on that one. "I've got my body and my mind on the same page, and honey now happiness is all the rage." Makes me smile just thinking about it.
Then there's Sifl and Olly (this old sock puppet show on MTV). I made a mix CD of most of their songs, and I can always put myself in a good mood with it. Greenday's Dookie. The Aquabats... A lot of Smoking Popes songs... Too many to list. Too many to list about this whole topic. Very good question, though.

I panic and hold on tighter, but that makes it worse.
How am I supposed to take it when she says, "This is something I'm going through; it's got nothing to do with you"?

Good Charlotte's self-titled album, every song except for "Screamer" "Change" "Complicated" and "Seasons" make me feel really up and giddy. Those four other songs...they're all really good "Screamer" is my theme song, kinda sad (I cry from it sometimes) "Change" is just the unrequited love ballad, "Complicated" is about their dad who abandoned them and "Seasons" just makes you want a relationship really badly, LoL.

Eh...also, "Ruby Soho" by Rancid makes me feel abnormally happy for some reason. Who *doesn't* love that song? If you've heard it, you love it, ADMIT IT!

I'm forgetting something...crapola...

Um, well, this wasn't it but "The Radio Still Sucks" by the Ataris, too.

Well, if I remember it, I'll post it. Dammit, how do I forget these things!

++Part of a conversation with Benji from Good Charlotte++
Me: Your music means so much to me...
Benji: Really? Thank you. Thank you very much. It means a lot to -me- that you said that.
(This was followed by a hug from Benji.)

I like Ruby Soho, but not because it's a happy song. That song makes me sad. It's about a boy having to leave a girl to be a rock star. It used to make me cry. However, if a song can make me cry, it's got to be good.

Jimmy Buffett!!! He is the only writer of songs about booze and women that I enjoy.

Some songs that crack me up are Love Shack, I'm Too Sexy, and a parody of Alanis Morrisette's song "what if God was one of us" called "What if God smoked canabis?"

Stuff that gets me pumped up is...I really wish I was on my computer so I could see my MP3 list right now...
Conga - Gloria Estafan
Everybody Dance Now - CC Music Factory
Carol of the Bells - Trans Siberian Orchestra
Flagpole Sitta - Harvey Danger
Hockey Music!!!
Sing Sing Sing - by anybody
Minority - Greenday
Sympathy For The Devil - Rolling Stones
most stuff by Boston, their best song is More Than a Feeling.

I like Rock Lobster better than Love Shack, but the B-52's still rock. Lucina's right about 'crazy and German' stuff being good too, and I like most of John Doe's selections, though I'd see them more as gentle music than bouncy.

How could I forget? The ultimate bouncy music is Rob Hubbard's Thing On A Spring theme. Guaranteed to make you feel better, and drive friends, family, and pets insane, in just a matter of minutes. http://members.internettrash.com/milke/c64.mid
And it even sounds cool in Midi format! What could be better?
