Lord of The Dance
Walking in Memphis -Mark Cohn
Annies Song -John Denver
Day by Day
Morning has Broken
Spring from the Four Seasons
The BBC Radio 4 Theme Tune (A medley of various tunes)

When you are down and need a little cheering up put on some tunes from the 20's and 30's. They'll put a smile on your face, a spring in your walk, and sunshine in your day :-)

Walkin in Memphis is an awesome tune. The rest of that CD is right up there as well with Silver Thunderbird and True Companion and pretty much all the rest !! :)

But in keeping with the question posed by the thread, my favorite feel good Happy Music usually comes from Jimmy Buffet, One Particular Harbor, Pencil Thin Mustache et al.....

John, I love "Walking in Memphis"! It took me hours to be able to play that on the piano...something about the syncopation...I just had to learn hands separately, then let them go on autopilot! You (or *I*) don't hear the intricate rhythm just listening to Mark sing it.

I'm insane. Happy music to me is when I'm in a session and I "see" the little dancers dancing in my head and they're all having a great time tapping feet in perfect time... Doesn't happen that often but to me the answer would be any good jig, reel, hornpipe, etc. in the right atmosphere.

Another happy music to me was when I used to do a bit of busking playing mostly morris dance tunes on melodeon and a kid passing by would just spontaniously skip or dance.

I don't get the same sort of buzz or happiness out of listening.

Here's one that's a bit different. "Happiness is being together" John McLaughlin with his band Shakti. A beautiful blending of acoustic music from India and the West (Euro-USA). One of the Happiest tunes I know of. How about "Shanty" Johnathan Edwards. Puts a smile on my face. Man, am I all over the musical map or what?!

dwditty- Dat Dere (Oscar Brown Jr.) Yeah! Man, That's a great one. I'd forgotten about that guy. Takes me back to good memories living with a few crazy roommates.

The absolute happiest American fiddle tune ever is a tune called Texas Fair. It was recorded by the Leake County Revelers and has been reissued on the Document label. The second happiest fiddle tune is Happy Acres Two-step, I don't know of any recordings of it. (It's a Canadian tune, I think). Also, Buck Owens: Down on the Corner of Love, My Heart Skips a Beat, Tiger By The Tail, Waitin' in Your Welfare Line. Dean Martin: Memories Are Made of This, That's Amore. Anything by the Coasters. Anything by the Drifters. Almost anything by Fats Domino.

I thought of John Prine but his stuff always has a bit of irony. A little bit sweet and sour. Jim Croce and Tom Paxton have a mix of happy and otherwise. Neil Young on the other hand, in his 500 songs, has written few happy ones.

Remember the Lovin' Spoonful? Mungo Jerry, "In the Summertime?" Happy Happy stuff!

Sugar Ray and Foo Fighters have done some happy stuff.

I'm with M.Ted way back up there- I can't imagine lines like

Went back home; Lord my home was lonesome.
Missd my mother; she was gone.
All my brothers, sisters crying-
What a home, so sad and alone

as being a happy song!

Sometimes in a song circle we get into a bluesy, death and destruction mode. Eventually - when it gets to be my turn in the circle- my decree is that in the next round each one has to sing the happiest song he or she can think of. Usually breaks the mood.

The music's good and the company is better, and the beer is even better!!! 8 Real ales at any one time, 4 real scrumpys, millions of fruit wines and foreign beers. Enough there for anyone's taste.
