Posted in: Musicouching by Ali Kahn on August 15th, 2009 | 0 Comments

This is a list of ten songs that will make even the most melancholy crack a smile.

Good Morning Sunshine – Hair

A relic from the 60s, yes, but this song is probably the definition of happyness. The sun is shining, and it’s a beautiful day!

Feel The Love – Cut Copy

Where the first song is straight from the 60’s, this song hails from the 1980s, baby. Synthesizers galore, this band is shameless in their pursuit of pure fun.

Ambivalence Avenue – Bibio

Nostaglia is perhaps one of the most pure emotions, and everyone has happy memories of their childhood. This song brings to mind those days of warm summers full of hanging out with the kids in the neighborhood.

ABC – Jackson Five

Many would not have thought that this big voiced kid would grow up to be such a superstar, but listening to this song, it makes perfect sense.

Friday I’m In Love – The Cure

The Cure is strange in that they’ve made some of the darkest, most tormented music ever, and some of the most uplifting and bright music ever. A joyous song made by people with problems.

Move Your Feet – Junior Senior

Don’t stop, (don’t stop) don’t stop, the beat!
I can’t stop, (can’t stop) can’t stop the beat!
I won’t stop, won’t stop (won’t stop) the beat!

Clouds – The Rumble Strips

A song about lying on your back, looking at the clouds.

God Only Knows – The Beach Boys

A Classic song about a girl and and boy and knowledge only a divine force can posess.

The Perfect Me – Deerhoof

An asian woman singing incomprehensibly with a loud and chaotic backup band. This is the future, and it sounds wonderful.

And She Was – The Talking Heads

This song is pure happiness, and I would not be suprised if it was actually about use some form of psychadelic drug.
