Which song makes you happy every time you hear it, and why?

This seems like a good way to stop not posting all the time.

I have many: American Pie, I'm Yours, She's Always A Woman by Billy Joel, Somewhere Over the Rainbow (the version by Israel Kamakawiwoʻole), Cheap Reward by Elvis Costello, Blinded By the Light (either version), Somebody to Love, Forty-Nine, and Bo Rhap by Queen, the Travelling Wilburys... I could go on.

So I shall.

If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out by Cat Stevens and Beside You by Dave Dobbyn always make me feel better. Similarly I Won't Back Down by Tom Petty.

Fuck You by Cee Lo Green because it's just SO MUCH FUN to sing along in the car!

Anything by Elemeno P or Midnight Youth, especially when on the radio and unexpected.

Anything sung by Stephen Colbert or Jon Stewart (and I happen to think Jon can sing just fine when the pressure's off, so there, witness: that one time he sang with Elmo).

Anything with decent vocal harmony.

Most recently, I finally got this album last week and this song is adorable, I've had it stuck in my head for days.

I love lists like this. I especially love reading other people's, because it gives me more music to look into in the future. Not that I need more music in my life... Wait. That's silly. Of course I need more music :D
