Happy Songs That Will Instantly Put You In A Good Mood

Don’t lie. You’ve definitely spent a night in dancing to “Call Me Maybe” while cleaning your room. Or, at least, to Taylor Swift.
Nothing has as much power as a feel-good song, which can transform any mundane task into an epic feat worthy of a montage. Luckily, even if you tire of one song, there is always another that will inevitably lift your spirits. Here are the happiest songs we know that will always put you in a good mood. Blast these while driving down a highway in a convertible. Lip sync to them in your room (with a hair brush). Dance to these while doing the dishes or plug them in when you really need to get shit done.
From classic oldies to modern pop songs, these happy tunes are ones you actually want to get stuck in your head.
“A-Punk” by Vampire Weekend

This exuberant song encapsulates everything that makes Vampire Weekend, Vampire Weekend: Intelligent and somewhat opaque lyrics, interesting and unexpected musical choices, and total catchiness.


“Feel It Still” by Portugal, the Man

“Feel It Still” begins with a powerful bass, strumming its way into the opening of the catchiest song of 2017. This track made the cut of Barack Obama’s favorite songs of 2017, and it should be on yours.


“I Will Survive,” Gloria Gaynor

If this song doesn’t make you happy we don’t know what will!

“Man on the Moon,” Zella James

When you’re in that honeymoon phase with someone, you have that giddy feeling of experiencing a whole new world — kind of like how space astronauts must have felt on the moon. This exuberant song will lift you to dreamy places.

“How Sweet it Is” by James Taylor

A lovely and earnest love song.
