No, no, I'm not talking about "Don't Worry, Be Happy." That song actually kind of makes me want to punch somebody.
There are some songs out there that just make you happy. I really don't know what it is, but when I hear these songs, I get that instant feel-good feeling. And my head starts to bop back and forth. And then my whole body starts to sway. And before you know it, I'm almost full out dancing whilst belting out the lyrics as loud as I can.
What just me?
If you've never done that, you should. I don't recommend you do that at work in your cubicle, however. Perhaps in the car, by yourself - that's my favorite time.
So, here are the happy songs that have made my list. I dare you to listen to them and not move your body to the music in any way shape or form and not feel somewhat lifted after listening.
It's Your Thing - The Isley Brothers
Pennies From Heaven - Louis Prima

Dancing in the Moonlight - King Harvest
What's your go to feel good song?
