    What song makes you instantly happy?

    Everyone has a song or two that immediately makes them smile. For me, it's B.O.B. by Outkast. It gets me happy and moving every time I hear it.

    Confession time: That new-ish song "Shut Up and Dance With Me" by Walk the Moon makes me giddy as a schoolgirl, which I think is the target audience for that song.

    Others include:

    "The Boxer" by Carbon Leaf
    "Silk Pyjamas" by Thomas Dolby
    "Kick Drum Heart" by Avett Brothers
    "Oh, Look What the Sun Did!" by Josh Rouse and the Long Vacations
    "I can make all the stadiums rock."

    Okay, a couple:

    "Dirty Creature" by Split Enz (a song about depression. loses points for also reminding me of a long passed time.)
    "Australia" by The Shins. No relation.

    For the record it's not the lyrical content of Inner City blues that floats my boat but the arrangement is IMO amazing and as groovy as any 70s song out there

    That definitely applies. It also means that another 30 minutes of musical magic is coming.

    I also get really happy listening to The Bend by Real Estate. It is the polar opposite of B.O.B. but still wonderful.
