Hi.

I'd rather not go into too much detail but I'd be very grateful if some of you could give some thought to the songs /tracks that cheer you up or feel alive .

I'm thinking melody-wise not wordy songs , words are irrelevant in this instance .

For starters I will go with - At the Top of the World by Imagine Dragons ...

Generals and Majors - XTC. It's the guitar riffs and the general bounciness of it that do it for me more than anything.

I don't really have many happy and uplifting songs.

However, this music video starts out sad, but you can't help but be smiling and laughing by the end of it:

Not much of a contribution, but you already had my answer OP I just went through a breakup and On Top Of The World picks me right up again. It's amazing!

Also the beat of this song makes me happy, even though the words say a different story http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OUdOG5IWBE0

'The Boiler' by The Specials is a really cheery track.
It's chilled and perfect for Summer.

Animal - Def Leppard
Baggy Trousers - Madness
Canned Heat - Jamiroquai
Cosmic Girl - Jamiroquai
Don't Call Me Baby - Madison Avenue
Fairground - Simply Red
Feel So Good - Jamiroquai
Home - Simply Red
Little L - Jamiroquai
Paradise City - Guns 'n' Roses

As you can see, there's a pretty wide selection of genres (I have very varied tastes) and there's quite a lot of Jamiroquai in there (they're my favourite band, hence my username).
